At this point, if you are in the Chainlink community, you should either be in it for the long term or exit. If you're in for the long term, then our top mission should be to do what we can to help spur adoption & growth. If you-re not, there are a million other options out there.

Long term holders should realize it will be a multi-year journey. It likely involves more token movements considering the uncirculating supply left. It will likely take time to reduce subsidies, become profitable, & fully realize a staking system dependent on more Web3 adoption.

If those realities are not for you, then that's fine. Nobody should shame or mock people that want to put their time and money in other endeavors and projects. There a wide variety of valid reasons for wanting to do so and I seriously wish them success.

However, for the sake of long term people, we need to try to get rid of the negative energy from people that want to stay in but are unable to accept the long term nature. It hurts adoption, limits network effects, and reduces the chances of new people come into the community.

There are criticisms to be had but they are obvious now. Chainlink is surely aware of them and want to fix them but constant complaining won't solve complex problems faster. Chainlink's communication is improving but as Sergey said there "we won't always get the answers we want."

Ultimately, I'm just echoing what I have seen alot of OG & new marines say. We're not in 2017 anymore, the FUD state has ended. The path to success is now getting people excited to learn about Chainlink, join BUILD, develop with CL, etc. Bring the good vibes and memes back.

I truly am excited about the future of Chainlink as potentially the most widely used and sustainably profitable Web3 protocol. I hope to evangalize Chainlink with many of you moving forward and wish the best for people ready to move on. Let's all make it in our own way.

The fucking problem is that the most well-educated Chainlink related Twitter accounts were hired by Chainlink Labs long time ago, so they no longer can neither share their insights nor engage openly with certain comments without breaking 30 NDAs, and now they have to pretend that a fucking VRF implementation on a stupid NFT scam is somehow a win for the community, which is funny, because it would actually be a win IF Chainlink Labs didn't completely subsidize the VRF.

Do you want to do things right? (Well, not you, you are just a paid shill). Accept non-vetted nodes into VRF, Automation and Functions feeds, force them to buy LINK and stake so if they act dishonestly their staked LINK gets distributed among honest nodes in that feed. That's the original vision. Stop bootstrapping most of the retarded use cases, and make them buy LINK if they want to fund their data needs. That's how demand is high, supply is low.

>b-but a reputation framework must be properly built for that to happen
And how fucking come that hasn't been your fucking top priority since 2019 when mainnet was released and staking initial implementations were designed and openly discussed by Coventry and Hodges?

>b-but if we stop bootstrapping then people are going to move to cheaper oracles
Are you saying that the only value proposition Chainlink has is being "cheaper" than self-proclaimed "competitors"?

Firing most of the sales teams would have been a great move if SELF SERVICE was properly implemented, but it's not, it's all controlled by Chainlink Labs, and when someone calls it out it's just constant "bulgarian fudder" and silence from big accounts. Do you want to have a happy community that shares and amplifies Chainlink message? Make number go up, stop bootstrapping everyone

>b-but SCALE and BUILD programs mean they are bootstrapping us now heh

i think this is a good response in principle, but VRF is not for free https://docs.chain.link/vrf/v2/subscription/supported-networks, neither is automation and functions. I don't see them charging for data feeds since it would cause a lot of problems for existing protocols.
I think you are correct in that they should stop being so cautious about node operators and allow anyone to join in VRF, automation and functions. It would be possible to have staking collateral needed for non vetted nodes and have the vetted ones as a separate tier of adjudicators as a intermediate step in the staking roll out.
Generally speaking I don't think they are doing anything wrong, the problem is that they are perceived as being incredibly slow (relative to the rest of the space), but the gain is that they have a perfect security track record and they have been very adaptive in anticipating and delivering services that the rest of the ecosystem needs. Functions is the next big step that can cause the next evolution in smart contracts (like data feeds were in 2019-2020)

>VRF is not for free
True, that was v1. What nodes are participating in VRF v2? It's Chainlink's own node only, last time I checked my Dune dashboard. Is that a way for Chainlink to get revenue? Why not allow non-vetted nodes in and set a fee for Chainlink Labs in all randomness requests? New node operators win, Chainlink Labs win, a feed system where nodes don't try to outcompete each other is a win for end users too.

> I don't see them charging for data feeds since it would cause a lot of problems for existing protocols.
So bill them in USD forever at the end of each month? I forgot where it was but that Maker governance thread where Johann discussed the need for the protocol to adopt Chainlink oracles was quite eye-opening to the inner-working of the Chainlink Price Feeds. Being eternal "sponsors" is not scalable.

