@unwriter do you know when Planaria's annual report will be released? Incorporation was 18 Jul... so, assuming it would likely be seen. Last I check, you had $1-2M Ausvic Capital, Calvin Ayre, John Coyle, Ken Shishido, Mempool, Persimmon Hill Limited, and Unbounded Capital. Just curious how things are shaping up. Any chance you'll make it available here?
No, planaria is a private company, not to mention it’s a super early stage startup. We operate like any other early stage startups. There’s nothing to gain for anyone by making any of our business operations public.

Copy - understand the startup market. I had never looked into the seed rounds and didn't know Ayre was in there. I'm trying to find a single BSV tool that is popular and useful that doesn't have his hand in it -- to be able to point to independence, distributed control, legitimacy, etc. Thought Planaria might be an example. Still a fan, just a bit bummed... but if it gets you the resources you need... so be it. I suppose that goes back to your post here (new to this scene, so not familiar with your past - just a quick search): https://medium.com/@_unwriter/phase-2-ed6416ef2697

I designed the seed round carefully so that there's no lead investor in the round but still made up of potentially helpful partners. To achieve this, we didn't go the traditional route but did a party round https://www.cbinsights.com/research/party-rounds-seed-vc/ and as a result I am the only board member and the supermajority shareholder of planaria corp. I talk to some of the investors sometimes but they have no influence over the direction of the company. They all trust that I will do what's right.

I often find I'm not as good at reading tea leaves as I think I am. So, while we've got such a small community and I can have direct interaction with the host/mastermind... @unwriter - in that medium post I referenced ("Phase 2") you quoted a 20 Feb 2019 tweet of yours saying most people aren't paying attention and they'll wake up one day to find all the pieces of the puzzle have come together and the world has become a difference place overnight (exact tweet below): https://twitter.com/_unwriter/status/1098242042952593408
Your Medium piece went on to say: "That day is today. Open your eyes." That was 1 Jul 2019. I think there was a reference to a leading blurb on a hacker site (I'm not super tech-competent - so, not really sure I appreciated nuances). Can you help explain for the luddite (recognize that's relative since I'm in a Social Bitcoin Forum right now!) what happened that day. What you saw happening... what's happened since then to solidify or liquefy those foundational beliefs on that day? Time horizons are huge in this pseudo ecosystem war (don't know much about code, but war... I do know something about that!). CSW and Calvin predict a lot about when BTC will crash, or when things will be made clear, or when the Bitcoin name/perception will flip... but the time horizons are always fuzzy, obfuscated, or get pushed out due to 'circumstances beyond their control.' That's why I really liked your solidity in your post "Today is the day!" Looking to understand that concrete momentum shift you felt then and what you feel/see now. Looking to learn. Appreciate all your hard work on this platform and in the community... even if I don't fully understand it all!
