why this referendum?

After successive months of sustained appreciation, even with strong volatility, normal in the initial phase of operation of markets based on supply and demand, the CryptoEscudo ceased to evolve so positively on their path of appreciation, from the beginning of September 2015. This started to happen exactly at the same time as a mining pool, running in the multipool system , began to sell off all CryptoEscudos that it mines in great quantity.

VALUATION, one of the CryptoEscudo goals, is compromised.
Being CryptoEscudo almost always one of most profitable coins to be mined using multipool system mining, because it has a real community of support and because it has a project that everyone, whether they like it or not, recognizes as unique, is usually one of the most heavily mined coins to be sold at any price and as fast as possible, looking for speculative profits based on the advantage of CryptoEscudo conversion to bitcoin.

USE, one of the CryptoEscudo goals, is compromised..
Appears as additional consequence, that the release of CryptoEscudo mining blocks suffer wild swings that make it impossible altogether its use as a viable form of payment - this has to do with the huge variation of mining capacity caused by multipool systems, usually based on cost/reward algorithms too simplistic and therefore with very unpredictable and deeply unstable performance.

SPREAD, one of the CryptoEscudo goals, is compromised.
As a further additional consequence appears the large concentration of mining, ruling out the participation of small-scale miners, who greatly contribute to the spreading and presentation of currency and its many capabilities in their networks of contacts, motivated by their interest in valuing CryptoEscudos of that they participated in the creation, revealing quite important to be able to raise interest, support and use.

The creators of CryptoEscudo - Eugénio Apolo and Ana Costa - clearly supported by the most active members of CryptoEscudo community, understand that accepting behaviors as of multipools, ensures the impossibility of Coin goals in the immediate, even endangering its existence in the long term, due to the complete uselessness of the system for real financial and commercial transactions, according to what shows the many results of other currencies mined by multipools or falling in very long fluctuations of transaction processing. They understand, therefore, that measures can and must be taken, of technical, legal and social character to stop any mining system that harms the CryptoEscudo and delays or compromises its stated goals.

This being an original and unique approach, which seeks to establish limits against speculation and greed as extreme and destructive behaviors, in all similar to those that created devastating economic and financial crises, the creators of CryptoEscudo understand that it must be voted on by all those who already have CryptoEscudos and therefore act as project informal "shareholders" and supporters of its goals.

Therefore arises in referendum vote, the following question:
