I'm just thinking about how cheap AGS will be the day after the snapshot.

Great Video. Thanks Daniel!

I wanna say one thing here: It seems to me that I often criticize things here and even more often ask stupid questions (especially about the technical parts). But in the end I am a big believer. I think the reason that there is a lot of critical questions and comments is that people want to be as sure as possible about the bets they (already) made on the succes of I3 software. No one has to say / ask something except for social / community / fun reasons if all is fine and in line with his/her I3 investments. I criticize to provoke counter arguments only when I am already highly interested/invested...

So thanks to you Dan and the whole I3 team behind the scenes, especially for the unseen passion and commitement you bring to the table! I got your back like the whole community does  :)

Could we get this up on Coindesk?

Thanks CLains - looking into that.  In the meantime, you can review at:

I3 are awesome! That being said, I think ultimately one has to accept that the whole structure of starting a business conspires and holds you hostage to staring into the abyss while chewing glass. There's constantly a threat of failure and there are zillions of nagging little details that will keep cropping up.. One has to keep cool and marathon that shit out with zenceptional grit, and that's what I believe I3 are capable of!

On skimming through,

1. On the top it says by Dr. Charles W. Evans & Daniel Larimer,
On the bottom it says By Stan Larimer
2. There are several spacing errors on the page after periods.
3. "Watch for falling PTS" might over emphasize the point and cause a harder crash? The main headline should be positive, PTS holders are getting something, the fall is a side-effect.

Sorry if I'm asking silly question but I'd like to further clarification on the Feb 28th snapshot :

1) At what time exactly will the snapshot be taken on Feb 28th (please specify GMT or EST)?
2) Why is it recommended that PTS movement, in regards to your wallet, be halted until March 2nd?
3) Are the extra 2 days (Feb 28th - Mar 2nd) going to be used for final block confirmations from all
    those transfers that will occur *right* before the Feb 28th snapshot?

Just a smaller miner here that wants to maximize his holdings when the  BitShares XT transfer happens!

Thanks in advance for the clarification and finite details  :D

The snapshot will include the last block on the 28th GMT time.
Not sure about the other two

I've always assumed the extra 2 days are just a conservative safety buffer.

subtlety: last block means last block with network timestamp of February 28. Network timestamps have some slop in them:
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Block_timestamp
block timestamps are not necessarily chronological, and can be as much as 2 hours off of the network consensus time.
so we won't really know what the last block with a February 28 time stamp is until sometime a couple of hours into March 1. I think the March 2 dates is to allow all time stamps and blocks to settle.

Just to verify - is this midnight on the 28th the transition between the 27th & 28th or the 28th and the 1st?
