I think he should. But I like to keep an open mind.

With Uno, the dev is not the coin. Uno is a community. I can remember a time when Uno had no dev, but the community kept it alive anyway.

Uno is now in it's 5th month of steadily rising prices, hanging around #40 on CMC and 550k cap.  It sure isn't because Bryce ever pumped Uno. In fact, some of us thought he should do more to promote Uno. Last month he called-out what he thought was a Uno pump and pissed off some long-time community members when a small selloff ensued. Still, Uno keeps climbing back, even with Bryce as dev. He has done a lot for Uno, but nobody can claim he is pumping it.

All that said, convince me that there's no place for BW in Uno, which is an open source piece of software.

Convince me he did something evil to Uno (I really don't give a shit about Naut, Razor or any other BW coin. They are not Uno, and not the subject), that the marketcap would be higher without him. Tell me how he's abused his trust as a Uno developer.

Prove that investors are "Shying away," because of BW, or just make a reasonable case for it.  Show me that the marketcap would be higher without him. Sure didn't work that way for Razor.

I'd like to hear what you think.

good thread.

I want to say:
Since i do not know what went down at blocktech (up until now nobody was able to provide any details) i do not know who is the bad guy in that story. Could be Bryce is alright and he is just victim of a smearcampaign. I do not know that. Maybe he is really not clean. I don't know that either.

I don't think uno community should make a decision in this case as long as not all information from all angles is available.

If Bryce continues to be an issue for uno and bring negative talk and thus harm the coin and its community i would be all for reevaluating his role in uno.

Right now i am waiting for more information in this case and i doubt i will get that.

Again, my take is that the currency is bigger than any singular party. The community is what makes the coin special. Community makes it special now and will make it special in the future. We own Mr Weiner a debt of gratitude for working with blazr2 to create the coin, but we as the community have been the active party on the go forward basis.

My other point is that there are many bad actors that hold US dollars and euros, but that does not necessarily make those currencies bad in and of itself. Obviously, those currencies have other structural flaws, but not due initial developer.

look at post history of the guy who started that thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=847777.msg9446525#msg9446525

that guy and nuthilda, two 19-year-old trolls posting pictures and talking shit  - it's not enough to show Bryce the door from my perspective. Until now: no evidence of anything. Only accusations. Right now looks like slander and to be honest Bryce is a good target for that because he's the loudmouth on twitter. Easy to attack.

I agree: no evidence means no good decisions can be made

i don't know anything about his involvement with any other coins, all I know is that without deliberation, when we needed work done for our coin, he jumped right in and did it... and UNO is much better for it.  i can't see any legitimate reasons to let him go.

Moved from main UNO thread:

BW - There may be some personality things, but having two capable developers is better than one.  Show me a better coin than UNO right now.  How far does BTC have to go to get the same % gain as UNO in the last 5 months, hmm?  I thought FK said BW got coaex.com on board?  That's HUGE!  I certainly couldn't do it after trying.  I think this is the time for us to support BW, not move like a bunch of cattle being prodded by fear.  Maybe we should see what he has to say about it.  All I've seen is a tweet where he says to hell with all cryptos, except for UNO, (and some 2nd one that's his.)  Honestly, that made me feel so good to read that.  I sure hope I'm not sticking my neck out for the wrong cause.  Maybe FK can contact BW and see what he says about things.

As far as drama goes, judging solely by BW's tweets, it seems that that group was getting too corporate, and maybe were setting up some nasties for clients, like a direct link between customer data and the NSA or something ugly, but I have no clue.  Maybe they didn't want to pay him in cryptos?  Maybe they did a bait-n-switch on his agreements?

Bottom line - BW's been a great help with Unobtanium, and is a valued member of our community.  If all the whiners don't like Weiner because their cryptos all stink, well at this point it seems like they are making the wrong association with him, someone to blame for their own lack of responsibility and network development.  Let's keep UNO strong, and BW's reputation can heal itself, as he's still a part of the best crypto out there.

Go UNO!

and he must sleep in the "cooler" for 3 weeks.

@BW
he said on twitter he's on a roadtrip. So maybe we can safely raise the price a little as long as his twitter is inactive before he comes back and calls us out again for buying too fast.  Roll Eyes  Cutting his biscuits should do.

Headline: "Uno community cuts biscuits for BW"  Cheesy

everybody should be happy with that. Good solution.

I concur, and believe we have a quorum.

Hey, Cameron baby, tell us the verdict:

"Cut weiner's biscuits for 3 weeks, while he thinks about what he's done."
