The reason it matters is because the market values it way more than I do and that is opportunity best utilized by the best interests of the broader Gitcoin Community.
How I value the coins means nothing, the market has associated a significant value on them and I and many others believe that that value should be put to work in a better means than to be stuck in Dog Meme coins. (I honestly have a hard time with the fact I have to write this in an online forum to get the point across, around how ridiculous dog meme coins are)
The coins being liquidated to an asset with greater economic utility is the only rational play to be made here, furthermore, having outside parties be allowed to directly vote destroys the value proposition of liquid democracy.
If the AKITA community want a voice in what happens inside the Gitcoin community they are free to acquire one.
To expect one for nothing is foolish.
