Yes, you are correct about that. @dASHBREAKER
will be allowed to remain active on this forum, but will still be subject to Dash Nation forum rules, which means no speculation as fact. Some of his criticisms have merit, if he’s forced to abandon some of his more colourful, less-factual comments.
Thank you, and I agree with you that you cannot simply ban someone on suspicion alone, I even doubted for a second to even post the connection.
However seemingly using info such as he provides is extremely difficult to discredit and or counter, and I am saying this while I hold a Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology, (aka designing and reviewing organisational structure is part of my CV)
And this is precisely what a concerned troll does, causing doubt.
To address the matter at hand he speaks of and other here as well. Yes Dash Core has grown, and yes Dash Core had more than it's fair share of problems, but most of these problems have been fixed, and quit a few solution where revolutionary and innovative for the whole crypto industry. I would say that so grade A stuff.
The only reall thing is that software development is moving to slow.
From my personally I am relativity optimistic here, and am expecting, the extreme delay of 12.3 as a one off, and expect 12.4 to be live in about 5 months after 12.3 is live.
We should also compare Dash to other top coins, honestly are coins such as bch, ltc, eth, xmr, nem and DCR even delivering any meaningful code in a timely manner ?
Take for example eth, what are they doing ? moving to POS, sharding, some form of privacy, something similar to LN. ETH is talking about these things now for a couple of years, and still they haven't really delivered anything.
XMR for example, what have they done other than implement code that is based on other people research, bulletproofs is certainly cool if delivered, but still XMR will still scale very poorly, specially because they will use that added benefit into an increase of more ring signatures.
From my perspective these are far more basic concepts than the concept of creating the Dash evolution platform.
Assuming that Dash can deliver 12.3, 12.4 including DIPS 2,3 and 4. Some alfta/beta version by the end of 2018, we will do just fine.
I am expecting to see the Dash Core team, blow most if not all of the competition out of the water in terms of delivering in terms of speed and quality code. The structure of the Dash Core team is simply miles more professional than the above mentioned projects.
I will even go so far as to say, Dash will probably not copying bitcoin-core code anymore into Dash core, but will be running ahead of them by the end of 2020.
I am not attempting to be an over optimistic hippie here, but I am fine with being critical, and we should continue to be so, but, some of us are starting to undersell Dash in a way that not fair when comparing it to our competition (coins that are aiming to be a currency).
The take way from my story is: this overly negative behavior, is negatively affect Dash it's position in the marketplace as well. While almost all others are overselling there coin/project we are underselling ourselves. Please don't undersell Dash, seeing we have already delivered so much, and some much more to come.
