I propose creating a channel for Astar ambassadors and Astar’s active applications to share recent activities and future plans.
I have been running Starlay as one of the core contributors and was very surprised when it was pointed out to us that there was not enough transparency. Although we have always declared on social media and Discord that we involve the community in all important decisions, including salaries and future implementation policies, it appears that only a limited number of people were aware of this. I want to fight any unfounded insults to the hilt, but we will listen to any constructive improvements from anyone who is serious about growing the ecosystem.
Running a DeFi protocol requires a significant amount of money, much more than what most people think. To avoid hacking, code audits are necessary every time we develop a new feature, which adds to the expenses. Additionally, generating revenue through the protocol is not very promising, and there are also legal risks involved. I have a lot of respect for all those people who are currently running DeFi platforms despite these challenges.
Whether it’s through Slack, Telegram, or a forum, any method of communication is acceptable for me. It can simply involve chatting with each other once a month to report on each other’s activities and share thoughts.
Both ambassadors and protocol developers should share the same desire to develop Aster. I would be happy to create a place where we can understand each other better for the development of the ecosystem.
