Exactly my point. Based on the small % that is sold, this is THE MARKET CAP!!!! If you are buying ether right now you are paying... 500 TRILLION BITCOIN for it! :)

The ether crowdsale is on the news everywhere, while btsx release is still in silence. I think the bad marketing/PR during the past half an year has killed bitshares project, or need a long long time to make up the loss.

I'm pretty sure that is wrong.

They're scaling the supply so that 80% goes to presale.
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

Yes, it is wrong - supply is virtually infinite. Basically, there is inflation and the total supply is still an astronomical number.

80% goes to presale at the beginning, but then all goes to miners which will create massive inflation. It could work, if it becomes the worlds reserve currency, then yes, it doesn't matter presale got reduced to 5% it's still massive. And more fairly distributed than a 100% presale. But still high, from trading perspective, I would not put much in it, it will drop after they go liquid, it's a guarantee.

It's kind of funny how they model the miners to be that much better holders than the purchasers.

Might not be that bad actually - miners = adoption. So long as the inflation is combined with increase in the market cap, that's fine. But they are offsetting a lot of the risk onto the purchasers.

i.e. not worth initial purchase in my mind. wait for it to be liquid. I'll still probably get a few BTC just for the novelty.
