I agree with your suggestion Paul. Guess it really boils down to time. What is a fair and equitable time table for new Eavers to adjust and engage with others before investors start selling due to lack of activity? Why even mess with percentages, make it simpler ~ put a lock on selling new shares for ‘x’ period, just like the stock market does for IPO’s ~ can’t sell during the cooling off period, however not as long as the stock market (6 months I believe).
