easy to use: give me your duck id
nobody forget it, easy to remember
logo friendly
doge effect on community and widespread adoption
name are catchy and fun

and going one step further why dont use the duck for all DACs

Personally I'm not that fond of the IQ-test as some kind of metric for humans. Even though I'm supposedly part of the top 10% I don't see myself as particularly intelligent. I also find the questions asked during those tests very limited in scope and hardly conclusive.

Also if the barrier to entry is a high IQ-score, than that might be a serious problem for mass adoption and success.

I Agree with the first part about the IQ think... just consider my words like an metaphor or an analogy...
About problem for mass adoption I disagree.If that was true we would had the same problems with tcp-ip adoption from the mass. As we know the mass adopted it even if the majority dont even know what it is...  The barrier entry exists only for the code "writers" founders/devs.... (sorry for my bad English)

Sorry guys I'm not getting it.
What is this post supposed to say?

We should call a DAC a DAC?
A long explanation why we shouldn't use mining?
Or is it just a way to explain The DAC concept?


This thread was about the problems and confusion that occurs when we try to think about and explain the new concepts and technologies that are being developed. And that we need metaphors to get into the subject, eventhough the metaphor is not an accurate one.

One such metaphor is in fact "DAC" (something you could think of as a distributed autonomous company, but in reality is something completely different, but we do not yet have the words to describe adequately), that was chosen to ease people into a new concept/world. But at the same time there are dangers to using metaphors, because people might take them literally. For example naming your crypto-currency "fuel" for contracts, which results into having to pay environmental tax for burning fuel and needing licenses for handling hazardous substances.

Then I pointed out that the use of Star-Wars and Star-trek references might not be clear to everyone. To which Stan pointed out, that we should be open-minded and alert to all cultures (very liberal interpretation by me). To which I responded that it might not be a bad idea to map out culturally different points of view, which seems to touch on the topic of this thread.

The only thing I understood from Numericos post was +5%, so you'll have to ask him to elaborate/translate.

I say that if Grandma can understand what you are trying to explain then you are doing a great job at explaining something. The easier it is for someone to understand a new concept the less resistance to it they will have. That leads a faster adoption rate.

The problem is that people tend to understand each other if they are at the same or close  IQ level... it is obvious that Larimer has a big distance from the average IQ level. Its a matter of time that the smartest "writers" of the crypto community adapts his ideas, if not allready...  but it can't be obvious right now... only history will proof it (as always)... and the good think about the crypto history is that the most of the "writers" will be still alive to enjoy the glory...

If we are introducing trustees then this is no longer decentralized exchange.

Have the same feeling like you...

Vitalik Buterin makes an analogy that ethereum is like a CPU that can make everything insteed of bitshares thats behave more like an ASIC... Thoughts?  :)

Does it seem to anyone else that V-man and Hoskinson seem to be all over the place? Are they ever going to develop this Ethereum concept of theirs or just keep talking about it? And does anybody understand at this point where they're getting their funding?

You really believe behind the concept is V-man ??? Of course they have the advantage to talk 24 hours per day...  V-man=Satoshi Nakamoto 2.0 (or is it again the 1.0 rembranded)

thanks for your quick replys toast   ;)

That means bitsharesX has a huge advantage over Counterparty and Mastercoin! (result oriented speaking :) )
The first word came to me thinking on bitsharesX is "freedom" instead of "slavery" for the other 2 :)

*sorry for the post
but I think it will help some newbies like me :)

"OP_RETURN was originally meant to store 80 bytes of extra data in a bitcoin transaction, but the core developers slashed it to 40 bytes"

Will this situation affect bitsharesX like Counterparty? If yes which is your plan? If not, sorry for posting this ;)

"OP_RETURN was originally meant to store 80 bytes of extra data in a bitcoin transaction, but the core developers slashed it to 40 bytes. This upset CounterParty, because as a financial trading platform that allows people to create new asset classes and financial derivatives to be traded on the bitcoin block chain, it says that it needed those 80 bytes to store its data."

are bitsharesX affected from this situation ???

bitcoin is a big experiment... why not PTS as well?  :)
