Why did you have to create Komodo? Why could you not just improve BTCD?

We saw that Zcash had a superior privacy technology and we want to use the best technology. Thus we decided to fork the project and create a new coin.

Our vision also needed a way to secure weak chains, thus we developed dPoW. The dPoW implementation with notary nodes required capital. We could not have launched this network without the Komodo ICO.
