Our current thinking on current EOS events.

DECAF is pointless

“Are you still on that call?”

“Yes , shouldn’t be too much longer…”

“But it’s Father’s Day…”

I was hosting the call, couldn’t drop off.

It was important!

A day or so before, we were on another call with the BPs working on the EOS 911 rescue approach. We invited Bitfinex to the call as we knew they were setting up to unlock the Mainnet very soon.

I have been honest and vocal about my disappointment in ECAF on the Father’s Day call and soon after. They were professional but overcautious, the lack of an order at that time left a vacuum, which has yet to be filled and has opened the FUD gates to a vocal minority to push their agen...
