Yes I have been patiently holding and waiting like a loyal subject waiting for his king’s orders. But sometimes the most loyal of subjects need to hear from his king to know if he is still there.
The value of Aeon also comes from the trust the holders have in smooth himself. He is part of the Monero development team, which is one of the best in the cryptospace. If that trust breaks apart, so will the value of Aeon.
I’m still here, but please do not call me “the king”. That phrase might be called ‘damaged’ in the greater Monero community at this point (if you don’t know what that means, you’re lucky).
We’re steadily working on the rebase. It’ll be done when it is done. I’m not going to make promises on delivery schedule of a volunteer-driven project.
Going forward we may consider restructuring things a bit so further progress can be accelerated, allocating funding for dedicated developer resources, etc. But right now AEON just needs a bit of patience to get to a good foundation first.
