Everyone cares about the longterm health and growth of the ecosystem.
The only way to do that is to make sure the Foundation is properly funded with adequate resources to build, hire, market, and incentivize the ecosystem.
Since all of their resources are in native token, making sure the foundation has adequate resources to succeed relies on the sustained price of the token in the open markets.
This is why restoring the value of the governance token by returning the 700M ARB that should undeniably in the DAO treasury right now as well as rectifying clear violations in ethics around open market operations is necessary in the long term health of the ecosystem.
The value of the token doesn’t depend 100% on the action of the founders and the Foundation.
The value of the token is a large part influenced by what the utility of the token can do in influencing decisions of the project.
I can understand that in the short term, this will add weeks of delay to giving the Foundation the funding that it needs
However, I believe this is a necessary course of action for all future token buyers
For those of you with voting power that did not buy a majority of your voting power on the open markets, I would urge you ask your constituency of delegates what their opinions are.
As an open market buyer myself, I personally would not comfortable buying any more tokens long term, and I know many other investors who feel the same.
Please consider the long term health and trust in the token into your decisions
