Includes Charlie Lee. Franklyn is a Founding Director of the Litecoin Foundation. Ilir Gashi is a marketer and "community manager".
You must read it yourself to get the full unbiased picture, but here are some cherry-picked messages that should show why I am posting this. Remember it's about 7-8 months since Charlie tweeted that Confidential Transactions should come to LTC in 2019.
Franklyn: I was extremely disappointed to discover that no progress had been made on CT since the announcement, especially when I stand on stage telling everyone it’s happening and we are actively working on it.
Charlie: The honest truth is that no one is interested in working on Litecoin protocol development work. At least no one technically competent. You can’t just throw money at this problem. This is true for Litecoin since the beginning. It has only been me, Warren, and Thrasher.
Franklyn: OK so Warren has moved to Blockstream, Thrasher is AWOL and you? Lets make the record clear we cant string people along
Charlie: I’ve also tried to find someone else to lead the MW project as I don’t want to be the only person pushing this forward. But not having any success. When there’s update, I will post an update. Sorry, but I don’t very much care if people are disappointed if they expect a lot of progress. People need to stop looking to me to make everything happen. It’s a decentralized currency afterall, right? Or is it?
Chris: Well at least we know where we stand. Sad to here that's the case. Was definitely under the assumption that progress was being made
Charlie: Progress is being made. Just not as fast as people like, I guess.
Franklyn: Again its this vague statement of we are researching yet no evidence. This is totally happening guys. I am a director of the Foundation if i dont see it then something is wrong. I have a private chat where i have asked for dev updates numerous time and have zero response. You sit in on these talks that are hidden from me? Its a moral dilema. We cannot ask for money yet privately say theres no dev to pay with it Charlie cant also say we will have CT in 2019 and then say he doesnt care when people ask for updates or expect some progress to have been made. What would happen if i right now told people actually in public Litecoin has zero active development and i havent heard anything from the lead developer in months?
Ilir Gashi: Development is all the parts from start to finish, including research to coding to fixing bugs to executing it. There has been plenty of development in that regard. Is it public? Maybe not. But that's something we can work on as a communication issue
KrlMrks: I think we shouldn't make this conversation available for public
라이트코인에서 개발 진행이 전혀 안되고 있는 상태
라이트코인 찰리리를 포함한 개발자는 떨렁 세명
그중 한명은 다른곳(블록스트림)으로 감, 다른 한명은 다른일로 바빠서 개발 전혀 안됨
찰리리 혼자 남아 있고, 전혀 개발진척이 없다고 토로
