General Discussion / Re: What bitshares should learn from steem
« on: July 11, 2016, 05:08:56 am »
Bitshares had its prime time too. As I can recall, it passed ripple and became the no.2 highest market cap. To take a long story short, what happened then caused bitshares fell to the market cap of today. I couldn't tell if the same thing will happen to steem, but I strongly feel that we should keep going on the current route, and make bitshares more appealing in more practical use cases, and never look back.

This is actually historically inaccurate.  Bitshares never made it past ripple because when we were approaching it, Ripple's leadership decided to release all the locked up Ripple held by the foundation to become part of ripples marketcap...manipulating coinmarketcap in such a way as to make them skyrocket in value...

From that day on bitshares never got close to #3 again.  If it had passed ripple, I suspect it would have garnered quite a bit of attention and likely would have had many more eyeballs on it as it was and still is in most ways superior to Ripple.

This is the reason why you will see the term "pulling a ripple" on these forums from time to time. :)

I say this because if circumstances were different and the ripple defensive maneuver hadn't occurred, we would be in a completely different ballpark most likely.  This is a pretty important circumstance to consider.  I only hope you guys all really consider joining and using steem...I don't want people left behind when they can earn (and maybe put earnings back into bitshares??).

Come on everyone keep me so busy with covering bitshares people and their projects that I have to push back doing so with other communities for as long as possible!  I want people from other communities to see how many amazing people we have here!

Has someone always been helpful to you and isn't on the list?

Does someone keep you in bitshares without even knowing it...but they aren't on the list? 

Is someone part of a project that you KNOW other cryptocommunities should hear about... But they aren't on the list?

Then please consider giving them some credit on that thread!

i have never heard of such exchange i would not recommend anyone to try it

coingecko is actually a pretty good service.  it isn't an exchange but rather a competitor to coinmarketcap :)

It will be another powerful tool in our toolbox :)

I have a small list of requests for everyone...that I think you will all appreciate greatly.  This person is obviously a scholar, a teacher and financial guru....and he is introducing bitshares and steemit to his classes! if this catches on...it could be (you guessed it) HUGE!


1)  Please upvote the following post on steemit:
https://steemit.com/bitshares/[member=36696]cylonmaker2053[/member]/integrating-steemit-and-bitshares-into-an-investments-course-i-m-teaching#comments
2) Then please upvote my comment asking him to RSVP to our hangout 
3) Ask him to RSVP for our hangout so he can talk about his class and how he is including bitshares and steem in it.
4) Post the link to your request here and ask us all to upvote it!

Thanks everyone :D


Here is a quote from his post:
Quote
I’m teaching an Intro to Investments course at my university and plan on integrating both Steemit and Bitshares into the curriculum. The plan is to have each student create a Steemit account and base part of the participation grade on their interactions in the #finance, #economics, or #investing tagged posts. The goal is to get them actively thinking about current events and contributing to a thoughtful community discussion.

The plan with using Bitshares is to give each student about 10 USD worth of BTS, have them set up accounts on OpenLedger, and instigate a trading contest. I’ll have them run through some basic exercises, like borrowing smartcoins, playing market maker, and taking directional bets on whatever assets they find interesting.

General Discussion / Re: Comparison of BitShares VS Dash Transaction
« on: June 29, 2016, 03:42:00 am »
If BitShares had that exact function during BitShares 1.0, but had to kill the function due to scalability issues, why is Dash able to keep the same function without experiencing scalability issues? What makes them different from BitShares? Are they just not seeing the scalability issue ahead, or did they overcome it somehow?
In essence it breaks down to this:
https://bitshares.org/blog/2015/06/08/lessons-learned-from-bitshares-0.x/#assign-ids-rather-than-using-uuids

Dash hasn't through about this because they are based on addresses while BitShares is based on ids. That allows a totally different level of scalability.

is this because of the size of the address compared to an ID?  what makes ID's more scalable precisely?

this is probably an issue with the objectIDs...maybe infamous would be willing to give his advice.
