What is BitShares (BTS)?

A decentralized platform called BitShares is frequently used to safely trade cryptocurrencies without the involvement of middlemen. It was created to offer a more effective worldwide payment network.

It was first introduced in July 2014 under the name ProtoShares (PTS), but less than a year later it changed its name to BitShares (BTS). The BitShares platform is run by a decentralized autonomous company (DAC), which gives BTS token holders control over the network's development and the features that will be added in the future. 

The BitShares (BTS) token, a native utility token that can be used for many things, including the production of "BitAssets," or smartcoins that may represent nearly anything, such as reward points, collateralized fiat-pegged tokens and IOUs. It utilizes Graphene, an open-source blockchain implementation, which can handle up to 100,000 transactions per second (TPS), which is quicker than both MasterCard and VISA put together.

One of the few blockchain platforms, BitShares, has done away with addresses entirely. Instead, it distinguishes people through simple memos, giving it one of the most approachable crypto sites. It is also designed around a well-known referral program that shares upgrade costs between referrers and the BitShares network to encourage network expansion. 

As of August 2022, BitShares is in the process of a relaunch, and will be going through several major changes throughout going forward.


Software expert Daniel Larimer is also a co-founder of several other well-known blockchain businesses, such as EOS.IO, Block.one, and Steemit. Larimer is well-known and largely recognized as one of the industry's most innovative leaders. 

Entrepreneur and mathematician Charles Hoskinson is one of the original eight Ethereum co-founders and the second-most successful blockchain platform (behind Bitcoin). Hoskinson is currently the CEO of Input Output HK (IOHK), the research and development firm that created the Cardano cryptocurrency (ADA). 

Backed by more than 60 long-term collaborators, representing a variety of academic specialties, from highly qualified developers and systems administrators to economists and lawyers.
