I think it’d be greatly beneficial for Elastos to make Rong Chen a more public figure. If you look at Cardano, Charles Hoskinson has regular live streams on YouTube to update and interact with the Cardano community. This really adds a lot of trust and shows the community that the lead of the project cares about keeping the community updated, whether it’s good news or bad news.
There are many older interviews of Rong on YouTube, but having a regular, recurring live stream will really have a positive impact on morale. The weekly updates are weekly so I feel a good spacing for the live stream would be bi-weekly (even monthly would be great).
In terms of what channel to broadcast the stream, I think there are several YouTubers that cover Elastos frequently that would do a great job (Jimmy, Blue Collar Crypto, Chico Crypto, Crypto Winning etc.) I think that taking turns would have the best effect since everyone’s audience is slightly different and it’ll create more exposure (or if its possible maybe live stream to multiple channels? Idk if that’s possible).
The content would be talking about progress/news as well as answering community questions. If this gets implemented, perhaps there can be a “question box” where people can submit questions and Rong and the interviewer would answer these questions.
This would require a time commitment of 1 hour or so from Rong every 2 weeks, which I don’t think will interfere with actual development of the tech (since the interviewer or an admin will sort through the “question box” and organize the questions), but it will have a really positive effect.
This could even be part of the marketing campaign. What I mean is, when marketing starts, say YouTube ads, at the end, it can advertise the live stream and invite viewers to check it out for more info.
I’m just thinking out loud here. But if you also think that this would have a positive effect, please give this topic a like and help get this to Rong’s attention.
