The Culture of our Industry Sucks but The Technology is Awesome!

What has been going on in our industry is sad, but not surprising. It is sad that majority of the investors that came to the party late have suffered significant loses. Furthermore, among those of us, who have been investing in our industry for many years, we have seen the accumulation of a small fortune only to see it vanished – sometimes at a total loss as in the cases of disappearing exchanges, (CryptoRush, MintPal, AllCoin, and Cryptsy,) developers abandoning their projects, and scammers taking full advantage at every turn.

While I continued to believe that ICO is the best capital formation tool – allowing for full global participation from micro to large investment, it has been abused with great disregard for existing security laws. With ramped-up SEC enforcement actions our industry is now at risk of a pro-long self-inflicted slow down with diminishing retail investors.

This is by far the most lawless industry that I have ever seen in my 40+ years as an entrepreneur. When I did my first industry research, exactly five years ago, my first reaction was that “I wouldn’t touch it with a ten-foot pole.” That conclusion was based on the nasty wild-west culture of our industry. And it has not changed much. But I have faith that it will. Law and order always prevail. But it will not stop those from throwing themselves in self-destruct mode as we are seeing in our industry one more time.

Decentralized entities are leaderless and cannot be controlled by individuals or groups of individuals. As such, it can be chaotic, as we are seeing in the current case of Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin – causing great uncertainty with unruly volatilities. This will scare away even more retail investors, destroying any wishful thinking of mass adoption soon.

I give up my retirement five years ago because of my unwavering conviction that the technology that led to the birth of our industry is awesome. While the culture sucks, with great leadership I believe that it can be changed. That has been the firm commitment of DNotes since its launch on February 18, 2014. We have always been steadfast on our commitment to do what is right, executing at the right time, and doing things the right way.

We are proud to have built a culture of trust and respect based on the fundamental belief that mass adoption of digital currency can only be achieved through the inclusive participation of everyone working together.

This includes our commitment to close the gender gap by encouraging and assisting women to participate in the digital currency space. That commitment led to the founding of CryptoMoms in April 2014, months after DNotes was launched.

Great ideas and projects always evolve and get better. CryptoMoms is now evolving to become “HERO” We are expanding our missions to be inclusive of all the women worldwide, enabled by hyper-connectivity. Hero is non-political - designed to promote entrepreneurship and transformational technologies for women of all ages. We are committed to the belief that knowledge, entrepreneurial endeavors, and a positive mindset for responsible self-empowerment hold the key to empowering women to close the gender gap and reach their full human potential.

While our industry struggles in a confused state, behind the scene at DNotes, great strives are being made every day. We will stay the course on our clearly defined path in building an inclusive trusted digital currency for everyone.


Thanks Alan, great article. The amount of commitment required to stick around and see a project through in this industry is staggering, but in the end it will be well worth it.

And thank you for that commitment, it means a lot to all of us who are doing what we can to help make DNotes a success! So, about being lawless, I agree with you but, I also think it's more perception than reality. I would venture to say, DCEBrief excluded, that we have the worst, most biased, profit centered and useless news sources I have ever seen. With a few exceptions, they are ALL basically worthless and if printed on paper, would be relegated to the supermarket checkout line.

There are no editors, no impartial sources, no checking of self proclaimed "facts" and many times, even no relevance to what actually may, or may not, have happened. It is a proven fact that many of these sources will print whatever you present for a fee and call it "News". What better way to manipulate the overall sentiment of the industry? I want to harm my competitor? Just pay for a dirt article, true or not, it will be printed.

We really need to take this bull by the horns but it won't be easy. Most people are blind to this kind of manipulation or just don't care. Perhaps they think it's harmless or, actually believe everything they read but, complacency equals agreement and support for this activity and that is hurting us all.

There is something you can do to help and that is to call them out on it when you see this or recognize something you know is unproven or a down right lie. Most of these outlets have a comments section, most use DISQUS as an immediate third party posting solution for direct feedback and allow Twitter, Reddit, LinkedIn, Telegram and others for sharing your opinion. DISQUS accounts are free, sign up and post your opinion or, call them out when they are wrong or shilling for money, it's not hard to tell.

I know it's not much but, it's easy and quick and your comment may well shed light on something everyone else took for granted. Every little bit helps!

