The pitch from bitshares.org:
- Bitshares.org is an organization of businesses, decentralized companies, and individuals with a common interest in finding free market solutions.
- At bitshares.org we are bringing together a community of next generation entrepreneurs, investors, and developers to build an economic revolution as significant as the Industrial Revolution and the Information Age.
- Bitshares is about finding decentralized solutions to centralized problems through open source technologies.
- BitShares builds the technology that powers decentralized autonomous companies (DACs).
- Whether music, inventions, news articles, insurance, or currency speculation, there will be multiple opportunities for people to earn by sharing information.
- It can harness the combined power of all humanity to coordinate the discovery and aggregation of real-time knowledge, previously unobtainable.
- Consensus technology has the power to do for economics what the internet did for information.
- The long term benefit of DACs is the creation of millions of information-based jobs that allow those who contribute what they know to the market to make money.
