As a NEM fan I feel the need to express some discomfort with the lack of updates when it comes to development, Catapult specifically. I Approve of and agree with the viewpoint we do not want to hype, and let the solution speak for itself. It’s the main reason I got interested in NEM in the first place. NEM seems the real deal where other projects seem a hollow shell.
I also am comfortable with the notion ‘Catapult is ready when it’s ready’. And, I don’t doubt dev’s are working hard.
That said, in order for the community to regain confidence things are happening and on track some form of updates from the dev front are needed. Short & consise progress updates: what’s happend last week, what’s on the table for the coming week, something like that. It doesn’t need much but can make ALL the difference.
We should not forget that while hype is not what we need the project does require community backing, which might be lost if too little information is shared.
Love to hear your opinions!
