1. I agree DPOS is necessary for PTS, why can't you just hard fork PTS and keep using the PTS name instead of PTS2? Leaving both PTS and PTS2 in the market is like leaving one of your child in the wild wide and die. Just announce a client hard fork and do the mapping. PTS miner will disappear and everyone upgrade their client.
2. Giving the rest PTS to marketing??? LOL. Let's look what the marketing team has done with AGS fund (below are what I found with a quick glance of the spending spreadsheet).
•They sell PTS in market value and pay the salary to Brian, Emily (who is she), and all things.

At least I know that loyal miners won't sell that quick, does the I3 has the authority to sell the BTC and PTS into $?
•Giving 5.5BTC+160PTS to super3 and check out what http://invictus.io
looks like now
•Spent $14000+$7000+$1478=$22478 on the website development, and we are waiting for the version 6 of the bitshares.org. Why it ends up that BM doing all the job everytime? Are you planning to have version 60 of the website? And also using the PTS doing this kind of thing?
•What kind of marketing are you doing in St. Martin Can I join the team?

To me, all of these spending is not clear. Look what mastercoin foundation is doing: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AtCyUJvk_IyNdGpVcnpBN2tOczFmbVRnck5TWjZuRFE&usp=sharing#gid=0
After 5 months marketing, BTS still remain unknown to lots of BTCers. I3 need to think of the problem instead of taking every cent from community. PTS used to be the top 5 in marketcap at the end of last year and there were no marketing. After DPOS PTS, GIVE the remaining PTS to DEVELOPERS!!! Good product is the best marketing. And we really should change the AGS spending to bounty based instead of salary based (except developers). What I see is 5 core dev working really hard day and night, with another 20 ppl sucking AGS money for doing little thing.
