NXT 2.0 crowfunding will be a failure
May 24, 2016, 09:06:36 am

Just a reminder in case you don't know. LISK never raised $6m, they just said they did. Don't expect to get a funding they said to have, because it was never there.

Who says we need this amount?
It is just stated that 50% will be reserved.
What will be done with them is not completely decided, yet.

This moment is still a year in the future, so options are still being discussed.

I just don't want developers to quit after the LISK scam is confirmed. I hope NXT raises a lot, but I don't want anyone's hopes to depend on it.

We are working on many other ways to solve the funding issue.
This is definitely NOT the only way that funding is being addressed.  :)

I find these statements a bit lacking in substance- can you specify further?
Please note: I did not invest in LISK because I am sceptical about several aspects of it, but I have not seen any evidence for claims as the above.
Have you?

Not a problem.  ;)

This isn't a game of "lets raise the highest ICO amount"....we're looking at a couple of other ways of raising development funds without holding our hands out for an ICO, which will be pretty much the last fundraising option.

BTW: 'crow' funding ? Can I get some cash for a nice raven ?

The codebase is identical to Crypti, which already had an IPO earlier. Every investor would know that and it is a strong signal against investing, because you can expect the active development to take up to 5 months, then stop for another funding.

What are you even talking about? We will do a proof of existence sooner or later, so you can see for yourself that we really collected 14,000+ BTC.

Please don't bad-mouth honest projects just because you are sceptical.

Honest towards who? The Crypti owners? Yes, sooner or later... I have a better idea. Please help us coordinate the similar scam funding to attract attention.
