As many of you probably have noticed, on January 31st, the first 33 Cardano Ambassadors were announced as part of the Cardano Ambassador program. Since the program was launched about a month ago, community members were able to nominate people for ambassador roles such as meetup organizers, moderators, content creators and translators.
Besides the newly appointed ambassadors being congratulated and thanked for their contributions, a critical discussion arose. One of the critiques was about the fact that some of the ambassadors that were selected have anonymous accounts. These concerns were described throughout this (very long) thread, and partially reiterated here.
Some of these concerns reflected on me personally, as I was selected as a content creator ambassador for the Medium articles that I wrote on Cardano, such as my latest piece on Cardano’s security, and my name was repeatedly mentioned as an example. Personally, I strongly disagree with the notion that someone with an anonymous profile should not be able to become a Cardano Ambassador. I have therefore written down my stance on the topic in this article, in which I conclude by offering to give back my ambassador status if a majority of the community indeed disagrees with an anonymous account being selected as an ambassador.
As opposed to the community members that strongly emphasized their concerns, there were actually also people that disregarded these concerns. To get a better feel for the ratio in which both opinions are represented in the opinion and include the opinion of ‘the silent majority’ that may not explicitly share their opinion in comments, I propose the following (anonymous) poll.
Should anonymous profiles be allowed to become a Cardano Ambassador?
