tl;dr: if you vote pro BRI your vote is against your own investment.

I encourage everyone to vote against BRI if you don’t want this project to die like ZCash did. When you are getting that much money nobody really wanna work. It only will lead to higher salaries of so called “rock star” devs (such people are just snake oil salesman). At some point zcash scammers have been dumping $500,000 a day from their 20% block reward tax, who the hell will even try to work productively if you are getting that much money every minute? ZCash is dead, AE will die too.
They already ripped us off with insane block reward, now they need up to 20% cut from it and nobody is gonna report expenses here. Keep in mind.
Once they are getting block cut they will increase spending of current funds then they will switch to accumulated mining taxes.
Just keep in mind, any ICO firms owners can write ANY amount paycheque to themselves. And that exactly what they will do if you give them an access for long term recurring supply of money.
Instead they must stay with current funds and pump their own AE bags . It’s a game theory here, essential part of pump and dump scam, that’s what whole crypto is. If they will get a cut from block reward they will be happy with any price around current and even lower and any further “governance” result will be predicted as well.
