Mixed impression.
Missing totally information on where the competitors stand.
Even they are a nice and motivated team it is a very small team and the roadmap is too slow.
It would have been nice to see this 2 years ago but not in 2021 where adoption in several markets should have already been done and has already started for some competitors (eg electronic vote for local elections on Tezos blockchain, stable euro on Tezos too that will be used by a big french retailer in a few monthes)

Let’s wait what they will deliver.
I’m waiting impatiently the updates on the progress.

This timeline appears really very slow in a very competitive and fast moving market.


Discussing this with the NYC meetup group now to see how we can help contribute.


Excellent presentation from my perspective. Why?

  • Clear strategic perspective, and strong execution focus.
  • Strong focus on legal and regulatory requirements and interaction with regulators.
  • Focus on hiring great people and building a dynamic effective team.
  • Demonstrates a clearer understanding of the wider crypto space and competitive dynamics.
  • Realistic timelines
  • Lastly- feels like a good quality, professional enterprise pitch that Fortune 500 are used to.

Starting to see evidence that the Foundation under Fred’s leadership are ready to take their place in the ecosystem and beginning to lead those important governmental and regulatory relationships.

Great work!


Can somebody please explain the governance structure of the Cardano Foundation itself? How are people elected to the Board? Where can I find its annual reports?