PS: I'm not shilling DISQUS! They are however, the most convenient way to be heard Grin


Indeed, there are a ton of issues surrounding the cryptocurrency news market. As recent reports showed, more than half of the industry is pure pay for play. When I suggested to a friend from another project that some of the larger news sources probably charge ~4k for an article, he replied "Tim, I know as fact that it is a lot more than 4k". As some of the undercover expose showed, the pay for play system warps public opinion and entrenches a system where the largest media outlets get to choose which projects become big, and which do not -- all based on how much money they were paid. For the most part, the manner in which they were accomplishing this (50% were prepared to blatantly shill a project without listing it under the sponsored article section or accompanying tags) would be completely illegal and an affront to journalistic integrity anywhere else.

As the original expose said -- it is brand coverage disguised as journalistic reporting. It means that the definition of 'news' become suspect, and the media outlets blatantly shill many projects and profit on information that will lose their readers tons of money.

The expose found that half of the largest media outlets engaged in the above behavior (and that was on first contact).

Wondering what DNotes is all about? Here’s the basics:

What is DNotes?
•   DNotes is a digital currency with a purpose: to serve as a real currency that people can use in their daily lives - unlike other digital currencies that focus on solving niche problems, with no plan to become a real, usable currency.
•   The DNotes goal is simple: achieve mass adoption and become the world’s first accessible, inclusive, and financially empowering digital currency that benefits everyone around the globe.

What are DNotes’ Benefits as a Currency?
•   DNotes is managed as a business – but not controlled as one.
•   DNotes success is driven by a profit-generating company, DNotes Global, created to promote mass adoption, protect the currency, and ensure sustainable growth.
•   DNotes’ unique CRISP savings program rewards DNotes owners with 0.5% interest, every month
•   DNotes offers staking rewards for stakeholders – at 2% a year.
•   DNotes provides blockchain invoicing features to simplify merchant acceptance and adoption of the digital currency.

What Benefits Does DNotes Global Provide?
DNotes Global protects DNotes and its stakeholders, promotes mass adoption, and creates value and utility for the digital currency, including a fully integrated ecosystem.
The company provides a unique cross-ownership model, where DNotes will have 25% of DNotes Global (pre-dilution), while the for-profit business maintains a stake in the digital currency.
DNotes Global generates profit, creating intrinsic value for the DNotes currency to help create a “floor” for the digital currency’s value.
DNotes Global has plans to build a long-term competitive advantage by offering services that utilize DNotes. That strategy will also help to facilitate awareness and adoption of the DNotes currency.
Long term competitive advantage DNotes Global will provide in offering services that utilize DNotes.

What’s Next?
Fully compliant Reg D 506 (c) crowdfunding followed by a Reg A+ Mini-IPO.
DNotes Payment Solution Integration into Existing eCommerce Platforms
Cold Staking Implementation & More

DNotes 2.0 Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What is new with DNotes 2.0?

A: DNotes 2.0 is a major improvement on the original DNotes blockchain. The new blockchain will allow DNotes and its partner company DNotes Global to achieve its objective to connect DNotes to the modern world of finance and commerce. The new blockchain is faster, more secure, and consumes only a fraction of the electricity. It also allows custom invoices to be created and attached to transactions, and changes the economic incentives of the network to one that encourages savings with the switch to the Proof-Of-Stake algorithm, and paying 0.5% interest on balances that haven’t moved from a wallet address in a 30 day period (~6% per annum).

Specifications

There will be a soft deadline where DNotes mined after that block will not be redeemable for 2.0 coins:
4/16/2018
Block# 2180897
133,574,552 Will be the total swappable amount of DNotes we create
+20,000,000 Allocated to DNotes Global, Inc for Development & Growth Fund
153,574,552 Total DNotes 2.0 Created

The next update (TBD) will include:
Deferred Staking

Q: How do I swap my coins? (after April 16th)

A: The DNotes coin swap process will now be done through a private fork of the legacy DNotes blockchain. We have created this fork to ensure that legacy DNotes holders are still able to swap their legacy DNotes for DNotes 2.0 long after the deadline, in the event they missed the swap. This also ensures we will not be accepting newly purchased or mined DNotes, protecting our users and network.

