NXT is a full network. Indicium is a DAC project being built on top of another network. Too many participants would become unmanageable at this stage. We are quite comfotable with the results of this funding process, especially considering that we were fully prepared to be bought out by a single entity, a possibility that did not seem to occur. As the board has final say over all business decisions and the blockchain mechanics are determined by a well distributed coin like Peercoin, we are in a vastly different position than efforts like NXT which seek to produce a decentralized PoS network.
