I think Peertracks and Cob lack an innovative mindset and that's why they're being so hush hush about how exactly it will work. I think they have an outdated business model and I hope to show why in the coming months. Either way...may the best man win.
I would be interested to see in what you come up with when you are ready, as i am sure others would as well.
I think from what we know of peertracks it could turn out to be a good thing, but i agree with you on the transparency front. The last newsletter with the crap about oh google and apple will copy us just made me roll my eyes. Nobody realizes just how slow big companies, even innovative ones, move. Unless they have been planning something similar for a very long time it wont be coming out anytime soon. I also cant see them getting into uncharted territory with cryptocurrency and concepts such as token buy backs that skirt selling stakes in a individual or company type laws without startups testing the waters and marketplace first.
