Being anonymous obviously doesn't help the developers of shitcoins and clones, however does the anonymity factor detract from the work of hard working developers who are making valuable contributions to the community?

Put another way, do institutional investors (within the context of supporting projects or buying aged PoW coins, not IPO/scams/PoS-premines), become deterred if the lead developer of a project is anonymous?

I wonder just how much of a bearing a developers identity has on a project.

If developer identity mattered then Mastercoin or another copywright coin like Maidsafe would be #1 crypto right now..

As well anonymity seems to be a requirement.  I keep hearing rumor that Ethereum may never launch due to Canadian laws on crowd funding and securities.

There ain't no Revolution like a NEMolution.  The only solution is Bitcoin's dissolution! NEM!

Sure it does. It makes it easier for them to get away with successfully launching their next shitcoin.
