Since you only just joined the Community you probably missed it, but we are a private company.
Decentralization and open finance have nothing to do with infringing on the privacy of people’s earnings. Is this the new FUD in town? Oh boy, then our Community is in for a treat!
The Nash salary ceiling is the founders’ salary, and since I can talk about myself: I cost significantly less to Nash than I did to Schlumberger. My tokens are not liquid, I will only have a great return if the platform is a success in the next couple years – as it should be.
I could go over dozens of other points, this FUD will never work because the actual truth is that this alignment with Nash success is what we aim with every employee. Yes, we hire based on personal recommendations, from founders and non-founders, we have been very fortunate to have that in the engineering, marketing and business teams. It is a strong signal of commitment and belief in the company, this people work harder than I could ask - something it seems you can’t understand - I feel specially great when one employee leave a company to join us, then later other former colleagues look for Nash to do the same.
Since you are probably not aware of the cognitive dissonance in your comments, I will explain. You complain about the cost-effectiveness of our investment in the referral program given the MVP, and at the same time you want us to invest more in promotion. Do you want us to spend more money or less?
This also expresses a strong misconception about marketing. Marketing is in fact the least costly department at Nash. It is made up of only six people today, and is called internally “marketing and communications”. It oversees five things: PR and outreach, events and sponsorship, social media and promotions, and support.
This encompasses a lot: all investor relations brochures and material, all emails and chat replies from support, all events – from closed ones like the EU Parliament presentation or development sprints to open quarterly reports – all images and videos on Instagram, Twitter and YouTube, all articles and opinions written for the media, all participation in sponsorship programs, all videos and articles in the knowledge base, and finally everything branded Nash (or NEX), from adhesives to being featured in Forbes. These are all the result of the combined work of the same six people or fewer (in fact, the team only had three members until more recently). I list these things because I have seen people complain about the “marketing” of several projects in the space, from NEO to LINK, when it is clear these people don’t even known what a marketing team does.
Have we invested as much as we should in promotions? No. In fact, I think we have invested more than is ideal. It could have been a bit less, but we made the best decision based on the data we had. As for you, it seems you can’t decide if it was too much or too little.
I originally was not going to reply, given the sheer absurdity of your post, but decided I wanted to leave these points in writing.
The one thing that rubs me up the wrong way is contesting our integrity. I work hard every day so if we go up or down we will always be an inspiring example. If you’re asking these kind questions you can gfto and take them to your favorite scammy project, not here.
