It is now more than a year since the public testnet for STEALTH was promised.
Roughly three months since the last update on steemit by @agorise.
Zero updates on the official forum, presumably the place where stakeholders go to discuss such matters.
To any casual onlooker, STEALTH looks as good as dead: year-long delays, sporadic updates, zero presence in the official forum.
Now, in February of 2018, and with another summer™ soon™ to come, I ask myself.
Will #bitshares ever respect the rights of the individual when it comes to matters of financial privacy ?
Or is it bond to remain a tool of mass-surveillance and financial control?
At a scale that the legacy banking system it threatened to replace could only previously dream of.
If so, what a shame.
What a shame.
