In the midst of what some are refering to as the worst economical crisis since the greate depression over 80 years ago, with banks and other financial institutions going out of biz left right and centre and they really expect anyone is picking up 10% increasing in business in this sector due to EV certificates?

I guess they can live in hope, wonder how many companies using EV certificates have lost 100% of customers because of it :)


How would a company lose 100% of its customers by spending a few hundred more dollars on an EV certificate? If they were in that bad of shape before they bought the certificate, then they shouldn't have bought it. How can you reasonably blame the technology?
