In this game you will master a new global financial system.
One that solves most of the problems you’ve had with the old one.

One that could greatly improve your own prosperity
while directing
One Billion Dollars
to the twelve best humanitarian causes on the planet.

Yes, we are giving away a billion dollars
just to show everyone how to escape the current system.
The economic matrix that’s been pulled over your eyes
interfering with your economic health and well-being
since before you were born.

It won’t cost you anything to play.
But what you learn by playing could make a huge difference
in your own life
And in the lives of others you will help.

Keep your own money
growing rapidly in your own wallet
safe from all foul play.

Help fund your favorite cause.

And give the world its first Honest Money.

Of the people,
by the people,
and for the people.

Fantastic. You are my HERO @stan

Re-steemed!............Promoted!

And I have borrowed into existence and sold into the marketplace over 1500 HERO.

Hey, I'm a Hero too!*

·

WOW! This is very impressive, you definitely deserve the HERO title as well!Keep it up crypto-musketeer!

All for one and one for all! Namaste :)

·
·

@eric-boucher is EVERYWHERE dropping his awesome comments!

·
·

He is Hero he have steem Power too

·

You are no doubt a big reason behind the success of all Graphene related projects!

·

Awesome to hear! I'm new here but a big fan of BitShares and stoked to create my first Hero. Thanks for the nudge to go for it. If you've made 1500, I can surely do my first. :) Looking forward to following you.

·

Congratz bro :)

·

Congrats !!! ;) Upvote

·

I wish you would do a video on this. That's amazing!

·
·

I really want to join. I dont have team or much money. I have 100$ at max.. can I join?

·

Me here also lol

Excellent Stan. I am going to start doing videos soon to help. :)

·

If you didnt want to buy HERO before, you must now. Lets not let the Fed/Treasury/Income Tax system screw us for life. @majes what exchange did you use?

·
·

The DEX

https://bitshares.openledger.info

But check the webite and other post Stan mentions, you may just want to buy BTS and borrow the HERO...

·
·
·

Or short it if you are @billbutler

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I consider shorting HEROs into existence, using bts as collateral, to be the first truly near zero risk and no-brainer way to get rich in a relatively short period of time that I have ever seen.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Looking into that, thanks...

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

@onceuponatime That strategy sounds familiar, executing others ideas is hard though. @Billbutler might give you some more in depth detail of execution strategy.

·
·
·
·
·
·

you and bill butler inspired me to do the same. I only did a small amount, but it was pretty cool to create Hero out of thin air so to speak!

Mmmmmm... the Hero. Very interesting.

Everything the dollar used to be...
Sound....
As good as gold...

I like Heroes.

What a powerful game and incentive to bring people on board the platforms we are all highly interested in. For the sake of quality, sustainability, smooth ramps of that nature will come handy on the long run for all of us.

Thank you so very much for all this amazing work @stan. All for one and one for all! Namaste :)

I'm in with HERO fo show!! Resteemed!

Hey, I'm a Hero too too. lol

And Promoted!

I just put 2 more HERO up for sale at BTS 527. Come and get em!

@stan, the purpose of hero is great and noble. But economics does not works on nobility it works on greed. Why anybody will vest their BTS for borrowing ever growing (5% a year) Hero, having better alternative withering USD?

·

Um, because that BTS will grow by 1000x right along with the grand prize?

·
·

Oh ya @stan, I'm hearing you!

·
·
·

loud and clear son!

·
·

But it will grow anyway, and one will get more shorting a USD than a Hero in a porcess.
And prize is a one-time matter. What after that?

·
·
·

For this to work, there must be demand for it from John Q Public. John needs a way to earn a safe 5%. He is not that interested in digital for digital's sake.

So we designed a coin that will interest main street. The 30 million retired members of AARP. The unbanked workers needing a way to save and send money home.

If they adopt it, and want to buy it, then there will be a reason to short it because we'll be able to sell it.

So you can go ahead and short the USD directly if you want to hoard that little 5% for yourself.

But will you be able to sell it for the same premium as the HERO? Will you be able to sell it at all in the presence of the HERO?

