It seems this budding industry can go in one of two directions:
a) One blockchain that lesser blockchains plug into.
b) Many blockchains that stand on their own and "talk" to each other (i.e. DPoS).
Bitcoiners want BTC to be THE blockchain and everything else will plug into it.
Etherium wants it to be their blockchain.
BitShares wants everyone to use DPoS to create blockchains that stand on their own.
I'm here obviously because I see the BitShares philosophy as being the best way forward but would like to hear everyone elses thoughts on this.
