I have decided that if people post these people to steemit along with a reason why, I will do bitshares interviews of those individuals and post them to the beyond bitcoin channels i have at my disposal.  it will people just how many amazing individuals work in this space.

Me too.

Last day everyone!  Please consider posting topics/projects you would like to cover.  At present there is only ONE bitshares project that has RSVP'd!??

From now on the top voted RSVPing projects will receive all the steemdollars from the RSVP thread.

Since BeyondBitcoin needs to fill at least 45 minutes of content, we are needing to begin reaching out to other communities to bring  so you have a short window of time before multiple other (potentially competing) projects come along for coverage and start building their own upvote lobbies to ensure they are covered.  I have intentionally given BitShares a headstart on this because of the history here, but we cannot do our job of making bitshares look alive if no projects want coverage!   

Don't let other communities show you up! Act now!  Post about your project!  RSVP to it and join us to promote it!

You know lil jay this initiative makes a heck of a lot more sense now that steemit exists..

I've only just casually used steem... how do you mean?

People upvoting team efforts to learn code together would pay the entire team as well as those who organize these sitdowns.

I don't like to single out people.. everyone has done their bit and everybody counts. Even tony, newmine :)... so much time spent here by everybody, contributing little or big.

Agreed 100%.  However, there are people who we all know who have stuck it out through the times that needed people who have not only participated, but acted to help bitshares become a stronger platform.  Those people are the ones I'm specifically looking for...because I don't have time to interview every single person individually in the community (and that is what hangouts are for ;))

So please people consider posting these individuals to the following thread: https://steemit.com/beyondbitcoin/@fuzzyvest/beyond-bitcoin-bitshares-allstar-awards--w-hangouts

I will be upvoting them so you will get some Steem-Backed Dollars (SBD) for simply posting!

What I dont like is our people here n on steem saying their ship went down that bitshares n steem is better...do we really need it? I really dont rhink so, this just make people that lost some money a lit more angry....if we could support the guys with bitshares expertise would be a much better aproach, if dan could advise them in some way would be good, they need to respect bitshares as a benchmark....not like dash monero haters gona hate

100% agreed.  But damn man...come on, that tank post is hilarious enough to almost be worth it.

Included in the grant is the cost of purchasing the tank, demilitarizing the tank, getting a permit from the ATF to import it, costs of importing, black market remilitarizing, and shipping to park across the street from the Bitshares office with a giant NuBits flag

I hope the steem guys learn something from this...
Is that comparison fair?

Afaik SteemUSD are always liquid and still pay you interest ..

It is fair to make the comparison in the same way it is fair to make the comparison to BitShares smartcoins. But I think the critical difference is that there are hard-coded safeguards in Steem to prevent users from making reckless decisions that lead to a dangerous debt-to-equity ratio. As far as I am aware, there is no limit to how many NuBits can be printed other than self-enforced community policy. In Steem, hard-coded features continually drive the debt-to-equity ratio towards a very conservative equilibrium value of approximately 2%. And conversions only work in one direction: the blockchain can convert SD to STEEM for you, but it will not convert STEEM to SD at a user's request.

So this comes with the disadvantage that there may potentially be a much smaller supply of SD than the demand for it. If this is still true despite dropping interest rates to 0%, then SD will have a large premium over the dollar. This is nothing new to the BitShares community. Even with the shorting-to-existence ability, BitUSD has experienced premiums over the USD as well. But with stronger limits to the supply of SD, I wonder how it will manifest in SD's ability to maintain the peg.

Anyway, that and the fact that it would force all token holders effectively into a short position, is why I am against using the Steem Dollar mechanism for BitShares smartcoins (at least as the primary mechanism for the peg, I think it is fine as a last resort insurance mechanism similar to what MakerDao is doing with the Dai, but again not via printing BTS but instead with some other token whose holders have chosen to take on that risk).

You need a bridge
This is key. Otherwise, whatevercoin can't get onto the chain, unless I'm missing something obvious (SmartCoin peg?). [member=602]fuzzy[/member] do you have a bridge in mind for this worker proposal?
Only one available at presen that we should consider imo. Blocktrades started here and could offer to be part of a "deal". Heck we could add metaexchange to the list as well if they were keeping the shop open.

Does Poloniex pay a reward to get coins on its platform? The opposite: altcoins pay for the privilege of being added to the exchange.

So, this worker seems backward to me, at first glance.

Try not to compare us to polo.  Their users would all be here already using our exchange if the comparison was fair...in which case we wouldn't need to bootstrap it.

Also look at DAO...they are giving out money to own large stakes in various crypto projects and help build them. If they keep doing that and eventually come out with their own exchange (which could come from graphene toolkit free of charge) most of these projects would trade there in a heartbeat.  They would gain a larger userbase in leaps and bounds....these are the reasons I see concern.  Unleess of course something is going on about which I am completely unaware...in which case id love to know about it.

If blocktarades and metaexchange are such big money makers, I'm stuck wondering why metaexchange is closing operations.

As for bitasset versions of peoples tokens, and why they would want it...they will prefer them over UIAs simply because the perception for most is that our exchanges UIAs like open.* are IOUs (which they are) but presented in a more honest way...that also just tends be terrible for A) usability B) perception

Lets ask a differenr questiin here to both of you.  Why do we not have anywhere near the options of most exchanges?  Sometimes we have to dish out funding to help get things started.  And if we make people pay initially for everything before we even have a respectible market presence, we are giving them just one more reason to go with (or build) a competitor.

What happens if in the coming months a comptetitor comes out with a cloned version of bitshares with a better ui and offers free listing of tokens over x marketcapmarketcap, for instance?

I think your argumebnts against assume we are living in a vaccuum where we have all the time in the world...I promise we dont

Would you vote on a worker proposal that pays monthly X amount, 90% (of X) to pay for various coins' to be added to BitShares?  10% goes to pay for my efforts and any tools to make them easier that I may need. 

So for example:
BitShares community offers deals on their own particular services that are connected to bitshares, then I go to Gridcoin, NXT, DAO and many others to bring them onto our exchange. I do a hangout with them.  Maybe blockcktrades adds their coin for a lower price...etc, but all service providers are paid from this worker.  I am paid for putting it all together in a package and handing it out in outreach efforts. 

As I see it, most of the money paid out would either go into the hands of obvious longs, or would go directly back into paying bitshares fees...so this would actually cost much less to do (and could bring large volume to bitshares).
