Hi there, from a long time listener (and first time caller) of the project. Just leaving an observation tag that occurred in the moment (April/2023). It’s easy for outsiders to offer opinions without knowing the reality of the situation within the project, but assuming crowdfunding is not an option, and project has not attempted this, maybe try: Nomura Japan, AgBank China and UBS Switzerland (in that order). After all, there is a global arms race going on in computing that is only just beginning to heat-up with CBDCs & CBDC Monitoring/Audit AI and Blackrock’s proclamation in 2022/2023 that ‘Tokens Are “The Next Generation For Markets”’ – not cryptocurrencies but the underlying smart contract facilitating token systems.
The trigger for the observation came from a scene from the 1997 movie, Contact.
To paraphrase the scene:
“Look, all I’m asking is for you to just have the tiniest bit of vision. You know, to just sit back for one minute and look at the big picture. To take a chance on something that just might end up being the most profoundly impactful moment for humanity, for the history… of technology.”
Usual disclaimers apply: This is not legal advice and this is not financial advice. This post is a random off-the-cuff observation that occurred in the moment.
