Datasecurity has gone the route I believed, from the very beginning, was the correct path. In my mind he is working on this and taking it over(along with the work and risk) so it is smart for our community to give him an overage of the funds he originally estimated...to ensure the project's success. Eventually, if we have accomplished this, he will be very well off for his work and help...and we will be too. So it only makes sense that we give him what he needs.
With that said, I have heard people complain in the past about so many delegates. It was for this reason made a statement awhile back that we could have multisig account access for those involved in ensuring that data has the funding necessary to ensure success (far moreso than any other pool out there).
Though I trust data personally I have to recognize that many people have been against the proposal from the very beginning....let alone adding 5-6 more delegates to the mix. So I am placing a poll in here to see where we stand as a community.
Please feel free to add comments. I am trying to be as fair as possible here, but decisions aren't always cut and dry.
(P.S. this dynamic with having multisig for a large amount of funds to ensure control is more decentralized in the early phases (while it is subsidized) will apply to the new version of bitshares..with "workers" and project funding to separate the current duties/power of delegates)
