I think one of two things are happening here:
- The fork really is ready to go and Matlack and company are dragging their heels due to perfectionism.
- It’s not ready, and it’s a long way off being ready due to severe defects that will take a long time to fix.
I don’t know which is more likely. The total silence from the team other than to tow the party line and claim it’s "coming soon" should be disconcerting for investors. It could be the case that they’ve run into a severe problem and don’t know how to communicate it without spooking investors.
Then again, long silences are pretty commonplace with this team. They were silent for most of last year after their big gamegrid announcement in April 2019. They’ve never been good at communication, and have constantly said they’d improve and then done nothing to actually do that.
