BitShares Looks To Lead Bitcoin 2.0 Movement

BitShares Looks To Lead Bitcoin 2.0 Movement | BitShares | Scoop.it
Ethereum first grabbed the attention of the Bitcoin 2.0 movement with news of their plan to create a platform for distributed contracts and DACs. BitShares and BitSharesX introduced the concept of “BitAssets” as one of the numerous technologies claiming to be “bitcoin 2.0” or “finance 2.0.” In essence, this “Bitcoin 2.0” movement represents a movement to leverage the power of globally decentralized consensus and decision making networks as birthed by bitcoin.

Metaexchange.info bitBTC gateway, soft launch

Metaexchange.info bitBTC gateway, soft launch | BitShares | Scoop.it

It's finally time for the soft launch of the Metaexchange bitBTC gateway! Metaexchange is a bitshares exclusive on/off ramp into bitAssets via bitcoin. We're starting with bitBTC because there is currently nowhere to get it outside the internal exchange, but we will be adding ALL other bitAssets gradually over time. Please let us know which bitAssets you would like us to add next!

We are funded by the blockchain, making Metaexchange one of the first in-house bitshares products to launch. As such, we're 100% open source, so you can fork us - the link to the repository is on the site. We answer to you, so we'd love to hear your feedback!

Startup Will Use Blockchain Tech to Disrupt Online Gaming

Startup Will Use Blockchain Tech to Disrupt Online Gaming | BitShares | Scoop.it
Chance games have come to rely almost exclusively on trusted third parties to provide random feeds. While this system works well enough, it is based on a centralized trust model, and suffers from the possibility of cheating by players. Even thought some crypto based games on the Internet have probably random feeds, which can be verified by the public, hidden players can cheat by submitting selective favorable transactions because they know the random secret in advance.

Beyond Bitcoin - 22 - BitAssets and the Austrians

Austrian economics is one of these impenetrable black boxes that you hear referenced occasionally but that has little meaning for many people.
Recently I was perusing Cameron Harwick's blog, Thrica where I periodically go to soak up some free market goodness, and I found myself re-reading
a post entitled Hayek vs. Rothbard on Free-Market Money. The article and the comments illucidate many interesting and relevant ideas that can not
only help us understand cryptocurrency but also show that the problem of discovering what is a good kind of money has been mulled over by
brilliant people long before the cypherpunks sunk their teeth into it. A clearly novel approach has been taken by the team working on Bitshares.
I asked Dan Larimer to explane the roots of his idea and update us on the progress of the platform.

Thinking of Crowd Funding your bitcoin/crypto project? Think Again.

Crowd funding is all the rage these days, especially among crypto-projects. For the first time in history we have a easy way to crowd fund on a global scale and everyone is doing it. It takes significant money to build, deploy, and maintain a new crypto-ledger and developers don’t work for free. Few developers have the resources necessary to support themselves for the years it takes for a crypto project to gain ground. BitShares had one of the largest crowd funding campaigns and has had an opportunity to learn a lot from it. Our conclusion: don’t do it.

PTS 2.0 - New DPOS chain launched

PTS 2.0 - New DPOS chain launched | BitShares | Scoop.it
BitShares PTS (originally named “Protoshares”) is the original crypto-equity of the BitShares ecosystem. PTS was created prior to development of the BitShares Toolkit, a revolutionary blockchain technology using Dan Larimer’s Delegated Proof of Stake consensus algorithm (DPoS). PTS is a sharedrop instrument for future decentralized autonomous companies (DACs) built upon the Toolkit. Per the BitShares social consensus, PTS holders will receive at least a 10% share in all future DACs.

Now that development of the Toolkit is complete and the first DAC (BTS) is launched, the time has come to upgrade BitShares PTS away from the slow and inefficient proof of work protocol to a new DPoS blockchain using the BitShares Toolkit. We invite you to join us in celebrating the rebirth of BitShares PTS - a historic original, a pre-eminent sharedrop instrument, and now with unparalleled DPoS technology.
