The strength of a community can be measured in different ways. For example, it can be all about the numbers and how many members it has. Or maybe it’s about the individuals that make up the community and the strength of their conviction. It could even depend on how a community is organized, and whether or not all the power is concentrated among a few, or distributed among many.
The eCash community is still young, but I believe it has the potential to one day be seen as a strong community no matter how you measure it. Over the past year, it has been growing slowly, but surely, by building a community that isn’t full of doubters, but believers. Like-minded individuals who understand the importance of what eCash is building and how it can change the world.
One thing that makes the eCash community unique is that it isn’t just programmers and cryptographers who count themselves as members. It’s regular people like me, people who have everyday jobs, people from all walks of life, people who are dads, and moms, looking to create a better future for their children. There are eCash community members in just about every country in the world, of every age group, with varied backgrounds and talents.
This community consists of people who are drawn to this project because they see it for what it really is, a hidden gem in the truest sense of the word, because eCash supporters aren’t the type to be easily fooled. From what I’ve seen, eCashers know the importance of honesty and hard work. They don’t give up easily, or expect something for nothing, while also knowing how to have a good time.
That so many eCashers have stuck around during this bear market is evidence of their conviction. They have faith because they realize that this project is led by skilled and experienced engineers who are focused on solving the right problems. They understand the roadmap, the incentives, and the mission of creating global electronic cash.
It’s said that it takes a village to raise a child, and I see eCash in much the same way. For this project to succeed, it is going to need all the help it can get. And I’m not just talking about finding more engineers, but all those who share an intense desire for liberty. Because in the long run, this project can’t rely on only a few, but must depend on the strength of the crowd willing to stand up and never back down.
I hope XEC can earn a spotlight in the Binance community showdown because I think what the crypto industry needs is for more attention to be paid to projects with strong fundamentals, not more ponzi schemes. I want to see interviews of people who are actually moving the space forward rather than backward. People who have integrity, and care more about their users than their egos.
With only a few days left in the competition, the eCash community has managed to climb all the way up to third while beating out much larger projects that for the moment have much larger communities. But why be satisfied with third? Why not first? It’s time for eCash to stop aiming low, because when you’re trying to change the world, you need to aim as high as you can.
I know that winning this contest can’t be seen as a replacement for hard work or technical progress, but what it can do is attract more people whose values and mission are aligned with that of XEC. People who want to contribute and help make this project a success in whatever way they can, regardless of their background, or status, or whatever hardships they’ve been through in their lives. Because what ultimately matters to them is freedom, not bullshit.
If you are new to crypto, or someone simply searching for a new and interesting cryptocurrency project, eCash might be exactly what you’re looking for. A project working on some of the most advanced blockchain technology in the industry with a network that combines the power of Nakamoto consensus with the speed of the revolutionary Avalanche protocol. A project backed by passionate supporters who are here because they share the same goals, and not just fighting the same enemy. This includes a core group of holders who have demonstrated their trust in this project and put up almost 90B of XEC to help secure the network even before staking rewards have gone live.
But don’t just take my word for it. All you need to do is search for the evidence yourself. Check out the code, the roadmap, and of course the community. A community that doesn’t believe in forcing others to do something they don’t want to, but gives everyone the freedom to act in their own self interest. A community built on voluntary interactions between its members that can result in everyone being better off, and not being forced to live in a world where there are only winners and losers. If you’re someone who wants to help build the future you want instead of just gambling on its outcome, the eCash project might be the perfect project for you.
