The rumors of BrightChain’s Death may have been premature

I’ve been trying to get into pony for a few days, it is just not well supported enough in IDEs for editing a modern, integrated manner, and doing so without a lot of headache. If we want a sustainable ecosystem, it has to be sane in terms language support- but Pony is just too young/esoteric/niche- for now.

I had planned on abandoning BrightChian in favor of Prometheus, but I was not far off with some of the code and I am going to keep going down that path. At the end of the day the blocks should be roughly compatible between the systems in theory and there may be a path to working together. Both chains are built off the same block principles.
