I'm not sure what you mean by this? This project was born out of something that I wanted to see in the cryptocurrency landscape. I came to Dash to do this project, because it has the feature set that my vision requires (ie Instant transactions). I have had no contact with lead developers or core team members, except the aforementioned. I reached out on Dash Nation slack (in general) about the project and nitya decided it was valid enough to work on this with me. @moocowmoo is the github owner of the dashvend code (I had originally planned to fork dashvend) and an extremely helpful resource for me thus far. The number of people I have conversed with in Dash community can probably be counted on 2 hands outside of the casual comment. Dude, I am so confused. I'm not sure why you think the proposal was "pre-ordained" by anyone. I have done nothing but answer questions and concerns here... Well I'm glad you think the project is worthwhile?
