>> Hello Catheryne and the Grin Community at-large.
>> I’m glad to hear that you have been able to confirm Dan Boneh as a speaker at Grincoin U.S. and thank you for all the wonderful work you have been putting into organising this wonderful event. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend, so I hope the recordings will be of good quality.
>> Commenting on your use of shame for those who purchased developer tickets without being actual developers themselves:
>> Grin is an massively important development for humanity on this planet. To exclude people because of their profession at this stage is very sad, and reeks of pre-judgement. - It is not possible to know what is the heart-intention of those who have bought tickets. - It is quite possible that committed and well researched investors are precisely what is needed at this point of time.
>> Market-based reasoning would suggest that those who are willing to commit money first to attending are the most dedicated.
>> My suggestion is that behind your statement of shame is the fear that some developers who would want to come will miss out. I can see this as a valid concern for an exclusively developer focused event.
>> Instead of the use of shame, maybe reflect back on yourself? Could the underlying fact be that there is a far greater market pressure from investors than developers at this stage?
>> Either way: if you are determined to make a developer focused event, in an investor dominated environment; you will need to build a bias into the system. Your technique of having general-availability tickets (without bias), then using shame for a exclusion methodology is not the community-inclusive ethos that I love Grin for.
>> After all, ain’t we all here for the development and great success of Grin, developers and humans alike? ☺️
>> Note: If you actually are a developer: go buy your ticket first. - Or your will be out-competed in this ticket market.
>> Note: if you are in investor: understand that the content of the even will be technical and do should do your homework and study so you can comprehend what is on offer. - Take the opportunity to build connections to developers as having many more developers sponsored by investors would be a huge blessing for Grin overall. (And help secure the development of your strategic position in the market).
