Rationalization #2. I'm thinking 4-dimensionally.
I'm here to make you feel better. Think of it this way:
Finding 1 ProtoShare a day might not seem like much right now, but for investors with vision its not hard to imagine that single lousy ProtoShare equalling a tenth of a bitcoin in a few months. Maybe half a bitcoin in a year. Counting the value of the DACs it spawns that one ProtoShare could accumulate a whole bitcoin's worth of wealth in the foreseeable future.
Would you be happy finding a new bitcoin in your wallet once a day? Seize your poor little ProtoCoin now and take it back to the future. That's where we're all headed anyway, at the rate of one day per day.
I don't mourn the departure those who are in this to turn a quick profit and move on to the next altcoin. The people who matter to me are the investors who see the vision and are in this with us for the long haul. They are the ones who will take the time to master DAC-based trading and use their shares to build more wealth. They will ultimately prevail.
Patience is a virtue. I expect to see the virtuous rewarded.
Now get back out there on the battlefield and mine another one for the Gipper!
