RE: The ChainCoin Message!!
As you said, ChainCoin does have some seriously untapped opportunity and value, albeit missed value but it is there nonetheless. ChainCoin is where Dash got the X11 algo. ChainCoin has nearly every feature as dash, except NO PREMINE.
Not to mention that the ChainCoin Community is an absolutely Model Community in this Contentious and Divided Crypto Community. Its very understandable that this is a coin "dusted of the shelf" as you said, and I think, in time, it will become a shooting star for sure.
If people don't realize this coin's potential, timing, or use cases, that will be their missed opportunity. Patience & Timing.
