Bitshares lets you trade crypto fast and cheap without worrying about the exchange getting 'hacked' or shut down by gubberment and losing all your money. It is awesome and people should only use centralized exchanges to move in and out of fiat. Do your trading on the Bitshare's DEX and you don't have to worry about some lowlife stealing your coins!

I agree with you. But not all people knows this. That's why I made this introduction.

Enjoyable thread I was about to post a similair post. The popularity of the cryptos is currently determined by the biggest group of uneducated investors in man kind. It's an interesting world we live in. I found this amazing platform: https://www.coincheckup.com This site did all the research for you. It's truly amazing.