>but then some sponsors will refuse to pay and become freeloaders
Set deviation threshold and heartbeat hours apart (e.g: 24 hours, 10% dev threshold), if someone requires more granularity allow them to self-service and meet that demand by funding their contract in LINK. You won't get ridd of most free-loaders but you get to a middle point

>they are perceived as being incredibly slow (relative to the rest of the space), but the gain is that they have a perfect security track record
Well-differentiated paces are needed for different initiatives, look at what happened with Pyth and Synthetix. Chainlink lost an enormous ship because of how slowly low-latency oracles are being rolled out, they went with a non-robust solution rather to wait because of big the opportunity cost of not releasing their product in that moment vs waiting for Chainlink

>Functions is the next big step that can cause the next evolution in smart contracts (like data feeds were in 2019-2020)
Functions made things easier for devs, but it didn't add new functionality,querying api endpoint was already possible before Functions through direct requests

its not a single node providing the VRF data, its an offchain system with a single coordinator contract. following up and trying to bill for data feeds in USD would lose them far more in goodwill than it would gain them. Price feeds is the initial crack that the dealer offers to make the consumers addicted to the service.
functions is still in beta on testnet, direct requests/external adapters were not scalable since the developer had to do aggregation on chain+keeping track of the oracles involved. Functions removes the need for the smart contract developer to host and coordinate the off chain infrastructure.
The team doesn't need to be desperate and compromise on safety to gain every ounce of market share, since they have the backing of SWIFT and this is just the open source front

just because its not in the public repo doesn't mean it isn't being developed. the initial PoC was in 2016 and they have been developing together since. SWIFT contains the smartest people in the existing financial system, they are very well aware that the current system is coming to a close and they want to maintain their hegemony no matter what takes its place in the future, which is why they contracted Sergey to make sure that their existing infrastructure will be able to operate in that environment.

I bought for a decentralised network, not this gay bootstrapped shit

If people are actually allowed to engage the growth will come from there. By subsidizing you (Yes YOU, CLL) are falling into a self-fulfilling pit of becoming just amother company. Which is not why anyone is excited about crypto. You can dress it up with truth over trust all you like, currently you are a COMPANY and every node is a COMPANY EMPLOYEE.

Here's another hint. If you stay a company like this, your token will become wothless and you will have to depend on other instances to collateralize your security. Which means someone else is gonna be eating YOUR lunch, if there is any lunch left, and the crypto ecosystem hasn't simply moved on beyond you like we did fiat and banks.

It WILL happen. Pook what happened with Pyth and SNX. And Pyth fucking sucks, bigger decentralised challengers will come if you keep this up. You listening, CLL?

Crack works because it is addicting. If you’re using free price feeds for your shitty dapp that doesn’t make money or have any users (which is all of them), no one is going to start paying for that free service because they’re just so addicted to maintaining code for a user base of 0 regardless of the cost.

They’ll just abandon the project or find a free alternative…

>> No.54173204

because their scope is larger than just making a couple million per year and becoming a business.
sure they could remove data feeds from being public onchain and having them use the same payment model as the other services and have AAVE pay out of the ass (making their protocol unviable and killing demand). What youre missing is that they arent building the ecosystem for immediate profit at the detriment of long term market saturation. They don't need to focus on immediate profitability given their warchest

This is the perspective any normal person would have. We were basically encouraged to hold because of how amazing 2022 would be according to Sergey’s presentation.

Well, I’m down over $1M since then and I’m not paid a comfy salary by Chainlink and I would have been a lot happier if I wasn’t constantly encouraged to hold.

They could have said all of this when the price was $40+. At that point they should have talked about how much longer it was going to take and maybe it would be a good time to leave at that point. Not at $6.66, 90% from ATH…

no I agree, its really hard to understand what drives actually genuine adoption in the crypto space. The most organic example I have seen personally is bitcoin being used as unconfiscable savings vehicle and alternative to government fiat in the third world (nigeria, lebanon, venezuela), but this happened 10 years after the inception of bitcoin. I also think that until the nodes are actually holding the tokens as slashable collateral, there is no real cryptoeconomic security inherent in the token. Im also frustrated that smart contracts are taking so long to reach market saturation, from what I can tell the largest actual barrier is that smart contracts are unable to initiate payments in legacy financial systems, im working to fix this now with Functions but its complicated. as soon as stablecoins/ether being used for payment reaches the mainstream this all changes.

