"Not convinced yet. They're knowledge of computing capabilities certainly seems to be exceptional but they're laggin in dev activity. The network is also not developed and they don't have any partnerships to speak of. Overall, they need to really step up their game."
Today we have to carry the weight of a platform that does not have many projects on our backs, and that is clear to the analysts of our ecosystem.
How much longer will we be postponing these developments?
Are we going to be waiting for more initiatives from Emurgo and IOHK? Let them solve the project adoption alone? Help is always welcome, for both sides.
If Cardano doesn't come out of its bubble, the community will not grow. Therefore, we believe that Cardano can only develop by reaching more and more the big public.
Today, we can talk at a high technical level among ourselves because our group is composed of people who, at least to some extent, have specialized knowledge. However, many people outside our bubble don't even understand the advantages of using a blockchain.
If Mr John who has a small business does not understand how the protocol can change his business, then Cardano will not develop. In order to develop, Cardano needs to attract new people to the community, and these people need to understand how that technology fits into their business and life. This is education.
What I intend to do are lectures and face-to-face seminars for lay people. These people need to see the benefits clearly. They need to measure the real impact that this entire ecosystem can have on their lives. I believe that at some point I will also be able to include the official Meetups in the region.
Our second work front is to train specialized labor for the development of smart contracts and align the technology stack for WEB3.
Developing Cardano is not only attracting more supporters to the protocol, it is also qualifying manpower to program in a new layer of the internet.
It is also important to remember that an investor's education is different from a programmer's education. On the one hand, Cardano's social and financial aspects are of more interest; on the other hand, there are protocol limitations and badly trimmed edges that need to be explored at the technical level.
Here, it is important to remember that it was a technical team, composed of specialized scientists, that opened us to the possibilities of this network. And programmers are the extension of this technical team that will make thousands of implementations in the protocol.
Therefore, we intend to develop workshops for programmers with some frequency. Search for academics and partner companies, explain the philosophy of our ecosystem and what this movement is causing in the world. Topics such as functional programming, Marlow, Plutus and Haskell will be the norm. Without this kind of knowledge, it will be a little painful for the ecosystem to move forward.
