A revolution in banking
It’s all about digital… the BitShares Blockchain is setting new standards for all kind of financial services. Based on blockchain technology, the platform was developed for the financial industry, and it is open to everyone.
It allows for frictionless and lightning fast global payments with at least 3,300 transactions per second. Programmable digital assets can be traded freely and without counterparty risk. It is easy to handle and top secure.
Unlike all other financial platforms that exchange debt in form of “I owe you” IOU, the BitShares Blockchain allows for exchanging collateralized digital assets or full money: SmartCoins.
The BitShares ecosystem issues and provides SmartCoins with BTS (bitshares) being the native currency. Deposited as collateral, BTS backs stable cryptocurrencies and other financial products. Thus SmartCoin tokens like bitUSD, bitCNY or bitGold are 200% BTS backed. They can freely be exchanged and the blockchain enforces that 100% of the collateral value can be redeemed at any time.
The BTS backed coins redefine money and are in strong contrast to today’s fractional reserve banking and debt economy. All in all, BitShares is a fully-fledged exchange and financial ecosystem with collateralized tokens tied to real-life assets.
Discover new business models using the BitShares Blockchain
There are endless possibilities of using the BitShares platform for your application and services. Smart contracts are used to create Smartcoins like BitUSD, BitCNY or BitAAPL. Enforced by the blockchain, they are tied to the value of real-life underlyings like currencies, commodities or derivates of all kind, thus enabling financial institutions to build new blockchain based payment systems with stable assets. There is no need to sell assets quickly only to avoid a volatile performance of the crypto currency which would be typical for first-generation crypto currencies.
With all of that, there are sheer endless ways of using BitShares for financial applications and services with considerably low fees and no counterparty risk incurred.
