๐Ÿš€ Whaleshares.io and BitsharesTalk.io Main Launch!

6 months ago


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'.

๐Ÿ’ก 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.

The door is always open,
come join us anytime!

Stay tuned for official announcements in the coming days and weeks.

Just a reminder...


Great to hear this announcements. I am sure many people now are waiting to do some powering down. =) so they could sell some of those WLS.


Well they will have to wait a while, :-) Power Down does not activate until October 1st and the process will be much more gradual than other platforms.


Yes, @powerpics , patience is a virtue. But I think the value of WLS will continue to rise but it will increase more when power down activates since we will be seeing more trading in the process.

An exciting day for sure!

I have our community of independent musicians ready to join and will be helping with that from today thanks to @bushkill & @black-man who have kindly offered to send me the Whalesahres to get them onboard.

The engines were ticking over and now we are ready for lift off!

Hi there, congrats on your launch! I decided to make an account here to see what it's all about. I'm wondering how to acquire more WLS, is there an internal market like Steem has, or some way to convert Bitshares WHALESHARE tokens to WLS?


WLS is not available for trading until after October 1st when the power down features is activated. Then it will trade on the Bitshares DEX using the RuDEX gateway.

Currently you earn more WLS (as WHALESTAKE) by posting quality content that others want to reward and share.


Cool-Hope whaleshares get listed on Openledger or Cryptobridge as well. They are on of the most easiest to use Bitshares based exchanges


Okay, understood, thanks for the reply! Probably a good idea to have a gradual ramp up before trading starts.

So how does WLS currently available on Bitshares exchange for purchase at nearly 1:1 with BTS.....how will WLS be treated after Oct. 1?

Can the WLS token be used to "powerup" and then convert to Whalestake?

Any thoughts would be appreciated!!


RuDEX will have our main gateway to transfer WLS in/out of Whaleshares to the DEX as (RUDEX.WLS). They will open the gateway after October 1st.

The classic "WHALESHARE" token has nothing to do with this platform. It is still a vote token for steemit.

Here we go buddies๐Ÿ˜€ So thankful to be a part of this. Looking forward to what we can build together. Good luck to everyone.


Man, what's happen? Why your witness node is off? I can help you, pm me t.me/kwaskoff


There was a mistake in the keys, we are assuming๐Ÿ˜‚ Working on correcting it now.


We are back online. Thank you for the concern


This is very exciting. Long live WhaleShares!


Thank you. We are equally as excited! We are striving to build our community,but most importantly, an overall awareness of the Whaleshares platform as a whole. Please consider us as a vote for YOUR witness! We appreciate you!

Happppppy, this is the beginning of a new era, thanks and shout out to the dev team.

I'm glad that I didn't miss this great opportunity. Can you explain more about the benefits of posting content to the whaleshares community compared to Steemit.com ?


You can find a list of the s changes we have made so far that set Whaleshares.io apart from it's predecessor here:

There is a lot more on the way.

The time has come, the wave of new members has begun.

Really great to join the whaleshare community after waiting for a long person of time. And am really to read the announcement and getting ready to work by building up the whaleshare community through promoting and community, and upholding the benefit of whaleshare to others and the community at large.

Congrats Whaleshares Team! We look forward to helping this community be the best it can be.

@CSXCommunity - Your Whaleshares.io Witness - How can we help you succeed?

Great announcement. This is just the beginning of something great

Guys if someone needs WHALESHARES for registration (yours or your friends) you can contact me, I'm giving away 1000 WLS, here's my post about that: https://whaleshares.io/welcomepost/@sxiii/hi-everybody-welcome-post-list-of-steem-forks-whaleshares-free-giveaway


How will WLS token be handled after Oct. ? Will it just fall to wayside or can it be used to powerup and then be converted to WhaleStake?


Please do not confuse WLS with the classic "WHALESHARE" tokens. They are not the same and not interchangeable.
