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

At one point I was a bit too tied up into Bitshares wanting it to win and probably misperceived your intentions, Charles. If I personally had much to do with your aggravation or such, my apologies. I myself have been working on being a more positive person because as you said ... life is too short and stuff.

I wish you the best in your endeavors.

I could have been more graceful as well. There is too much passion in this space and things are always moving too quickly. We tend to forget that there are human beings behind the ideas and keyboards and let the competition get the best of us. Winning ought not be constrained to a project, but rather always the ideas. The whole point is that we are changing paradigms about how money, society and governments should work. Value can now move at the speed of thought, contracts are now digital and self-enforcing and the idea of no one being in charge actually is tangible. It's going to change things and we either all fail together or succeed together regardless of the particular company or project.

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. 


Welcome back! I'm so happy to hear these words....

This technology is about saving us from the worst we can be and encouraging the best we can be. It's about the end to the war machine, the end to slavery.  Trying to use this technology without compromise in order to stall or eliminate corruption over time is an act of love for humanity, for your family, for your friends, for all our futures.

Yes very interesting reading, good points about the difficulty of eDollar scaling in ethereum. I assume Augur will have the same issues, and that will be very easy to implement in Bitshares. Bytemaster explained how to implement this in Bitshares with assets, https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,14010.0.html but it will need a good UI.

Way too short. Hmm.. Maybe we should focus on radical life extension instead of crypto.

Int the best plan to make money off crypto in order to then be able to focus on radical life extension? :)

Like Larry Page using his Google on project Calico :D
