we give this guy far too much attention.
I am much more concerned about the process by which decisions are made by of the dev team than their intentions to see BitShares succeed. Their track record on the former is not so great whereas the later is outstanding. I think they need all the help they can get in making better marketing and communications decisions, but they have not followed through in that department, time & time again. Whatever happened to the PR review board for example? Or the huge incentives provided up front to certain parties while others who have demonstrated longstanding loyalty and value are passed over?
You can't deny the reality that the consulting revenue Cryptonomics produces could (especially in the short term while BTS marketcap is so low) be an incentive for them to shift development priorities away from BitShares.
The mainstream financial powers are fighting an economic war against crypto-currencies and it could be some time before BTS marketcap picks up. As we have seen no sharp rise in marketcap based on the 2.0 announcement, it may not come until the2.0 release has been tested and ready.
I only hope the pool of Cryptonomex investors have provided enough funding to see the dev team through these lean times without consulting distractions so 2.0 can remain the prime focus and see the light of day ASAP.
Fuzzy, if it were me I think I would have left newmine out of this thread entirely. Perhaps there is something to talk about regarding Cryptonomex's business plan and the BitShares roadmap, but I wouldn't have given any credit to newmine. He is all FUD. What he may provide in terms of stimulating anti-koolaid thinking he more than crushes with his inflammatory choice of words and volatile, negativity.
People that observe my posts can see they aren't always optimistic, but I'm always trying to get at the objective truth.
