Thanks for this feedback and apologies for the delay. There are of course as many opinions as readers, but FWIW we certainly intended our response to be substantial and not personal, despite the original article’s overall tone and the fact that it was publicized without the opportunity for constructive debate between the teams, which we always welcome. We are all learning how to operate in this new and hyperpublic environment, and subsequently reached out to Emin for a productive conversation around his concerns regarding the protocol. Nevertheless, we hold Bancor to the highest standards of positive participation in this important ecosystem and hope you found at least some of the responses relevant. We’ll always strive to do even better, despite an often harsh landscape. Please reach out to us directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’d like to discuss this or any topic further.
