As soon as BitShares 2.0 comes out, they will begin stripping clones of all their BTS and making private blockchains for business specific purposes. No harm in that. Just watch the global acceptance of crypto as the free norm grow, and smile knowing that the release of this technology into the wild will spread "trust" globally and root out "unfairness".
Good thing that we have our "network" that cannot be stripped. Our human capital that supports the original BitShares smartchain is an intense asset. Currently, the Graphene tech is so cutting edge that it cannot be cloned. After we have had a stable system for a while, like Ripple, then the planet will hit mach 2. Imagine a million unique incarnations of Graphene on the scene all with radically different shapes, sizes, thrills, and prices of admission. Some of very high quality, and others closed and seedy. The global crypto standard is about to be unleashed into the wild.
This is the definition of why growing our network is the best way that a crypto community can add value to itself, and why bitcoin's value is enormous compared to us.
Who ever said that bitcoin holders can't be BitShare owners.
