I share your concerns, @Cybnate, but just like you said: it's all about balancing risks and potential profits.
I can't assess the risk of granting bittrex access to the source code before it's open to everyone. I can't calculate any value for the risk.
I can't calculate the potential profit as well.
So it will be hard to make an educated guess whether the risk or the potential profit is bigger.
If we assume that getting NBT listed at bittrex saves NuNet from paying some parking rate interest, generates more adoption, more transactions, more awareness of NuNet, this could be very well worth several thousand NBT in the next weeks and even more in the next months. Especially if it turns out to be a stepping stone effect!
I see a different type of problem.
I don't see how bittrex can be treated differently from the rest of the world. That seems to be in conflict with the motion to open the source code.
As we know the motion says
but to make early access to the source code for bittrex one of those steps would be, well, strange - to say the least.
It would be very great to have the source code open as soon as possible and I think that is what's being worked for behind the scenes right now.
Maybe we just need a little patience...
