Negativity kills motivation, so I understand that a bit, realistic critique is ok though. Trade talk involves way to much emotive feelings and highly charged accusations made with some (false) absolutism. It all make such helpful chat difficult. In terms of launch etc. there is a possibility right now that if we launched tomorrow the (financial) impact would be dwarfed with the btc rise, if all we wanted to do was look at money/profit/cash/power that would be a problem, but our goals are to provide everyone in the world with something we believe they need, like food, water or safety. That is a secured very available new Internet. It makes the goal very single minded and spurious targeted negativity can be an enemy to folks working extreme hours.
Personally I distance myself from negativity as much as possible, otherwise I might be forced to act like a defeatist or just somebody with no energy. If somebody was in a room with me and was being negative and not proactive in advancing the project then you can be sure I would react to that and they would not be in the room very long
As for many supporters, they will also feel very similar. Investors can be varied, many of our early investors are huge supporters and that amazes me. Day traders, well that’s a whole different ball game, the focus there becomes very much cash oriented with extremely short term profit as a goal, many times regardless of what brings that profit. Long term holders helps as well, mid range trading also is a hug benefit. So “people” are not a group you can reference without further clarification when talking about these kind of projects and feelings/motivations.
