Seems like Counterparty has the advantage already: http://www.wired.com/2014/07/overstock-and-cryptocurrency/

Nah, that was just how that particular article was framed. From what I've heard Overstock had been in talks with NXT before that, and I believe BitShares has had talks with them as well (not sure how in depth, though).

Personally, I feel the timing may be right, what with Bitshares holding the #4 spot firm and the ridiculous advantages Bitshares has in this space (esp. the name alone, which I will forever believe is Bitshares' #1 marketing tool and leg-up over the competition). Also, the coincidence that both Dan and Patrick are 2 of the 4 keynote speakers at this event...sounds like a match made in heaven to me!

One can only wish and hope but I don't think it will have to do with us. However whats good for one crypto can be good for all. Look at the adoption rate of btc since Newegg started accepting them.
It will just take one company to break the ice and have a good experience.

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

Hmmm...

I suspect that Overstock is going to fork the code and announce their own platform. This would explain why they are querying the community about how to build one. There is a clue I found where they were seeking to hire an expert programmer with a resume a lot like Dan.

This isn't to say that Dan is involved but that Overstock is seeking someone with a skillset which is remarkable in similarity. It leads me to believe they are going to build their own platform and why not? They have the money to do it.

Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

Well, that actually is believable. I don't see why they would use anything other than a custom platform.

We are talking about a big billion dollar company and typically they go the proprietary route on these things. For example IBM is launching their own blockchain technology.

In my opinion if I'm right it's a really good sign for the industry. It shows the industry is maturing and that big companies are willing to invest resources into growing and maintaining it.

Bytemaster and Patrick Byrne have sat in a room and talked it out one-to-one right?? If after that, he at this point in time commits to any technology other than the BitShares toolkit for implementing cryptostocks, then I just... I have no words.

You right it would be fun except :

I wish. Unfortunately, if Dan signed an NDA he would most likely just not comment rather than lie to the community. Now I am hoping the announcement has nothing to do with cryptostocks.
