Came across this item on wired.com that mentions BitShares "Overstock’s Radical Plan to Reinvent the Stock Market With Bitcoin"

And the original webpage at o.info by Overstock ... "How to issue a crypto security"

Good prominent mention, however I think o.info is user content just like Wikipedia in which case all of the above is purely a speculation that O will consider BitShares to incorporate those plans.

That said, if big players get behind the idea, the risk climate will completely change. History shows that regulators like to regulate in favor of what big powerful players do.

How can we encourage big players to get behind our platform?

We have the technology and we have to sell it. One way of selling it is business to business.

There's another thread where Stan talks about he and Dan down in St. Barts Martin meeting with some heavy weights from the marketing field. Plans are brewing.  I'll post the link if I can find that thread again.

He is the inventor of the infomercial. I looked up computing companies which used the infomercial and Apple did.

I don't know how effective these were and only bring it up because these infomercials are extremely well done.

Forgive the cynicism, but this article barely mentions bitshares and when it does it does almost as an afterthought.  Counterparty, on the other hand....wow, they zergged the shit out of that article. That includes the author. How can bitshares always take a back seat to these inferior products?

Dont get me wrong...I own some of all of them, but NXT is the only platform that gets close to comparing.

Ordinary transactions will have to compete with stocks. It doesn't make sense.

Yes, we may be an afterthought in the article, but not behind the scenes.  We're actively in talks with Overstock - that's all I'm allowed to say now.  Also, I just found out this week that the guy hosting this event in St. Martin is the very one who met with Byrne and told him to contact us.  These cats are connected at the highest levels, so things are brewing.  I predict this week will lead to some of the biggest breakthroughs for BitShares. -B
