@ccedk, whatever you bribed that Forbes guy with was worth every penny.

Oh, I can assure you that we DO see BitShares as a solution to Bitcoin's scaling problems. And its 1-hour confirmation times problems. And its governance problems. That's for starters. Amid the current controversies there, we have certainly used this as an opportunity to promote our solutions.

Two questions for you: First, if you don't see BitShares as part of the solution, then why do you bother posting here? Second, if you think BitShares and Etherum and other crypto-projects each offer something from which others can learn, perhaps puzzle pieces that fit together make up something greater, then why the hell don't you mention this in any of your writings?

If you want to bust bubble thinking, then how about helping your readers connect the dots just a bit?

@fav , please move this to Random Discussion. BitShares is not mentioned substantively in the article. The post has no relevance on this board.

It is relevant because governance is one of the core VP of bitshares and that's the core of the Bitcoin crisis. I'm truly sorry that you are incapable of abstract thinking.

If that's true, then why didn't you say so in the article? Why not mention some better experimental examples of governance structure such as this one? It is ALL about Bitcoin. Of course, we are all following the governance issues there with great interest. I get the indirect context. But if your article is relevant enough to post here, then we might as well stream the whole Reddit sub into the BitShares forum.

The only mention of BitShares and Ethereum is that one of Bitcoin's accomplishments has been to inspire other uses of the blockchain (such as...).

I'll tell you why you mentioned both of those in passing. Barely even in passing. You mentioned them so that you could post on the Ethereum and BitShares forums and crow about your article.

Well, it's a very thoughtful, well-researched, and reasoned analysis...of Bitcoin's issue, not ours. @fav , It belongs in Random Discussion. Or maybe Mr. Hoskinson should have his own child board for posting his enlightened thoughts on all things great and small?

We're holding up pretty well today, amidst the carnage around us.

You are quite right. BitShares depends on Bitcoin for anyone to get in or out. Stealth, Mutual Aid, all of the rest of those projects should be much lower priorities than getting on and off ramps using major currencies.

Wow, it is good that muse is holding its 1mio USD cap.

That means it might be considered a good pick for other exchanges.

One million is good? Wake me up when MUSE hits $10M. Someone named Bono is already a major holder. Steve Bono, the retired quarterback? The ghost of Sonny Bono? Oh, no. There can be only one.

I think when the news come out is the time the whale almost totally move out.

Unless clayop is the whale. He'll probably buy more.

Logical fallacy much?

I haven't understood a word of your posts, so no, I don't much logical fallacy. Do you? I see your much and raise you more. My posts were much more directed at that other moron who says written laws should be eliminated. If so, there isn't much you can do to prevent accidents on the ice. Or ISIS babes from causing orgasms. Much is more. Yoda not far.

What about a woman getting f****ed while she chants "ISIS is good, ISIS is great"? If you're the 82-year-old who overhears this, do you call it in or wait for the fireworks to blow? If we didn't have laws, we'd have to wait for "consequences". Or do we stop them before they breed?

Thou Shalt Not Drive a Zamboni While Drunk. Even if you do not mow over small children on the ice, you will create ruts and rough spots that make skating dangerously unpleasant.

Would you arrest the bastard? Or would you wait for "consequences" first? Drunk Zamboni driving is always fun until someone loses an eye...or some kid loses a leg. Unfortunately, there's no legal recourse if we have eliminated our written laws. We have no incentive to reduce risks anymore as a society. So just let daddy due the Zamboni operator, the Zamboni company and its subcontractors, the ice skating rink, the insurance companies, the skate maker, the water company...yeah, and that will save society a ton of money, won't it? Fucking amateur hour.

do you vote? if you vote you support psychopathic authoritarians and they always hurt people. voting for rulers is taking risk with other people's lives and is undesirable for society. ;)

That's retarded. Are you that much of a simpleton that you think voting is doing more to support the government than anything else you do? Bullshit. If you really want to hurt their legitimacy, then don't spend money in stores and you'll see how quickly the whole thing unravels.

If you don't vote, then don't complain. Do you eat? If so, then you are supporting psychopathic authoritarians who control the food supply, give multibillion agricultural subsidy handouts to big agribusinesses, spray pesticides on everything, enslave poor farmers around the world by forcing them to buy high priced genetically modified seeds that they cannot re-plant, and much worse. Do you write forum posts on your computer? Then thank your government for protecting your right to speak your mind by spending billions on national defense against people who would rather control every aspect of your life. Do you drive? Use electricity? Breathe air? Anyone could make that same argument about engaging in any behavior in the public or private sector. Voting is child's play compared to the money. 

General Discussion / Re: Graphene GUI testing and feedback
« on: December 18, 2015, 12:03:32 am »
You guys working on the GUI have been doing a great job. But with all due respect, I am very unhappy with this new change of having the one's accounts in a list and then showing their value in BTS. The numbers are not even close to reality. I have an account or two with some dust and shitcoin UIAs in them and it shows that I have 419,000,000 BTS. I have given up trying to find out how much I have in actual BTS, which I cannot see anymore. Suggestion: Roll back to how this looked a few days ago. I can see the utility in having the collateral appear also, but a few days ago it was much better looking and easier to understand and use.

General Discussion / Re: Should Bitshares get into the XXX industry?
« on: December 17, 2015, 04:58:29 am »
It's not dying a slow death.

I highly doubt the sex industry will ever die.

You are both right. First, porn will never go away and someone will continue to make billions. But second, why the hell does anyone pay for smut anymore? Unless a guy is into specialized fetish stuff, you can get what you need for free these days. One would think that some dudes have figured that out, which is why the overall business has been declining. But it probably could continue declining for the next century and still be a very profitable sector.
