I'am also impressed with Dan's achievement.

He is sharedropping the new coins to themselves and dumping the old coins on the new suckers. I invested in BTS development trough AGS so I can tell you from my own experience. First it was the Protoshares holders, then the Angelshare holders, then the Bitshares holders and now the Brownie holders. Who know what is next? IDentabit holders.

Can you imagine yourself in their position? Best of all they have two type of AGS holder.

Are you sure there are your only option? Have you thought about alternatives?

Good luck with your project.

So let me see if I understand your point.

As an AGS holder who donated after the BTS snapshot on 2/28/2014 you were not expecting any free BTS, but you got them anyway via the merger and are now getting a nice fat sharedrop through them.

(Further, you got AGS much cheaper after 2/28/2014 than those who donated before that date, so relative to your donation, you are actually getting many more AGS than pre 2/28 donors.)

You are now lobbying that you should get another 10%, so that you get double-dip credit for both your original AGS and the free BTS you got when AGS was merged into BTS.

And you want your extra 10% to be taken away from those who have been donating their time and energy to the project to help build the ecosystem for you and everybody else.

Does that about sum it up?

Good afternoon John, this is ken in Munich. I listened to your entire mumble with fuzzy and the crew and was very impressed. Very philosophical actually, it was engaging all the way through.
 
I'll get right to it.
We would be absolutely honored to have you join our Philosophy Panel at the upcoming BitShares Munich Expo and help you guys promote IDentabit with BitShares:

I'm loving the entire evolution.  Watching it all break into a spectrum of chains that carry different types of weight and meet varying demands.

Never hurts to ask. John, have you by any chance attended Brookings Blum Roundtable? Just thought of asking since I saw this on reddit https://medium.com/@Cryptonight/presenting-bitcoin-remittances-at-the-brookings-blum-roundtable-2015-9b13b46cf336

Great to see you back on the forum, John!  8)  I'm very much looking forward to the big reveal (especially since I have expiring shorts that're draining me)  :P

John,  can you tell more about the project?  thanks.

Thx alt

Based on conversations with Team Larimer I expect we will pre-announce the project to the community next week or the week after.

We are ready to announce just paying respect to other planned announcements.

can't wait to see

Wow! Great news! Glad to see you back John. I can only imagine the regulatory dots that needed connecting in order to make your project work successfully. Good seeing you have conviction and tenacity to see this project thru. It's a beast of a task! Hope to hear some great news in the near future [emoji1]

A pioneering technology will have dozens of these things. People drift in and drift out, talk about big plans, and maybe these happen or maybe they don't. For every ten of these you hear about, you're lucky if a couple of them follow through and stick. The rest won't and this is quite typical. ALso, in defense of potential partners, this has been a pretty long haul in terms of waiting for the basic technology to be created to a point where anyone could plug into it. We may see a few of these partners resurface when there's something they can actually use.

So right, in our case we never left, we just had to step back and rework our beliefs and challenge what could be done and then commence working through the issues as to how and what...so many projects have been started based on 70% hope, 20% substance and 10% digilgence.

We believe in the tech and as big project guys we believe in Dan's unique capacity to deliver.

When you look at the cock-up at Ethereum where unguided inexperienced brilliance, creates nothing but hope and disappointment, Dan's achievement are nothing but really impressive.
