BitsharesX, a more elegant 'technology' for a more civilized age.....

I think 'weapon' would also fit quite nicely.

A variation of first version: "Join The Greatest Financial Experiment Since Bitcoin"

I'm not digging the use of 'experiment'. Bitshares is way past experimenting. Shit is getting real.

'Join - Greatest - Financial - Bitcoin' all good.

Will ruminate, but I think an effective hook will play on cronyism/corruption/centralization rather than 'join the revolution'.

When it comes to money/finance, folks are too conservative for revolting and candidly, too uneducated regarding modern finance to really grasp what is wrong with the status quo.

They want a soft sell that allows them to transition to new, easier services with a large group of shiny, happy friends while feeling vaguely superior/smarter than the average Joe.

Long term, average users of the Bitshares platform are going understand DPOS as much the average internet user understands HTTP.

Some friendly, non-threatening hooks that are in line with popular sentiment on the status quo:

"CEO not required."

"Dear CEO... it's not you, it's me."

"I trust Bitshares because I don't have to trust Bitshares."

Etc.

Definitely steer clear of all associations with war, violence, etc.

These things are all trappings of the status quo; coercion, corruption, centralization.

Bitshares is not picking a fight.

Bitshares is checkmate.

It absolutely IS an experiment. The word "experiment" makes crypto nerds like us drool. Why do you think bitcoin captured the imagination of millions of people? Because it was and still is a grand experiment.

I would venture that Bitshares was an experiment designed to validate market-pegged assets and, by happy accident, DPOS.

The experiment is now complete - pegs work, as does DPOS. There is a great deal of tweaking and refinement to be do done, but proof of concept has been satisfied.

I would agree with marketing 'participation in an experiment' during the presale/PTS/AGS stage.

Now I think it is time to give the devs their due. It works!
