Those of you who follow me on twitter at either @censorednewsnow or @InvestAltcoins know I'm big on Open Ledger, and it's two base assets: Obits and ICOO ... Here's a bit of the why ..

"19 April 2017 – (London, England) – The OpenLedger Decentralized Conglomerate (DC), the world's first blockchain powered conglomerate, is based on BitShares technology, and supports an ecosystem which includes the OpenLedger DEX and OpenLedger’s Crowdfunding (ITO) Services. 
As the OpenLedger DC is built on a permission based Bitshares Blockchain MIT Graphene Toolkit Technology, it has many advantages over Bitcoin technology. The BitShares blockchain platform is driven by a consensus mechanism and consists of a network of permission-less nodes networked together in a peer-to-peer (P2P) configuration.
Bitshares vs Bitcoin:

  • Bitshares (BTS) is an ecosystem where Bitcoin (BTC) is a currency.
  • BTS are faster than BTC to conduct transactions (BTS 3800 t/s vs BTC 1 per 10-15 minute)
  • BTS offer market pegged assets, yet BTC does not. The BTS assets in the form of stablecoins (SmartCoins) fight the main problem of cryptocurrency - volatility. For example, if you buy 1 bitUSD, the value remains the same regardless of BTC movement.
  • The BTS protocol is much secure than BTC protocol.

 OpenLedger DEX vs. Other Exchanges
  • OpenLedger is a Decentralized Exchange, meaning your accounts and funtionality are guarded by voted in witnesses and committee members, not one centralized one. Other Exchanges are constantly under hacker attack. Wallets are not secure and millions of dollars have been lost in the last few years (Mt.Gox, Bter, BitStamp, BitFinex, Cryptsy, and more). Your security is our priority.
  • Shortly, SmartCoins can be withdrawn directly to cash via the  soon to be released OpenLedger all-in-one debit card or via money transfer, with Ripple and Paypal options to be added.
  • Wiring money in the legacy banking system takes days. OpenLedger lets you send money anywhere in the world, within seconds.
  • No one can freeze, seize, hack or attack your wealth. You are always in control and your identity can never be stolen.
  • Soon, with the OpenLedger Debit Card, you can spend your money instantly, anywhere major debit cards are accepted. OpenLedger will handle the conversions for you.
  • Your money goes directly from you to its destination. No middlemen ever get control of your money.
  • Only those you authorize can see your accounts. Share control of accounts with friends, family, and business associates with complete accountability and flexibility never before available in legacy banking.
As highlighted by, the Bitshares technology platform was chosen as the fuel used by OpenLedger DC ‘because of the many features in its technology such as smart contracts, price-stable currencies, decentralized asset exchange, scalability, dynamic account permissions, recurring and scheduled payments, a referral rewards program for contributing to network growth, regulation-compatible user-issued assets, stakeholder-approved project funding, and transferable named accounts.

They also have a fairly active community and well-funded development. Many of these features could eventually be leveraged to build financial applications for the unbanked in emerging markets that are increasingly being connected to the internet and need a access to fast and cheap ways of sending and storing money on the internet.

The commitment of OpenLedger to Bitshares is further demonstrated by the recent nomination of Ronny Boesing, Founder and CEO of OpenLedger ApS, onto the Official Bitshares Committee. Inspired by the persistence, drive and passion behind the crypto-pioneers, especially Daniel Larimer, Co-Founder of BitShares and Steemit, Ronny was driven to learn all about cryptocurrency, eventually leading to the creation of the OpenLedger DC. "

If you'd like to join me:

I just doubled my position in $ICOO.

I like bitshares more and more as I use and start to understand, better, what I'm using.  And I'm increasingly impressed, likewise, with Open Ledger as a place to hold and trade digital assets.
