whalesharesPosted for Everyone to comment on, 3 years ago4 min read


It's the moment we've all been waiting for...

We are happy to announce the Official Opening of the Whaleshares.io and Bitsharestalk.io platforms.

It's been 6 months in the making and our development team has worked tirelessly to build and launch a blockchain that embodies the true spirit of social sharing. The goal was to learn from the missteps and mistakes of our predecessor and create a system that REWARDS long-term participation and social interactions while REMOVING harmful reward pool robbing incentives. We believe we have achieved this goal, delivered on-time as scheduled.

This is just the beginning...

Over the next couple of months, the Whaleshares development team will continue roll out several major updates that will revolutionize the way cryptocurrency-based content platforms operate and change the way you think of social media websites forever. After that, it's up to you, the users, to decide the future of the Whaleshares platform.

The long-term intent of Whaleshares is to establish itself as a Decentralized Autonomous Cooperative (DAC) where users of all sizes may transparently share and contribute value to their networks of trusted friends and have a voice in the future evolution of the platform itself. We will need individuals to step up and help form the groups that oversee the governance, arbitration, and standards that carry the project forward.

Furthermore, members will be encouraged to grow their WHALESTAKE which will allow them to create and leverage their own Whaleshares-backed tokens (WhaleTokens) with cross-chain technology to support communities of common interests with transparent oversight and rewards for taking part in initiatives, project development and other sponsored events.

~ Welcome to Whaleshares!

Whaleshares Account Creation is Open to EVERYONE!

To help expedite the early account creation process, we have opened up account creations to everyone, even if you did not have a Bitshares account that qualified for the sharedrop snapshot on August 1st.

The process is the same for creating a new account with a claim, or just creating a new account by itself. The only difference is which online form you use.

If you need to claim your sharedrop:

  1. Make sure you have 1 WHALESHARE token in your Bitshares Account Wallet.
  2. Make sure you have at least 0.2 BTS in your Bitshares Account Wallet. (Fee)
  3. Go to https://wls.services
  4. Follow the instructions provided in the Official Sharedrop Announcement.

If you are not claiming and just want to create an account:

  1. Make sure you have 10 WHALESHARE token in your Bitshares Account Wallet.
  2. Make sure you have at least 0.2 BTS in your Bitshares Account Wallet. (Fee)
  3. Go to https://newacc.wls.services
  4. Follow the instructions provided in the Official Sharedrop Announcement.
    The process is the same as 'claiming with a new account'.

馃挕 If you don't have WHALESHARE tokens, you can buy one on the DEX with BTS.


Sharedrop Claim Period Ends

Saturday, September 15, 2018
The time to claim your sharedrop ends and no claims will be accepted after this date. You will need 1 WHALESHARE token to claim your sharedrop. Information and instructions can be found in the Official Sharedrop Announcement.

Dev Team Sharedrop Distribution PowerUp

Saturday, September 15, 2018
The Whaleshares Sharedrop included a 10% drop to members of the project development team. Instead of keeping 100% of the sharedrop vested for themselves, it was unanimously voted to split each member's drop into 50% vested WHALESTAKE and 50% liquid WLS to allow each team member the opportunity to share a portion of their sharedrop (as vested WHALESTAKE) with other people on the platform. This agreement requires all of this sharedropped liquid WLS to be powered-up into WHALESTAKE before the Sharedrop Claim Period ends on September 15, 2018. At that time only the DevFund reserve pool and a gateway test account will hold any liquid WLS. All end-user accounts will be fully vested.

Power Down Activated

Monday, October 1, 2018
The Power Down function will be activated allowing users to convert vested "WHALESTAKE" into liquid WLS that can be transferred to the Bitshares DEX. At this time @RuDEX has announced that their Gateway is complete and will be opened at this time to transfer WLS in/out of Whaleshares to the DEX.
