A Peershare could be defined as a blockchain network that is a fork of the source code template contained in the Peershares code repository. However, this definition would exclude B&C Exchange, which clearly seems like a Peershare to me. B&C Exchange was not created as a fork of the Peershare repository. Instead, it was a fork of Nu. It is possible to think of Peershares in an even broader sense, as a blockchain network employing custodial grants and motions, even if the code base is not forked from other Peershares. Under this definition, DASH is a Peershare, following Nu’s example of using custodial grants to fund development of the network.
The Peershares template was a passion for Jordan Lee, not an attempt to make money. There is no way to make money from developing the template itself. Money can only be made from a specific implementation of a Peershare, like Nu or B&C Exchange. Jordan Lee was moved to provide a way for others to create equity based decentralized organizations that could implement a diverse field of applications.
I am motivated by more practical matters. It is hard enough to make Nu and B&C Exchange commercial successes without concerning myself with providing an organizational structure for use by others. That could only serve as a distraction from the important work I do. And yet, today, the best way to implement a Peershare would be to fork the code repository of either Nu or B&C Exchange. So by furthering the development of Nu and B&C Exchange, I am carrying on the work of Peershares development in a way that can readily be used by another organization for an application other than stable currency or exchange.
Peershares development lives on in the form of Nu development, B&C Exchange development, and perhaps even DASH development. The development of all three networks is currently accelerating.
