I thought about brands and how ordinary people perceive them.
If you look at successful projects showing a steady upward trend - Bitcoin ( Satoshi Nakamoto ), Ethereum ( Vitalik Buterin ), Tron ( Justin Sun ), Ripple ( Brad Garlinghouse ), BNB ( CZ ), etc. - behind each of them is a specific person with whom the project is associated and whom people know and trust. Dogecoin recently = Elon Musk.
Such a leader was also in NEM and the project showed excellent growth dynamics - Lon Wong. His management and business style is not the subject of this discussion. But the fact is that NEM was in the first 5 on CMC and there was no person who would not know NEM. What do we have now?
Looking at the current dynamics of the NEM project’s development, it cannot be put on a par with the above projects and many other developing projects and call the dynamics positive. On the contrary, against the background of the past bull market, had negative dynamics.
I am in no way trying to underestimate the contribution to the development of the current team. They did a great job. I want to emphasize that NEM/SYMBOL needs one strong leader who would be known throughout the crypto community (not just NEM community). So that his name is instantly associated with NEM / SYMBOL.
It will be interesting to read what do you think about this?
