I have a stock in GLBSE, and think I could have raised additional funds if there was an independent site that made a few phone calls on behalf of potential investors.
* I could post an "information checked by XYZ company" on my website/signature. If XYZ adds value to my stock, I would pay for it. Similar to verisign.
A "level 2 service" could have a guarantee of some sort, where you hold some coins payable to investors in case of a scam/fraud. These funds could come from investors betting the site isn't a scam, not necessarily from the companies.
Are you aware that the GLBSE stock you hold is not backed by or controlled by GLBSE? It is more or less a scam.
Thank you for your input about the verisign model of doing things. An interesting idea.
I think he meant he has a stock of his own listed there, not that he bought some of the fraudulent GLBSE issues. I figured this from the fact the he talks about raising more funds.
