In my first post, I did mean to refer to user created assets - perhaps in other trading DACs - not the main BTS-X chains which for me would immediately have a higher level of trust.
For example, when user created assets are allowed, a global banana company might (possibly) decide to create BANANAS as a chain, and although they might intend for their pricing to match the global banana price in kg quite precisely, others may initially have trouble taking the asset seriously.
In that situation, as a unqualified trading noob, I would guess that digital bananas might be 'offloaded' or traded at a lower price, forcing the asset to trade at a lower price than the real value of bananas, as confidence grows in the process this might then be expected to more closely approximate the real price. Is this flawed logic?
Anyway, I was imagining that the convergence of asset values will surely depend, perhaps *initially* foremost, on Trust. Once systems are established and DACs are trusted, this issue I would expect to diminish rapidly.
This is a potential problem for new players in the market, as surely they might be disadvantaged by a market leader effect once others are established; I wondered how this effect might be minimized. But then this leads on to how to win over Trust quickly.
I know these issues may have been raised before, sorry if I have missed posts covering this lot already.
