The Cardano Foundation has revealed an outline of creating a decentralized, self-sustaining community.
Elliot Hill of the Cardano Foundation in an article highlighted that community participation of the Cardano (ADA) ecosystem should develop.
According to Hill as the crypto space sees an increased interest towards smart contracts, and dApps, therefore, nurturing community participation becomes extremely important to bring together all parts of Cardano communities like ADA owners, developers, businesses, public institutions, and stake pool operators to create:
According to Hill, it creates a “new paradigm to the highly siloed and compartmentalized communities elsewhere in blockchain”.
The Cardano Foundation aims to be a pioneer for such collaborative endeavors while leveraging itself as Cardano's guiding force.
It also looks forward to enabling fast-track value creation for inclusive and equitable growth of the protocol.
The Cardano Foundation seeks to connect innovators, developers, enterprises, and its existing community to facilitate such growth.
A central point for such initiative is the “upcoming developer portal” that will include content and opportunities for participation by developers and innovators while providing companies the tools to implement solutions on Cardano.
Developers are to be integrated “through the launch of the Developer Portal, which will be a single unified interface for exploring all that Cardano has to offer”.
Also, the community group is focused on “Requests for Proposals” (RFPs), “which award development funds to technical users who can solve complex problems and provide practical solutions to technical challenges on Cardano”.
On the enterprise segment, Hill notes that “outreach is carried out between our senior leadership, such as the Cardano Foundation Council, and members of the business and enterprise community” (which are IOHK and Emurgo).
Hill further added that the Foundation is constantly looking for opportunities to “evangelize”.
