just for the record, I understand the dev is busy, but we’re all (besides the degenerates) busy so it’s not fair of me to equate “lack of response from the dev” with “disinterest from the dev in having a whitepaper”, but I’d just like to reiterate … my offer was to write a whitepaper for venomdao with as little assistance from the dev as possible, and all of it for free. You won’t come across many (or any) people in the near future that will offer technical writing skills for free. It’s a fairly useless skill to have, which I acquired during grad school, but there are only a handful of people in any given community capable of producing a high quality technical writeup even for pay. I’ve written and published 3-4x more peer reviewed publications than the average PhD student, and all those do for me at this point is fill up a couple pages on my CV - my point is not gain bragging rights, but just that this is a very uncommon and unusual offer, and I wish you’d seen it and considered it, dev.
Unless we’re just counting on FOMO’rs to flock to the platform and do all of their research after putting their life savings into viper, I suggest that there be a significant focus towards attracting “smart” investors. By that I mean the average investor that will scan through lists of tokens, and judge their legitimacy and value by #1 the whitepaper, #2 development docs, and #3 data with which some form of technical analysis can be run on.
Personally, the whitepaper is the first thing I’ll look at when I look into a new token. If the whitepaper either looks like dogshit (example: bullshit whitepaper written by 6 year old or doesn’t exist, chances are, I’ll move on without thinking twice. I’m lucky to have found this platform, but if I’d come across it on a website like CMC, I wouldn’t have ever joined since it lacks any official whitepaper or even a deck of slides
So I still I give dev the benefit of the doubt, but you got a free offer to strongly legitimize your platform and make your current users even happier, and you didn’t take the offer. Best of luck, and again, not necessarily too late to message me if you still have any interest.
