Maybe approach them when 2.0 is ready so they upgrade. Let them capitalize on it.

So how big is the Chinese community for BitShares these days?

Pretty small. BitShares used to have the largest active Chinese community in crypto, besides BTC itself before the merger imo.

There was a very exciting project, DACX, which used BitShares on the back-end and was featured on Chinese international TV a few months back. I haven't followed up on their progress or if they're still using BitShares.

Next tell me the primary media outlet to propagate it.

Max Keiser's show would probably be the best. He has a large worldwide audience & explains crypto-concepts well to a savvy audience who are disenchanted with and looking for alternatives to the current financial system.

I figured I'd try to bury the hatchet. Life's too short for this stuff.

There is a certain irony in the fact that Bitcoin, the pioneer of decentralized currency, is at risk because of centralized development. In the true spirit of consensus all the camps should implement their solutions and let the miners pick the winner.

If they can merely respect that other products have niches, then maybe they'll try it and like it:

No doubt when this is the mentality of the bitcoin maximalists https://twitter.com/adam3us/status/633280928991735808

We have a lot of work to do to ensure these turkeys don't run the show.
flawed economic models with arrogance mixed in... (referring to Back, Sidechanges etc.)

For what it's worth, I think the altcoin space is where the best minds and innovation are at today.

I am becoming more and more convinced that BTC will be replaced by a 2.0, or rather, probably by like 5-10 different 2.0s with different goals.  Ripple, ETH, and BTS are probably among them.  I do think BTC will stick around as the primary store of value coin, at least if they can get a decent resolution on block size issues. 


I cant wait for BTS 2.0 to get out there and establish itself.  We need to be generating the level of interest that ETH is currently!

One boon has been the emergence of  smart contracts and oracles. Ethereum and Augur are really pushing the market towards thinking about these things and that gives developers a better suite of tools to experiment.

Smart contracts are a useful device, especially for prototyping, but IMO anonymity and trust are a very bad combination.

For what it's worth, I think the altcoin space is where the best minds and innovation are at today. The bitcoin maximalists and silicon valley types are running around either chained to bitcoin without any context or reason (I guess it's the standard) or are rapidly building business models centralizing or federating technology. They just don't seem to get it.