Something I don’t really see discussed much is the difference between Chainlink and the wider community. Chainlink has always been different. Anti-hype, started out with a very quiet presence. Contrast this with the generally absurd, loud cryptocurrency scam of the month and it’s a really stark difference. To make it worse, Chainlink is basically in a class of its own. There’s really not many other cryptocurrencies/teams like them. The reason I bring this up is there’s an overall sentiment in this retarded industry where most people who get involved in cryptocurrencies couldn’t give any less of a shit about the technology or the philosophical values behind it. They just want to make a quick buck.

Chainlink hasn’t done everything perfect, but they’re one of the few teams that’s actually trying to solve real problems in this retarded industry and this is completely at odds with your average braindead moonboi faggot.

The problem with smart contracts is that most people don’t want their money tied up in a bunch of escrow smart contracts. Why would I want to have $1B sitting as “collateral” in a contract in case something goes wrong when I can just take the risk and assume nothing will go wrong? This is the problem no one will accept. The financial system thrives on taking calculated risks and most of the time those risk pay off.

Let’s take this example:
>Company A wants to lend Company B $1B from its pension fund for 10% annual return
>Can’t do it because Company B doesn’t have correct rating
>Big Insurance offers to insure the $1B for 1% return…they basically assume nothing will go wrong and just want to collect 1% of a billion annually and will deal with it if an issue arises

If this arrangement were made using smart contracts, Big Insurance would ultimately have to put $1B into some escrow smart contract which is retarded for many reasons, whereas now, they don’t have to put up shit and don’t need to worry about a “contract exploit” and can use that money to invest in many other things and make more money.

Who exactly prefers this model? Company A? So they can get an immediate payout? At that point, why not just cut out all the insurance companies and you’re back to a situation where no one needs smart contracts.

I’m really genuinely curious about what these “high value” applications are and who is going to trust putting $1B into a contract that always has some % of exploitability?

I'm not sure such an architecture can exist where a smart contract is allowed to drain funds from an existing account. Also, it still doesn't make a difference as they need to keep that money idle in an account somewhere, otherwise the "proof of reserve" system will constantly trigger some notification of undercollateralization.

Then you have to consider "ok, well what if you build this huge convoluted system where one contract triggers another which triggers another and another so that they can get paid off" and it just becomes overly complex with so many unintended consequences and no one is going to want that to operate in a programmatic way.

People expect the chainlink network to collateralize a trillion dollars, but no one can really think of what the next use case will be. I can think of what it’ll be: it’ll be convincing more people that some kind of token has a lot of value and that we can’t even yet imagine what that value is.

I'm wavering between thinking its over and convinced that because I believe its over, I am the midwit signal and really its happening. Still not sure which it is. As far as TA goes, all I'm really concerned with is link/btc, and while I was initially sure it was fucked beyond belief when we broke 29k sat support, I got out of my link bubble and started comparing to other alts sats charts, and link is actually doing better than everything but eth, every other major alt either broke below their June 2022 low or just about touched it, link is still roughly 25% above it. So it isn't doing the 2019 thing yet where it outruns the market, but it also isn't underperforming relative to other alts despite what the chicken littles shout here. Basically this is the boring part of the cycle where you really should just be in btc and wait to see what happens next.

All that being said, if link doesn't break out by summer, its a fair bet it isn't going to run against the market like it did last cycle, and is "just another alt". If I were a newfag right now, I'd be in btc, and watch the link sats chart, if it breaks above 50k sats that would be a signal to get back in link, especially if it does it within the next few months before other alts recover.

The thing that has me the most macro bearish on crypto is that BNB, fucking BNB, is outperforming bitcoin AND eth since last cycle, still on an uptrend with no signs of breaking yet. Until BNB collapses, this market absolutely doesn't give two shits about fundamentals. And fuck anyone who is a binance shill, so much goddamn binance astroturfing on this board it makes me sick, you are allowed to hate kikes and chinks at the same time you know.

