I would to announce that I am buying my first BitShares today! I have decided I am no longer investing in cryptocurrencies that I don't have uses for, since these cryptos are coming out that I have real uses for. I would like to use BitShares to obtain some WhaleShares to use on this platform! How cool! Gonna take a shower and ease into my morning and buy me some BITSHARES!

Nice work man! Congrats

I really like how you can create your own assets through bitshares. Might invest in some bitshare tokens and look more into creating assets. Thanks for the post!

Might also be worth checking out the LTM (life time membership) feature as well depending on the asset name that you are looking to register.

Basically you can get 80% discount on all fees, ability to register premium names and you can make use of the referal program (speaking of which if you use my banner in the post to register then i will rebate you 10% of the cost of the LTM)

I will look into that. And if I register I will definitely use your banner! I like discounts! :)
