I don't think it's required but: I can confirm everyting Stan said above.

IMHO, we position ourselves very well in the websummit. So many people will think of BitShares and Cryptonomex when they hear about bitcoin and blockchain tech.
From what I experienced this year, the topic blockchain will grow big time until next year and we have an information head-start of at least one-year, and a technology head-start of at least 2 years!

Oh, btw .. did I tell you that there was sooo many startups searching for a
a) payment solution that is cheaper than stripe?
b) a blockchain that keeps consistent no matter what?
c) check out this: www.sec.gov/news/pressrelease/2015-249.html and try to figure out what payment solution fits that use-case best!?

Great work everyone!  Really exciting!

Wanted to thank Mark Lyford especially....you and your team have had a tough time of it lately.  Justified or not, it's good to hear about your efforts.  What more can you do than roll your sleeves up, keep going and try to do better?  Isn't that what we are all doing?  Actions speak louder than words anyway.

.. and that's just the what "we" know Mark (Banx) and Michael-X (remittio) are up to .. who knows what they have in mind already.
My experience from the last few days was, that they pretty much understand!! what the people in the "real" world need .. AND they know how the blockchain technology can solve their problems!
I've seen Michael market the whole idea to people I would a) never have imaged would need that tech and b) would never have dared to even try talk to them ..

We can be EXTREMELY happy to have those to on board!

I think we should get our "ducks in a row" for merchants, i.e. we need to have documentation and video tutorials to make it easy for merchants to adopt our product. Stripe is doing a good job at this. The bad about Stripe is that their fees are high, up there with normal institutions like Paypal, etc.

Does anyone have any material to present to merchants? I am willing to help put stuff together.

One way we can make Bitshares take off is by targeting merchants (a worldwide opportunity).

we want to know who you talked to, who showed interest  :P

We had strong interest from several big banks, several famous businesses, a shocking wild-card, and a bunch of start-ups interested in building on the ecosystem.  Got several sit-down sessions with VC's one of which lasted over two hours.  All of these contacts will require a long process of follow-up relationship building, but we are off to a great start.  Meanwhile, Michael, Mark and McKenna got selected as "one of the top ten most innovative start-ups" out of 600 putting their project and BitShares in the bright lights on the big stage. 

If even 1 of the many you mentioned joins, it's already worth it! I believe the banks are interested because of R3, ILP, etc. I would love them to join us as to compete with them but I don't have hopes to be honest. Wondering who is that shocking wild-card  :o would love to know more but I guess you cant/shouldnt disclose who you talked to, at least not soon.

One more question about something I was somewhat disappointed. Why are your beers full?  Other than that, good job :P
