What happens if Daniel Larimer dies? -- how open, complete and understandable is the code and the project as a whole?

-- i totally do not wish this, but having this contingency would probably make him never to be a target to any bad-actors...

The Dan dac is under development and will embed my consciousness where it can live for ever

 +5%

Haha...  great answer!!!  Thanks... reason I asked is that I remember really loving the bitcoin wiki on contingencies... does Bitshares have such a page?  -- it could also address all the possible results of a 51% attack, your falling in Love and dropping this project for ever, or beaming your DAC self to another galaxy

How many BTSx's should I buy if I have about 100 bitcoins now?

Is there any point to buying PTS/AGS's also? 

Has anyone done the calculations on maximizing investment/purchase of Bitshares with potential future scenarios?

That's an investment decision you should answer yourself .. if you as in NXT
they will tell you buy NXT worth 100 BTC .. if you ask in counter party they
will tell you the same with XCP ..
Asking here could result in the same .. but I am NOT giving that advice ..

In fact I NEVER give an investment advice ..

Sorry for not answering your question

AGS donation period is over .. no chance here

If you are interested in BTSX .. buying PTS does just not make any sense ..
If you were interested in upcoming bitshares DACS that honor the PTS/AGS
snapshot social consensus .. than you should buy pts

Not me .. sorry .. I am 'blindly' following my gut feeling :)

if i did buy some PTS/AGS how do I get "my share" of future DACS

is there a publicly (transparent) blockchain-explorer type site where these 10% allocations are viewable?

I see the point of new dacs "giving" to PTS/AGS holders, but how do they "give" is there a nice site to browse previous allocations like that?

They add the addresses of people who donated to AGS/are holding PTS to the genesis block of the new DAC. Then you download the DAC, and you use your private key to prove it is you who donated/was holding PTS. Before the DAC comes out the developer usually posts a list of all the addresses and how much they're getting, so you can verify that the amount you're getting makes sense mathematically.

Thanks... I will have to do this a few times, and I will get it.  I was just wondering if there is a site to see this data now.

I'm trying to understand this, so I can better explain to others :)

on the theme of my earlier "stupid question" about poor Dan being STOPPED PERMANENTLY   :'(

What would happen if the US Gov't "Shremed" the whole team in the USA?  (Shremed = Jailed, blocked, detained)

What percent of "all core/lead developers"  NOT residing in the USA?   :)

PS: I haven't found the site/video where Dan discusses this, could someone please share the link, thanks.  :)

If I was selecting my, at least 3rd, handle for this forum I would have chosen something more self-describing... like bitFamous_morethanabitBitter...  but it is just me,  all this is below you... but is it really? Such a big empire such a small man on top of it.  :)

ughhh... okay... so is there a real answer there somewhere?  I have no idea, is there like thousands of programmers working on this around the world that I just don't know about?

I guess the thread can be renamed: Stupid Questions... funny/weird answers thread!  :)

Do you have a point or something?
Or just California style - just change the subject to whatever?

Very nice way of quoting yourself, happybit! I should learn this style myself.
