OMG - Ripple can fall down today!

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

And if that happens Bytemaster should make a video discussing it and explaining to new users what to expect from Bitshares X.

I think its extremely impressive to already be challenging Litecoin before market pegged assets have even launched. That means we aren't even at the peak of where we could going but just the initial influx.

A month from now where will we be?

Normally that would be true but why would you buy up all the Bitshares and then sell them before all the best features kick in? I can't see anyone selling them in the next few weeks unless the peg doesn't work.

If the peg works then everyone is going to have to buy more and more. It's the utility of it which will make people want it and the fact that you can get +5% just holding BitUSD? There will be sales for sure but people will lose money in the market too and will buy more Bitshares.

Some reasons to be confident is there is Minebitshares which comes online pretty soon. If it works as intended then there will be even more buying pressure as we will have a Blackcoin style virtual mining pool.  There are also other DACs which are set to launch soon and plenty of time for Bytemaster to make major upgrades.

Once the peg holds (if it holds) then Bytemaster and team are free to really go all out on the features because the hard problem will be solved.

It means the market is betting on market pegged assets working... which means they will work :)

Part of what we have to do (delegates and participants in the Bitshares community), is create demand.

For example I think we have to create on-ramps so people can actually acquire Bitshares. Minebitshares is one way but we need Gateways, ATMs, anything to help people get a taste of Bitshares X.

But we also have to think of ideas on how we can encourage people to never want to cash out. Having BitUSD with 5% interest will make it so people who want to protect their Bitcoin earnings can simply buy BitUSD5 from within BTER. That is one less reason to cash out.

If there are way more reasons for people to store their wealth in Bitshares, buy Bitshares, and few reasons to cash out beyond paying for upkeep, then few will cash out because there is more incentive/rationality in not doing so.

So if you like the direction the price is going one of the things I learned from other communities is it's a continuous effort to keep drumming up demand. The way to drum up demand is to increase the utility of Bitshares X or BitAssets. If you're running a business then you can offer a discount in people who pay you in BitGLD for instance. Stop accepting Bitcoin at a discount and give the discount to BitGLD.

I agree. Whoever is promoting this in China deserves all of our thanks. And of course, thanks to the BitShares team: it's your hard work that makes this possible.

Save that screenshot for use in memes.

Use memes to convince Chinese participants to switch from Litecoin to Bitshares while it's still cost effective.
