We have a user base (roughly 30,000 to 60,000 accounts based on bitsharesblocks data, 30k in the qt and 30k on bter/btc38/etc dont quote me on this and dont go to much into detail about this part its the useless part)
The part that matter is this (A call to arms):
Our network effect is not growing rapidly it user accounts are about 300 - 600 a month on the qt. We need the network effect to expand, we need a general advertising campaign BARING the fact that we do not have a blockchain.info type site. We need the snowball effect to occur. Once this happens we will be able to spearhead Ethereum, because frankly, our network effect may be thwarted if we do not act and act quickly.
I understand that 1.0.0 is coming out in Feb 2015 but means only 1 month before Ethereum is planning to come out. How do we gain traction if we have only 1 month before our biggest and our Goliath competitor comes out.
We need traction now! As a person once said "Let a hundred flowers blossom" we need 100 paid delegates and now. It doesnt matter if they are not so skilled or so good we have the power to vote them out if they are not good. But we need 100 paid 100% delegates who are screaming at the roof tops "Hey over there come join the revolution, we are going to have all the money in the world, come over here!"
