Overall I think this is as positive step and I have other concerns and that comes down to a strategy of adoption.
Having a clear and researched view of how the IC intends to achieves it’s ultimate goal is paramount ie. A business plan.
Having this in place should essentially give us an idea of where we would see natural demand for the ICP token coming from, not taking into consideration speculation.
What is the strategy of adoption? And how attainable is the overall goal.
Having a step by step implementation plan would be incredibly useful imo and something the community could lean on for guidance.
First step being - which features does the IC currently have that differentiates from our competitors, which could help to bootstrap growth in the short to medium term?
Leading on from this, what is the value proposition of web 2 Vs web 3, which really affects the end consumer or an entreprise business? And how can this promoted?
Sometimes I feel this project has extremely ambitious end goals but literally no plan in place on how to get there
Heres a rough first guide on how I see things progressing
- First killer use case. BTC and ETH intergradation - as this is taking longer than expected - should there be more resources allocated? Getting this overline is critical. We all know that so whats being done about it. If BTC is nearly done then how long until ETH?
What can be done the devise usecases for the above? Can the gigabrains at Dfinity help? Are we reaching out the Ethereum community for advise?
Can grants be substantially more allocated to help create a vibrant development in this area. I think we could do better here to bounce ideas and engage with external communities
Overnight we could tap into two of biggest liquidity pools and probably the most accessible.
Inticing experienced teams of developers, to try and create companies, which actually create real revenue and not just amateur outfits who want to profit from boom and bust / get rich quick token launches. This comes down to clear explanations of the value add of building on the IC and also web 2 Vs web 3 usecases. More of a slow burner but worth the effort due to sustainable income in the long run and more chance of creating a viral application.
Entreprise - what is being done here to see whether this is actually a viable use-case?
I don’t see any partnerships or at least any interest from commercial businesses looking or at least researching building on the IC
