Thank You @gumshed for your integrity and you are quite right. In fact friend, you have sparked some deep thought and questioning of myself, my motivations, and reasoning.
Im sure you can imagine the negativity or pain, or agnst ive felt and to say Decentronland wouldnt be a “fuck you” to Ari would be a lie. However, I am reminded, by your statement, of who I am at the core, what my simplistic beliefes are and I remembered how I explain the universal laws to my children.
The Universe is much like a battery, an abundant source of energy and manifestation both positive and negative. I dont feel it neccessarily distinguishes between the two. Meaning It is unaware if the energy a person casts is negative or positive. It simply and effectivley recieves the energy, multiplies it and sends it back and only the person who cast and now recieves this energy and manifestation truly knows if it was positive or negative as it left the heart.
I can honestly say with conviction that for Decentronland to be successful it must be done with positive emotion and not one of disdain, anger or revenge. For a solid year I carried that sting of betrayal and after investigation, I had enough evidence to win a civil law suit and wreak havok if not completely tank the dcl project. I never filed a suit because, 1.) I still hold Esteban in very high regard. Ive had many deep conversation with him and he is but a puppet in the grand scheme of the centralazation. In fact its as if I can feel his shame and sadness about it. 2.) The community, I made alot of friends, met some of the most brilliant and creative minds in that community and I did not want the weight of collateral damage on my heart.
I am going to build DecenTronland and I am going to follow the business model and mission statement of DCL because, a.) it is a successful and smart plan. b.) because it is a great and scaleable dapp for the TRON network. c.) the community deserves it.
The name DecenTronLand, to me was an awesome usage of TRON into a known and successful product. It just made sense.
Thank you for your candid reply as it reopened my third eye.
I will no longer promote Decentronland as a fuck you to the central land. I will however still offer the districts a free district. Here are the major differences for Decentronland…
1.) The platform, property, will not be an excel spreadsheet of 10mx10m. It will be an open source mmog world from the epic store unreal engine assets marketplace.
2.) Property will be parceled and zoned just like a state would zone land. (Industrial, commercial, residential, recreational and conservation). Smallest piece of property is 1 acre.
3.) it will be an agnostic world wherein user created assets are plug n play.
4.) Decentronland will colaborrate with all the other tron dapps to provide opportunity to Decentron vendors and residents.
5.) Be a perpetual epic treasure hunt. As new and exciting ideas and tech flurishes from the creative minds, in the Tron Network the treasure pool will continue to grow… we will provide exposure to new exciting tech via the epic treasure hunt.
Will it piss off Decentraland? Yes. Why? Because it will start decentralized and remain decentralized. Because it will shine because of the community. And the more successful it is the more angry they will become. But, I shall not taunt them, rub success in their face. I forgive them and shall pay them no mind. What they have done to themselves is far more disgracefull than anything you or I could ever do.
Most importantly, I need to figure out how to properly utilize the success to ensure decentralized cloud service to keep the world alive and how to best set up an economic system that enriches the users, is a viable contributor to getting homeless veterans off the streets and restore their sense of worth.
If you remember, im not a developer, coder, programmer, hacker. Im just an old guy who was a Marine and then Safety/Compliance engineer. But I am an Aries thru n thru, a man of principle and integrity. I am committed to VeTronsLLC. DecenTronland and SciliTronValley. I start the Founder Institute in 6 days to incubate and accelerate these ideas. And to be honest, Im scared to death. I dont want to fuck up a fellowship opportunity and Im wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy over my head. This you can count on with me. Consistency, i mean what i say and i go to the grave fighting for it.
