this may be a stupid question, sorry if it's already been answered... bitshares me:
say a person came up with a great way to monetize... anything, and was able to convince the general public of that.
people buy shares issued by this person, giving them the funds to do... whatever it is they do.
say that person ends up being successful and makes a lot of money.
in the beginning, in order to make people want to buy their stock, will their be a means in place by which people can promise a certain amount of whatever money they make goes back to shareholders? say dude's stock is a success. will there be an "investor address" where he can send a thousand bitshares/BTC/whatever and the system automatically distributes that proportionally to shareholders (i think peershares is planning something like this with peercoin)?
or will all potential profit from holders of this persons stock come exclusively through stock price based on supply and demand (making it basically a platform for betting on people's success)?
or will it be the later option, but people wanting to reward their investors can just buy back their stock, driving up the price-- this seems like the simplest way to go about it?
