This is a BitShares Breaking Event Alert.
DAC Sun Limited (DSL), an independent Hong Kong based DAC developer you can find at DACSunlimited.com, is in the process of releasing the first official BitShares X (BTSX) chain.
Their official chain is now up and running and being tested by experienced volunteers from the forum. This is expected to be the real chain running from the official genesis block and any trading will be real and permanent.
Because this is a brand new chain, everyone should use caution until it is clear that everything is working properly.
This is a pre-launch to enable final testing by experienced users before calling attention to it by the general public. It may take DSL a few more days to get all the instructions published, web pages polished, and make sure that everything is fully functional before making their official high-profile public launch.
Note that the BitShares Toolkit core developers will continue to add new features to the toolkit and work with the community evaluate them in parallel on our test network in an ongoing series of forum-based Dry Runs of a future release. However the BitShares X release from DACSunlimited.com is not a test.
It is the real thing, featuring many of the final features except for BitUSD and its related functionality. These will appear in an upgrade expected later this summer.
DAC Sun Limited is working with several exchanges that we expect to begin trading BTSX soon. But if you want to get an early look at the real chain running from the official genesis block, and experiment with some peer to peer trading you can download the exciting new BTSX wallet here:
Pay attention to the following sites for more breaking information:
Our Chinese partners (dacsunlimited.com) have launched the real BTS X network and you can now download the real, legitimate, BTS X wallet from their website (or Github).
Right now the wallet is available prior to the public release that DAC Sun is planning. The binaries downloaded from https://github.com/dacsunlimited/bitsharesx/releases/tag/0.2.0
are safe to trust with your private keys as they are built from the code hosted on the same github repo.
This wallet is based upon our latest BitShares XT code base and has BitAsset support disabled. Their plan is to upgrade the chain as we release new stable updates to the XT dry run tests.
Exchanges are working to integrate this chain.