In order to swap your coins, you will need the following DNotes v1.3 wallet, which you can download here:
http://dnotescoin.com/DNotes/dnotes-qt1-3.zip
You will need to copy your wallet.dat or wallet backup file to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\DNotes1-3 directory, open the wallet application and allow it to update.
Next, you will need an address to send your legacy DNotes in to for the coin swap, you can generate a legacy address with the following instructions:
Create a DNotesVault.com account if you don’t already have one.
Login to your DNotesVault.com account, and click the HISTORIC tab at the top.
Click Create Address, and send your DNotes to the address you just created.

Coin swaps will be processed once a month until further notice.

Q: What is the cutoff date for mined DNotes that can be swapped to the new DNotes blockchain?

A: We have set April 16th 2018 as the soft deadline. No DNotes mined after this date will be eligible to be swapped to DNotes running on the new blockchain. We will continue swap DNotes after that date, however the process will not be as easy and will take more time. Any DNotes 1.x purchased on exchanges after the 16th will not be eligible for the swap.

Q: Will DNotes 2.0 be listed on new exchanges?

We are currently listed on:
http://mercatox.com/exchange/NOTE/BTC
http://stocks.exchange/trade/NOTE/BTC
http://www.nlexch.com/markets/notebtc
http://bitebtc.com/trade/note_btc

Beta or Future Exchanges we are working with:
http://blockbid.io/

Q: Are the new DNotes 2.0 coins worth the same as the old coins?

A: Yes, they are worth exactly the same. However we can not predict what price movements will occur at exchanges once DNotes is relisted using the new coins.

Q: I have Mac or Specific Linux OS, will there be wallets for these?  

A: Yes!
We currently have Windows / Mac / Linux Mint / Ubuntu Desktop wallets at DNotesCoin.com. If you need something else, please let us know.

Q: Where is the block explorer?

A: http://chainz.cryptoid.info/note/


Staking

Q: What is Staking?

A: Staking your coins helps to support the DNotes network, and the network currently pays out roughly 5 DNotes every minute to one address on the network based on a probability that centers on how many coins the user is staking with as a percentage of the total number of coins being staked on the network. The DNotes network pays out ~2% of the total number of coins per annum. If 100% of DNotes were being used to stake on the network, then by probability each user could expect 2% growth in the number of coins they have. If only 50% of coins are used to stake, then those users could expect approximately 4% growth that year.

Q: Can I stake my coins on the DNotesVault?

A: You cannot currently stake your coins that are on the DNotesVault, you will need to withdraw your DNotes 2.0 to a local wallet and stake your coins from your local wallet. We will in a future release incorporate cold staking, which will allow you stake your coins while they are safely tucked away inside the DNotesVault. However, we do not have an ETA, it will be one of our highest priorities for next upgrades.

Q: How do I stake?

Disclaimer: It is recommended that you properly secure your computer and wallet, as well as make proper backups, before attempting to run your own staking wallet. Failure to properly secure your DNotes may result in loss or theft. If you are not familiar with the process, please start off small and familiarize yourself with the process.

You will need to download the DNotes QT wallet here: http://dnotescoin.com/#Download

Install the wallet (and we recommend creating a backup, after encrypting your wallet)
Go to settings, and then ‘encrypt wallet’. Enter your password twice (and do NOT forget it, or you will not be able to access the wallet and we can not help you).
Go to settings, and then ‘unlock wallet’, enter your password, and select “for staking only”. This will prevent any transfers from being made from your wallet without the password while you stake your coins.
Soon the arrow at the bottom will turn green. This means that your coins are now staking.
   
Video: http://youtu.be/bR66LWPRzAU

Q: How do I get the most out of my staking efforts?

A: There is no trick to staking efficiently. The factors involved are your coin weight versus the network coin weight and coin weight is the number of coins currently staking. The age does not matter, nor does how you divide or move your coins around.

Q: How much can I earn staking?

A: That depends on how many coins you are staking and how many coins are being staked on the network. The blockchain distributes Current Total Coins / 525,600 * 0.02 every block, or every 60 seconds. You may calculate how often you are chosen to receive the block reward by dividing your network weight verse your weight. If network weight is 100, and your weight is 5, then you would be chosen for block reward 5 blocks out of every 100.



CRISP

Q: Can I get CRISP reward AND stake at the same time?

A: Yes, the system is designed to allow you to receive CRISP on a wallet you are staking

Q: What is the CRISP reward structure?

