The user dashboard and asset explorer also received some tweaks in this release. Check out all the updates HERE.

  • Due to an unforeseen event, new code in the BitShares back-end, that was supposed to only active by end of November, caused a disagreement with block production nodes. Witness nodes rolled back to previous version of the core software for a speedy resolution to the issue. You can read the announcement HERE.

Hey Mr. L.

Wrote about you last week, with your genius son!


Have a good end to your week, how about that No Segwit volatility today??!!

BTC crossed the $10k mark in Canadastan today on that run. Finally!!!! It was close for days.


Great Idea! writing it in my notepad now

I only found this website a few days ago - such a great resource!


Excuse me sir, if you have the time. You might consider looking at this

A new version of the Bitshares core client has been released this week

Can you refer to this as the reference wallet instead? Thanks for the comprehensive report!


Hi Bill, Great work on the reference wallet! really looking nice these days

Sure thing, normally this is exactly how i refer to it, not sure how it slipped past.


Excuse me sir, if you have the time. You might consider looking at this

That agorise mobile wallet gave me kreygasm



It is a lovely looking wallet for sure. I cannot wait to get my hands on it :)


For sure it is. I hope one day I'll be able to pay my bills using Agorise wallet.
For sure it is. I hope one day I'll be able to pay my bills using Agorise wallet. I hope it does come in pink.


That "Carbon" wallet is just 1 of the 7 products @Agorise is releasing this year and next.

More info in the telegram chat:

Done and signed up and shared on social networks! Thanks, @steempower. Resteemed.


Great to hear, Welcome and thank you!

Thanks @steempower for sharing these amazing updates.

That Agorise mobile wallet looks amazing. If you follow that direction for the main Bitshares UI client you are setting yourself up to win. It is the wallet that other DEX projects are working on, but you apparently already (almost) have. Could be huge.

Oh .. nice article.. am very bullish on BTS... Just one letter different from BTC..

I had an intuition too regarding BTS and read my blog to see how it turned out... Long term too I had a strong intuition..

Look at this article if you have time.. would prove to be a good read..

Congratulations @steempower, this post is the third most rewarded post (based on pending payouts) in the last 12 hours written by a Superhero or Legend account holder (accounts hold greater than 100 Mega Vests).

Great article with great analytics and information. Following.

Hello & Cheers!! I'm a content detection and information bot. You are receiving this reply because a short link or links have been detected in your post/comment. The purpose of this message is to inform your readers and yourself about the use of and dangers of short links.

To the readers of the post: Short links are provided by url shortening services. The short links they provide can be useful in some cases. Generally their use is benign. But as with all useful tools there are dangers. Short links can be used to hide all sorts of things. Quite frequently they are used to hide referral links for instance. While not dangerous this can be deceptive. They can also be used to hide dangerous links such as links to phishing sites, sites loaded with malware, scam sites, etc. You should always be extremely cautious before clicking on one. If you don't know and trust the poster don't click. Even if you do you should still be cautious and wary of any site you are sent to. It's always better to visit the site directly and not through a short link.

To the author of the post: While short links may be useful on some sites they are not needed on steemit. You can use markdown to format your links such as this link to steemit. It's as simple as [steemit]( Unlike short links this allows the reader to see where they are going by simply hovering over the link before they click on it.

This message was created by a bot. It is part of the ongoing fight against spam and phishing attacks on steemit. If you did not use short links in your post and feel you have received this message in error you can contact @fubar-bdhr on discord or @fubar.bdhr on steemit chat to report the issue.

Awaiting to read this summary report for 7 days! Great you shared it today friend!
