I have been sitting here for a while – reading through posts, articles, twitter feeds, and social media in general to try and take in all the different views and consider them with an unbiased outlook. As many of you are fully aware, I have been on this project for a long time and it is very hard for me to not just automatically defend my baby when there is criticism.

A few days ago Verge (XVG) suffered from a timestamp attack wich allowed the exploiters performing the attack to mine Verge effortlessly with a super low difficulty.
