This is a small survey of people in the BitShares ecosystem. It goes to show some of the sentiment and trust around various portals into the system.

I think these survey results generally reflect community sentiment. BitShares.org is the favorite portal into the BitShares Ecosystem. OpenLedger was a leading portal for a long time, then they suffered a hack over the summer. This hurt their reputation. They did a lot of work to reverse transfers and restore coins, but damage was done. CryptoBridge is only about 1.5 years old and it has grown fast with a large quantity of low value coins. RuDex, has focused on the Russian Market and been faithfully serving it. There is not a huge number of Russians on the platform yet, there has been a lot of Chinese interest. GDex, is based in Germany serving the European market. The other portals I am not as familiar with, and looking at the number of people who rated them a 5 (unknown) others are not as well. Portals can come and go and there are security concerns with them so it is good to know community trust.

Since some of these portals are geographically based here are some interesting stats.

This just just gives us a little data about where people are coming from.

This is still a trial project, and it has been interesting to see how much community interest there is. We got 32 responses and only 13 joined the telegram channel so far.

There does seem to be a bit of reluctance in placing too much attention on what other people think. I understand. This is all a trial effort. Perception management in crypto is complicated. There are very elaborate marketing efforts and beautiful marketing campaigns and sometimes very little content and delivery behind them. It does bring up the question, is it all worth the effort?

Let me know what you think...

Please take the next survey...


Next time we can look at the popularity of the top crypto coins...
