HOw do I short BITUSD?
« on: October 16, 2015, 12:07:53 am »
Can someone explain?  DO I just sell USD?  I want to short USD that people are trying to buy.

You press the "Borrow USD" button and specify how much you want to short, and with how much collateral.

In 2.0 you always short BitUSD to yourself first and then sell it onwards I think.

While youre at it, short some BitBTC!

I will try.  Why is nobody bootstrapping the network?

I guess you are referring to lack of history, am I right?

This is a bug, reported here: https://github.com/cryptonomex/graphene-ui/issues/339

I mean lack of market depth.  I would think there would be more volume by now.
