WSJ article.
« on: September 22, 2014, 05:01:42 AM »

WSJ article mentions BitsharesX. I think they got their fact wrong.

rofl, the person had one job, to list one fact and blew it.

joke is on us though  :-\

Does wsj have a "corrections" or errata section? A spot where they mention inaccuracies in previous issues? We could probably get them to publish a correction. That way bitshares gets mentioned in 2 issues.

It's not completely wrong but not as accurate as it could be. Like CLains said it's not exactly all their fault. BitSharesX, BTSX, BitShares-PTS...to someone following dozens of crypto technologies I can understand mixing that up.

They must. I originally saw this posted on r/bitcoin, where they were making fun if the title because they spelled decipher as decifer. You can still see the misspelling in the URL.

This piece one of the most impartial pieces about crypto I've ever seen in a major publication. Because it looks like the author actually did some due diligence instead of making up a bunch of crap, I sent him an e-mail letting him know all the points I saw in it that might be inaccurate or misleading. He expressed interested in writing a follow up article next week.
