BitShares ME is what we call "low hanging fruit." It is easy to spin off when we get to this point in the testing of BitShares X and can be done in parallel with the testing - and is, in fact, a test of key technologies that have a by-product use.
Since our commitment is to build value for the industry this is another way to incrementally deliver that value.
Delivering that value in such a way that elevates the value of PTS and AGS also increases the resources necessary to add more functionality and therefore more value to everybody's investments.
At the same time, we are mitigating risk by testing BitShares X incrementally and minimizing the likelihood of ever needing a reset.
Every move we make is calculated to maximize the best results for everybody. There are many factors to be considered.
