Hi Ronny , this is not about ether or bitshares really and its not about a particular currency either. There is a growing trend around the world among communities to develop alternative means to accomplish exchange between members of society. In that respect right know the most prevailing idea is that exchange should start by giving, that is not the same as giving a token or digits. Doing something for a member of society and recording that so you will receive something back when you need. Scarcity is not a viable option in their system because scarcity takes individuals hostage. In this system the moment someone does something for someone his account status becames - minus until he recieves from another member of society. This model naturally creates islands of community currency systems . Like WIR, BrixtonPound  or timebanks.

I actually I was giving. Stasrting out with sharebits, and moving onto other  targets and means to share with the potential of a win but as long as no win it is a loss and therefore a share

It isn't?  The platform they openly say they represent is ethereum.  No problems there, but if we want to get to where ethereum is, we should probably consider the tools we have to do these amazing things here and start working together to help them out (especially if they sharedrop on you and the other project doesn't.)

why not just have Ethereum users go to Openledger to pick up OPEN.ETH,

then share it on twitter, facebook, reddit, slack or any o their own forums onces enabled,

bottom line is that with the present asset OPEN.ETH,

all ethereum users can share their wealth within 3 seconds, thats all it takes to tweet a url with a link to pick up ET on OpenLedger.

ofcourse only possible with www.sharebits.io

Do you have a video on how to do that Ronnie?
If so, I would like to share that in their community

Thanks
Michael

Can someone summarize what's it? I got nothing from the first page of the wiki as well as the website.

Thanks.

This will my friends,  be the silver bullet of all time ! Have a look at it. Once it has patfinding,  atomic hops and then bye bye to fiat!

Honestly confused how this is any different from what we (can) offer. 

BeyondBitcoin tokens are a community currency.  If we get the sharebot plugged into forums easily using an api we can literally have give ANY forum community the ability to create and distribute their own "Community Currency".  I've read through it and this is no different...

So I guess what I'm saying is...lets make it possible here?

Imagine just for one second...if every forum out there could create their own tokens and pass them out to people in their community's while enabling community members to pay a little bit (or have above a certain reputation) to be able to pass theirs as well..

This is going to be a very big hit in my opinion. Would it be possible on BitShares ?
I don't see any reason why it wouldn't .. they just already picked ethereum

what we are looking into with the sharebot is a way to give different forum communities a way to pass their own community and even personal tokens on popular forums software.

this would be very similar. kind of like "guild" currencies.

imagine for instance, every community that has a gorum decides it also wants to enable their users to very quickly pass tokens to one-another.  then imagine if communities can actually charge people to "unlock" the use of their coin on those forums...and you now have given all forum communities a means of bartering without paypal, with faster transactions, customized tokens and means of gaining reputation across forum communities. 

that isnt even talking about social network and blog integration...