·
·
·
·

Hmmm... I see the point. Ambitious indeed.

Hope you right! I have some BTS after all, and peple need a stable currency - true... )))

One more question, if you please. Does not a Hero compete with a BlockPay? It's also based on BTS and aims to be widely used.

·
·
·
·
·

BitPay will probably adopt the Hero. :)

·
·
·
·
·
·

Wow. Ok. You got me )

Many thanks for your answers @stan and good luck to us all with a Hero!

·
·
·
·

So, like, the banks have developed a crypt Ripple, аnd then similar currencies just for those who want to transfer outside banks?

·
·
·
·

knowing when to hold, fold and also run! like Johnny cash said it! :D

·
·
·
·

Just note2self. So as always the winners are who get into it first if it appreciates.

Said perfectly! @Stan
~bluerocktalk🖖

Interesting concept. Noble cause . Thanks for being a HERO @stan Upvote!

@stan, i like keeping my own money and I never had money grow in my wallet. Inflation has destroyed most of my money. Steem On @stan

·

That is however specifically FIAT you are speaking of.

·
·

Absolutely right and I have a few digital wallets that generate new coin daily. It's the coolest thing I've ever seen and one coin made a 400% yesterday. Steem On friend

·
·
·

You too brother :)

Sounds interesting. I would like to see a Mars colony :)
Atlantis also would be great hehe

Let's play it since it's about the journey - not the destination - in this case however, we might be enjoying both ;-)

This is my kind of game! sounds really interesting. I've been trading on bitshares open ledger all day. I was just trying to get a feel for it. I love that you can go in and out of bitshares so easily with no long waits. I also love that you have access to so many coins which you may not see on other exchanges. Looking forward to Hero and learning more about it.

Just acquired some Hero. will be interesting to see how this plays out.

How many has been margin-called today?

hero billionaire yeah

Awesome!!!!

@stan I think i remember seeing a video where you mentioned something about a reality show. Is that still on the cards? I think that will help a lot with mass adoption. Your vision is so inspiring. Good luck and i hope we will see BTS explode to the moon soon.

·

The Reality TV Show is definitely in the plan. Many negotiations remain.

Lets Play this game....

It peaked my curiosity, thanks @stan

Follow me for the latest in tech news from my paid subscriptions to Barrons, the Wall Street Journal and many more..

1 Billion! Divided among 200k community members on here atm = 500k each! That's a lot of songs that I can produce and get recorded! I like to imagine and play and sing... it's nice to dream. Thanks for your post.

Not all HEROES wear capes. This is AWEsome!

By challenges a man makes perfect

Wow I love this, I've resteemed and upvoted

Very nice article @ stan!!!! Resteemed and upvote!!

Reestemed, upvote and follow you @stan

·

ahhhh thats gross!!!!

player 1- i am keen to help humanitarian causes too -am following and upvoting

We need more projects like this to shine a good light od cryptocurrency in general. Next time someone will be talking about evil crypto being used in drug deals etc. I can say "Yeah but have you heard about Billion hero challenge?" Great idea guys!

I am afraid this is too complicated for me.

Thank you

I hope so, there are so many people out there that could benefit from this, it is just that people dont trust a site. People think is a scam

this is a really good post full of the right stuff and we upvoted it

wowow thanks you are Boss Boss

What are the 'the twelve best humanitarian causes on the planet?' I am definitely curious to know which ones were chosen (or chose to play) and if they represent a spectrum of sectors that can work together. I am bias, I'd like to add a 13th overtone cause which works to synergize the other 12 into a whole system so they aren't working in silos or independent of each other (which is impossible).

·

They haven't been chosen yet. Any leader of a cause can enter. The twelve that bubble to the top win a share of the billion-hero-prize.

·
·

Thanks Stan. I have had a little trouble in following between here and hero site.. What is the best link to learn more about entering?

