1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][NO-PREMINE][EtherGEM] An ethereum network with a different view. on: March 20, 2018, 04:01:32 PM
Yeah, this is looking like it will be a great project. Especially interested in: "Dual mining ethergem and a token on claymore is something new" and it's great to see a new offering with the feature set. Very exciting.

Is there info on the dev team? I saw a couple of posts mentioning a great team so I'm curious who is behind it. (I've only seen limited information so far)

Anyway, looks great so far!

Used to play World of Warcraft ... from 2005 until around 2008 and then again from around 2014 to last year. It just became too tedious and the repetition is ridiculous. Always loved Assassin's Creed games, even the bad ones lol. Have yet to really get a chance to play Origins however, but it's great so far.

Very interesting concept and it looks like you've done some interesting work. On mobile but saving for later. I'm curious if there are other signals that are similar out there.

I just think everyone gets hung up on the thought that there was a broken promise when there wasn't... Are you all mad at Microsoft for cutting off your XP support/updates?

Case in point. Microsoft had the courtesy of announcing their intent to retire XP well over 12 months prior to it happening.

Had Margin been a little more transparent and simply stated that there was a remote possibility that they would (or were considering) to pivot their model to a subscription-base at the time of the price increase, this debate would most likely not be taking place. Most of us who are unhappy would have been in a better position to make an informed decision as to whether or not to purchase the license at that time.


Understood, and perhaps Microsoft wasn't the best example to use given that Microsoft is/was in a very different position than Margin whereas Margin is a much newer company and doesn't have the ability to provide an announcement that far in advance. I would assume that if they did (understanding they are also a very small company), they wouldn't be around in 12 months to support the lifetime product anyway - assuming limited income based on a set price product.

I'm not saying they couldn't have taken a different direction with the announcement that would have alleviated much of the ire that's been invoked, but I still have to go back to my opinion that it is only the fault of the consumer if they purchase a product from a new company with misconceptions regarding the product. Especially when the company goes beyond what I feel is a completely reasonable offer going forward. I mean they are basically giving you half your money back with the free period and you still get to use what you bought.

I can see why some may be angry about it, but at least attempt to see that they are going far beyond what many other companies may do in the same event.

I'm not affiliated with them by the way - I'm just a new user. I'm not even trying to take sides, rather I am just trying to be objective. I can see your side of things, but I still personally lean toward this being a positive overall for everyone.

As a new user, I didn't read anywhere that said they would be providing lifetime updates unless I missed that part. I did read that they would be providing software with a lifetime license which is what anyone buying it should expect.

It's no different than purchasing an operating system that provides a lifetime license but not updates, or purchasing development software with a lifetime license that Microsoft or another company will stop providing updates for in the future.

They've actually already provided a great deal giving anyone that purchased the software a 50% off subscription along with 6 or 12 months for free. If you use the 6 or 12 months, and consider that you'd be paying half of the Standard subscription's price for those months, the 6 month period would cost you $87 and the 12 month period would cost you $174. Subtract that amount from what you paid for the original software (which you still get to keep and use) and please let me know where you can get the same features for that cost - especially without a subscription.

I just think everyone gets hung up on the thought that there was a broken promise when there wasn't... Are you all mad at Microsoft for cutting off your XP support/updates?

Just wanted to say that if you look at the cost of other similar products and compare the features, the leonArdo team has been more than fair offering early adopters a 50% discount on the subscription plans (especially when you take into account the free 6 months or 1 year of the Standard plan...).

Also, having talked directly with their support team via email (not through the forum), they are extremely fast at replying and very direct with their answers.

Everyone complaining - have you ever tried to contact Cryptopia's support? (Good luck - submitted a ticket and there's a 23 day wait)...

Anyway, just wanted to post my experiences so far in case anyone new coming in sees the discouraging posts from users that are upset about the subscription move. You can't really be mad when you purchase a product and the company's direction changes due to market circumstances. I mean you can, but why would you? It's a great product and a great price.

TL;DR: The cost is more than fair; the support team is great; people complaining should probably examine other models/support before complaining; it's a great product.

Thanks leonArdo team!

Hey Jonathan,

Please let us know if this change/switch to margin will be taking place in the next day or two.

I'm interested in purchasing leonArdo but would only want to do so knowing that I can receive the 50% discount on the continued subscription after the free trail. However I would like to look at it tomorrow in detail before making a decision and just want to get a better idea of how soon the launch will be taking place.

Thanks!
