I do, and you do not. A few people do not make a market. Even worse having so few contributors means people can put financial pressure on devs. The IFP was the best way to prevent that

As with everyone else you can't give a reason the IFP is a bad thing. The arguments against it were absurdly weak, and based on lies and misinformation.

The fundraising is absurdly stupid, and unsustainable. A couple larger dinners is not a market. Having the community pay for the software the miners use is closer to socialism.
replied 1d
The current models seems to share more with socialism than the IFP would. We currently have user charity drives to fund the development of software the Miners use.

Well hopefully you remember this after the fork when the BCH value gets cut in half again. Another fork will be horrible for BCH, and the petty squabbling over the IFP was not worth it
replied 2d
That is not how socialism works, and it is very ignorant to hand wave the term socialism as if it was relevant. The IFP has nothing in relation with socialism.

If they use their own software then they could direct IFP funds to the burner address. They could be added to the whitelist and have funds go to their dev team.

That was a flip a coin decision. Seems ABC didn't even mind using ASERT. Either way was good. It really didn't matter too much.
replied 3d
I do like the idea of the miners paying for the development of the software they use, instead of having community fundraisers from the users. The users already pay fees.
replied 3d
Arguments and burned bridges suck. Their performance is okay considering a lack of funding. I just wish people had rational reasons, and that it wouldn't lead to a damaging fork.
replied 3d
The only legitimate point I saw brought up wasn't so much against the IFP. It was just how to add more teams to the whitelist. The rules for being added to the list seemed fine.
replied 3d
I don't know if it has changed, but it was a list of projects a miner could choose what team to support. Not just ABC. I think it even had a burner option of paying no one.
replied 3d
I keep hearing that, but no one seems to be able to give any. It's all either untrue, or irrelevant ideology and poor analogies of the IFP. Essentially strawmen arguments only.
replied 3d
Irrelevant to me then since I see socialism as evil.
replied 3d
I think it was FUD that seeped in from outsiders who wanted the community to fork again and destroy its perception from the outside. Seeing it happen again for little to no reason.
replied 3d
No one ever gave a good reason to be against it other than analogies to irrelevant ideas. Vague ideas of market forces which they are not. A few large dinars is not market forces.
replied 3d
The problem is people trying to tie this to political ideology in strange ways. It is not socialism, or a tax. Trying to paint the IFP as such was just meaningless FUD.

Amaury is clearly the smart as developer and it sucks to see Community rejecting. I don't see much of a chance for Success without him sadly.
replied 4d
Considering how it tends to be a few large donations its horrible. The IFP was the best way to prevent a blockstream style problem. What's next Red Dwarf marathons? Is this PBS or BCH?
replied 4d
BCH along with it sadly. Without the IFP there is no sustainable funding plan. The charity drive model is absurd.
replied 5d
Other than that I only ever sold tokens I was given. It seems like some people when making them gave them out to very active Memo users.
replied 5d
A lot of it was the AUDC token. I think I was given some at first, but at one point someone put up a large sell for about 0.00005 each, and later I was selling for 0.1 each.

Maybe the Market Cap was seen as misleading. I think people take the value too seriously and speculate with tokens. I know I made about 1.65 BCH selling tokens.

Now it lists them by activity.
