TNABC Miami 2022 Monero presence doubtful with 24 hours left until decision deadline

msvblab1’s recent CCS proposal2 has attracted a lot of attention, some support but also a considerable amount of skepticism.

While there were solid arguments made by both sides, the proposal’s expiry date (30 December 2021) and the conference date (mid-January 2022) have prompted Monero core team’s luigi11113 to step in and set a deadline for a decision to be made by Wednesday (22 December):

Unfortunately we don’t have a large luxury of time to make a decision, based on the dates of the conferences (and related, the self-imposed expiration of this CCS). I’d like to see this merged or rejected by Wednesday the 22nd.

Presently, given the weight of positive and negative feedback, and a strong anti-gatekeeper mentality, I lean towards merging.4

Here is why some community members are against this proposal:

Other community members including ArticMine and binaryFate are supportive of the proposal:

I fully support this proposal and in my view should be merged for funding. - ArticMine9

There is no “one” community that could agree on everything, nor is there a fixed pot of money to assign to proposals - the CCS is not zero-sum. For this reason alone, I’d like to see this proposal merged and everyone free to support it if they want. -binaryFate10

It is doubtful at this point that Monero will be represented at The North American Bitcoin Conference (TNABC Miami 2022)11 in this format.

Update: expiration date was extended by the proposer to January 5th 202213.

Update 12/23: proposal was closed (not merged)14.
