When will TF stop baking?
We do not currently have plans to shut down Foundation baking operations but this is a question that regularly comes up in Foundation deliberations, and is consistently being evaluated. The Foundation’s purpose is to support the Tezos ecosystem, and all baking rewards that the Foundation receives will eventually be used to further support the advancement of the Tezos project.
What plans are in the pipeline to increase adoption of Tezos where demand for Tezos tokens (tez) actually goes up? Running other tokens on the platform does little to add value to tez holders, fundraiser backers.
The Tezos Foundation’s mission is to foster the development of the Tezos ecosystem and adoption of the Tezos protocol, irrespective of whether this increases the demand of tez (which is not a target of the Foundation). We are focused on promoting the long-term success of the Tezos project.
Why is TF spending so much money going after the legacy financial market instead of investing in the crypto financial market?
Tezos is uniquely positioned to be the blockchain of choice for financial applications. These applications are currently taking place in both the legacy financial markets and in the burgeoning world of decentralized finance. We are in no way prioritizing one over the other – we care equally about projects like tzBTC, wrapped Bitcoin, and REITbz – a real estate backed digital security issued by Latin America’s largest investment bank. We will continue to promote Tezos as the blockchain of choice both for legacy financial applications and decentralized financial applications.
