What Are BitShares?

00:00 Imagine a company, this company has a lot of expenses.
00:03 But what if you could remove those expenses and give the money saved to the shareholders as profit.
00:08 Imagine you could be one of these shareholders and you could trade your shares with anyone as easy as sending email but without any middlemen, brokers or commissions, well, now you can with bitshares.
00:23 Bitshares, our shares of digital companies that are traded directly from person to person over the internet.
00:30 Digital companies exist entirely in software that runs on the computers of the customers that use them.
00:35 Bitcoin was the first digital company that calls it shares coins, and promoted their use as a form of money.
00:42 Bitshares goes beyond Bitcoin to offer many new and more profitable companies in industries like banking, stock exchanges, auctions, music, voting, lotteries, insurance and many more.
00:55 Bitshares does for business, what bitcoin is doing for money.

An introduction to Bitshares

00:00 Bitcoin did for money, what I believe bitshares will do for business.
00:12 In the very near future we will see the status quo of business operations transformed into a decentralized and trustless environment, that functions more efficiently and fairly than any of the world's preceding models.
00:25 Hi, my name is Max wright, a cryptocurrency author, investor and evangelist.
00:30 I created this series to give you a base level understanding of how this new system will function and how you can make it work for you, welcome to bitshares 101.
00:38 Chapter 1, introduction, Satoshi Nakamoto, the anonymous inventor of Bitcoin, created a piece of technology that many, including myself, view as the most important invention since the internet.
00:51 That crucial piece of technology is called the blockchain.
00:55 Bitcoin is built on blockchain technology.
00:57 The blockchain created a method to arrive at a reliable consensus in a decentralized way.
01:01 It was the first technology to ever accomplish this feat.
01:06 Before the creation of the blockchain, it was necessary to use third parties like VISA, PayPal or banks to record payment between parties.
01:13 Both parties to the transaction agree that the records kept by the third party should be considered evidence of payment.
01:19 In other words, there was a consensus that a payment took place because the third party said so.
01:26 Bitcoin allows us to bypass these third parties and create a far more efficient method of consensus.
01:31 The potential for this technology extends far beyond its use in monetary transactions.
01:38 Just like the blockchain began a revolution in payments through Bitcoin, I believe the blockchain is about to begin a revolution in many other areas as well.
01:47 For example if I sell my Amazon stock to a buyer, right now we rely on the stock exchange like Nasdaq to record that transaction.
01:54 But in the very near future, we could rely on the blockchain to do that.
01:59 If I purchase a piece of real estate from someone, the sale is recorded at some government office, but we could rely on the blockchain to record that transaction.
02:07 If I buy the domain, currently that purchase is recorded at the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and numbers, but it could be recorded on the blockchain.
02:17 If we enter into a contract, we might record that on paper and each keep a copy, instead it can be recorded on the blockchain.
02:26 These are just a few examples of existing industries that can be revolutionized with blockchain technology.
02:31 However because of the efficiencies of blockchain technology, brand-new industries are suddenly possible too.
02:37 For example let's say that I'm an author and I want to write a book.
02:41 I have to take a year off work to write that book and I need the money to do that.
02:47 I could pre-cell ownership rights in that book via a crowd sale recorded on the blockchain.
02:52 And then all of my share holders could receive revenues from the sale of that book once it is published.
02:58 The terms of their shares can all be recorded automatically and executed on the blockchain.
03:03 Because of the laws regulations and costs associated with an IPO on the Nasdaq, it is too inefficient to justify issuing traditional stocks on a book that I was going to write.
03:14 But with blockchain technology, this suddenly becomes possible.
03:17 It's similar to crowdsourcing but with greater protection and transparency for the investors.
03:21 In this book, we're going to examine this exciting new world and find out where the most potential lies.
03:27 In my opinion, at the center of all of this potential, is bitshares.
03:32 Bitshares is a powerful, open source business engine built on blockchain technology.
03:37 The developers of bitshares have made a number of innovations to the blockchain technology as used by Bitcoin.
03:43 These innovations solve many of the problems that blockchain based enterprises will face when entering many of the aforementioned industries.
03:50 As a result of these innovations, I think the next few years will see blockchain technology massively disrupt several new industries.
03:59 But surprisingly, that is not the most exciting thing about bitshares, in fact that's not even what this series about.
04:06 I do go into those points in the bonus chapter at the end, but this series is about another even bigger potential.
04:10 All of these new industry disruptors built on blockchain technology will need to be traded somewhere.
04:17 Just like Apple, Amazon stocks are traded on the Nasdaq.
04:20 So the bitshares team went ahead and built a blockchain based trading floor to be the Nasdaq for all future blockchain based solutions.
04:29 As you will learn in the remainder of this series, this decentralized trading floor has the potential to radically transform a wide range of industries, from the 700 trillion dollar derivatives market to how we manage loyalty programs like frequent flyer miles.
04:44 The efficiencies that bitshares blockchain can bring to the world in the next decade are mind-blowing.
04:50 This series is an exploration of bitshares potential.
04:53 It is entirely possible that bitshares could exploded value over the next few years just as Bitcoin did before.
05:00 It is this possibility that has kept me awake for many months researching.
05:04 I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I have.
05:06 I really hope you enjoyed this video in the bitshares 101 series.
