I’ve really enjoyed latest AMA with Alpha Gaming DAO (and I suggest everyone to listen to it, it’s available in ama-recordings channel of Alpha Gaming DAO discord).
I think I finally get what are you trying to build. And that’s really different that I initially thought and I think many more make same mistake. But that’s partially because situation is indeed really confusing, maybe @father you can make some clarifications on this either here or in upcoming AMA.
The problem I see so far is that the Product team is trying to build (Colonization Framework) is NOT the same as a first (Mars Harmony) and second (Mars Polygon) framework applications to say so. However to public the Product is presented as Mars Colony i.e. most people “buy” not what the team is doing, so to speak.
This results in a lot of confusion. For example then colonist express their questions about colony development you often appeal that it’s up to colony to decide how to develop and what to do next, because they are in control etc, and you are only building the Framework. However team is still involved in working on Colonies, so that is not entirely correct. And honestly I don’t really see colonies could advance without team support in any forseeable future.
Suppose one colony decides to have a simple 2D-game style gamification part, and other colony complex 3D-game style gamification part. It’s not possible to satisfy both and so team would not be capable to do both. That’s the part there colonies must hire their own teams do develop what they want. But I almost sure noone here really wants this. That’s not the governance and independence I want. I don’t believe that without original team over-governance and coordination (like bringing proved to be good parts of one colony to the others) it’s sustainable.
So maybe team should be split to more distinct parts that is building Framework and other ever-growing (because there will be more and more colonies) part that is overlooking all the colonies. I want some sore of guarantee that team will not leave the colonies by their own at some point.
I know this all may be a bit confusing, but that’s because it is and I think a lot of miscommunications are caused by this too. I just scratched a surface of potential problems caused by this “product” duality. But the core problem (for now) is that many of us invested in front-facing “Harmony Mars” product Framework application but not the Framework itself! Which is the main product. In fact there is no way we could invest in it. There is no “global” project token.
Hope there is a chance team could clarify on the questions I mentions and my understanding of the situation overall.
