Author’s Note:  Are you the type to proclaim TL:DR to stuff?  If YES, this article explains the pros of Mastercoin, the new layer on top of bitcoin that can revolutionize, speculating, merchant business, and the world of finance overall.

You can among other things, place bets, create derivatives, track real-time measured events, issue stock, pay dividends on said stock, and sell things directly using the Master-coin protocol with no other required infrastructure.  Thanks for your time.

Mastercoin is NOT an ALT-COIN!  (There is a mastercoin alt-coin but it has NOTHING to do with what I am writing about today)
