We appreciate your concern. We are a strong community ( stronger than we look ). We have knowledgeable scientists ( not devs) like EK, Coralreefer. We have volunteers like Unvoid who work every chance they have. We have a democratic voting system. We listen to anyone , even ones that offer 200 BTC twitter account  Wink , but at the end we make a logical decision.

free distribution? Yes, shipping and handling is free, but the XEL coins will cost you a lot. Start saving !

I can't believe that we can't find a motivated C dev with networking experience to work on this project. How is that possible with so much talent in these forums? Did anyone put any formal ad for this somewhere?

Seems we will have a mainnet (light wallet version) in 2-3 weeks!

That's really a nice move to let people change hands and attract new people.

And

Elastic is better than Golem and iEX !

 We have a democratic voting system. We listen to anyone , even ones that offer 200 BTC twitter account  Wink , but at the end we make a logical decision.

The biggest flaw in democracy, which looks great "on the paper", is that not always people make rational descisions as it assumed or have enought knowledge/ability to make one or make their descision for the small immidiate gane instead of  longterm benefit due to various reasons - You can see it at politics almost on daily basis.

And I have not started to talk about situation, like this project, when most of project is done by few individuals, and their idea can be "overuled" by votes of many that have not done anything besides give small donation.  ( that is the reason that I havn't voted by the way and will do it hapilly if EK (for example) will voice his preffered opinion so I can follow it).

But again, maybe I am wrong. Cheesy

I can't DISAGREE more ! First of all , we have EK's blessing on the vote ( so you don't have to create a chaos here), second of all the whole purpose of Lite wallet is : 1) Create a Foundation that would benefit our scientists specially EK ( who wants to save all the kola bears). 2) Bring new people to this project and have them invested. 3) Let the sellers sell, and the longs buy more  Cool In summary, with enough funding, liquid asset, more dev help this project will progress every day faster than ever. Call this democracy or whatever you want, but it's good for the long run.

@yossir you cant mix fair community voting as we have it here (every participant can give his voice with a vote to a question the community decided it is important to vote about) with "democracy" in our mordern world where yout vote a colour (party) and then they will rule for around 5 years and do decissions for you (mostly influeneced from other things but that would be a long topic).
so our todays system should not even be called democracy as they have nothing to do with it.
elastic is not just some individuals who made a small donation, everyone had the chance to participate it had a ultra fair timeline so we all have been same and people took a big risk during that time to dont know where the project will go to.

so in my opinion its much more fair (and maybe in future even better with a voting system that is more advantaged) to let the community decide what direction we want to go.


     


100% agree on this!

it's more fair and a better democracy!

So how does this work now once the wallet is launched? Those who want to sell their XEL would do it OTC or is someone going to contact a reputable exchange?

I think warm orange instead of the green will look better. is the choice definite, or can adjustments be made?

I haven't voted, but I would've voted for the green. The vote is over. This is what was chosen by the community and I'm happy with the outcome.

At the end of the day it's about building the brand around the logo, not the logo around the brand.



@twistelaar - What's the point with voting, when you want to change the logo just because you don't like the outcome of the voting, which is what majority selected!

Logo looks great, was selected by fair voting, and as asenski said it's also about building a brand. 

No worries, I also like the logo! Just thought that orange would be nicer, or dark blue. I never really have seen this colour of green in an company's logo.

Next goal after the litenet voting is to setup the foundation  Smiley

It's like always: At first 2-3 weeks of OTC trading then some smaller exchange will add XEL eventually. After sometime with eventually good volume a bigger exchange might pick it up. Exchanges usually don't add coins that folks propose to them. They just care about revenue. Take our competitor Golem for example, hundreds of folks contacted them and proposed a Golem listing, but they didnt give a shit. It needed the Liqui-exchange to have revenues ob above 100BTC per day and then they listed Golem as they saw that profits are being made.

I think Yunbi ( in China) might be interested in XEL. ( just guessing since Chinese investors love supercomputers  Cool )

elastic is not just some individuals who made a small donation, everyone had the chance to participate it had a ultra fair timeline so we all have been same and people took a big risk during that time to dont know where the project will go to.

so in my opinion its much more fair (and maybe in future even better with a voting system that is more advantaged) to let the community decide what direction we want to go.


I think that we are bit offtopic but yet I will try to explain my point of view in very short way.

I strongly believe that the one's that actually do the hard work - should choose what will be done with it. Donations to projects - are what they are, donations. Not investments. so risk, timeline etc are not relevant as I DONATED to possibility of new great technology that is happening right before our eyes. ( I don't have anything against if I will make mil. or 5 in the process )
Their generosity of people who actually did something in this project, in giving all the work to people should not be exploited even if there is a possibility of it, without them agree to that, which I havn't seen. Thats more or less my problem with all this voting and choosing what to do with someone else's work (not mine, I am too lazy to something like many others - I gave money).

And you correct, Is kind of wierd hybrid of democracy, but yet it has all the problems of it, you never know how proffesional or rational people's votes, but let's leave this subject and focus on Elastic.
