What about this way of looking at the problem: Any project willing to be the first to be using Snowdrift is aware of the risk that comes with it and won’t "depend on it right away. Also no project needs to fully rely on us alone.
So while I completely acknowledge the problem exists and needs to be adressed, I think it isn’t that crucial now.
If our experience shows that people do “ignore” snowdrift as a platform and “only” appreciate other projects using it we need to act.
Personally I think we should wait and see if that happens. because if we act on that fear right away we start to distance ourselves from the “we take no fees” mantra more or less. Which may be a necessary! But I’d first act on it if we see it is.
Right now I’d like to give the crowd the chance to prove it actually cares about snowdrift enough to make us sit tight in the high horse of “we take no fees”.
Maybe I’m too optimistic?
