This message was posted by dashmaximalist aka cryptoridez today on Discord: This is not the first time this has happened. And an apology is not enough this time. This campaign was advertised with a six figure amount of signups (140,000 is the latest number I'm aware of). Now you have to ask yourself how many of those were fake? How can we tout "100K signups, success! GO DASH!!" when it's the same bunch of people receiving free money over and over at the expense of our network? How does it help the DAO being robbed blind? The damage is done. The question is do we just suck it up (again!) and act like nothing happened? I say no. The only reasonable and responsible way forward is to shut down the program to prevent further theft. The money is literally burnt and letting this go on another day would be pure insanity. I strongly urge any MNOs to switch their votes to NO on this proposal due to the reasons stated above. This isn't even about Dash alone by the way: Dash"maximalist" has launched the same exact proposal/campaign over at SmartCash. How many coins are being stolen there from fake signups right now? The SmartCash community might want to know... EDIT: The goal of this campaign was to increase usage and adoption of Dash. So we have to look at active addresses and transactions per day. Let's look at the last 3 months: Both charts are all over the place but certainly not going upwards. If we really reached 140,000(!!!) people as this campaign is constantly being advertised with, then please excuse me for asking when I say: Where the fuck are they on those charts??
