Upon translating the above article in english i did find this statement interesting:
“Now, the nebula has begun to let front-line employees make their own decisions, make production arrangements themselves, and make their own budgets. After the official election of the council in June this year and the assets are handed over to the community, the nebula will truly become the nebula of the community. The development direction of the nebula will be in the hands of everyone in the community.”
My response is this:
As much as i find Nebulas to be a very good project and very focused on the technology and governance, i can’t help but not share the level of enthusiasm some do for the choice taken to turn everything community oriented. I cannot stress hard enough how early we are in this space and how infant Nebulas still is, not to mention how tiny our community is if to compare to projects like Cardano, ICON, Zilliqa, etc. It is of the utmost importance for Nebulas to find ways to increase the Nebulas community, whether it be developers, or investors, the more the merrier, and for those supporters to really see the value of Nebulas before we can envision turning the ecosystem into a DAO community governed. It has been mentioned over and over and over many times that Nebulas needs to grow brand awareness by reaching out to Youtube influencers, by being more active on Reddit, by hiring marketing and social media talent to steer the project the right way, because clearly, whatever is being done right now sending multiple tweets everyday isn’t working, and isn’t generating enough attention and feedback and likes.
But now it seems that the community will be in charge of doing marketing, of reaching out to Youtube influencers, of looking for ways to pushing adoption, i say good luck! We are not there yet. Pushing adoption needs to come from the foundation who is supposed to be in charge of growing the ecosystem awareness and visibility and networking with industrial companies who surely will be expressing an interest in Blockchain. Leaving it to telegram and wechat community members will simply not work. I keep reading all the time “just a bunch of geeks”…well this geek attitude and approach Hitters has needs to change. It does not fit or mesh well with the current crypto and blockchain space.
There are tons of different industries coming into the space, businesses, finance giants, healthcare, supply chain, voting systems, these companies will want a sense of business interaction before deploying developers onto Nebulas, leaving it to the community will definitely not work. Mobile Dapps alone will not bring Nebulas to glory. it will not create strong adoption, and Nebulas will be shadowed by much bigger projects, including projects being developed in China. So please, it is time to let go of the geeky attitude and to hire business oriented people, marketing oriented people. Projects like Decred and MakerDAO do not delegate everything to the community. They only delegate proposals to improve the blockchain performance, the security and the scalability of the network. But it is NOT the responsbility of the community of contacting Youtube influencers whom will ask for payment for their services. It is not the responsibility of the community to get NAS onto Trust wallet. Definitely it is NOT the responsibility of the community to getting NAS onto Ledger. It seems like Nebulas employees will do NOTHING once everything is in the hands of the community. So than why raising $60 million on an ICO at $2 per NAS if there are no plans of working with enterprise and business startups to adopt Nebulas. This can either be labeled as a Moneygrab, or it cant be concluded that the initial vision of Nebulas after the first DIP season 1 was a complete failure and destroyed the price of NAS. It seems like NAS tokens are being thrown around with great ease with zero sense of store of value.
I simply ask to know what Hitters and the non-geek business minds of Nebulas or partners helping Nebulas plan on doing to be more competitve in the blockchain and crypto space and to make Nebulas more valuable. I am looking for answers as to why we are not on Trust wallet and Ledger/Trezor hardware wallets. Do you guys remember that time when ETH stayed at $0.50 for 5 years and everyone poured just as much time and effort into the network. Right, me either. Because without the perception of a strong project and in an industry that is very money driven and not innocent geek driven, the goal of a big community will never be achieved. In the end price matters, price is a powerful factor for what to pay attention to. Apologies for the harshness, but it needed to be said. It is time to let the tech team do its thing, and to focus equally on growing adoption of the network, not just throwing NAS like they’re cookies. I hope to get answers not by only Ruby, but by important influential parties of this project with the ideas that are being brainstormed.