What Sergey said about the need to be able to pivot on the recent podcast was incredibly frustrating to hear, primarily because other teams seem to do just fine without pivoting, despite facing much bigger challenges. Arbitrum didn't pivot when other teams started working on zksnark tech, uniswap didn't pivot when exchange aggregators started popping up, cardano didn't pivot despite being a mess, hedra didn't pivot when ftm ripped them off, eth didn't pivot when scaling became an issue... in fact came you name any mid/large cap project that has failed to deliver for years and blamed it on 'pivoting'??
Sergey asks for the community to stay positive despite giving them nothing, years have gone by with absolutely colossal opportunity costs for link holders, all because the very fucking core of the project is still missing... staking. I actually sold half my stack after smartcon this year when I realised what fucking dogshit v0.1 was. Considering how much effort is put into incentivising parties correctly has anyone on the team stopped for a fucking second to consider the incentive for holders? The only reason anyone gives a shit about this thing is to make money and link has been one of the worst holds for years now. Link is an idea with so much potential, its a pity how badly it has been squandered with such botched implementation and delivery.
Also, for a man who is obsessed with the notion of truth, Sergey doesn't seem to give much of a fuck about honesty. Its incredibly poor to just pretend nothing happened regarding CCIP. The situation is so much worse than something like trusted hardware. There was an actual hard deadline missed, pathetic to not address it and say mea culpa. Usually when shit like this happens exec's offer an explanation and provide a revised timeline, not deflecting and mumble some excuse about 'pivoting'. Whats next? Is the team going to pivot on staking and maybe decide they don't need it after all?

>> No.54176206

That comparison doesn't make sense, when you consider what they're going for. Arbitrum just wants to be another shitty L2 (they're even releasing their own token despite claiming for years they wouldn't), Uniswap wants to make money on shitcoins, Cardano and Hedera want to be eth clones, ETH just wants to run the shitcoin casino (and is getting its lunch eaten by Binance for 2 years straight).

Chainlink, and this is coming from someone who is ready to admit it could still be a decade away from happening, if it ever happens, is trying to literally eat everyone elses lunch in crypto. They're trying to take it all, and build it from the ground up. That's why they subsidize price feeds and enable defi, that's why they helped with Arbitrum to try to scale ETH (and then got stabbed in the back), that's why they're building CCIP (to try to take a cut of all these transactions). You can argue its a failed strategy, but its a winner take all game they're trying to play. I can respect that at least, everyone else just wants to get theirs, get that one good pump on bitcoin, and content with selling into bagholders for eternity after. Even ETH which is held up as the gold standard has still yet to surpass its previous sats high.

So yeah I'm bearish on link and admit it may never happen, but fuck comparing it to all the other scams that are only any good if you can predict which ones will win (PLENTY of failures out there if you were actually here in 2017/18) and also get out at the right time. The reason this board coalesced around link 5/6 years ago wasn't because they believed they could time a top and get out, it was because they believed it was the next step in DLT and was going to be around for 10+ years and you'd literally never have to sell.

It makes plenty of sense. What I'm getting at is that as new surfaces for value-capture became available other teams focused on actually delivering something achievable instead of constantly dropping what they are doing to chase the next hot thing and losing all sense of scope in the process. Oracles and DONs as they exist right now are an incredibly important piece of infrastructure and staking as described would allow enormous amounts of value capture, but instead of getting on with implementing staking and giving holders a reason to continue holding, the team is doing what exactly? Who knows? They certainly aren't forthcoming with much information. They are clearly trying to lock up both the first and second order value from oracles and yet have succeeded in capturing neither.

In short the team have demonstrated that promised features can be dropped anytime, that timelines even when they are given are meaningless. So what an earth does Sergey expect us to be positive about?? I wasn't joking when I suggested the team might abandon staking altogether, I mean why not? They've abandoned trusted hardware, CCIP is missing with no real explanation despite devoting smartcon 0 to it. If it is just a bit delayed why didn't Sergey say as much at this year's smartcon or at year end? A steady flow of information is required for investor confidence and yet the team say nothing and act surprised when the community is pissed off.

That’s because there’s two distinct groups with regards to Chainlink. there’s the technology group and then there’s the token group. The technology is cutting edge, and must be fully realized before our world can change into the web3, truth not trust promises world that we want. A web3 dapp wants to guarantee security, they use nothing other than Chainlink. Then there’s the token group which can be further divided, there’s the frogs, the fudders, the discord trannies, Bulgarians and the CTfags. As a collective around the token, these groups screech louder than those that understand the technology. Let’s breakdown what each group does,
The smallest of the subset of the group. Understands the intersection between the token and the tech.
>fudders (paid or just disgruntled Linkies)
Constant screeching about the token not being needed. Doesn’t care about any arguments, will proceed to bring up token price history.
It’s in the name, and they’re fluid.
A little historical but still prevalent. Actively shorts the token and shits on it. Nearly liquidated a couple times, if not already liquidated.
Twitter people who have formed an identity around Chainlink the token and a little bit with regards to tech. While also slightly including those that just go around shilling other tokens and active CT traders. A lot of attention has recently gone here.

