so by raising this issue hard now means it can be tackled now before it really does progress to a court system which means we all lose and this great experiment is doomed... so its better if they need to take a step back and instead of pushing time and effort on software they put all that effort into sorting out the legalities to ensure this has a future like they are building for... otherwise it will have been for nothing...

 +5% +5% +5% +5% +5% +5% +5% +5% +5% +5% +5% +5%

100% disagree. Better to write the software first. They can put all of I3 in jail and BTS X will still be running on a global scale, invested developers will move to singapore or some shit like that. That said, you should consider how much more I3 cares about not getting in trouble than even you do.

Freedom of speech implies freedom to trade - this is the new reality. I can understand not wanting to take the risk in the short term, but in the long term we either deteriorate into a global totalitarian surveillance state or this becomes unquestionably legal.

Too extreme?

For future non BTSX DACS, AGS will also give the same as PTS, except that you can't sell AGS. For the BTSX chains, though, AGS is much more profitable as 1 AGS gives you 3.33 BTSXT while 1 PTS gives you only 1.3 BTSXT.

If you are more interested in the future non BTSX DACs, I would suggest you to buy in March. I expect a massive drop in both PTS and AGS price after 28th Feb.

I mean will we be getting dividents from all future DACs by just holding our PTS in our own wallet?

if I understood clearly from graphic above, holding PTS is the most profitable choice, because it covers every future DACs, am I right?

I'm confused, but this AGS/PST BTSx allocation seems ridiculously fare. Maybe I'm misunderstanding it.

What a thread!

It has every emotion and information you could hope for from an internet forum, As a newbie, this was a very helpful read, but nobody has really touched on the storm of post-screen cap. Will PST holders need to hold after screen cap to import wallets to BTSx client or should I be going off the advice of what was written in the article recently posted?

It takes literally a half hour to set up a nice looking branded blog  with tumblr.com

True. Even if it was a placeholder until the new site. It's getting really hard to find info, and going to get worse for another 30 days...

A new website is coming March 21st:
https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=2927.msg36583#msg36583

By the sound of it, it should address most of the items of concern discussed in this thread.  Be a little more patient as big things are just around the corner!

the problem being, the time for action will be BEFORE its up and running... otherwise you're at the mercy of reading thousands of forum messages daily hoping you stumble across the right announcement or information... in which case I've clearly pointed out you stumble across conflicting information posted by various employees that does not match...

That being said, here is the article that Adam mentioned earlier that was recently posted over on the LTB site.
http://letstalkbitcoin.com/caution-watch-for-falling-pts/
This is a prime example of what should be available on the main Invictus site, specifically the bitshares product page. Utilize a product blog for official statements and updates, use the forums for discussions, update the blog when things change, rinse and repeat.
I'm very much looking forward to earning my +5% on anything.

This article was available on our website within hours of being published:

http://invictus-innovations.com/links/

This is our preferred method - get it published somewhere and then link to it.

Some publishers are reluctant to publish something that's already been up on our web site, so we have to do it in this order.

A top-end web site is coming in March - complete with the blog capability everyone has been wanting.

I'm really looking forward to that!

I stand corrected for implying that it was not there when it was, I did not see it, but stumbled across it on the LTB site. I was making the suggesting that having it under what looks like to me the current product page http://invictus.io/bitsharesx.php might get more eyes on it.

I know you guys are working really hard on all of this. I really look forward to seeing the new site and blog, it will be great to consolidate.

Another suggestion would be that on the new site, when a blog post is made, it is also posted on the various official social media accounts for max dissemination. (Twitter, etc.)

wasn't +5% dropped from Bitshares XT?

That is my understanding (that it is to be added in a later DAC, probably over a year off because other DACS will be worked on first)

Well this was a good 5 page read, lots of information and I have to agree with many points made by many people. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out over this next week and into what we all hope will be many successful launches of the various products.

The #1 thing I am hearing through all these posts is the need for a central location for the "official word" on these rules and guidelines. A forum is a great communication tool, but a blog or product FAQ is a more professional way to set these very important factors and descriptions in stone so to speak. There is no doubt that it is all very confusing unless you have the time to dedicate many hours of reading a day to keep up with it. (many don't)
