I'm skeptical of this. I also dont want other chains to get for free what BTS
shareholders paid for. They can get them, as long as they pay too.

Couldn't we create some kind of consensus where if a chain wants certain
feature, has to pay something like 25% of it's original price by buying that
amount of BTS at the time and burning it or something?

and like it was mantioned, what keeps other projects from taking all we've paid
for and do it on a sidechain or whatever? a popular enough project like
ethereum and it's btc version could pull that off while leaving BTS in the dust
right? Even if their chains are not as optimized as ours, they still win the
popularity contest

Isn't that what the social consensus is doing for us? If a chain wants to have
our "support" and user base, they need to sharedrop their shares onto BTS
holders?

It all comes down to USER BASE! That's why whatsapp is worth $20B and we should
work as hard as possible to have the user base grow in our own chain.

Exactly, Ethereum and Bitcoin don't need our userbase. Some platform done on top of those has no need for us. We're only a burden. This, if it even makes sense for them to take out features, that were done with graphene. I dont know up to what point it would make sense to take them into a ethereum and bitcoin chain since chains have different proprieties, but still, if they are able to do it, there will be no social consensus because our userbase is only a burden for them.

But I agree with you that we should make our userbase grow as much as possible as to change the outcome in case that situation happens.

Muse like chains do not need our userbase or expertise. They hire cnx, get users on peertracks, bitusd muse will get better liquidy .....

Yes .. but only because there is ONE startup running on top of MUSE ..
Imagine only one business in the banking, exchange and financing business to join the BitShares network!

This is great news and certainly a step in the right direction both from an ideological and business perspective.

One thing to keep in mind about "people using what we paid for": How much have we paid for the c++ compilers, the BOOST licenses, the SSL libraries, etc. etc. etc. that is the core of BTS?

The space needs more building blocks.

Yes.. innovation of today is happening on layers from yesterday. If we ever hope to become one of those layers we need to be open about it.

BTS and Eth should not be compared since they have very different features. However if BTS could have a blockchain code runner (execution environment) like Eth it would definitely make BTS the best overall platform.

Actually I am kind of a fan of a step less than that [It very well be my conservative thinking; or inability to see things as liberal as most here]

But free to everything BTS related should have been enough. I really do not want other chains (MUSE, PLAY, player X) getting the stuff that BTS holders paid for, for free.

If you want it - make yourself a DAPP on BTS, or pay to CNX or whoever developed that particular feature. The idea it to generally prevent even the thought of milk-cowing BTS, passing anybody's mind.


Anyway, definitely better than the current state, in my view.

 +5%

Yes, well done.. definitely better.. BUT, while BTS is still trying to figure out it's business model, maybe we should be a little more conservative. I'm concerned about fragmentation of the network effect, and to some extent leeching, as tonyk mentioned.

Just revive the Social Consensus. Why am I the only poster who brings that up anymore? Look back over the last six months on this forum and I'll bet the last six posts on the Social Consensus have all been mine. Between licensing and stealing something for free lies the community's expectation that anyone using this technology will sharedrop a small percentage. If they don't, we blackball them rather than inviting them to Beyond Bitcoin. If they do honor the Social Consensus, then they have the full weight of this community behind their product. I think it's a great notion and I believe we should expect that of everyone using this technology (the development of which this community has supported technologically, financially, and morally).

 +5% Makes sense.

this is what ive alwayd thought too...the community (we) should build many things that nee chains will want to be part of because they know it would be extremely valuable to get added to our infrastructure either A) extremely cheaply or B) free...as long as social consensus is met.

as for blackballing them...we dont need to even worry about that. All we need to do is ignore the ones that dont.
