“We’ve talked to everyone from Coinbase to Bitstamp to BitPay, half a dozen others, and they all want to integrate with us, it’s just a schedule priority issue,” Larimer said.

Wow holy shit, this is going to bite us in the ass so bad. Dan ALWAYS embellishes on stuff like this, he probably couldn't tell between a polite blowoff and actual interest

It's customary not to speak of the potential deals made with your partners without their direct approval .
"They all want to integrate with us" implies a solid deal , which falls into the rule stated above .
Even if that's true , it's wrong to do that without their approval .

Larimer said that the BTSX shares operate in a different way to Ripple’s native tokens, XRP, comparing them to IOUs or promises that Ripple or its competitors will deliver the value when a redemption is requested.
This is also not true. XRP is a token like BTS (risks for each is network security). What is different are gateways IOUs on Ripple and Bitassets!

Formerly operated by Invictus Innovations, the BitShares exchange is a product of BitShares X, a decentralised autonomous company (DAC) that specializes in the creation of BitAssets like BitUSD and BitCNY that are pegged to the BitShares blockchain.
Almost everything is wrong in this sentence. I3 never operated Bitshares or BitsharesX. " BitShares exchange is a product of BitShares X" is wrong for obv. reasons. "(DAC) that specializes in the creation of BitAssets" sounds like BitAssets were created / issued by the company itself. "pegged to the BitShares blockchain" is wrong for obv. reasons.

Should we contact the author?

I took "schedule priority issue" to be a nice way of putting "profit-incentive issue"

I take Dan's comments at face value but it would be nice to have one or two of these in the bag already - or at least concrete news.

“We’ve talked to everyone from Coinbase to Bitstamp to BitPay, half a dozen others, and they all want to integrate with us, it’s just a schedule priority issue,” Larimer said.

“I suspect that by the end of 2015, there’s going to be three major players, bitcoin, Ripple and us, as far as blockchain technologies,” he said.
"There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose"

Heh.  Yeah, we really shouldn't expect any big things on those fronts in the near future.

Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

Plot twist: crypto mainstream site bitshares article makes many bitshares holders realize they have no idea how it works.  So they dump. :P
