First and foremost, BitShares claims to be a more efficient way to secure the Blockchain and carry out transactions while providing a profit for the various players in the process. BitShares claims to deliver these services (which Bitcoin provides through "mining") at only a fraction of its traditional cost, without taking the risk of consolidating mining clusters and the costs associated with decentralization.

BitShares' plan is to replace the current, traditional "proof-of-work" with a pure form of "proof-of-stake". To see the pure form of a "proof of stake" chain in action look at Nxt. The BitShares blockchain will inherit several improvements made in Nxt's but using a relatively different approach. First, instead of lending a cryptocurrency and sharing the block rewards as in Nxt, BitShares will use a delegated proof of stake (DPoS) system. BitShares users will vote to choose which delegates will take on this task. Another difference between BitShares and Nxt is the way they will handle the large volume of movements and users. Nxt introduces transparent forging i.e. users will know in advance which nodes will be used for next transactions in the blockchain. They will send their transactions directly to be authorized by them to save time and speed up the network. On the contrary, in the BitShares system, these nodes will be known much further, thanks to the delegate system.
The prices fluctuate based on local demand and supply.
