I've been witnessing for this blockchain's users since Sept 27 2018 with techcoderx. The very day I started witnessing I expressed the need for changes like , giving users the freedom to create accounts, building a larger development team with witnesses , and the problems that come with ICO or un-mined stake that controls all account creation and getting that kind of system on exchanges .
I was told in so many words to keep my mouth shut over and over by people who left smoke many months ago. But, I am still here. I am still voicing the same concerns about Smoke's future.
Smoke lost a number of talented witnesses and developers since these debates back in Sept 2018.
I believe for smoke to be attractive , blockchain investors be need to see, the robust governance DPoS can provide in action.
Democratic user powered development It is very powerful when harnessed for us within global data networks . Add to that decentralized access and storage, liqudity on exchanges , providing data storage cheaper than say amazon, and freedoms like immutable content.. other centralized networks like AWS can not even come close.
Smoke does very well with cheap and generally reliable data access, minus account creation (we can't make accounts) and minus all the backups witnesses quiting causing the chain to freeze for days.
It takes a team of people working together all around the world to make this work sustainably.
Is smoke worth your time? Do you really want to be here because of smoke's freedom or is it only for the payment of coins earned through inflation/print?
What is more valuable to you? Earning through content creation? Or building a system of sustainable networking to store important data for decades?
