No new users allowed = stagnant marketcap
« on: October 15, 2015, 11:57:26 am »
Are we eventually going to allow new users to sign up for new accounts? It seems the only way to get an account at this point is to:

A)already have and import a registered account from 0.9.3
or
B) buy a transferable account from a lifetime member / account spammer

I have tried to bring in several new users but they have all reported that they are unable to make a new account from both the web-wallet and the lite-wallet.
Furthermore, as a non-lifetime member I cannot create an account for them.  I don't care about fees, but it would be nice to be able to use the full functionality of the software without paying $100 for what is turning into the "full version" of bitshares. 

IMO this referral system has broken the ability of bitshares to grow.  If new users cannot enter the system AND new-ish (non-lifetime) users cannot bring in users,  the only way to join the club is to know someone already deep in it.  If this is the case, than the only way for bitshares to grow slightly is for its current users to funnel more capital into it.


EDIT: I have been able to convince some of these people to retry making account given the info in this thread.  I still think it's stupid to not allow free users to register new accounts (without the fee bonus of course) but redact some of my original criticism.

It has never been easier to create an account.

I just went to bitshares.openledger.info and created a new account by selecting a name and entering a password twice.

It doesn't get any easier than that!

I go to bitshares.openledger.info
type in a user name
and get this:

Due to bug, bitshares.openledger.info not accept account name with dot (.) try without dot or wait until this bug will be fixed.

Ah thanks, I will spread the word to others. I assume since the light wallet points to openledger thats why it does not work there as well?
