First off: Most of our devs are in fact paid in Zcoin.
As you dramatize, let me to the same:
The dev team takes ALL the risk and the miners take none! When Zcoin mining becomes unprofitable, they’ll just hop to the next coin. When developing this coin becomes unviable financially, we have to close down the project and don’t have jobs anymore!
See? Always two sides. What do you think you gain from us not being paid anymore? If nobody creates value by development, the value will just drop to zero and your mined coins are worthless. Is that what you want? You can’t just look at your side and cry foul without considering the whole.
It’s also not an unethical for seed investors to receive a return on their investment. Without them we could have never started to develop this thing the way we did and they deserve a decent return for that. That’s just how the world works.
You said it yourself: We’re all in this together. That includes Miners, Znode owners, team members, holders, and also our seed investors. That’s precisely why we’re asking for feedback here on the future of the project in the post founder’s rewards times.