Anyways all this is a long winded way to say that at the moment, Chainlink has secured a monopoly amongst the oracle markets. Their tech, research and development is light years ahead of everyone else. Their oracles are active on any chain with any semblance of value. there isn’t another Oracle or decentralized oracle network. The token is used to pay for services from the decentralized oracle network, which now includes off chain computation and soon arbitrary messaging between chains, token needed for this. Consider this a low risk high reward gamble.

I don't care about Sergey, I don't follow talking heads.
checked but what?
Do you not understand the chicken and egg scenario that is staking? For staking to be self sustaining, there needs to be enough network activity to incentivize node operators to lock up their tokens for rewards. If there isn't, then either the rewards will be too small to convince nodes to stake, or instead of subsidizing price feeds, chainlink would have to subsidize the staking rewards themselves (which they're already doing and why staking 0.1 isn't real staking). There's nothing chainlink can DO on the technical side that speeds up the process of staking being profitable, besides create a larger network effect. Unfortunately, as crypto is mostly a closed system still, that relies on the rest of the crypto market to increase that network effect.

What you're not getting is that the pivoting is done precisely to increase network effect, which is THE deciding factor on whether the staking model proposed can work. And the fact you don't get that and still hold link is just yet another factor that makes me bearish, and makes me want to sell. Except I can't because I staked like an idiot.

Anyone notice how largely reasonable the conversation is itt compared to the cacophony of retardation haunting LINK threads since 2021? Capitulation. Glad the eternal optimists have been forced into actual conversations.

I agree with everyone's thoughts regarding Sergey's naivety around people's frustration about LINK and how fucking ludicrously insulting it is to be now telling people to sell after pulling that bullshit on 1 January 2022 where you told people to hold. Truly, what the absolute fuck is that? Then to say you've DELIVERED on the original whitepaper! That's the first thing he's said that made me legitimately angry.

The point I didn't see made here though is the silliness of the demand we contribute something, not just because of their own inability to deliver and the state of borderline insanity we're in because we've been skewered for 2 years, but because conversations such as those itt contain genuinely useful technical and business advice that routinely falls on deaf ears. Holders describe exactly what they want, out of an intimate understanding of the Chainlink idea built over nearly 6 years of patient attention, and it's blended up and spat back at us as grumpy complaining. No, get serious about transparency and delivery. That is not unreasonable, yet it's ignored like Eric Scmidt's advice.

It’s worse than you think regarding crypto economic security, or simply, just finding a way to make staking work.
I tried to create discussion in 2018 breadcrumb threads about a video I found of Sergey speaking in early 2017, before launching Chainlink. He admitted that there’s no precedent for staking in any academic field, alluding to the fact that he’s been trying for years. He openly admitted he has no idea how to create a staking mechanism then went ahead and lunched link half a year later anyway just hoping for the best. Without any fucking plan
Someone might know the vid I’m referring to: set in a small classroom, makes some joke about wishing he bought ETH before it took off. Some angry autist calls him out on how staking is flawed and Sybil attacks he completely admitted it. Says it might even be impossible. Still launches a token into the 2017 hype anyway. 6 and a half years later he still refers to crypto economic security as a ‘problem’

Shiny object syndrome. Common in web3 and new industries where there is lots of opportunity, and common with inexperienced founders who don’t know how to build sustainable product or use customer insights to steer roadmap.

You can tell whoever is making roadmap decisions is retarded. Remember Chainlink keepers? It launched to zero fanfare with almost zero users. It was a HUGE undertaking for the team, probably cost them tens of millions to develop and now is just a dead product. I couldn’t believe at the time they would build something without first validating the need, but it seems like it’s just a wildly inexperienced team, like most teams in crypto.

I still haven’t sold, waiting to see what CCIP and functions bring this year… but I’m concerned they’re just more products built for nobody, especially with Sergey’s “frustration” over “slow” adoption. Makes it sound like they’re solving for problems no one has. If there was a use case for what they were building, it would not be hard to find customers.

