There are great points raised by Jerry and Saint and particularly salient especially during this down market time.
It feels like a lot of decisions are being made outside of the community – despite this being a community token and us supposedly having voting rights. We invested in WSBDapp and this project for ETP’s and Stonks, not NFT’s.
NFT’s are not a feature or function of Wall Street and whatever goes on there that we are supposedly combating. Yes – they are very topical / trendy and maybe they could be a good vehicle for increased marketing and awareness (although I’m not sure of the synergy / benefit / likeness of investors NFT to ETP).
The NFT idea seems to have come about due to the topical hype and the community should have had a vote or greater input in going down this track – or at least share some justification up front. Unfortunately it feels like ETP’s and Stonks have been side-lined or given less priority while a massive effort has gone (very quickly) into Decentraland, the metaverse, free collectibles and the Diamond Pass raffle tickets.
It has now been one month and 3 days since the discussion of additional stonks was initiated and we still don’t have a vote! At the very least, we should have clearly communicated updates and timelines as to when these things will happen. Set the right expectation and deliver! And what about a performance update on the existing stonks?
Same for ETP’s – it’s been a couple of months or more. Understood there are some back office technical elements to fix, but timely communication and updates are lacking. Just earlier today there is a mid-chat mention on Telegram that ETPs will now be sometime next week, not tomorrow as earlier indicated. It seems it’s always next week…! This came at the same time as the NFT draw being mentioned as being put back – like a ‘o by the way…’ but not formally communicated.
Also, the extension of the Farming / Staking – was always mentioned that the community could vote to extend, but has since been announced as extending without a community vote.
So regarding the point from Saint: “Unfortunately, they could use a better marketing strategy. I do agree that they should involve and nurture this community a bit more. I think the team is doing a great job, they might just be missing a team member with the right core competency for community management and marketing….”
Agreed – and whilst I also applaud the efforts by the team on the podcasts and interviews etc, we need more visibility and effort to actually communicate, market and promote WSBDApp. Effort on Youtube subscriber numbers would help also!
The bottom line - more effort or possibly a better skillset would really help to bring cohesiveness and clarity to these communications, internally and externally across Telegram, Discord, Twitter etc. and less a. feeling of ‘winging’ it.
O and when real marketing???
