Devs have nothing to do with it. I am proud of the devs who are working on this, as they have worked on world known projects for big companies and are I dare to say they are the best in the field.
What we have here is people waiting on ct, overvalued, right out of investors pocket money for which they get crumbs trading platform, which they hope will save them from cm fiasko (and all knights who say Ni I dare you to open cm statement on the predictions how much money you should be earning now). That with some kind of strange appeal that ct/cm leader has, which draws securities to their site (promises and bribes, which are well known and directly observed, same as with pushing some strange cryptos like anon coin, which they mined for lot but you never saw it) is the answer why people not participating more in our site.
As well we don't spend direct money on advertising while we feel we can improve our site a great deal, which we are working on now. We don't spent money received from dumping our shares on being vip supporters and stuff like that. What we do is we work hard to bring a good product, where our delivered promises (all can say something but then fail at it, its wide known fact) and steady platform speaks for itself.
Add to that the magnitude of ltc/btc lost on previous exchanges, people are weary of where to invest and how to do it. No one wants to fell cheated or risk with hard earned cryptos. We understand that and not trying to force them or bring the dirty ways to fight the competition. As well we don't have countless zombies who were fooled by false promises, who act as ambassadors and floods the topics. And as you know the psychology of mass works against us in this matter.
All we can do is always deliver what we have promised, do it on the highest level and keep constant communication and customer service at the highest level. I think that speaks for itself most of the times.
And yes, after the rework we will go more than just staying passive, we just don't feel that not earned stability and professionalism should be rewarded upfront, or hyped alot. As long as we can see that we are staying on the course of highest level of professionalism we are happy. When we feel that the platform is ready for full hype, as we delivered what we fully can refer to as "platform which belongs in this world" then we will go for it. For now, we delivered a working stable product, which we are constantly improving and doing it with the help of community, listening, applying, improving.
As well as we are doing everything we can to be fully legal. Cannot say more at this point, but I think within 2 months you will be surprised.
