Although I believe Maidsafe can make huge breakthrough and success, it is still necessary to mention investor and developer about the risk. And I browser the maidsafe.net and this forum, I can hardly find any risk mention.
The risk includes the timeline of process nobody can tell exactly and so many unpredictable events in future. Although like Irvine said we can make impossible things appear obviously,any breakthrough or any huge success is a small possibility event like “black swan”, which is unpredictable. Therefore, I think mention the risk is very necessary.
Best wishes for Maidsafe project.