A: CRISP periods are every 43,200 blocks (30 day target). Payments start 10,080 blocks (1 week target) from the end of the CRISP period.

Q: What do I need to do to earn CRISP?

A: Keep your coins in the same address for the full CRISP period 30 days, set every 43,200 blocks.

Q: When will I receive CRISP payments?

A: The next payouts are as follows:

May 1 - Ends first CRISP period.
May 8 - Payout starts. (Virtually no one will receive this payout)
June 2 - Ends second CRISP period
June 10 - Payout starts

Roughly.

Q: Do I get CRISP payments at the DNotesVault?

A: Yes! You get CRISP inside the DNotesVault, or at any address you control, such as a Desktop wallet. Though I won't suspect you will be able to get CRISP rewards from the exchanges or other online providers.

Q: Where do the CRISP coins come from?

A: The blockchain, these are newly created coins and have now become part of the new coin distribution, just like the staking reward.

Q: How do I earn the interest reward?

A: Our Cryptocurrency Investment Savings Plan (CRISP) payouts occur approximately once per month. All coins that haven’t moved address during that month period will accrue a 0.5% interest, which compounds to roughly 6.17% per annum. If you move your coins during that time, those coins will not receive the interest for that month.

We have created a trading bot, currently for use with STEX and Bittrex exchanges (more in future) and it is ready for live testing. The bot is very simple to learn and use, as well as beneficial to the markets. You can create static ping pong grids.


To understand how this works, let's look at a single example bot:
In this example, we'll set the supported exchange = Stex
Enter the market with a = Buy
Available market = NOTE_BTC
Buy Price = 0.00000280
Buy Amount = 100
Sell Price = 0.00000300
Sell Amount = 100

What will happen is it will create the initial buy order for 100 DNotes at 0.00000280. That buy order will remain there until someone sells into it and that order is completely filled. Once the buy order is completely filled, it will create a a sell order for 100 DNotes at 0.00000300. Once someone buys into the sell order and the sell order is completely filled, the bot will then recreate the buy order for 100 DNotes at 0.00000280. It will continue this cycle forever until you cancel the bot.

You can have as many bots as you want. Building a grid of bots going up and down the buy and sell the price range on the buy and/or sell walls. As the price fluctuates within the selected range for your grid, you will be able to make a profit as the bot cycles.

You can make a profit off either side of the trade, or even split the profit by adjusting your buy and sell price. Using the example for buy 100 DNotes at 00000280 and sell 100 DNotes at 0.00000300, you would profit in BTC. You could profit in DNotes if you bought 100 DNotes at 00000280 and sold 93.5 DNotes at 0.00000300 (also accounting for fees).

You can create customized strategies and grids for the markets you are interested in trading. It currently works with any market listed on STEX or Bittrex. It is a simple yet powerful tool for trading that anyone can learn and use and start bot trading in cryptocurrency.

Most importantly though, this is the demonstration for DNotes Pay Software. Which is an automated paywall that can be integrated into any software, automatically accept payments in DNotes and allow limited time based use of the software, requiring no interference from the payee or need for a third party in the transaction.

If you are interested in helping us test, please send me an email at [email protected]

A couple notes on security for using a trading bot:

You will need to enter your trading API keys into the trading bot, and secure them with an encryption password. Much like a wallet, if someone gets access to your wallet files and your passphrase, they have the ability to access your private key and steal your coins, or in this case access to your trading keys to trade on your account how they like. The communication from the bot to the exchange is both secure and encrypted. But again, if you have an infected PC, you are still at risk. So please be sure you have up to date anti-malware / anti-virus protection on any machine running a trading bot.

When you create your API keys, be sure not to include withdrawal options. This will protect you against your coins actually being withdrawn from the exchange in the event your information is compromised.

We have created a trading bot, currently for use with STEX and Bittrex exchanges (more in future) and it is ready for live testing. The bot is very simple to learn and use, as well as beneficial to the markets. You can create static ping pong grids.


