I believe all of us with our full name are running the very same risks you have. Actually for a few of us in IT & Finance it’s much more difficult to expose ourselves then any other profession.
Lately some of us took it even a step further and cardanized our social media profile (private and even professional!). It’s an another level of commitment surprisingly very few peope took.
One difference I see is that Ambassadors also have the title “Cardano Ambassador” attached to their actions. They should act as role models and have to take full accountability & responsibility for their actions as they officially represent the Cardano venture on a different level then anyone else from the Community. It’s just impossible to have the same level of responsibility & accountability with a nickname versus your full name. An incident last month showed how important this is.
Second issue might be once performance based incentives will be put in place (they really should be!) and there is any form of ADA compensation for the work of Ambassadors, you can’t legally pay peope on a nick name for tax and other compliance reasons.
Finally any current or future potential conflict of interest is much easier to identify with a full name vs a nick name.
Don’t get me wrong, I fully acknowledge & enjoy your work, your articles a very well written and bring a fresh perspective and believe you absolutely deserve the Ambassadorship, but such roles should come with certain expectations & limitations (which also reduce risks), where anonymity is just not accepted.
I am surprised how the Cardano Community Team was fine with this, but it’s not the first time they surprise.
To reveal your full name was one reason you left the GoC back then after a week, I hope you will change your mind this time or maybe I am just wrong and anonymity is all fine and the above reasoning is weightless.
For the record you are not the only anonymous Ambassador.
Anyway keep up with the good work!
