Becarefule with dubious media headline. There is a comment at the bottom of the article from the Head of product at uphold refuting the headline and clarifying the changes at the company...I a member of the platform and the bitcoin functionalities are the same as before.
This project is awesome Imagine in the future an online business that accepts startcoins buying ads from StartPeeps to attract thet startpeeps community of startcoin holders....or being able to advertise your startjoin projects directly through startpeeps.
We need to design and crowdfund a start flag that Start citizens and patriots can pledge allegiance to. #StartRepublic
My understanding is that startcoin would still be purchased but the conversion would happen transparently in this platform removing the pain from a alt or novice user having to go through bittrex or any other platform to convert unless they want to...
If I can still keep my startcoin on this platfrom to earn weekly dividends (only with startcoins), I am rewarded startcoins for my pledges with other coins and the ecosystem provides additionnal alternatives to spend my startcoin why not?
if all cryptocurrency coming in is converted to $start to fund projects and startcoin is what the users are rewarded with at the end based on their karma score and participation on the site, the concept of the platform really stays the same.
Currently If a user with bitcoin or any other alts wants to participate on this platform he will still need to convert his coins to $start one way or another. So why not take the pain from the user and integrate shapeshit on this platform?
Hey Karl I do share your vision of bringing long-term structural and operational changes that will solidify the value proposition of the startjoin platform instead of short-term unsustainable hype attempts to drive the price up.
