In his latest AMA from Toronto, Charles Hoskinon, CEO of IOHK, the development team behind Cardano’s blockchain technology, has stated that a full, formal announcement will be made over “the next week or two” on a new community management structure for the project.
Responsibility for wider education and growth of the Cardano community had previously fallen under the remit of the Cardano Foundation. However, since last week’s announcement of the Foundation’s removal as a formal partner of the Cardano initiative, questions have been raised about the implications for the project’s longer term PR outreach.
IOHK to Create Community Management Arm
Whilst Hoskinson has stated that details are yet to be finalised, he did nonetheless appear to point out that part of the solution envisaged will be for the creation of a new community management team within IOHK itself.
The move should spell good news for followers of Cardano who have been known to express frustrations in the past specifically in relation to communication from the project’s developers. However, it is also understood that Emurgo – the commercial arm of the Cardano project – will also make its own arrangements for its community management.
The changes likely imply an overall general improvement in communication going forward with a more embedded community structure model for both Cardano’s development and commercial arms.
