To whom. Only those who don’t do their research and rely on others to do it for them. Even a few hours reading a month is enough to know otherwise.
Progress is not measured by being on the top of a manipulated crypto market. I can have a useless coin that has few trades and yet have a market cap of billions because the last trade for 0.00001 coins was for 10$ per coin (trade amt = 0.1 cents)
Also progress cannot be measured by market cap ranking because as new coins and projects come and go they can be above others since they have more coins and pumps/dumps during the period viewed.
Progress is measured by actual progress, odd I know to measure progress by actual metrics rather than the opinion of those buying and selling pumps and dumps.
Where are they being lost. I didn’t know the devs were so hard worked that they forget how to find their way home and back to work. But seriously look for yourself and realise as David says in any project longer than 1 year that there will be devs come and go. If you spent time reading the last 10 updates you would see the expansion of the team. And the occasional dev move onto other things or as a couple have taken extended leave (eg marriage for one)
But it seems your intention was not to learn since you could have read updates and found out for yourself.
