Great start. :)

I would say "Price stability" instead of just "stability." And delete the "all" after the plus sign.

Great initiative.  Couple things:

1) The first point I think we can do without the slam on Mt. Gox. Though well deserved.
2) I don't think we should bate hackers with a challenge like ,"Cannot be hacked" :)

I think it suffices to say something like, "It is a decentralized derivatives exchange that solves many of the security issues inherent in centralized exchanges. Mainly that bad actors at a centralized exchange may steal funds and centralized exchanges are a big target for hackers. With BitShares your funds are always stored securely on the blockchain."

Good initiative!

I would categorize by it's functions:
1) It's a trading platform
2) It's an exchange
3) It's a vault
4) It provides crypto currencies with built in price stability

Other functions?

Wow... the BitShares branding is terrible. Who's running the marketing show here?

Suggestion: client should be downloadable at x.bitshares.org -- not a seperate URL that's ugly as all hell.

When the banding matrix is so complex that average users cannot understand it, is it their fault because they're stupid and haven't informed themselves about the terminology or is it the companies fault for not understanding the average user?

This is where infographics like yours can help.

Near 0 costs for transactions. Compare to Visa debit card fees and Scott trade fees

Mass adoption will drive down %markup for fees esp for small transactions like coffee thus reducing costs for businesses and consumers

Very good observation. What you're saying is that trading using BitShares Exchange is near zero fees; similar to how Chinese exchanges operate on the zero fee model to drive user adoption. BitShares offers near zero trading fees + all coins/assets stay on the blockchain (secure, trustless).

I think we should be careful with the "Transaction is anonymous. Nobody can see you balance ... "  As for now transaction are as anonymous as bitcoin and "Transactions still combine inputs and send the "change" back to the address the funds came from"

I'm working on a "What is BitShares?" infographic and would like some input.

I've identified 3 main benefits:

  • Exchange decentralization.
  • Transaction anonymity.
  • Stability.

Furthermore, maybe say

"A Currency that pays you interest, just for holding it."    (do not say no banks needed (need other peoples opinions)
