Thank you.

I think you might have your supplies and demands backwards regarding price speculation, but your point is well taken.

I almost wish the launch has been a little LESS fair if that would have sped up development, but good things come to those who wait.

Nice work!

There is a -> Monero Community Hall of Fame <- thread to raise funds for Monero development here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=700400.0 which is a continuation of the original thread. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=697438.0;all. Many thanks to rpietila for his work starting the original thread and to cAPSLOCK for his work in maintaining the new thread.

Concerned that blockchain bloat will lead to centralization? Storing less than 4 GB of data once required the budget of a superpower and a warehouse full of punched cards. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/IBM_card_storage.NARA.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_card
