Thanks for the Hertz shout out, I've now released the Hertz whitepaper to the public:

Thank you for posting @steempower.

This information regarding Bitshares is appreciated as well as the various links.

There was a query over at Bitshares Discord concerning unknown arbitrary tokens showing up in one's wallet.........and since you have requested we submit queries about anything else we may want steempower to is a query....

Who, What, Why, are these coins one receives in one's account...seemingly because one is an active trader......or for another reason. How does one contact them to say 'thank you'?

All the best.


These are tiny sharedrops to get people to notice the coins.

You can think of it like spamming the chain to get people to notice your new token.

When I get these, I usually move them to a second account, so they don't confuse me when I look at my main wallet.

We get the same thing happening on steem when someone sends you 0.001 SBD and then spams you saying "please upvote my post"

Thank you for the kind explanation @intelliguy.

Appreciate the idea of where to store them as well.

All the best.


After seeing these updates on Bitshares Network, I became sure it's one of the most promising cryptocurrencies, as it's not just Currency but I consider it a full ecosystem.

I knew about Bitshares recently, but I didn't know much about it, but after using Bitshares Wallet which contains many Decentralized exchanges inside it, I loved it so much as I can safely store any coins I want there in these decentralized Exchanges (inside Bitshares wallet) without being worry about my coins.

Not Only Exchanges but also, Bitshares allows anyone to generate his own token.
Bridge Exchange generated his "Bridge coin" using Bitshares Blockchain and AEX Exchange will generate his token using Bitshares Blockchain too.

So, These updates today on Bitshares Network made me optimistic about Bitshares future, I see it a great Investment opportunity since its price is still low (This is my personal opinion and not financial advice)

Thank you so much for sharing these updates with us :)

Its a great way to catch up on all the news and events :)

yeah. very helpful.

Can someone tell me how to get open.steem out of bitshares and into steemit because openledger does not have the option to let me withdraw steem! works good for that.. you can trade for BTS and then transfer BTS to blocktrades and turn it into STEEM

both STEEM and SBD deposits/withdrawals have been disabled for months, they call it maintenance...
It's one of the few bad things about OpenLedger

Funny as per usual, they come up with all these things you have to do to make it work, and then don't tell you about it :/

nor does Poloniex right now.

Time to buy more BTS! Bright future indeed!

Thanks again for another excellent update on the State of Bitshares!

Reading through, I came across something that has peeked my interest this week:
"PoloniEX has seemingly emptied their BTS cold wallet (poloniexcoldstorage) into their hot wallet (poloniexwallet). This may be related to the recent news that Circle has acquired PoloniEX."

What will this imply, especially knowing who PoloniEX was acquired by? I am still digesting the news...

Namaste :)

I wonder about this too. It is in Poloniex' best interest to keep BitShares' price as low as possible, so maybe they could use it for that. Eventually, they would run out of coins to dump, though.

Good information @steempower. Thank you

I love seeing the growth in the community. I wonder what poloniex is going to do with their BTS now in the hot wallet?

upvoted at resteemed :D

Ok, I looked over the entire report and the only thing I noticed is that Bitsapphire was spelt Bitsaphire

So you are only missing one "p"

Other than that, the entire report seems quite accurate to me. Every letter, every fact. A job well done. I don't know what we'd do without these.

good time for investors

good post..thank you for the information about steemit ..

you have a good post hear420_Ly9jb2ludGVsZWdyYXBoLmNvbS9zdG9yYWdlL3VwbG9hZHMvdmlldy9lMTRhYjY1ZTNjZTM5ZTU3YTFmM2UyY2Q0MDJlOTNmNS5qcGc=.jpg

Maybe BTS have a great future but or is quickly affected by inflation i still remember when BTC was in 16k $ BTS was worth 0.92$ and now when BTC declined BTS lose much value the price now maybe between 0.18$ and 0.23$

We been testing and using BTS since it's Beta launch and thereafter. We were, and still are a big believe of this Blockchain Ecosystem of its own.

Great job on this elaborate State of Network. Surprise nothing about collaboration with Autonio.

We support your efforts and promote your good work. I will definitely add this link to our Facebook Members Page.