Elevator Speech
It's all about Honest Money. The hero is a stable, fast, appreciating market pegged asset that is backed by the equity of the platform which manages it. No counter party risk like other currencies backed by government debt or gold that may or may not be in a vault. And it grows, by definition, by 5% APR against the dollar. The Hero is borrowed into existence by someone who uses BTS as collateral - like a home equity loan uses your house as collateral. Except you can sell, trade, spend or hold the Hero like a coin.

Just watched the entire video. This is truly fascinating. I also was blown away to hear that Dan has built 5 blockchain projects. Great job describing the Hero game and investment

·
·
·
·

Awesome. Thank you. Perfect.

I am in love with this :) I will definitely participate and buy a HERO! I learned a lot from your blog and I picked up some good thought from the posts as I read through them. Thankyou, I am in!! upvoted and resteemed

·

No! Don't buy it! Buy bitshares -and if you like risk, BORROW a Hero and SELL it before everyone else does.

·
·

OK had go over a couple times :) got it!! Will buy bitshares and because I do like risk, I will borrow a HERO and sell before everybody else does. Thanks for the help :)

·
·
·

I hope you realise the risks involved. You can hold bitshares and watch from the sideline almost risk free. Everyone involved in short trade risk loosing their collateral.

·
·
·
·

what do you gain from borrowing hero and selling it? isn't everyone doing the same? +1 hero -1 hero ...

·
·
·
·
·

You gain the difference in purchase and sales price.

·
·
·
·
·
·

so hero's price changes all the time? what if i purchase it with higher price and end up selling it with lower price?
Since im too dumb, I better store bitshares. will bitshare price skyrocket as well?

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

It depends on how you look at it. As a bts holder, the price fluctuates wildly. Up to 100% the past days. But when you switch to the usd point of view, it is fairly stable. Hero is by design stable to reflect 1913(?) value of usd with a 5% yearly increase.

If you sell lower than you purchase, you allways loose. There is no difference there. But the way the hero is created, adds another risk. The hero is created by locking up bts. And if the collateral gets less value than you agreed, you will loose all of it. It is a nifty system that will make the supply of bts shrink.

I don't recommend doing this because of the risk of losing everything. It is another matter if you are a usd holder and use it to buy hero. At least on paper it looks like a much better deal.

My personal point of view is that bts will gain the most and holding it at least for a few months will probably be very good. Especially if this challenge is successful. But taking part in it? No. It is a high risk game. And I value my sleep much more than risking my bts.

Awesome vision. Bringing the power of wealth back into the hands of the people. The past few days I've been reading up on the Hero Challenge and it's definitely something that excites me greatly. I'm already a huge fan of BitShares and the decentralized exchange and all that is yet to come. Onward and upward!

Changed my life!

I signed up yesterday and can't way to get into HERO. This has restored my faith in humanity. I can't wait to see how cryptocurrency will positively influence the global market! RE-ESTEEMED!

"Unforgettable..."

It sounds reasonable but I am not that deep in the topic being afraid it ain t a scam, sorry

We all love heroes, but this could be the real deal. Cheers.

Let me be a Hero Also. But Also respect all People

Guys please check out my post about mysterious Dark Energy and a very interesting and intriguing way of how Universe could end

Does the prize get distributed to each member of the team, or the team leader?

The way you win is to have the most Hero sales tagged to your team, right?

Re-steemed ! Great article, please upvote, thanks

Fascinating!

Nice one stan! Re-steemed :)

Master the Global financial system? Id be happy if I could just manage my own finances.

This is what cryptois all about. My hat is off to you my friend. For the first time in civilised history the dynamics of social class and financial well being are in every individuals own hands. Thanks to blockchain technology the playing field had been completely leveled. Its up to us, the trailblazing digital pioneers to take matters into our own hands by finding new innovative ways to better mankind. "Money makes the world go 'round". I'm imagining how much more enjoyable each rotation will be after we clean up that money. Thanks, Stan.

How can i start this game?

I believe the crypto market is due for a reckoning soon where the strong will survive and most will die. HERO could be the guiding light. Another step closer to where we should be. I invest and promote cryptos based on their potential to change the lop-sided wealth structure and replace antiquated functions that will benefit humanity. The ones that do the good work. a community of HEROS will make real strides. I'm in.
