blundertwink Posted December 7, 2022 Share Posted December 7, 2022 As I mentioned before, NovaQuark's CEO is speaking at a metaverse conference. I personally think the CEO's posts and opinions are very, very relevant to the future of DU. Again, I don't want to upset any mods for posting information from a public LinkedIn post -- I post this because I genuinely believe it is highly relevant to DU's future and direction. If this isn't something that's allowed, please let me know. What's telling to me is the last paragraph where Abboud talks about "online noise fueled by a simple lack of information"...this is exactly the attitude that typifies web3 and crypto enthusiasts and that same attitude is highly visible in how DU refuses to engage with the community or process feedback in general. People that actually work in tech and understand what blockchain is ask enthusiasts "why is blockchain superior to centralized systems? why do you keep insisting it is the best tech for every possible use case...?" and they don't have any cogent answer because they don't actually understand the technology. DU will never fix itself so long as NQ's leadership insists on truly being "the Metaverse Company" -- just wake up and face the music. The metaverse as a concept is a silly fantasy and that online "noise" is not a "lack of information", its a wake up call. For what it's worth, these are the topics Abboud himself will be giving a presentation on. He wouldn't know a thing about "how to develop a sustainable metaverse environment", but whatever. To be honest, I can't think of a better word to describe this other than "Carnival"...the Metaverse is silly and web3 has few viable use cases...get over it and focus on the one product your company has, the one product people have spent the last 8 years working on. This is just my opinion of course...but in my view, NQ's leadership has done an immensely, immensely poor job at being engaged in the development of their own game. From my (admittedly limited) perspective...it seems like the leadership is more interested in concepts with no proven viability in business simply because of their personal passions instead of developing a game. If I were an employee at NQ, I'd be extremely annoyed that leadership keeps pursuing an idea with no proven business viability simply because of their personal beliefs. If this is the company they want to be, they should be that company...stop stringing people along with DU and figure out what the heck NQ is actually going to do for revenue...because this "we're a game company but not really" idea is not working.
