@lostmoney If you took part in the Decorum crowdsale I'm not sure you've lost money. SafeX too I think. And even if the price is currently down* you have not lost anything unless you have sold already.
I haven't checked very recently, but from time to time I looked at the value of those coins and they have been in profit almost every time.
- I'm talking pounds here, because that's how I value investments
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, I haven't checked today, but even if they are in loss right now, there were definitely opportunities to sell at a profit, and like David I still have faith in Harman (@Seneca) and Decorum. I felt that I got to know him quite well having so much to do with the forum, and as co-moderators, and I never saw anything to undermine that view.
I had assumed he was less active on the forum for good, understandable reasons, and these are confirmed today. No guarantees, but it is far too early to judge Harman or Decorum or say you've lost money because you sold too early. Once Mutable Data is out (Alpha 3) I expect we'll get to see things moving again, and if you weren't aware of that you weren't following Harman or your investment adequately. Since he posts so little now, that would have been very easy to do.
With SafeX things are much less happy in my mind, but it's still possible Daniel will reward crowdsale investors. I think it is very unlikely he'll implement on SAFEnetwork because he's lost so much credibility by attacking MaidSafe and actively trying to undermine the project, and painted himself into a corner with baseless accusations. But who knows! I confess I'm puzzled why he's calling it SafeX, again it seems to lack integrity.
I value integrity and values, actions based on evidence and open discussion and that is why I was drawn to MaidSafe and why I've stuck with it n this project, and tended to watch other projects from a distance.
