Common wisdom among investors is to invest in people, not ideas or products. I first noticed a post FreeTrade made where he evaluated various coins for their investment potential. I was, and still am, new to cryptocurrency and that post helped me a lot. It validated a number of things I had already noticed and helped me form a standard for evaluation.
Then I read the mock interview he did with himself where he discussed the MMC 1.0 debacle. I was deeply impressed, not just by the way he handled things when it went to hell, but even by the mistake he made that set up the failure. His error was in giving too much trust to his fellow human beings. Trusting people are also trustworthy people. I knew MMC wasn't a pump-and-dump, a scam artist would never have made that mistake. I also really liked his honesty and humor; and the fact that he can communicate clearly, counts for a lot.
My mining hardware isn't very impressive, but I do have something else I can invest.
I'm holding these for "ransom" at 8,000 MMC and 12,000 MMC respectively.
I've tried dealing with the current CEO but, unsurprisingly as he is 20 years old, the title has gone to his head and he has no concept of leadership. And, perhaps the CMO has yet to discover the new forum, but I haven't heard a single word from him. I find that troubling.
I really want to continue making art for this coin, but I am worried that I'm just wasting my time. I'm concerned Memory Coin may be in it's death throws.
I will slash the asking price for my art by 70% if FreeTrade becomes the CEO again.
I'm working with a 3D art program, Blender. It is capable of creating animations and that is one of my goals for promoting the coin. I'm also a musician, so I can handle the audio side of it as well. I have some really cool ideas for this, but the work to execute them isn't trivial. I need motivation, i.e. I need to get paid and paid well. Not jacked around by some wannabe puppetmaster.
I don't begrudge FreeTrade a vacation. I'm sure he has earned it. Will he return as CEO? Does he want to? Is the community too dominated by toxic elements to allow him?
