NXT vs Bitshares/Ethereum partnership
« on: August 16, 2014, 02:24:00 am »

Bitshares and Ethereum are banding together, Vitalik thinks DPOS is the future (this is going to undermine beliefs of some in PoW world).

Source: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=6990

Does it mean both Vitalik and Dan are so afraid of NXT that they have to join efforts now? ;)

Saw that over at Bitcointalk. This has been an eventful day, hasn't it?

What does it mean for us?

it's not that vitalik or dan is doing this out of fear of nxt.  vitalik is doing this in search of a better (in his eyes) solution.

What it means for us is a choice.

A lot of choices recently, aren't there? ;)

To bet big on NXT or bet on both horses.

Dan, the creator of Bitshares has stated publicly that NXT is Bitshares' main competition, and that in a few years Bitcoin would be irrelevant, but NXT would still stand and compete with Bitshares. That speaks volumes of what he thinks of NXT.

Reading between the lines, it sounds like ethereum has some issues. Otherwise, what possible benefit does teaming with Bitshares have?

hmmmm..

The whole Bitshares ecosystem is confusing and Ether is two years in the making.

Functionally, Nxt is the next best thing to Bitcoin if not potentially better.

If Vitalik asked us to work together. Would we agree? I don't think so.

So he even didn't try to ask, because he know this as well.

Why the hell not? I think we should work together with others if possible.

It doesn't look good to move from PoS to PoW and then back to PoS. Stop wasting time on details, write code that would run on anything.