To understand how this works, let's look at a single example bot:
In this example, we'll set the supported exchange = Stex
Enter the market with a = Buy
Available market = NOTE_BTC
Buy Price = 0.00000280
Buy Amount = 100
Sell Price = 0.00000300
Sell Amount = 100

What will happen is it will create the initial buy order for 100 DNotes at 0.00000280. That buy order will remain there until someone sells into it and that order is completely filled. Once the buy order is completely filled, it will create a a sell order for 100 DNotes at 0.00000300. Once someone buys into the sell order and the sell order is completely filled, the bot will then recreate the buy order for 100 DNotes at 0.00000280. It will continue this cycle forever until you cancel the bot.

You can have as many bots as you want. Building a grid of bots going up and down the buy and sell the price range on the buy and/or sell walls. As the price fluctuates within the selected range for your grid, you will be able to make a profit as the bot cycles.

You can make a profit off either side of the trade, or even split the profit by adjusting your buy and sell price. Using the example for buy 100 DNotes at 00000280 and sell 100 DNotes at 0.00000300, you would profit in BTC. You could profit in DNotes if you bought 100 DNotes at 00000280 and sold 93.5 DNotes at 0.00000300 (also accounting for fees).

You can create customized strategies and grids for the markets you are interested in trading. It currently works with any market listed on STEX or Bittrex. It is a simple yet powerful tool for trading that anyone can learn and use and start bot trading in cryptocurrency.

Most importantly though, this is the demonstration for DNotes Pay Software. Which is an automated paywall that can be integrated into any software, automatically accept payments in DNotes and allow limited time based use of the software, requiring no interference from the payee or need for a third party in the transaction.

If you are interested in helping us test, please send me an email at [email protected]


Bot is working as stand-alone program or as browser plugin? I must say that I'm not familiar with this bots, so I'm sorry if I just posted a stupid question Cheesy

No worries at all Amadeus, you are always welcome to ask any questions. It's a standalone application that runs independently on your windows desktop machine.

As Alan has mentioned we are working on Hero, the next evolution of CryptoMoms. If anyone is or knows someone who could be interested in highlighting their own profile, company, project, or organization with an interest in empowering women in this new digital age and would like to contribute by writing about it, please send us an email at [email protected].

We do have strict editorial guidelines. Hero was created to be a platform with the intention of empowering women with positive reinforcement and encouraging women to participate in areas where they are underrepresented in this new digital age by providing information, articles, and news.

Tons of interesting news coming out amongst severe recent price decline.

The bot is really cool -- being able to trade any pair on Bittrex and Stex is a very handy tool. It's a great demonstration of how DNotes pay can work, and I can only look forward to a shop full of partner products where software companies add DNotes pay as an additional accepted currency for their product.

Yeap, I lost from the drop, but I believe that from that type of terrible falls, I will learn lots of things from them, and those falls will play important role in my life in future.
Dnotes pay worked fined.  Grin

Welcome motienvolam, the markets have had a significant impact on everyone recently. I hope you get the opportunity to recover from your losses.

Thank you for testing out DNotes Pay, we greatly appreciate it!

Thank you, motienvolam,

I certainly hope that there are lessons learned from this worst correction in our industry’s history. Market value declines of (90% to 95%) are common. Blockchain Hedge Funds may be losing 50% to 75% of their invested capital, with some rumored to be closing shops.

It is not pretty, and the worse is not over. SEC law enforcement on ICO tokens could drag on for a few years. This will put a damper on our industry.

I went forum hopping the last few nights, to get a more personal feel of the state of our industry. Painful – to put it bluntly. Many of the bitcointalk forums I frequented before are almost deserted.  Many seemed to be caught by surprised, but the level of blame game and infighting appeared to have subsided. Obviously, the level of energy has declined noticeably. 

Reasonable people should have predicted this. I am sure more than a few of us did. But overall even reasonable people could be wishful at time. If we were one of those to get rich quick, we could always come up with a few reasons to make it justifiable.

In the real world, true value cannot be created out of thin air. Great ideas are not worth much. (I price them at around a dime per dozen). For a pretty good idea – I would pay for your cup of coffee if you would pay for the tips.

Our industry has a serious valuation problem – sometimes it defies logic.  Unproven ideas, with the right promoters have been valued by the $100s of millions, sometime $ billions.

Love and hate are divided by a thin line. It can be taken to the extreme end of the spectrum, in frustration, fear, and confusion. Although we are losing retail investors by the wave, I hope that we will not ended up with more haters. We must stand up to protect the technology which I truly believe presents a generational opportunity for everyone worldwide.

