Interesting!!! Looking forward to this


I’m quoting all this because I’d love to see how well it goes. You have a very interesting proposal which promised a lot. If you could deliver them, it will also help someone like me. I look up to it.


@bobelr Lol…I’m still trying to understand your reason behind quoting the entire proposal, sounds funny to me, I’m probably just an overthinker, Lol…Thank you regardless.


Looking forward to your implementation


Yeah!, It is expected. And new ways of doing things might sound funny but this is to avoid issues and arguments in the future. Not only on your proposal I dropped this. Many sages would propose something different and write different things entirely. At least, quoting is a reference and to remind everyone what they promised to deliver.


This proposal looks awesome, and I’m looking forward to seeing the steps in creating the dapp :slightly_smiling_face:
