The blockchain was not purchased.
It is still decentralized and can fork at any time as it is not "owned" by any one entity.
As for the above proposal, it is no "ultimatum", it is an amicable solution that offers everything that is needed by everyone involved.
The biggest winners in it are of course the biggest stake holders, if we look at it from a financial viewpoint.
Yet, the biggest winner will be the person(s) who not only save face, but earn respect from doing it.
Most importantly in my viewpoint, the people who have expressed themselves in that they wish to use both blockchains will be able to do so, without the unnecessary squabbling or negative vibes!
PS. I am only answering questions put forwards to me over the past 2 days.
Not my job to communicate with those who are the decision makers. So I fully agree with you that I am not the guy to be presenting this to those who can make decisions on it.
Yet at the same time, can't tell those I am in contact with, "ask so and so about it, even if it was a solution to the stalemate that I put together". Those that know me will not take my communications the wrong way.
