to be honest i dont realy think, this is such a great idea and to many people would start using this. i have no idea of marketing and stuff like that though.

 +5%

+1 to your +5%

The thing I love about this forum is that a lot of great minds come together and push us toward improving everything.   After debates on whether or not BitAssets even need interest I have concluded that they do not and that any interest will serve as a 'constant' offset in price.   Implementing interest will take extra time that I am sure someone will experiment with after the initial release.   

So given the fact that markets will find a way of undoing my 5% interest by adjusting prices elsewhere and the risk is so low due to collateral it seems best to simplify everything and just use 0% interest.   BitUSD will be on par with cash in your pocket or a gold coin in your hand.  You hold it because you want price stability not for its yield.

So I will ask Amazon to remove the +5% meme and replace the +5% with old school + 1 so that we can avoid confusion. 

This means this marketing meme is now over despite being very good and catchy.  It also seems to draw negative attention and scam accusations.

I do think it would be a fun experiment to implement interest in a chain, but at this point time getting something on the market with value is probably best.

I think that's brilliant.

Need to update http://www.invictus.io/bitsharesx.php then. :\

I would definitely recommend taking this down.  If this was an SEC registered security it would be a clear violation.  Projects like this are potentially walking that tightrope already.  Just my 2 cents.

So BitSharesX needs a new tag line, probably focused more on the ability to further reduce market friction than on giving people free money...  :P

"Bring the market together."?
"Own your portfolio."?
"Trade anything, anywhere."?

The flux capacitor of finance, moving value through time and space.

Yes we are trying to come up with a new tag line, any ideas are welcome!

"Free your market."?  Then you could have lots of variants to keep things interesting.  "Free your market from distance."  "Free your market from middle-men."

Also with the "Free your market." tagline we get to do Matrix "Free your mind." parodies:

*Neo opens eyes*
Neo: "I know Austrian Economics."
Morpheus: "Show me."
