To all the legit projects out there, who understand that this always was about migrating AWAY from centralized banking (a centralized future being utterly meaningless in this space to 99% of the world’s population…)
Your team is being sold out. Your team is being coerced. Your knowledge of this fact will be kept quiet. You will be told “it will be done tomorrow” until tomorrow never comes. This is no accident. Your team is compromised,… by central banking. The Ring of power.
Centralized banking presently holds all the keys. Centralized banking is afraid of you. Centralized banking wants you to fail. But knowing this fact, the cream always rises to the top, and there are legit projects out there who will find a way to rise up.
You can’t give up. What you are doing is important. What you are doing is going to put legacy fiat currencies and fake distributed on their knees. What you are doing will help improve the living conditions of millions and billions of people…
Don’t give up. Don’t stop collaborating. Evolve. Adapt. Improve. FIRE THE ROTTEN TOMATOES.
Enumerate with your team, before it’s too late, higher consequences for sabotage, mutiny, sandbagging, kicking the can, bribes, payoffs, etc. Compartmentalize when appropriate, collaborate when appropriate. Practice end-to-end encryption ALWAYS. Firewall yourself. Close off ALL vectors of attack. World class security considers ALL vectors of attack. Direct or indirect. Are you picking up what I am putting down?
In a world of sell-outs, don’t be a sell-out.
Institute rewards for whistleblowers. Hire 10x developers when all you needed was 1x. Make it cost a considerable amount of $$$ to shut your team down. TAKE MATTERS INTO YOU OWN HANDS WHEN AND WHERE POSSIBLE. Invite your team to pray with you, if possible daily.
Understand that you are not alone. Understand that they will attempt to bankrupt you a million different ways. Death by a thousand tiny censored and financially censored and anti-teamwork cuts.
Coordinate with other projects. Make open source the standard. Figure out who your friends are. Love everyone, trust almost nobody fully. If you can count on one full hand the ones who truly love you in this life, you are lucky. Trust those five or six people. Re-evaluate often.
Find people who believe in a higher power. Find people who’s morality cannot be compromised. Find people who love God more than $$$. Find people who love other people more than themselves.
Grow or die.
You are the light. You are the future of mankind. You are mighty. You are great.
And they are…
Utterly meaningless central bankers.
And what you are doing, if you should succeed, will have meaning for your children. And your children’s children. And their children’s children’s children.
Because what you are doing has meaning. And what they are trying to do, no matter how much $$ they offer your team or how many threats they quietly issue to your team and no matter how much they try and break you, yourself… What you are doing is…
Understand the difference. God Bless.
No one can serve two masters: Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