You've intentionally misrepresented this and the post is perfectly intelligible - you're just feigning incomprehension.

>No, get serious about transparency and delivery.
Top fucking kek. To everyone else: nobody ever gave two single fucks about transparency, and neither has Chainlink. In fact, that was always part of the mystique with Chainlink. That was also why it was natural to not shill it and that "lack of transparency" is what kept noLINKers away until some normies began FOMOing in when they had some news/enough social validation from 2019-2021.

From here on out: just ignore anyone FUDing and carry on posting normally. Or, better yet: just go outside and occupy your mind with something more productive than spending time on here. Besides, the quality of the FUD has become poorer and poorer as more dumb money has capitulated, or early entrants fucked off to live life during this stage of the market cycle away from the retards left on here that didn't sell the top. The only people left are newfags and people spending all their free time trolling retards/newfags.

SWIFT is a fucking meme. How delusional do you have to be after 6 years in this space to believe ANY growth will come from legacy institutions?
It's the same retarded narratives XRP, IOTA or BSV bagholders latch to with 0 success.
ALL of the money in this space is made through innovative features and composability with other defi startups/protocols.
A bunch of crusty boomers at SWIFT will never buy or use your service token, just like IBM or Google or Docusing didn't. And you don't need them when you have a dapps like GMX or AAVE or Compound trading BILLIONS (which will turn to trillions) everyday using your services.

What Chainlink needs is to release the fucking staking and CCIP establishing it as an increasingly decentralized and censorship resistant defi primitive that generates money for its participants.
Most if you are fucking clowns and never use dapps nor provide liquidity so you don't even understand what I'm talking about.

I think the team are very safe and should get comfy. Relax take your time. Things taken from a far do not result in violent repercussions.

Normies or schizos it does not matter although the INTP type that most allegedly have here could result in a more cautious approach when dealing with a potentially volatile situation. This was disproven by the LPL fallout. Unless they simply lied to construct a false in group to gather real INTPs. Regardless they all were rugged and the scammers got away scot free productions

Imo his desire for us to contribute isn't that bad, however why should anyone contribute? Morale has been completely NUKED after missing the bullrun and also going back to 2019 lvls vs BTC/ETH. If LINK was trading at 30-50$ right now, most 2018 OGs would have made it (7-8 figures) and would have been actively contributing to the ecosystem because they can afford to. But today, most OGs are back to 6 figure hell except those that sold the 2021 run up to $50. Meanwhile Ethereum has tons of developers and enthousiasts because you can actually make money joining the Ethereum ecosytem. A profit incentive always spurs innovation. What has chainlink done? They fund the entire defi system by giving the bill to Link bagholders. Then they have the nerve to tell us to ''be positive''.

The point is that you don’t release a product you think will be useful at some undetermined point in the future without any need for it now. That’s just classic narcissist CEO thinking like you can predict the future or know what people want or need. The way to build sustainable business is to build things that are valuable to people NOW. You don’t make money with products nobody wants.

I didn't sell the top of link & linkpool. I kept my mindstate positive and shilled the project while sergey kept on dumping his bags.
Then when staking comes, linkpool rugpulls, we get v0.01 staking and now sergey is blaming us for negative vibes while the token price is shit.
Blame the community, my life has been a strugle after linkpool rugging.

Anyone also find it ironic that biz somehow has more insightful discussions about chainlink and how things should go than the team itself? Just look at the Celsius situation. Biz knew it was a scam as early as 2020 and it all fell on deaf ears over at chainlink labs. Over and over again biz has to correct their mistakes and CL labs just quietly sweeps them under the rug. And biz just consists of a bunch of neet incels, who still know more about this stuff than the so called employed ''experts'' over at chainlink.

This is in line with my tale - it just feels like massive scope creep. Like they are lost in their own back yard. Yes, they are making progress and releasing products and features, but they aren't doing it against a defined need. It is what Google does. Difference there is they are doing it off the back of their original vision and killer app - search. They have no issue iterating and launching and letting things die, because their bread and butter continues to mint day and night. That's not the case here - CLL has failed to release the original product and instead skipped straight to the "do whatever you like" phase. I knew as soon as white paper 2 landed - talking about super linear steaking and DONs when regular nodes and staking never launched - we were in trouble.

No development. No progress. All it does is verify data and no one cares and no one will care until sergey fixes all these fake promises and stops dumping.
