So let me get this straight, this project goes on for 15 years now and we neither got a product nor a slightest empirical proof that the impossible here can indeed be done.
But we get fancy UI, unimpressive “baby” releases which have nothing to do with the actual network, and finally new promises of even more sophisticated and complete product really soon. And still, every important release is being postponed/canceled, every promise of things “being around the corner” turns out to be a lie nobody takes responsibility for.
For years now all this project is about are those weekly updates which many of you are actually addicted to. You don’t understand them but you don’t care - you take it as a good sign.
Please, just think about it for a minute.
You can’t deny that you’ve heard about this project just because of Bitcoin. It got its attention next to dozens of other projects with lesser aspirations - it really wasn’t so hard back then to convince people to follow you, even if you had nothing. You just had to promise big things. It’s exactly what Maidsafe did. And still does.
Why? Well, it’s hard letting it go, especially if it still can raise millions, pay salaries, keep a great community together and get you a huge recognition…
But, well, working on impossible things is always impressive, but not always noble. In most cases it’s just working on impossible things.
Seems not likely to you? Look how many people got fooled by Theranos and the product that was supposed to change the world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0e778c2Bg0&t=337s
Go to glassdoor.com and read the comments of people who Left Maidsafe.
Prove me wrong with all of this. But not with big words.
Show me in-depth analysis of this project by some impartial authority.
Show me this network working. You won’t be able to.
Until then my friends, you all stick to your hope and gut feeling. Deep down you know you’ve got nothing more.
