Free your mind, leave the system, agorise and decentralise.


Bitshares as a platform does work really really well.

Unfortunately the lack of liquidity in most of the coins and general lack of volume eventually lead me away.

Very true. The decentralised exchanges and atomic swaps don't get much love..............yet.

Wow even beyond my imagination that's really huge

Thank you blazing! :)

It really amazes me that their chain doesn't do much marketing, it's like a little secret with the insiders or something. All people have to do is look at and then they can see which chains are actually being used. should scare the livin doodoo out of btc maximalists, and other POW coin communities. We hold some btc, monero, bch etc too, but it doesn't hurt to at least diversify a bit into other algos too besides POW, like the DPOS Bitshares chain (BTS in particular).

when a central banker (who can print as much money as he/she wants) is ready to destroy one or more POW chains, they will.

I need to understand more about bitshare...

Yeah, I listed quite a bit in this post, and the scary thing is that's not all, either. Bitshares is truly amazing, it's still a hidden gem.
