On Jared taking a sabbatical

What is he even on about?

Well, after having been involved in this space for a long time, you start to see:

So Jared is leaving DigiByte?

Not exactly.

Is this just an exit scam?

I had to have a bit of a chuckle when I first heard this, because it unfortunately shows the expectation people have predominantly around ICO’s, 100% pre-mines, huge founder fees or block-rewards etc

Where does this leave DigiByte?

Well, blocks still continue to be added to the blockchain. You can see this over at DigiStats:

DigiByte Core Organization on GitHub

What does the future hold?

Well, like I mentioned before, DigiByte will be forever grateful to Jared. You can’t “step down” from the position of Founder, he gets that badge for life.

We may eventually need to tweak this DigiFact, but I think for now it’s still good!
  • Project improvements in the DigiByte Pipeline
  • Building developer SDKs
  • Merging improvements from BTC Core into DigiByte
  • Help with bugfixing
  • …and any other way that you may be able to contribute!
