Hi, my name is Neal, this is my first post.
I’m a member of a few Defi (Decentralised Finance) forums and wanted to share some data over the last three months of how frequently users visit and how they interact whilst there (ie. create or replies to topics):
The large Defi projects listed here have more than 3,000 registered users, Small Defi projects have less than 400 registered users :
The data shows that the majority of users in large communities are not visiting very frequently and even less are interacting. Whilst the smaller community numbers are better, it is possible that the numbers might go the same way as they continue to grow in size. The question is: why are so many people signing up and tuning out?
Defi is complex – A lot of the material on forums is difficult for the average person to understand.
A lot of information – Although topics are categorized, it is hard to know where to start and how to gain a good overview of everything going on.
Hard to know what the main objectives are – DAO’s (Decentralised Autonomous Organisations) are a new concept still in its infancy and with the larger forums in particular, it is hard to know what a community is collectively trying to achieve.
I am interested to hear the thoughts of others and have another post to make with some suggestions on how to address the issues mentioned above.
Hope I’ve not overstayed my welcome already!
Best wishes from Sydney Australia where I am currently in Covid lockdown
