I am going to remove my candidacy. Due to a variety of factors I will not go into here, I think this better to not try at this point. I am delighted to see so many people registered as Delegates, but it really is an absolute minefield out there when you start doing what I was planning on doing. I find it hard to motivate myself to promote a Delegate that seems likely to be doing little but costing me money for the foreseeable future.
There are a couple of guys I was looking into helping and I may very well help enable them if they wish to be delegates.
I think I can provide more value to Bitshares X with a slate, so that is what I will be doing. I will focus on measurable value to the community and trying to find ways to know that we are not being sybil attacked.
I may have lost a battle with 0 votes, but the war is not over.
You have not heard the last of gamey in the delegate game.
