You are right. Everything that is US based is under the gun. The government in general is shooting itself in the foot. Sanctions on Russia for example, "You can't use our dollar for x or xx" and Russia changes to the petro-yuan or barters for oil or missiles. Nice job US. Bitshares; It is lower volume but the same as others. I bought up all the 0.14 cent bts I could at the lows and it has recently doubled in value. Bitshares is on a public ledger like Steem, so it's all easy to see. decentralized like Steemit. Unlikely that a government ban will impact Bitshares.
