As I have mentioned before, the BTC addresses need to remain private for shareholder privacy (some addresses are payments for shares). While BTC funds have not been used very recently for contractors or other expenses, they have in the past and will be in the future, which also requires privacy. Similarly, the NBT addresses need to remain private because contractors are paid from them.
As far as funds remaining are concerned, I control 203,181 NBT which belong to shareholders. These funds are intended for backup liquidity operations when FLOT does not act quickly enough. They are also used for NuBit development expenses. Last May we cut our monthly development expenses down from around $50,000 per month to around $10,000 per month. I can tell you we are under that 10,000 figure per month on average, but I do not have the exact figures in my possession. I have not received any compensation from NuBits since November 1, because it is important for me to minimize my work with NuBits in order to properly focus on B&C Exchange. Mike is the Lead Developer on the project, and Angela handles invoices from contractors. I am eager to hand these funds over to others and a transition toward that end is well underway but not yet mature. Just as I provided incentives for the formation of FLOT, I will need to provide additional incentives for another backup liquidity operator to step up to replace me. We also need to designate someone (or multiple people) to hold development funds.
Sorry if this isn’t top notch service, but I am handling these funds for free and don’t want to do it anymore. Accordingly, I am not very interested in investing my time into improving the process.
Ultimately, I need to not hold any shareholder funds in order for the network to be completely decentralised. We are getting there at a pace that is sensible.
