Recently there was some buzz going around by a forum user named bobrocket. Up until now we didn’t really look into this coin, but now that we’ve done some research, we feel that it has some potential.
Bitshares (Has been around since 2014)
[share in the Decentralized Exchange]
Bitshares is an experiment in creating decentralized price-tracking crypto using natural market incentives, and building a crypto-asset ecosystem around that.”
The trading experience is comparable to normal cryptocurrency exchanges except all the books are on the blockchain so you don’t have to worry about exchange insolvency. You get yield on assets with high short demand like bitUSD or bitSILVER offering.
There is a powerful user-issued asset system, which flexible enough to allow traditional centralized companies can legally issue their stock, among a lot of other applications.
You don’t have leveraged trading unless you want to leverage long BTS by shorting a BitAsset.
There are bridges to get from BTC to bitBTC to get in and out cheaply for small quantities, but the cheapest way to get a bunch of any bitAsset is still to go directly through BTS.
The fees are a fixed 0.1 BTS per transaction, or 2 times that if you are paying in a market-pegged asset with a price feed (so you can have just a bitUSD vs bitBTC balance and still pay transaction fees).
This is not proof of stake like most coins these days. But users can actually vote by delegated proof of stake!
You can build smartcoins upon the BTS blockchain.

Roadmap: The roadmap is unofficial since they use delegated proof of stake so if a vote doesn’t pass well too bad

They have a very nice GUI that you can easily download from (The wallet is also on the page): https://bitshares.org/download/

Some more tips for you all not to miss out on this. I suggest you to just put a small amount in it and see where 2018 will bring us.
Just got released few days ago.
2018 will definitely be a good year for this because of the demand for a decentralized exchanges as more smartcoins get added I am almost positive the price of BTS will rise.
