There is no hard push. There is excitement and enthusiasm. You might take into consideration you own distrust of the crypto market. If you don’t believe your investment is good or wise then your negative observation probably seems right to you.
The company is still in early stages, just rewrote it’s entire code base including creating additional code in Haskell. Cardano hasn’t even launched on the main net yet. The negativity existing in the community is unfortunate for all who are exposed to it’s corrosive effects. I expect Shelly will be launched in early April. I do not believe they will meet their goal of the end of March.
I suspect there will be a selloff where many weak hands will fuss and fret and seek to get out. We are preparing to buy if that happens.
Cardano’s launch of Shelly will set things up for the staking pools which are necessary for the decentralization of Cardano to take full effect. From this point things will ramp up. The additional features still in development will be pushed and added as quickly as is reasonably possible under scientific and mathematical constraints.
Why some of us believe Cardano is in trouble frustrates me. Everything they are doing is fully exposed to us excluding some proprietary business relationships which are yet to be revealed.
The Cardano project is not being done in some parents garage with a bunch of wild eyed hackers hammering away at their keyboards. The programming is being accomplished internationally in University labs where testing and back testing is taking place to assure the system works as represented. The Cardano Project is not an easy project. The science involved includes solving problems in crypto thought to be impossible to overcome. Yet some of us whimper about the time they are taking.
It is my personal observation as a production engineer from the field of aerospace that this team is working very fast. Pay close attention to why Hoskinson has been saying in recent AMA’s. People are taking their papers and code and adding it to their projects. So if you see other projects beating their chests and hyping their advancements just remember Cardano did the heavy lifting and work to develop the impossible just so other s could copy it.
I personally would have copy written the code and prevented anyone from duplicating Cardano’s work. I believe it was foolish of them to put so much of it out there for the world to have access too. Maybe they will start protecting their work after they get through with the major components.
In my personal thinking OpenSource programming is very much akin to Open borders for countries. It seems to make since until your commercial world start collapsing because of it.
Ate then end of the day and soon in April we will see some very positive activity unfold. If Shelly is launched on time great. If Shelly isn’t launched on time Great. We are buyers. If the staking pools are as good as represented then the more ADA we have to stake the better. We don’t trade and don’t plan to use ADA until it becomes capable of being used in retail.
