i removed the FastNet from benchmark (reason: FastNet had big problem on queue, when it not firing the queue still push until the queue stores is empty so it may break others when benchmarking)

also fastnet2 is now v0.0.3

It’s funny how you released FastNet2 for no particular reason when BridgeNet2 is also in the works. It just offers all the features that BridgeNet has but it’s just a copy. Not saying it’s bad to recreate stuff, but looking through the code it looks similar, and you released FastNet2 for no reason.

You are trying to push the narrative that code was copied, even thought the only thing you showed was code that is a required config file…
