Thanks for the update.
The last list, 'top 100 distribution', seems to be a bit misleading as there are several accounts with a lot more collateralized bts, like 'alpha-dog' and 'aloha'.
Wouldn't it be more accurate to include them, or is the collateral considered lost in this statistic?


Thats a great question. I have considered this in the past but never changed the dataset.

I will pose the question in tonights beyond bitcoin hangout and see what the community would prefer. I will count your vote and mine as a yes.


what city is your bitcoin hangout?


Great, thanks!
Because you could argue that those with high collateral are probably much more active on the platform and shape the system more in general than those just passively holding bts and thus more interesting to check out for future movements in the community.

anyone here can explian me how vote proxy works


Proxy voting is simply delegating your voting power (1 BTS = 1 Vote) to an elected 'proxy'.

Proxy's are generally community members who follow the daily activities and may or may not be in a better position to vote on your behalf with a higher level of consciousness or knowledge.

You may just not have time to keep up to date with the stakeholder proposals and as such outsource/delegate your voting power to someone who has the projects best interest at heart.

Proxies are encourage to be open and transparent about their voting activities to keep their followers informed on the votes being cast.


ohk thanks alot sir @steempower


Thanks for the clarity @steempower..


Lot of posts can be found here(steemit)
and you can search at google also.


Heaps of useful information, thanks for sharing

Thanks for the news. I've pretty much lost all faith in Bitcoin as a viable tool for transactions and I'm looking to some of the other alts to take it's place. We need a Flippening and we need it soon! BTS, it's time for you to step up to the plate!

Is this accurate?

Or has it been mislabeled? Can't remember to see usdt this high ever.


I pull this data from bravenewcoin and have no reason not to trust it. Although given the recent bear market this could be the case of people exiting their hedges.. might be worth checking and keeping in mind as a leading indicator..


I just found it strange. That's all.


excellent, I give you my vote, but give me yours, I will love them forever


Im sure you friend had to take some heat along the way too; although probably to a smaller extent, but on multiple occasions


This way i am now finished friend!


Your friend invested in crypto.... You traded.


Tell him all he gotta do is HODL for a year or so

Was the best after party ever. It went till about 11pm EST, about a 12 hour party. I meet new friends, and we talked a lot of history!


Lol sometimes they get out of control.. i can never last that long but i have seen them run for 5+ hours

I thouroughly enjoyed that report. I'm very excited about the trading bot. I was wondering if you can explain to me the benefit of voting as a Bitshares shareholder. Also apart from the lifetime plan that gives you referral commissions; is there a way to produce passive income on Bitshares?


Voting is your right as a holder of BTS. It is your voice in the direction of the platform.
Only way to recieve BTS from the network is to be a worker, witness, asset issuer (% trading fees) or referrer. Referrer being the most passive option and lowest barrier to entry. There are other asset on the Bitshares network where just owning the asset will give a passive income but not any core assets


Ok thank you @steemvoter. This is a good response. How do I become a worker and what do workers do? Can you also explain a little more about how I can make passice in assets and how I can own or issue them Can my cow count as an asset to peg?

Thanks a lot for the great news! This new rating will definitely increase the exposure of a BTS well need reputation and intrinsic qualities. It sure deserves it!

Combined with the association with Lykke, we might be holding a bomb in the making!?! It sure looks and feels like it... Let's see how far the next star is! ;)

Namaste :)

Thanks for info.

It’s great to see that BTS is continuing to develop unlike most alt coins. I have high hopes for the future and the addition of new exchanges etc are particularly good news!


Very interesting and helpful postings, especially beginners like me. If possible, I want to absorb knowledge from you from my friends. thank you very much for that all

You regularly share this Information every weekend, this bitshares information will be useful for those who need it

I love reading these, it's nice to have all the info here in one place!

@Stan Larimer has done an interview with Daniel Rage on his show "Star Struck". You can find the video HERE. This interview is part of a 3 part series that has not been fully recorded at the time of posting this report. More information HERE

Thanks for the link. Try as I did, I couldn't find the link to that video.

i do not trust bitshares any more, it couldn't give any reaction even BTC increase %40, will be down to zero soon in the market


I disagree. Bts has a much bigger run up before Xmas. I can’t remember exact figures but I think I caught gains of approx 20x and now I’m still up 7-8x.


Your welcome to your opinion.. Check back in 6 month and see how your preduction panned out


we will see

Interesting post, thanks for the information.

hello my friend is still new in steemit, please help and input for me

a bit frustrating starting out as a newbie on steemit where you have no audience

Very detailed article!
All the graphs are kind of confusing at the beginning, though

Great report as usual. The only thing I don't understand is why the price just keeps falling lower and lower?

Bitcoin never be stop!!!
Now Every coin are up,i am now inspired if i invest some coin??

Fun lough!!!




#Bitshares is really one of my fav. platform.
It has a revolutionising idea. But it has definitely a lot to improve on. Because, it still doesn't support many coins which on other hand is very well supported by BIG exchanges.
This is the greatest problem with #Bitshares.
Once, it solves this will be unstoppable...and probably diminish the centralised exchange market.

WOW! 21,000+ new wallets in a week... Crazy. Congrats Bitshares! Bitshares is great!

@steempower thanks for the news about the updates on bitshares!

I have a question. If I have open.steem on my wallet, how can I transfer it to my steem account, since the openledger gateway is closed for steem now.

Is there a possibility to convert the open steem to rudex steem? Or some way to get my steem into my steem wallet?

Thanks for your help on this.

thank you

What other exchange gives this much detail and every week....just awesome wonder Weiss Ratings gave it a good grade...BTW, my father followed Weiss's ratings back in the late 80's and early 90's and was able to circumvent a bank closure and some bad investments because of their not saying they are crypto experts, but they are smart enough to know they aren't and spend the money hiring analysts in this field to help solidify a grade...a lot of money mangers and hedge funds follow their ratings...just thought i would put that out there

Is this accurate?

Nice research.
