I just watched the replay of the 8/28 webinar and was disappointed in the rigid method required to obtain shares.
I've been loosely tuned into bitshares since I heard Micheal Dean discuss it in his freedom feens program when he jumped off the namecoin wagon and onto bitshares. I'm very interested in the domain registration DAC and of course several others.
My issue is how to get involved. I really, really dislike banks with a passion and really don't want to start off in the crypto space with ties to the corrupt banking world. Bitshares holds the promise of total freedom of finances, but NOT if transactions, even if only initial transactions, are tied to the banks controlled by the oligarchs.
I suspect the answer I want is somewhere down the road, but I wanted to ask the question to be sure. A related question is when will bitUSD and bitGLD DACs come online?
I'm not looking to invest much, I haven't got it. But I would like to drop an oz or 2 (40000 - 80000 bitshares) into this if I can find a way to do it.
