Can you ever have enough money?

Also, Invictus may be philosophically inclined to allow regular people to invest, because the Silicon Valley model really excludes almost everybody from participating, and the SEC won't let any stock get listed until its a bad deal for the average guy (it's to protect us).



I was just thinking, if Invictus does have a lot of BTC or cash, they could just put it into the BitSharesX bank, and a giant reserve of liquidity would really go a long way towards making the product safe and attractive.

Okay, then I wonder if we will get the same ROI as VCs, then. In any case, I'm excited about the future of Invictus, so long as its future isn't an episode of American Greed.

True. Though the word "one" is a bit troubling in this case, since VCs generally agree that a tech company w/o a cofounder is a bad idea.

I often wondered what the business model of invictus is. Your VC money must have one ;)
Obvious would be to buy into PTS/AGS/BTS early?
Anything else to it?

Acquisition of JP Morgan LOL

One isn't necessarily referring to a single particular person.

There is only one solution. bytemaster needs more lifetimes! I have an idea.

Quick, run to the Cubensis Castle and fetch some 1UP mushrooms!

In the Roanoke Times topic BM said that the VC money went into PTS and AGS and increasing PTS and AGS value are the way to make money for I3. See https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=3492.msg43946#msg43946 This is at least how I interpreted it.
