I've heard you are very good marketer in this way. .. perhaps once marketing begins you'll try to get involved again
Carpet, the things that frustrates me most is that Dan has invented a brilliant product with a lot of room to innovate and monetize; however, Invictus is short a chief marketing officer and a chief software architect. They keep saying hey this is when the vision gets realized and then a benchmark is missed, a brand is diluted or changed, or great partnerships are never established.
Counterparty's work with Overstock is a great example. The CEO is philosophically more with Bitshares than any other venture in the space and the platform is far better to deploy Medici than CP. Vennd.io is another platform that should be in the Bitshares ecosystem.
I do understand that people are working hard and I do admire toast, Stan and Bo Shen for their efforts. I've been there and it's tough as hell building something like this. You feel like you're moving in slow mo when the world is racing past you. Also every mistake becomes a rally point where successes are often overlooked or trivialized. This is why it's essentially that you recruit a great team and hold them to strict metrics. Furthermore as an open sourced project, you need to account for the community's contributions, which is why I mentioned Pieter in the prior post. ZMQ is a very well run OSP.
