This is the same stuff he always says. It's just general stuff that he can get away without explaining in deep detail. I'm looking for specific responses about how exactly the liquidity engine is supposed to work. I wrote that whole article on how I think it is supposed to work and he refuses to address any of the points I made with specifics. He only says general things like we need to increase scale first, which in my opinion is just a general excuse he gives to try and keep the Ponzi going.
He also said that we needed to hire people with specialized knowledge that knew how to run it, so instead of doing actual education on this topic like we wanted, he appoints himself the only one who knows what it really going on. How convenient that this allows him to keep all the specifics to himself. I personally believe he can't explain how the engine is supposed to function because it's just a convenient excuse that can be used without proper explanation to keep the money flowing in.
They were random new accounts popping up out of nowhere to praise Phoenix and help justify his massive NuShare reward. Phoenix even said himself that he wanted to give one of these people free NuShares just because they agreed with everything he said, which was just a slap in the face to all the shareholders who had been hurt. No, there is no direct evidence like most things, but it so convenient that these people pop up only when Phoenix was trying to make it seem like he deserved a huge reward. Then they promptly vanished, never to be heard from again.
What other conclusion can you draw here? There is never going to be direct evidence for everything you want to know. You need to be able to read between the lines. There are just too many negative coincidences that benefit Phoenix and point to him orchestrating everything through propaganda and intentional avoidance of transparency. At some point you need to decide whether the coincidences are too much to be believable and cash out. That's what I did.
Fine, maybe not proven, but like I said above there is circumstantial evidence and coincidences that benefit him. I believe it was first brought up in that analysis thread that @mhps made, where he looked for voting patterns with addresses on the blockchain. Then there are all the motions where stagnant shares come out of hiding only to put Phoenix over the edge and then vanish from wherever they came.
He is not just trying to make Phoenix look bad. He is trying to point out all these negative coincidences that form a pattern. It seems too many of you are just not seeing them and are falling for propaganda and the narrative he's trying to sell to turn us into the bad guys. As I've stated it is a common tactic by those who are trying to deflect attention away from themselves and their behavior.
I would have to agree with you on this one, even though once again we have no direct proof. I immediately noticed the similarities in posting habits and even confronted him privately about it. He denied it of course, the same as he is doing in public. Even if it is true, I don't think that takes away from his arguments.
This is true that they were stolen, but it may not have been primarily for financial gain. If we are to draw the conclusion that they are the same person, I would argue that the main reason would instead be to help prevent an obvious scam from continuing to function again in order to protect future victims from suffering financial loss. I won't say that I think that justifies the action, but I'm just pointing out that there is a better reason for understanding why he might have done this, in order to protect the public. The less money Nu has to work with, the less of a chance it has to get back on its feet and continue drawing in new victims.
Again, I am not condoning the action taken, but merely explaining the reasoning that may have taken place. In his mind since he was convinced the entire thing was a fraud, it may have made more sense to try and starve it for funds in order to kill it once and for all. To do that though would mean sacrificing his identity.
