On the list of uber-difficult challenges ahead of Cardano, I’d like to add this one - how do we transform the Oracle of Omaha’s words from:
"I get into enough trouble with things I think I know something about. Why in the world should I take a long or short position in something I don’t know anything about.”
"I finally see what Cardano is all about and would like to take a long position in it"
He sure as hell isn’t going to become a crypocurrency or a CS expert, so the question then becomes, can you lay out Ouroboros in a presentation in such a way that Warren Buffet could understand?
You wanna talk about stratospheric adoption? Unless we reach these folk, there will be none. Not to mention when you start selling Cardano/ADA, the first thing out of every stakeholder’s mouth is going to be - “how does this thing exactly work, why should I bother, e.g. what’s in it for me?”
I think conveying the semantics of Ada/Cardano/Ourboros is a lot harder than coding it
