I can only speak for myself, but if I think it, then I believe a lot of the community will think the same.
I trust IOHK and EMURGO.
I see what they achieve. Despite some bumps with Daedelus pre 2.0. They seem to work hard. They fix their product problems over time. They seem to make intelligent decisions. Charles, Sebastian and some others do a very good job explaining what they do on youtube.
I don’t think any of the community would disagree that you (Cardano Foundation) are still the weakest of the partnership.
I either don’t see what you (Cardano Foundation) do, or you STILL don’t do enough given the budget you have.
Whats your output? I see:
- You worked with/paid McCann to do a website, which in my opinion was on average received indifferently. I assume probably not worth the money you paid them. See here : New Website design is terrible. Discuss here
- Did you help with the summit which was a great success. But surely you didn’t code it, which in my opinion is really where the credit is due.
- You administrate the telegram channel and some other social media channels. The channels are administrated well (despite some admins being rude occasionally) and you deserve credit for that, but it’s not exactly the hardest thing to achieve. The last twitter update was July 1st… Your youtube channel has in my opinion meaningless content on there that doesn’t particularly promote Cardano. In fact as a new investor seeing that channel, I wouldn’t invest.
- You choose and pay some ambassadors.
Sorry but this is not enough. You are too quiet. There is too much competition in the industry for this to be it. IOHK and Emrugo are working overtime and what are you doing as an organisation…
Where is your marketing of Cardano. Where is your investment in to DEfi (I realise Goguen/technology isn’t here yet but Plutus playground is). Where are the partnerships. Where is the communicating with IOHK and Emurgo and updating us what is going on.
What has changed since this: ITN vote - Lack of Publicty - Complaint to Cardano foundation
Seems like nothing.
I will be happy to accept that I know nothing about you, and my opinion is wrong but where is your output. I tried to search for it. What is the tangible output that Cardano foundation does. What are you doing with the communities money. Investors look at these things.
I see a lot of corporate spiel, but not a lot of strategy, and certainly not a lot of content or output. It’s positive that you seem professional, but this corporate BS should not be used to avoid criticism or avoid fixing problems.
You in my opinion should be leading the solution to this problem : https://www.reddit.com/r/cardano/comments/iix5bc/cardanos_marketing/
I am not the only one to be concerned. Please check out Ricks youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8gwrgCV5i4
I realise I am just one community member, but I would appreciate an answer to my concerns.
