You're right. It all went to shit when Ari messed up the appeal at the ERC council back in April. If he hadn't gone apeshit, the council could have upgraded Chainlink's rating. Maybe not all the way back to ERC-20, but maybe ERC-14 or 15. This was our best chance before the ratings get locked in place at the ISO-20022 launch. Between now and then the only way to get upgraded from ERC-10 to ERC-20 is by backroom negotiations, but that's unlikely to go well. We could have had a chance with Jessica doing all the heavy lifting if you know what I mean (Celsius and Chainlink are working close together, and the team does collaborate quite a bit), but ever since she left our backroom negotiating power has been reduced significantly. Blythe isn't willing to go as far as Jessica was. Hell, nobody is. Rory is quite the soldier and I think we'd be able to convince him to take one for the team, but the folks at the ERC council are as straight as an arrow, so that's a no go.
