Someone pointed out to me that BitShares is #4 and not #3.  I don't consider Ripple a crypto-currency.  So BitShares is #3 after BTC and LTC.

Anyone disagree ?

Bitshares is not a crypto currency but a centralized bank.

#3 Crypto is Doge / NXT tied

There ain't no Revolution like a NEMolution.  The only solution is Bitcoin's dissolution! NEM!

"Centralized bank"  that is a new one.  Thats even worse than claiming NXT has 23 stakeholders !

Bitshares actually contains crypto currencies, bitUSD and bitCNY, as well as crypto asset bitGLD

And. yes, Bithsares has some aspects of a bank (and of an exchange), but it is definitely no more centralized than bitcoin or Doge.

I believe it would be highly accurate to call it a crypto-bank, especially after listening to this hangout.

1:06 What about the analogy of mining? Discussion of Ethereum and Dan gives a high level analogy that points out wonky logic.

What wonky logic about Ethereum did Dan point? I remember at one time Bitshares wanted a partnership with Ethereum. Why if it's got wonky logic?

Listen to that part of the show.  It was a discussion of the community and their views on DPOS. IIRC the partnership was along the lines of trying to sell Vitalik on DPOS. 

Vitalik doesn't like the politics of DPOS, but mining pools are having politics/votes but it is just never talked about. Listen to the show. 

Anything I've heard from Dan is very respectful, but that doesn't mean there isn't some cognitive dissonance going on in certain circles.
