Hey Mark, welcome to the BTS platform. Would you be able to make a post in General Discussion briefly explaining what BanxShares is?

is this why BTS price  is tanking ?.... :o

No, the price dropped last night (before this announcement), because the btc38 whale who buys or sells BTS and Doge together went and sold both BTS and Doge.  (You can see the strong similarity between the doge and bts charts over the past two months, they have big moves up or down on the same days).

Welcome Banx! 

This is great news.  I guess this is the 'major altcoin' that it was mentioned would be joining Bitshares soon.


It looks like this gives Banx better TPS and block speed, and better security trading on a decentralized exchange, and gives Bitshares more users and generates some user fees that can be used to help offset dilution.

banx is a ponzi scheme. the 'banx share' token use to be on blockchain. It was great when it was only traded on the Banx Capital central exchange, because they manipulated the trading, and made it seem like it only goes up in value. But since its an altcoin on a blockchain, another exchange finally hosted it, and the prices diverged. So banx shares was then migrated off the blockchain to Banx Capitals private accounting book. Now no one is allowed to sell the banx shares they own, only to buy from on the central exchange. In the period it went to 10 million market cap. wow!

Why do people want to buy 'banx shares' which they cannot sell? It pays dividends, if you get on a mailing list. and Banx Capital claim banx share owners are part of an IPO, and that eventually you can sell your banx shares.

There is no actual profit in the company. dividends, to those who are paid, is paid from funds of share purchasers. And a PR operation is funded as well.

Banx Capital says they are going to use bitshares technology... to convince people to buy more banx shares lol. that's all. they have no real business.

Yes a few months ago they finally set up a working crypto currency exchange. it has no volume I don't think? Banx Capital has no expertise and just enough skill to con people over on bitsharestalk.org

Yes, but I don't think that many others are aware.

The more brothers and sisters that take up residence on the BitShares blockchain, the stronger and more secure your business becomes overall.

You sir are savy enough to know a great deal when you see it.  The initial install cost (to be allowed on-board the BitShares blockchain) will only increase over time, as supply of open business slots decreases and voting shareholders become more critical of what business are awarded the honor.
Why would the shareholders want to stifle innovation and stop new fee-paying businesses from joining?
Sounds a bit too centralbanky for my liking.

The effect would be exactly the same as if existing bts businesses grew by an amount equal to the value of this new business.

Wouldn't the profit seeking shareholders do better to invest some of their hefty profits in R&D to increase the maximum capacity of the blockchain?
If the shareholders were to even entertain the idea of preventing new businesses joining the blockchain, then it must be almost at max capacity of 100k transactions.
At an average of $0.05 per transaction in fees, that would be $5000 in fees paid every second.
That's $157B a year in fees.
I'm sure with that kind of capital the transaction limit and blockchain capacity could be increased and witnesses compensated for whatever expense necessary to continue to increase the volume of transactions possible.

There's no such thing as blockchain bloat!
If a fee was paid, a fair transaction has occurred. Remember that the fees are set by the shareholders. If the fee is too low to cover the cost of storage in the blockchain, then its up to shareholders and delegates to raise it.
BitShares is about freedom and arbitrary limits are counter to that.

Welcome Mark!
Thanks for being the guinea pig case study that shows everybody else what's possible with BitShares!

We've got CCEDK showcasing BitShares the orderbook and Banx Capital showcasing BitShares the asset manager.
Who's next?? (Proud of that pun ;) )
