i think that there is no doubt that real names in combination with multi sig would be safer than only multisig. but if this means that we lose the majority of the core team, then i agree that multisig only is - "ok". what i cannot imagine is like anonym community managers can communicate with vc companies, other companies to buy advertisment, other devs to buy a mobile app, etc… communication with perth mine is not anonym as well and i dont think they will sign a NDA.
Devs or other team members do not need to be known in real life on the forums to communicate with other developers, VC's or anyone else face to face using real ID. When the time comes that it is required for someone to come out of the shadows I have no doubt someone will. It's already happened on more than one occasion but who came out of the shadows, the reason they did and the fact the community wasn't told does not matter. What matters is that what needs to be done is being done and it's being done by some very smart and dedicated people and these people are going waaaay out of their way for the betterment of nem which in turn is a benefit to everyone who holds nem.
We are on the ball dude… Pushing for identities to be revealed won't help anything. It will only serve to spread mistrust because mistrust is friggin contagious. You make some valid points but your taking them to the extreme.
In short, those who need to cone out of the shadows Will but they will only be exposed to only those who require to see them. Anything more is unneccessary risk. Just look what happened to the late hal Finney and his family if this doesn't make sense to you.
