This is an excerpt from Paul Rajchgod\u2019s latest blog post, How soon is \u2018soon\u2019? Read the full piece on\u00a0Medium. \u2018Soon\u2019 isn\u2019t enough? So what is all the \u2018soon\u2019 fuss anyway? It seems that some Bitcoin SV observers believe that when an enterprise or government body announces it is building something on Bitcoin SV, the expectation is it will be live nearly instantaneously as if \u2018announcement LIVE\u2019. We have seen announcements of buildouts from EHR Data, kompany, GeoSpock, Zumo, UNISOT, and the country of Tuvalu, to name but a few, organizations that are growing at fast paces in healthcare, regtech, IoT, payment systems, supply chain, and government registries! But they may not yet be contributing the hoped-for steady stream of transactions onchain. These things take time Why not, the \u2018soon\u2019 crowd asks? Most of these announcements were made months ago! Why aren\u2019t these live yet? The Smiths will tell you why: Because \u201cThese Things Take Time\u201d! (Released as an \u2018extra\u2019 B-side to \u201cWhat Difference Does it Make?\u201d, their third single, January 16, 1984). Please remember that announcements never \u2018LIVE\u2019! For LIVE cannot happen right away; \u2018LIVE\u2019 takes time! Those of you with programmer backgrounds should understand the bottleneck quite well:\u00a0Developers already have their very busy pipeline of buildouts to deal with!\u00a0They already have months-worth of their \u2018swim lanes\u2019, their \u2018sprints\u2019, their Gantt charts of priorities. Then\u00a0the bosses come along and say \u201ccool, now we\u2019re gonna move a bunch of this onto the Bitcoin SV blockchain.\u201d Understandably, this latest project has to get in line behind the others that have to be completed first! Additionally, in many cases, there are workshops to be held, with the enterprise or government in question and perhaps some customers\/constituents\u2026then more \u2018design sprints\u2019, proofs of concept, testing, possibly regulatory and other government body approvals, etc. Let\u2019s not forget the businesses and governments may be working with partners such as nChain, Fabriik, Elas Digital, TAAL, etc., who also already have their pipeline of customers and contracts, whose IT teams have their own \u2018swim lanes\u2019, \u2018sprints\u2019, Gantt charts, etc. and deadlines to meet. Well, I wonder! So\u2026.is it any wonder that these things take time? It shouldn\u2019t be, but some of us have run out of patience and are perhaps distracted by talk of coin prices, market cap rankings, and this or that nonsense DeFi coin.\u00a0Find your focus, dear lost souls!
