Discuss moving the Bitsharestalk.org forum over to Steemit
Hey all. As we can all see the Steemit platorm is progressing well and many of us are excited about the great potential. There may have been some disappointment that Bytemaster shifted his focus to Steemit instead of Bitshares, but over time I think more and more in the Bitshares community will discover how the success of Steemit can be a great boon for the Bitshares community. Most people here are from Bitshares anyway so might as well bring everyone else over and work together to make both projects reach its full potential!
Here are some of the top reasons to move:
1. Steemit Is A Great Platform for Forum Discussion.
It's easy to read, has great UI/UX, has collapsable threads and more. There is already discussion of moving the Bitsharestalk forum to use new software. I liked Bitsharestalk because of the familiarity, great discussion and memories, but there is a time and place for everything and I think it's a perfect time to be reborn on the Steemit platform.
Bytemaster invented and is vested in both Steemit and Bitshares. The success of either will enhance the other. The Bitshares decentralized exchange is a natural bridge/gateway/exchange platform for STEEM and STEEM dollars to trade with all the many other cryptocurrencies out there!
3. Working Together As A Team
First off, it's far more convenient to use one forum than go back and forth between the two to read the same content. We will be diluting our time, resources and efforts using two forums. Again many of us STEEMers are from Bitshares anyways. Oftentimes independent-minded individuals like many of those in the Bitshares community like to do their own thing and that's great, but many other times it's better and necessary to work together as a team. I think this is one of those times.
4. Replacement for Bitshares Worker Proposals
It was extremely difficult funding Bitshares projects with the DAO for a variety of reasons, but Steemit allows Bitshares contributors to be rewarded for a wide range of projects and even just valuable ideas!
Just look at the potential for Bitshares-related projects here:
..and we're just getting started! Steemit can be a large part of the funding mechanism we've been looking for all along to foster and grow the Bitshares ecosystem!
So what say you Bitshares community? (Will be reposted in Bitsharestalk.org )
