Disclaimer 1: I'm not a Decred dev and I have nothing to do with the project (other than being excited about it). Disclaimer 2: I'm pretty pressed for time and english isn't my first language - so please excuse the poor wording of this post. We all know that the number of scam pump and dump altcoins is quite large. Unfortunately these scam coins undermine the general trust in altcoins. I think it would be of value to gather some forum thoughts on what people think can be done to gain the trust of early adoptors - to give them good reasons to believe that Decred isn't another pump and dump scam coin. Personally I think that it would be nice elaborate the possibility of a 'pledge'-document - a document where the creators of the coin pledge to refrain from the typical scammy acts we've seen in a number of scam coins. This pledge-document could then be signed, hashed and included in an early tx (with the actual doc on Github). Cryptocurrencies do not have a backing issuer in the form of a state or government and that's great - but having seen all these pump and dump scams, with early adoptors being hurt in the process - I think that it would be nice if Decred was backed by the 'word of sincerity' of it's creators. Please share your experiences and any ideas about what you think would help Decred gain peoples trust in a space filled with scams and abandonned projects. Cheers!
