Original announcement by Ben on PeercoinTalk.org located here.

The Peershares development team is proud to announce the formal release of the Peershares template demonstration network (version 0.1.0)!

What is Peershares?

Peershares are an inexpensive and decentralized ledger to be used by individuals, businesses, and organizations for tracking share ownership and distributing dividends in an automated fashion. Shares can be transferred and held just like other cryptocurrency units, such as peercoins or bitcoins.

Using Peershares, individuals, businesses, or organizations of any size could raise funding through an initial offering without depending on a third party such as a stock exchange. While trading shares through exchanges will be useful to provide liquidity, Peershares can be traded on any number of exchanges just as Peercoins can.

Each business using Peershares will have their own blockchain that is independent of all others. Blockchains can be secured cheaply and easily using Peercoin's proof-of-stake, once the initial (issuer-controlled) quantity of shares have been generated using proof-of-work.

Issuers can distribute dividends as Peercoins, which can then be held by the investors, or if they would prefer, can then take those dividends and convert them to another cryptocurrency or fiat through their preferred exchange. Being distributed, a share issuer is not vulnerable to the failure of single stock exchange.

Most importantly, Peershares are accessible by anyone. The template is open-source, and free to download and customize.


How does it work?

The client binaries in this release are intended to demonstrate the integration of a single Peershares offering's test network with the official Peercoin test network. This version of Peershares (0.1.0) is compatible with version 0.4 of the Peercoin network protocol.

If you intend to use the Peershares template for your own offering, you will need to customize the code and compile your own binaries and establish your own network! If you would like to learn how to do this, please review the setup instructions on the Peershares wiki.

Important! The client binaries included in this release (and all subsequent releases) have had their "RealNet" intentionally disabled. If you do not include the configuration file, peershares.conf, the client will close with an error when you try to launch it.

To connect to the Peershares template test network:

1. Download the Peershares client binary for your operating system.
2. Launch the client; it will quickly fail, but at the same time it will have created the directory where the application's data files will be stored.
3. Create a text file called peershares.conf with the information needed to connect to the testnet. You will need to change the values for rpcuser and rpcpassword to something that only you know. After you've entered the content, save the file.

Code:
testnet=1
rpcuser=changeme
rpcpassword=changeme
addnode=54.255.142.16
addnode=54.72.105.68
addnode=54.207.53.43
addnode=54.81.120.250

4. Move the newly created peershares.conf file to the Peershares application data directory. This will be different depending on which operating system you use:
  • For Linux systems: ~/.peershares/
  • For Windows systems: C:\Users\<YOUR_USER_NAME>\AppData\Roaming\Peershares
  • For OS X: ~/Library/Application\ Support/Peershares/
5. Launch the Peershares application. This time, it will connect to the official Testnet and synchronize with the block chain.
6. To receive a distribution of testnet shares, please follow these instructions.


What's next for Peershares?

The Peershares development team is heavily involved in their own implementation (NuBits) built on top of the Peershares framework at this time, so we're limiting our public-facing development on the Peershares project for the near-future. However, because we're actively building on top of the Peershares template, we're always making improvements. These improvements will, in many cases, find their way back into the Peershares template codebase.

We're committed to addressing any issues uncovered by others who use the template, so please do not hesitate to submit reports for anything that you discover.

Is Peershares a new coin?
Each Peershares offering runs on it's own block chain, so it's fair to say that each instance is it's own cryptocurrency, but it would be more accurate to describe each as a unique cryptoasset.

Quote
Can I pay out dividends in digital currency other than Peercoin?
The Peershares template is designed to use peercoins as the dividend currency. While it is possible to customize an individual offering to support other digital currencies, it will require making changes to the source code.

To learn more about how Peershares uses peercoins to pay dividends.

Do I have to give up equity to the Peershares team if I use the template?
No. The Peershares template is offered free of charge, under an MIT License. This means that you are free to repurpose the source code for both personal and commercial projects. It permits reuse within proprietary software provided all copies of the licensed software include a copy of the MIT License terms.

THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED "AS IS", WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AUTHORS OR COPYRIGHT HOLDERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, DAMAGES OR OTHER LIABILITY, WHETHER IN AN ACTION OF CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, ARISING FROM, OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOFTWARE OR THE USE OR OTHER DEALINGS IN THE SOFTWARE.

Quote
Is it legal for me to raise funds by selling shares to investors?
The Peershares team cannot answer this question for you. Different locations are governed by different rules, and it is the responsibility of the owner of the offering to make sure that they are aware of the legal and financial conditions that apply to them.

Quote
I'd like to use the Peershares template to create an offering, but I'm not very technical. Can you do it for me?
Beginning to use Peershares to manage your business’s equity will likely require some technical assistance. Please contact the Peershares team (Peershares at gmail dot com) for details about the services we can offer to support you.

Peershares is another example of the power and possibilities of the blockchain.

Brought to you by Peercoin!

Find out how this works yourself with this nicely prepared test environment and prepare yourself for the next generation of blockchain implementations. It is real and working, brought to you by a top notch development team and everything is open source (MIT license).

Have fun!
