Will Bitsahres 2.0 be live on the 13.Oktober or will the snapshot be taken then? If the snapshot is taken then will it be +14 days for 2.0 to be live?

No, because its an upgrade to a live chain, not a new chain, the chain state must be seamless from last old block to first new block.   There may be a few hours switchover pause, but we can't (and don't need to) let it remain down for very long.
Ok. So 2.0 will live live at Okt. 13th?

Totally, completely, profoundly, miraculously live live.

Now that was a definite answer :)

Been away.....what a thing to come back to!! I was honestly ready and happy for next April. Thank you and well done on what must have been a monumental effort. I can hear the distinct hum of an immensely powerful, drawn bow.  When this arrow flies, it goes straight and true all the way to its mark.

Bitshares alone offers nothing. We should never forget that it is the commitment of the community, the trust and belief of our partners and the alliance between integrity and usefulness that makes BItshares a possibility.

Whatever the future challenges, they can and will be overcome.

Let's bring everyone in.  Let's go viral!

Depends upon your internet connection.    There is almost no disk access and everything is in memory so it is blazing fast.   There have been several million transactions on the test network and the test network has simulated 11 years of maintenance intervals at this point and can still be reindexed in under 5 minutes.      I would guess that once the real BTS chain is out processing less than 1 transaction per second on average (based upon current rates) that your old PC will take no more than 10 minutes to sync for a very long time.

Once it sinks it that BTS 2.0 really can do 100,000 TPS I wonder if competitors will start complaining that BTS 2.0 is too fast?

There are still people who believe BTS is centralized and that "nothing is at stake".
