      About BitShares

      BitShares(BTS) is a cryptocurrency and platform that combines the business model of a bank and an exchange. There are 3 key features that make BitShares stand out. The first one is its Distributed Exchange (DEX) that anyone can install and use. The second one is the ability to create User Issued Assets (UIA). Esers can lock away some of the BTS similar to create an asset that is similar to traditional stocks. Other users can trade this asset on the DEX, similar to how you can trade company stocks on a Stock Exchange. The last and most important is the SmartCoin functionality. Resembling the UIA, however there is no free floating value, instead these can be linked to real-world instruments (USD, EUR, CNY) so the price will mirror its real-world counterpart. BitShares was created by EOS Founder Dan Larimer.

      History of BitShares(BTS)

      BitShares like all other cryptocurrencies is based on the model of the first actual cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. However, before Bitcoin’s and BitShares’s time , cryptocurrencies were much more different, relying instead on a centralized power structure rather than the decentralized governance we see today. If it weren’t for the works of cryptographers such as David Chaum, Wei Dai, Nick Szabo and Hal Finney, who established some of the ground concepts for modern cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, Ethereum and BitShares would not exist today. However, the most important reason why BitShares was made possible is thanks to a person or a group of people under the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. He took the concepts that cryptographers before him established and managed to create an actual peer-to-peer electronic money system that couldn’t be counterfeited. If Satoshi Nakamoto didn’t create Bitcoin, it is hard to say if BitShares or most cryptocurrencies would exist today.

      BitShares is a cryptocurrency with the symbol BTS and it’s price ticker on our website is 0.00. Its current price is 0.00 and the total change over the past 24 hours is 0.00. BitShares boasts a volume of 1,684,337.73 in the past 24 across your selected exchanges.

      BitShares Characteristics

      Cryptocurrencies like BitShares use strong cryptographic protocols, or very complex computer code to secure transfers of information, in order to create a safe system that is notoriously difficult to crack. The programmer of digital currencies such as BitShares base these protocols on complex mathematic and computer engineering fundamentals, creating a structure that makes it impossible to replicate funds for BitShares and also hides the identities of the parties involved on any transaction on BitShares network , unless the participants freely disclose their information.

      BitShares Operates on a Blockchain

      BitShares, like most cryptocurrencies operates on a blockchain, a new and disruptive technology that offers benefits for storing, securing and transferring information that was not otherwise possible before its inception. The idea of blockchain was first discovered in 1991 by Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta, however it was not until an anonymous person or group under the alias of Satoshi Nakamoto that created the first functional blockchain (Bitcoin’s blockchain) and improved on the ideas of Haber and Scornetta to create a truly functional distributed ledger.

      You can imagine the blockchain that BitShares is based on as a giant, distributed database where every transaction’s information is recorded and then spread on a massive network of connected nodes or computers. The information for transaction of BitShares is then multiplied and stored on each individual node, so in order to change it you would have to access he majority of the BitShares’s nodes at the same time, which has so far proven to be impossible.

      The advantages that BitShares runs on a blockchain are that it is very cost effective to run, compared to other centralized resources, due to the cost of operating being split amongst all the network participants.

      No one can alter the defining characteristics that govern BitShares base, unless certain conditions are met and changes are implemented by the developer team or a network wide consensus is reached for the changes to be applied.

      One disadvantage of operating on a blockchain is that generally, transactions with BitShares are final, meaning that is very unlikely that a transaction can be rolled back if a mistake occurs. Be careful when transacting cryptocurrencies such as BitShares and make sure you double check all the details of the transaction before submitting it.

      BitShares also boasts a higher degree of safety, as the mechanisms of the blockchain are incredibly hard to crack

      BitShares Advantages

      Decentralized Point of Control

      BitShares (BTS) is defined by a decentralized governance system, which does not rely on a single point of control to manage transactions on the network in the same way a bank would. Because of this BitShares’s network features a distinct advantage that makes it very difficult to counterfeit or imitate. Another advantage of being decentralized is that any attacks on BitShares’s network will have to be in multiple places at the same, whereas a bank or any centralized system will have an host of servers in one place.

      Cost Efficient

      Generally speaking, auditing records is a time consuming and expensive process, whereas for BitShares which stores all its records on the blockchain, this can be done with minimal effort and in a much shorter time.

      Establishing a Digital Identity

      You can create your own identity on the BitShares blockchain, which can be though of as an account of sorts. Whenever you open an “account” on the BitShares blockchain, you will be given a private key, which lets you interact with the blockchain, and a public key, which let others identify and interact with you.

      Immutable

      Since all information that is transmitted on the BitShares blockchain is stored and secured on a wide network of computers or nodes, you can always be sure that the information presented is valid and has not been tampered with.

      BitShares Supply Details

      BitShares is distinguished from traditional fiat currencies due to way the supply works for most cryptocurrencies. It cannot be printed like governments do with fiat, due to the maximum supply being 3600570502 and this dictated by the base code that the BitShares network runs on. No more than 3600570502 will ever exist unless major changes to the code are applied. Another interesting fact about BitShares’s supply is there can be two other types of supply aside from the maximum supply. One is the total supply which indicates the amount of coins there are currently in existence. For BitShares the total supply is 2748040000. This is the sum of all BitShares units that have been mined or created since the network’s creation. . The other one is the circulating supply which for BitShares is 2748040000. This can be different that the total supply due factors such as funds being locked in escrow, coins being locked in masternodes.

      How to Store BitShares

      There are a few way to store your BitSharess , and they all involve a certain types of both physical and electronic wallets. Regardless of what kind of wallet you will use, in order to access your BitShares funds you will need to have a private key and a public key. With the private key, you can access your funds and send them to whoever you like, just as long as it is an address that BitShares is compatible with. Never ever disclose your BitShares private key or also called private address, as this will give anyone who has it full control over your wallet. The other type of key is the public key or address, which is used for other people to send BitShares to your wallet, and this one can be freely disclosed but it can be used to identify you if a name is ever associated with your public address.

      BitShares Paper Wallet

      The only physical and non-electronic way to store your BitShares is through a paper wallet, and this is possibly the safest way to protect your BitSharess. Simply write the private and public keys of your BitShares wallet on a sheet of paper, however you will need access to an electronic device should you choose to send or move your BitShares funds to another address. The risk here is losing or damaging the sheet of paper with your BitShares public key.

      BitShares Hardware Wallet

      You can store BitShares on a device like a Trezor or USB drive. You are able to make online transactions by plugging them into any any net enabled device to send BitShares to another address. Usually the hardware device that you store your BitShares on is offline which is a great security advantage. Please conduct proper research before purchasing any hardware wallet to store BitShares funds on as many are outdated or of poor quality.

      BitShares Desktop Wallet

It can be dangerous if any virus infects your PC or if any physical damage comes to it, which can result in the loss of all your BitShares funds.

      BitShares Online Wallet

      For online wallets, they operate in the cloud and your private and public keys for your BitShares funds are stored in the cloud as well. Very handy if you plan to access it from multiple devices but they also put your BitShares at great risk due to security breaches in the cloud storage which is not that unheard of.

      BitShares Mobile Wallet

It is a simple smartphone application where you set up an account and you can use it to send BitShares by scanning a QR code or even use it to pay in any shops that accept BitShares. However, your BitShares funds can be lost if your phone is damaged or if its security is breached.
