Is it just me, or does Counterparty sound as complicated as BitsharesX does to other people?

Does anyone get what the point of it is? Their genesis block by burning BTC scheme sounded nuts.

Counterparty's spirit is entwined with Bitcoin from magical burn genesis ceremony.



Counterparty builds on, upgrades, and enhances Bitcoin - Bitcoin 2.0. This "gem" marketing strategy stands completely on its own though.

I've got a http://counterwallet.co set up, I like their software / UI. From my perspective, it is just user issued assets on top of the BTC blockchain. There are some projects like Swarm, LTBc, FoldingCoin, etc. that issue their assets on top of Counterparty.

Of course I would rather use BitShares ME for such things but until that is realized I have had fun dabbling on the XCP exchanges.

Counter party's volume is shockingly low according to this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=789547.0

If anyone owns any counterparty or mastercoin, I would seriously think about selling them. There is too much competition in the asset issuance space, and other coins with asset exchanges also have numerous other features along with simply having asset exchanges. So, I don't see them being able to compete in the long run.

They also have price feeds which can be used for betting and contracts for difference.

I like the counterparty project. They, like bitshares, have a professional (full time) team (smaller than Bitshares). The main issue I have with it is that it is based on BTC. But they said that they would change to something not BTC if Bitcoin fails...

I own XCP, I have put them in cold storage and don't plan to sell any in the near future.
The devs are outstanding (very competent and honest) and the protocol is on top of the most widly use ledger.

That looks interesting.  Why don't we do a similar DAC, or something similar with your usual nice economic models and dividends and airdrop to AGS-PTS?

BitSharesME would be comparable but not enough man power to do that atm.

I was contacted as part of BBS show to have these people on ....   Since I had decided to basically give up on other bitcoin 2.0 projects unless they seemed legitimately innovative i don't respond.  The webpages remind me a lot of each other.
