I know we have a general investment guide but it's not very focused. This thread is for people who believe Bitshares is very underpriced, should be at least $1, and who want to invest accordingly though the Bitshares interface.
A lot of us here think the price of BTSX should be at least $1 (some even think $10 is reasonable) and do not plan to sell below a certain threshold. Since a lot of us are bulls wouldn't it be helpful if there was a guide showing us how to invest in our self interest using the currently confusing Bitshares X interface? A Youtube video could accomplish this if anyone wants to provide the example on the test net.
In Bitshares X right now there is no built in help guides, no tool tips, etc. What we need is a guide which explains in plain english without complicated terminology like derivatives shorts, margins, market making. All of this terminology has to be explained because even seasoned crypto traders who might grasp the concepts somewhat will never have seen any market like this before.Visual step by step guides are needed
If I think Bitshares is worth at least $1 then how would I go about shorting BitUSD to reflect my prediction? If BitUSD crashes in price vs BTSX as bulls expect then at what point is profit made? Is it made only if it crashes to the point where BTSX is equal to $1 in BitUSD or are profits made all the way to $1?
Here is a chance for bulls who understand the terminology to explain what they intend to do, why, and how it would work in the Bitshares interface. One idea I could suggest if the help guides are ever included in Bitshares X is that the user of Bitshares X should be able to choose an investment mode.
Something like: Bear mode, Bull mode, Market maker mode
Then from there the interface should adjust to the mode they are in to make it easier for the user. As it is now it's very powerful but it also seems very easy to mess up due to the interface having a lot going on. Having different modes would reduce complexity and help to adjust the interface to the needs of different psychological mind states of investors. In the future if there are information feeds then they would be tailored to these different modes.
The reason this is good is because the easier it is for people to figure out that they don't have to cash out anymore, they don't have to worry about fiat or even BTC anymore, the better it will be for all of our share prices. Less people will leave the ecosystem and if people get bullish it would reflect within Bitshares X.
