The cost of BitShares is compared to Bitcoin, and transactions are confirmed on average in 5 seconds. BitShares has its own token and is called Bitshares (BTS). If we treat it simply as a currency, it is as volatile as the other currencies of the first generation, like Bitcoin. However, if you look at it as a share in the independent company BitShares, it turns out that the value of BTS is provided by the products and services of the company. Thus, BTS is an excellent form of providing stable smart currency derivatives and other financial products.
