Sorry if I sound like I am beating a dead horse. It’s not my intention. I am just a passionate African (software developer and blockchain enthusiast) in the blockchain/crypto space. I have seen and experienced the sufferings of growing up poor in Africa. I want Africans to massively be uplifted by blockchain applications. A wrong allocation of resources could minimize blockchain/crypto impact on Africans. I know you guys want the same using Cardano.
I agree with all of you that Cardano needs to embrace an aggressive education strategy that will serve as a catalyst for mass adoption in Africa. However, the idea that mass adoption in Africa hinges on retail education of the masses is not an economically viable strategy. Cardano currently has the right strategy. It’s a strategy that I term as the “wholesale approach”. Think of Cardano as a computer motherboard. It is not used directly by end users, even though the masses of end users have computers. The motherboard manufacturer advertises and educates distributors, and computer manufacturers (the wholesalers who create computers and distrbute motherboards). These players are wholesalers who directly use the motherboard. Most end-users buy prebuilt computers without knowing the internal motherboard. The same applies to Cardano. It needs only to educate the DApp developers, smart contracts authors government, and software companies that focus on solving problems in Africa.
