BitShares (BTS) – cryptocurrency review


BitShares is a crypto-equity likely only to be understood by those who also understand derivatives. Users can trade currencies, commodities, and stock derivatives via shorts and options. BitShares has an online trading platform which it desribes as being a ‘decentralised exchange’.

Controversey surrounding BitShares erupted in September 2017 when the major exchange, Bittrex decided to delist Bitshares. Whilst no reason was officially provided, speculation arose suggesting it was related to the size of RAM required to run a BitShares node. Prices plummeted immediately as people dumped BitShares fearing they would be left with coins they wouldn’t be able to trade.

The community responded though and rallied around BitShares – ironically enough with many reminders that BitShares was in itself, a decentralised exchange, and one that many users actually prefer to Bittrex (the only wish being that BitShares listed more coins!).

For the time being, this leaves BitShares in a bit of a tough spot in terms of mass-market adoption. For people just entering the world of cryptocurrency, the influence of exchanges like Bittrex, Kraken and Poloniex is strong. And if they don’t list a coin, it can influence people’s appreciation of the coin. But BitShares is hanging in there; it’s success likely hanging on how well it ushers users into the trading aspects of cryptocurrency and how broadly its exchange supports the inclusion of new altcoins.
