Our marketing guys got on my case today.

"Why do you keep posting to that thread with the negative headline?", they asked.

"Because that's where my favorite troll hangs out", I said.  
"He brings in all kinds of eyeballs with his whacky graphics!"

"Yeah, well, it doesn't look good.  Can't you move to a thread with a more positive headline?", they grumbled.

"But nobody will stop by without some gratuitous controversy", I pleaded.
"His negative thread is where all the eyeballs will be!  There's been nearly over 7000 views on that one thread alone!"

"Don't worry", they assured me, "Your troll will move to the new thread if that's the only place you post."
"Then you can have the best of both worlds!  A warm, fuzzy headline and lots of great troll droppings!"

I'm still a bit skeptical, but I promised them I would give it a try.  So here goes.

BitShares Loves Puppies!


These are actual Great Pyrenees puppies raised by BitShares Founder Dan "Bytemaster" Larimer.

Stay tuned to this thread for periodic updates about what we're doing at BitShares.
(Historically we've been criticized for sticking mostly to BitSharestalk.org Forum.)
But as you can see, we've recently started working hard to bring more useful content here.  Hope you like it!

In addition to some outrageous (even funny) troll FUD, these contain some serious discussions among the foul droppings.

One of the biggest strengths of BitShares, DAC is that it is able to autonomously hire its own developers and marketeers by automatically recycling a few percent of its growth to pay their salaries - without involving any corruptible manned company.  This is an often overlooked form of decentralization you don't find in many leading blockchains.

Of course, this leads to worries about whether delegates are earning their pay, so we encourage them to give periodic reports to the stakeholder community who elect and fire them.

I like to highlight delegates who are doing a particularly good job of implementing this "Hired by the Blockchain" vision.  Here is this week's admirable example of what having up to 101 paid delegate slots can do for a chain:

Hmmmm......think your marketing boyz should recognise that your 'favourite troll' is actually responsible for raising BTS' profile on BitCoinTalk in the last few weeks.
And, as the old saying goes, theres no such thing as bad publicity.  Not to mention that he may have a valid point or two......

Anyhow, all this is completely moot, because now that Stan has come out in favour of puppies for BTS, I have an announcement to make:

NXT! We love kittens more !



OK. NXT wins. Obviously.

Hmm, that seemed almost too easy.

Nulli Dei, nulli Reges, solum NXT

That was not a flaw. Just some suggestions how to improve security, if I recall correctly.

There is no such thing as bad publicity and people are more likely to read through a thread calling Bitshares a scam than something bland and informative.

Hell, I learned a lot about Bitshares through that thread and thought the meme's were pretty funny

Just for kicks, here is another meme for you which represents Bitshares as a Cryptocurrency

Now THAT is a more civilized competition!


And now a word from our sponsor:

Bytemaster just published some insights about how the BitShares Decentralized Exchange deals with front running.

Quote

Front running happens when a broker executes his own orders prior to executing the orders of his customers. This can be extremely profitable to the broker which can buy a stock just before a large buy order pushes the price up and then sell the stock just before a large sell order pushes the price down. This can occur any time one market participant has the ability to see orders from other participants and insert new orders in front of them. BitShares has an open order book and all transactions are broadcast for all to see with up to 10 seconds notice. This means that anyone can see your order and change their order to maximize their own profit. To protect users BitShares uses a you get what you asked for (YGWYAF) market engine that produces the same result for the market participants as perfect front running. This article explains why.


Read the rest here...  How BitShares Prevents Front Running

We now resume our regularly scheduled pet tournament...

This just out - integration with ShapeShift!  (I think that's a fox, not a cat, in their logo.)



What's cool about this is you can move your BTC to BitUSD in about 60 seconds and bring them back to BTC when you want to spend them.

Why would you want to do this?

Well, while it's in your BitUSD "Savings Account", you earn variable interest (generally at least 1% right now) and you are insulated from drops in BTC price.  Bring it back to your Bitcoin "Checking Account" when you want to make a payment.  (Or send it directly as BitUSD to someone with a BitShares wallet in just 10 seconds.)  

Conversion among other currencies and BitAssets is coming soon.

You can see this at https://shapeshift.io/

This is brilliant,  +5%

I just tested with BTS to bitUSD just for fun: sent 1000 BTS, got ~10 bitUSD back in the next block. Pure awesomeness Smiley

Now if they can add bitEURO and bitCNY as well, maybe even bitGOLD, then they'll have a full pseudo-fiat <=> BTC service Smiley

Anyone know what their depsit limits depend on? Will they get increased with time?

So hot

Your missing a link to the website and people are pretty lazy to go and google it.

You guys should work on some games to add, big investors and a forum full of rocket scientists are great but surely you are missing out on the massive amount of noobs. DogeCoin doesn't have the tech but they do have a fun community which keeps people around and arguably some of the best marketing around.
