Last time I joined telegram basically this guy rodney/needmoney90 banned everyone who said anything bad about cakewallet and from posts on twitter it’s obvious it’s someone from their team.
This is similar situation how blockstream took over bitcoin development and instead of privacy they now have lighting network.
I am not saying this in bad faith or attack someone just it should be publicly known Ruckunium is working for cakewallet, lovera and monerobull also. Nothing bad about Ruckunium, but he is obviosly trying to put to work developer which CCS was declined because he was milking monero community money for 2 years. Monero Magic Fund is cakewallet operation to take control over CCS from monero project. Magic fund is worst funding way because developer must be KYC-ed, imagine that.
Monero.com is another project of this team to be more “official” website then getmonero.org where cakewallet was almost removed from list of recommend wallets. Justin from cakewallet went step further and messaged coingecko to list monero.com as official website, which was later fixed.
For me it seems community is sleeping and not seeing what is happening.

I don’t think they have malicious intent. They even offered to sell their domain at-cost to core.
But I get the sentiment — they’ve gotten pretty big and a healthy ecosystem should have more options. Right now, cake wallet is one of the only usable open-source monero wallets on iOS. We couldn’t really boycott them even if they became malicious, because there aren’t mature alternatives yet.
Maybe the most productive thing for the community to do in response to cake’s dominance is to encourage the development of other wallets? Stack wallet is coming along nicely, and I know there was some noise a while back about adding iOS support to monerujo. Throw them some millineros and help squash some bugs if you can 🙂
Also, the magic fund is not run by cake wallet. There were multiple posts on this very subreddit asking for community members to join the board, and many did. The purpose of magic is to provide a stable funding solution to people who need a reliable, official income source. I mean, what do you think the bank would say if you put “monero CCS” as the source of your income on a mortgage application?
