Thank you to those with positive feedback on my post, greatly appreciated and I think we are all feeling a bit disenchanted with how things have progressed over the past three months.

I am going to give credit where it's due though - CNX did a substantial amount of work for BTS on their own dime. Now we can speculate till the cows come home about who benefited from their sweat equity, but I'm also going to ask that we stop beating up on each other until we know where we stand with Dan. It's wasted time and effort all around.

In the interim I'm going to try and coat tail BTS on Steemit's market cap and need everyone's help to do it. Please see my proposal here:

https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,22864.msg296565.html#msg296565

Basically I hope will be enough capital via blogging to bump BTS cap and increase DEX liquidity to get Bitshares over the hump. First post is up and I'm asking everyone here to head over to the dark side an upvote/comment:



link to steemit doesnt work btw

does anyone understand how steem dollars work?  just the other day it was worth 2.5X of 1 dollar value in btc on Polo, I thought perhaps it was just polo speculators but then the volume exceeded 1000+ btc in 24 hours... so thought it would function like bitUSD... kind of strange.

Yes, my forum user name and Steemit account name are not playing nice.

I have been watching Polo too and have no idea what is going on. Steem Dollars are bitUSD with interest, so maybe it's just a complete hot mess to take a position?

i didn't think they were the same bitUSD that is on the Bitshares network.  i think they are sort of a copy of bitUSD using Steem as collateral (I guess).

They do pay interest as you point out. 

In any case the volume is pretty high.

it's crazy though how crypto money just flows to the next cool project as soon as one turns out to be a bit of a turd (the DAO hack).  someone mentioned to me Steem a couple months back, and we saw it used for articles for some bounties we have for a project.  The day i started actually researching it it popped 150% lol. 

Still no one has answered me about the licensing?

Wasn't the contract that all future chains using the BTS code had to give back 10%?  Or was that not formally enshrined in the "open source" license? 

As a bts holder of course i'm disappointed that the team couldn't stay together and capitalize, however as someone that works on projects, I was always greedy about getting my hands on that graphene tech ;)

someone needs to make an instastreem... integrate with siacoin and storj so people can get paid for posting photos and silly videos.... i've got loads of girls here in ibiza with 15k+ followers and they don't get paid squat :)

btw anyone know the answer to how to withdraw SBD from polo so i can buy some on the decentralized market?  i'm trying to see how the arbitrage is working, but i haven't used bitshares in ages and i dont know how the address/memo stuff works

https://steemit.com/steemit/@decrypt/how-do-i-send-steem-or-sbd-from-poloniex-to-steemit

i'm getting 2 conflicting accounts from commentators, if there is some BTS dev that actually knows for sure, it would be create before I accidentally throw away another $10...

or is there a separate forum for steem that i can get support?

You don't need memo to withdraw SBD to Steemit. Just your username. When you are transferring funds to Poloniex then you need memo but it is easy to find under deposit instructions.

Thank you.

I'm delighted with the support. I was just surprised. Thank you very much [member=6]Stan[/member] [member=120]xeroc[/member] . You're not a little Steemians, and yet with 40 votes I got  $5. This means that creating a local (Croatian) community on Steem would be very difficult if not impossible.

I highly recommend everyone look into Steem.  It has a lot of promise and is worth your time.

The sharedrop was promised by Invictus company .

And STEEM is run by STEEM company .

So . it's ok not to drop on it .

I have to say this is a very strange response from someone who's been around as long as you have. Steem/Steemit/Steemit Inc. is running on code and talent developed for Bitshares. Dan's pitch, and the reason so many invested in PTS/AGS, was that the code base could be used to bootstrap an entire ecosystem of blockchain based projects. Investors would fund development of the initial code base and in return would receive a share in future projects.

The world is a harsh place and I would expect some to profit by abusing the 'social contract' upon which investment in PTS/AGS was premised via any number of schemes (ie. we changed the name on the sign and are no longer on the hook) but to be completely honest the lead dev is the last person I would have expected to do this sort of thing.

Those of us that invested in Dan's vision in the early days did so because his vision was sheer genius - design a generic platform which could be used by others to build an entire economy of block chain based businesses. By funding the creation of the generic platform investors could share in the success of the businesses that were built on top of it.

Steem/Steemit/Steemit Inc. seems to be the first profitable (?) realization of Dan's vision and hot damn, it's hard to believe the Bitshares folks are being left to hang.

Yes, BTS seems to be seeing some buying of late. Yes, the 'select few' that followed Dan are enjoying an influx of capital. All good things. But the social contract that was supposed to transcend the legal/political/corporate fuckery that defines the current state of the world seems to have been shat upon.

Say it ain't so! I've held my investment through brief highs and long, long lows because I believe Bitshares has real potential to level the playing field, globally. Hopefully Dan is having his Skywalker moment of doubt and is dabbling in the dark side.

It ain't so. Do some research. There are innumerable people still working on BitShares, and many of the people working on Steem are also very active in BitShares. If Steem had not been invented, BitShares would have ground to a halt because their were no development funds, and some of the devs NEED TO EAT, and NEED TO FEED THEIR CHILDREN.

There are some very "entitled" people in BitShares who think they are owed something beyond what had been produced by the time development funds ran out (and further funding through dilution - a very common business practice, as in new funding rounds - could not get the required votes).

And look at BitShares Munich, one of the leading sources of BitShares development now.  It has brought in thousands of dollars of bitshares development funds for itself BY POSTING ABOUT IT ON STEEMIT.COM and getting upvoted there (when it couldn't raise enough funding by selling its OPENPOS asset on the DEX).

The ignorance sometimes displayed in this forum is stifling.

thanks for your view of an "inside
r".

Aren't you the guy who took month after month of pay from the blockchain to fund his own bitshares-related business startup? And then shut it down?

Yours is the type of ignorance that I am talking about. And your constant negativity and bitterness are not only stifling, but counterproductive.

true, and the opensourced codebase is here: https://github.com/wildbunny/metaexchange
the community paid for this and for this reason the codebase is opensource.
but, why has my personal opinion something to do with this?
