100%. Tezos has achieved so much and imo is technically superior to all other projects among the top 25. However, there is not sufficient non-technical communication. People need to understand why Tezos is a better alternative to Ethereum and even Cardano. Tezos Foundation needs to hire professional PR and marketing people to get this done. Being technically superior without adequate adoption will kill tezos.
We are, because we can increase the supply (e.g. inflation funding)
But we are not capable of spending the money that does not belong to tezos
I think this is a great suggestion. If we could implement a treasury smart contract where community has the ability to approve and fund proposals, we can request funds from Tezos Foundation(say 5% of tez at a time) and overtime 100% of tez belonging to the foundation could be used in this manner.
Considering how much fiat and btc TF has, it might not be fiscally responsible to use xtz for this, keeping a diverse set of assets insulates them from market instability- they could wrap fiat or btc as USDtz or BTCtz
I was going to suggest just that, developers wants BTC because is more liquid. If they can unwrap the TZBTC to BTC they will get that liquidity. I don’t want developers to be paid in XTZ and dump XTZ.
I suspect that if this idea were raised for a “coin vote”, easily >95% would signal support.