As I have said before “The Culture of our industry Sucks, but the Technology is Awesome.”

Since the day of launch on February 18, 2014 one of our missions was to cultivate a different culture – one of trust and respect. We have done very well in that regards and will continue that tradition for generations to come. We are most grateful to all of you for your support and inspiration to make this possible.

Possible lessons learned:

Ideas by themselves are not worth much. Don’t just follow and be sold on hype and pipe-dreams. Do your home and focus on facts that a verifiable.

Investors do not like uncertainties. It leads to desertion and extremely caution.

We live in a world governed by the rule of law. And that will not go away.

Trust is invaluable in financial services. If we were to disrupt banks and financial services, we must be more trustworthy than them. So far, our industry has done worse, not better.

We believe that the technology is awesome. The industry may be taking a pause, but at DNotes, we are going full speed ahead – taking a very different route since day one.

In stead of showing off “great ideas” we have been building great projects CryproMoms (evolving to become “HERO”) DNotesVault, CRISP Reward, DCEBrief, and my book “Improve your Odds – The Four Pillars of Business Success, and more.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to You ALL!

Great post Alan, and thank you for always keeping it real!

Many of us have seen this coming for a long time, and I  am very proud of the work that has been done by our team to educate people on the risks of investing in cryptocurrency, and in particular ICOs. It was not an easy path to take. When it seemed like the rest of the world was promoting often illegal and/or fraudulent ICOs, we were willing to take a stand and do the right thing.

As far as what will happen next, I believe history will repeat itself and only the strong will survive.


This article is from 2011, but is even more relevant today:

5 Successful Companies That Survived The Dotcom Bubble

The dotcom era was a speculative bubble formed by the rapid rise and interest in internet companies. During the five years leading up to the peak, many businesses were born with the primary focus of gaining market share through brand building and networking. The theory was that out of a collection of like companies, one was bound to "make it", and businesses and investors alike were more than willing to put their bets on the table. Getting big fast was key to survival, as companies raced to acquire substantial market share, sacrificing profits along the way. With an unprecedented amount of individual investing, the boom pushed the Nasdaq Composite Index to an all-time high of 5132.52 on March 10, 2000.

On March 10, 2000, the Nasdaq reached an all-time high of 5132.52, after which the index faltered until October 9, 2002, having lost 78% of its value.

The next day, the bubble popped and one company after another imploded, fueling an internet sector freefall that lasted for the next two and a half years. Businesses and investors were forced to acknowledge that venture capital and initial public offerings did not guarantee income or make up for the lack of sound business plans. With the spectacular rise and subsequent crash of many of these dotcom companies, few were left standing after the dust had settled.

As always, it’s great to see you on the forum, Chase. And thanks so much for your support.

Thanks for sharing the dot com article. It is very telling. We should have learned but we didn’t.

What would I do if I were a partner of a Hedge Fund with some dried power left?

I would be working twice as hard to identify the 10 most likely coins to be left standing after the dust settled and I would go all in. The technology and industry are here to stay. What is different is that there will be many more new players and it’s going to be massive.

We are well positioned to be an industry leader and strategically built to weather the storm. We are always advancing along a well-defined path because we have a clear vision – mass adoption of DNotes as the inclusive trusted digital currency.

It's a great article Chase.

I think that in so much of all this, people are all asking the wrong question -- it isn't 'why has the market tanked', but rather 'why did it go up so fast in the first place?'.

That makes for a rather complicated answer that includes over-excitement, crappy business models, and a lack of finance knowledge. I also wrote an Op-Ed today that hopefully will drop soon that talks about ICOs as a commodity of people who think that you can get two dollars out for every dollar put into a system without consequences.

Tons of projects are beginning to falter, most of the reserve currencies that were used to raise funds (Eth / BTC / Neo) are down 75-95%, and projects are shutting shop because they have no earnings, and no reserves to continue functioning. Add to that the SEC's decision to be the world financial police, and many teams are shuting shop or temporarily closing their doors. Just today I saw that a NEO-based exchange called 'Aphelion' closed its exchange due to compliance issues, and low volumes and prices making them completely unprofitable.

Being the last ones standing in this industry would well position anyone to become the next big thing in business -- if you survive, you'll be one of the few with a good reputation to make use of going forward.
