In a shocking development, the Lumeos community has just been informed that its co-founder Mr. Ali Ayyash has passed away yesterday.
Lumeos is an EOS based mobile app for social surveys that rewards its users with LUME tokens.
The project was progressing fantastically with a daily interaction among its community on its mobile app. But for some days Ali was not available. A few days back, its other co-founder Mike Lin informed in its Telegram group that Ali is recovering from some health issue and he will return to work soon.
And today he informed about his untimely death while recovering from surgery after a car accident.
Ali Ayyash was the lead developer of the project and he was very passionate about it.
It was only last month that LUME got listed on NewDEX Exchange and about a week ago LUME tokens were transferred to EOS wallets of Lumeos app users. Since then LUME has steeply fallen in its prices.
Issues like staking of LUME etc. needed immediate attention but Mike informed that Ali being the lead developer, his input is essential to resolve / manage issues like these. Mike also had some major announcement for the coming days (like launch of Lumeos 2.0 and other initiatives) but he didn't want to steal the credit from Ali and wanted Ali to announce these new initiatives at an appropriate time.
But with this unfortunate incident, Lumeos has lost its most important man at helm. Ali's family is discussing with the Lumeos advisors and investors for the next steps for the company. However, the Lumeos core team seems to be committed to advance the project in the next few months.
A detailed update about the Lumeos project is expected at the end of this month.
Although it doesn't seem appropriate to ask such a question when the project is grieving the loss of its founder but given such a scenario, I'd like to ask your investor mindset, whether it's the right time to buy LUME or it's time to sell at whatever prices the market is today?
Right now, many condolence messages are pouring in from the Lumeos community in the official Telegram channel. Ali was a community person and was loved by one and all.
May his soul rest in peace!
