Here is my .22 $ADA (Equivalent to 2 cents of the time I am writing this) With the news recently released on Libra, I was overwhelming with all the information from all Crypto news outlet; it was a great opportunity for me to learn more about FB’s coin. At around the same time, I saw Charles’ tweet about Shelley test net and I was like “Dayuum” all great news at the same time. On the other hand, as an $ADA holder, it was a marketing disaster for Cardano since the Libra took all the spotlight from us and no doubt that we can compete with that…it was a very unfortunate event …damn bastards!
On Libra, I have read many posts, comments on how it’s becoming a threat to our current technology like smart contracts and stuff but come one you guys; competition is great, competition gives us challenges to better ourselves. We are always talking about adoption, spreading crypto currencies to the world and who’s better than having FB doing that for us? With its reputation and more than 2 billion users I think it’s is better way to bring adoption, smart contract, blockchain technology than spending 4.5 million dollars on some dinners. In addition to that, FB also brought more big faces to the game than any crypto coins combined; here are some that invested in Libra:
(Visa, MasterCard, Lyft, Stripe, Ebay, Spotify, Xapo, Calibra, BisonTrials, CreativeLab, PayPal, Coinbase, Mercado Pago, PayU, Uber, Iliad, FarFetch, Andreessen Horowits, Booking Holdings, Kiva, And some more)
Now, hold on! Just don’t kill me yet, … I am not trying to promoting Libra here…because in my opinion, Libra is not that much of different from a central bank and that’s what we are all trying to stay away from,…I am just trying to say that this is an opportunity to show the world especially the old school minds that crypto currency is about, blockchain is about and technology is about, it’s an evolution and revolution and nothing that can stop it.
For those who always thought that “My coin is always better than yours!” it’s time to prove that your coins, your technology better than others. For myself, I do believe in Cardano, its technology, its missions and the teams and I just hope that they can delivered. So, please excused my clumsy writing but what are your thoughts?
