that's all nice and stuff, but why waste money? Sign-Up doesn't work.

Funneling musicians that are interested in early access isn't a waste of money imo. I confirmed with @cob that the form was OK for artists to submit their information. The UX could be a bit more polished on it, for example a thanks page / msg. after submission would be a good way to notify the artist that their submission will be seen. Also not sure if contact fields are being validated... at the very least band info and an email address should be required. Also the message could include an indication that they will get a followup e-mail closer to the launch.

Any update on the status of this form @bitsapphire?

I still don't get this part of the website.


How will streaming be profitable if it's free and without adds?

That said I think it's cool what you are doing. I still just wish there was more of a product to present to people and something a little less confusing then what it is now.

Thanks for the support.

Sounds too good to be true right?  8) I know there does in fact exist a revenue model, but the specifics aren't public as that is to be kept under wraps until the time is right (via the NDA). I am not under NDA so I personally do not know what said model is or how it works.

That's when you really know you are onto something innovative... when it challenges one's intuition because the concept is so far out of the box!

Detroit is a nexus for independent and innovative musicians of all styles, speeds, and persuasions. Because of this, I aim to funnel this diversity of local artists into the PeerTracks system via word of mouth and ads, to help increase the collection of artists on board when the project goes live. This week the city is alive with music due to the Movement Festival, which attracts over 100,000 people each memorial weekend to the city.

Brainstorming with @mikek3, who did the design work, and obtaining feedback from @cob, we came up with the following double sided 4x6 based on the branding and copy from the site. If you are so compelled, feel free to use the design for your own local initiatives!

I've got 5000 of these on rush order so I can hit the ground hard this weekend. DJ @thread is playing the show and has access to the artist lounge, which we fully intend to infiltrate with these cards.

Cost to Print:                 $150
Next day completion:    $100
Sales tax:                      $15   
Total costs:                    $265

@cob subsidized my efforts by pitching in $100 bitUSD. Donations to help cover the cost of materials are appreciated, and I am willing to send out left over cards (after I scatter them all over Detroit venues and cafes) to community members that want a stack of them.

Great read on CIN (Corruptor-injector networks) attacks. How can we mitigate these types of compromise on our hot wallet machines? If a cryptocurrency does threaten the status quo, we can assume damn well that they will be using these types of attacks to erode the trust in the system (maybe by keylogging and stealing funds for example).

Hey @merivercap. I have an unused meetup slot on with the Bay Area's name on it. I can create it and add you as the organizer, just give me the word.

The videos are also available on our web site :

You'll find there a small forum for the french community,  english articles translated in french, our own articles, a newbie section to start undertsanding BitShares and a free translation of "101 BitShares".

Soon we'll have how-to videos for installing the client, create and register an account on the blockchain and many more.

It's also a great place to start !

Sharing our link with persons and sites will help to create a strong french community.
It's time to bring the french community in ! Let's do this !!!!

Hey Estefan!

Here's an info-graphic recently released by

All About BitShares v0.9 Infographic

If you have anyone on your team that would like to translate it into French to help your site then cool.  8)

Is it just me, or does it seem like a lot of forum members have had a particularly sandy crotch the past few days?

Everybody love everybody.   :-*

Link doesn't work for me.

Try this one

eSports is a huge market so maybe this will attract some talent that can learn about crypto from winning some.

He says that mining is a necessary risk, but mining simply rewards block validators that waste energy. Is his argument that the mining market "entices" new users to join? That holds true at first, but eventually fades away as it becomes unprofitable at a non-commercial scale. The benefits and services the network provides in and of themselves should be the source of that user adoption. I don't understand the argument against more efficient block validators... those efficiency gains can be felt by all users of the network, making it more "enticing" to use. Also isn't the risk in buying and holding the volatile crypto-asset itself?

Also the comparison to reinventing physical goods doesn't hold up in the digital realm, where recombinant innovation is cheaper and easier. You can do the blockchain without Bitcoin because the foundational concepts are open and free for anyone to learn about, clone, modify, and use.

I like using protonmail. Another good encrypted email service is tutanota, which is open source and has a mobile app.

Make sure you link them to, maybe, there's nothing for them to use yet so it's kind of a hard sell unless you have the opportunity to explain.

Judging by the price, we expect good news. Common guy. You are our last hope. BitShares slowly becoming synonym for share of shit.

I'll gladly buy your  cheap bitshares. If only I had more cash flow...  8)

John from Bitcoins and Gravy is looking for someone with trading expertise to interview and asked me if I knew anyone. I figured this would be a good place to start.
