Now is the time to have these conversations as we move into the launch of Symbol. We have one shot to do it right. I hope every community member, team member and partner joins in on the conversation objectively.
First of all nem foundation need new structure. Foundation Council, PR, Communications & Marketing Team, Community Management Team, DEVS team, Operations team. A lot of people always asking Alex for everything, but we must ask not president but head of department Responsible for something. Also Better to have live roadmap with ongoing tasks.
I agree with a lot of the points you’ve made. For months, I have shared with Jag and the leadership teams that I’d like to see things evolve. I think it’s a positive to look at the big picture and understand what we can do now to make things better.
Jaguar0625's Twitter messages were cryptic (not clear) in my eyes. Either he thinks the community isn't self-engaging enough. (A)Or thinks the foundation doesn't engage with the community (B)A -> Someone would need to audit the community of NEM with projects of similiar age and marketcap. Then base a conclusion whether NEM is more lethargic than them. I have a haunch NEM is probably consistent with them (removing outlier P&D coins that might be paying troll farms in India /Philippines to hype their crypto). Publicity campaigns of some sort in Philippines and India might be good places to start (these are countries where it would be cheaper to do and locals understand English)B -> A lot of the offline community seems strongest in Japan but the foundation seems to be full of Anglophones. So if Jaguar0625 is persauded to "decentralize" then an obvious step is to create a different foundation entity for Japan.Or C - Jaguar is just fishing for feedback but isn't looking to change or do anything.
Despite some projects having huge marketcaps - I feel nobody has figured out the adoption formula. I'm still waiting to hear a human say Ethereum ot Litecoin in real life and outside of a crypto convention 😂
Too few open schools have yet been established where scenarios for use can be developed. Imagine if brainstorms about new use cases went nonstop on YouTube. You sit in your chair and mentally participate in some event related to the use of cryptovalues. That would shorten the distance.
This is about how our ecosystem is organized, where can we improve, do we have what we need right now to be competitive in the market (I’m not talking about code, I’m talking about organizational set ups).
Jag is not looking at the ecosystem as if everything is failing and he has to come in and fix it by leading it. He’s getting a pulse on things and saying to everyone — is this the best we can do? Should we evolve the system to meet the future?
