OpenLedger Market Censoring
« on: November 16, 2016, 01:44:16 am »
The OpenLedger implementation of the BAE (bitshares asset exchange) is hiding "bit." assets. I hope they realize that these assets are a vital part of bitshares' uniqueness and usefulness, a totally decentralized USD-pegged token is huge.

They seem to be doing this to promote their own open.assets. These are not decentralized assets and carry counterparty risk, like any asset on a traditional exchange. Certainly you will always have the blockchain asset, but if openledger folds then open.btc doesn't have value. Just like gox.btc or cryptsy.btc or eventually polo.btc in the future.

Users can still use these markets and and keep these bit.assets in their wallets, but the exchanges must be sought out manually.

I want openledger to show all BTS markets and include the markets with the greatest volume, not just the markets they gain fees from. bit.CNY and bit.USD should be near the top of the BTS markets.

All the best,
Kenmonkey

I've noticed they have been changing the lists the last few days.  BitUSD is still there but the rest you have to search for.

I would imagine they will make a tab with the BitAssets.

Openledger is implementation on top of Bitshares.  It is made for promoting Openledger assets.  If you want a pure bitshares wallet then use  refefence bitshares wallet.  Anyone can design a wallet that highlights their assets. That's what makes bitshares unique and flexible.

Omitting "OPEN" in front of asset name is a really bad practice since other assets with same names exist in same client. It is awfully  confusing. If Openledger wants to make their client exclusive for trading their assets, they should make it clear and disallow other assets.

Yes, we are. Openledger found a nice way to attract customers ... to their competitors.
