The Bitshares Coin

The Bitshares Coin

It obvious when you meet people, and you ask them a question like

Hey, did you know anything about Crypto currency? You get a reply like

I know much about Bitcoin and Ethereum very well. Or you get reply like

I have made much on Bitcoin this year, but I noticed my Bitcoin value falls and rises in my blockchain or coin base wallet.

When I listen this kind of replies, I put on a new kind of look like that of a boy in the image below.

What am I trying to point out here?

Many people are ignorant about the real crypto market, but they just jump into the crypto market and invest there without even knowing whether it is the right time to go in or not.

Many people also feel Bitcoin is the only crypto currency in the digital market while some are able to seduce with their little knowledge that there is also another coin called Ether. LOL.

Well, it high time you move out of the mediocrity and ignorance and move into the real world of crypto currency and digital market. It is time you know more than Bitcoin and Ether and be recognized with the new type of crypto currencies,

In this article, I will be making some clarity about crypto currency known to you, and I will also talk about

a new crypto currency which has already been around for a good amount of time.

What is Crypto Currency?

According to Wikipedia, A cryptocurrency (or crypto currency) is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange using cryptography to secure the transactions and to control the creation of additional units of the currency. Cryptocurrencies are classified as a subset of digital currencies and are also classified as a subset of alternative currencies.

There are over 100 crypto currencies in the blockchain network and crypto market, some of this currency grow and fall in value with time in the crypto market. To know more about the list of coin available worldwide you can go to the crypto market place like www.poloniex.com , www.c-cex.com, and www.yobit.net , This is list of some of the trustiest and tested crypto currency markets

From the image above you will able to clarify that there are different kind of coins on the crypto market but did these coins have their owned logo, unlike Bitcoin.

Well the answer to the question is yes, let make reference to the picture to see logo of some crypto currencies in the crypto market…

Right now I will be introducing a next rated coin, which has existed for good amount of time in the crypto market, but is like I’m making tooo much emphasis, what exactly is this coin and does the coin works?

The name of the coin is BITSHARES

What is BitShares?

Well, I can specifically what bit share really mean because it has a lot of section and I contribute to my aspect of the globe.

How do I mean? I mean bitshare can be categorized as software, Network, Ledger, Company, Exchange, Bank, Currency, Community, Country and in fact the Globe.

I will be breaking this listed category from the least to biggest about Bitshare

From the image below you will deduce that the picture illustrate a tyical coin market I illustrated in the earlier part of this aricle but coming out in another form, it showing the market exchange value of bitshares against Bitcoin, and the graph illustrate how the coin rise and fall in te market.

Bаnkѕ еаrn іnсоmе bу сhаrgіng interest to thе borrowers аnd аttrасt саріtаl bу рауіng іntеrеѕt tо dероѕіtоrѕ. BіtShаrеѕ creates dоllаr dеnоmіnаtеd dеbt соllаtеrаlіzеd bу BTS. Thіѕ dоllаr dеnоmіnаtеd dеbt іѕ a BіtAѕѕеt knоwn as BіtUSD. BіtShаrеѕ ѕuрроrtѕ аnу numbеr оf BіtAѕѕеtѕ іnсludіng BіtGоld, BіtSіlvеr, BіtOіl, еtс.
