First of all, I don’t understand who you are representing at this conference. Are you representing Nervos, yourself, or someone else?
Secondly, what is your goal in attending these conferences? Is it to chat and make friends, do business development and establish partnerships, or to help develop Nervos’ business model? The core relationships of Nervos should be left to the marketing department. How deep is your understanding of Nervos’ core development? If you don’t have a deep enough understanding of development, how do you know that the ideas you hear at the exhibition can be implemented in actual development?
Thirdly, what can you do by attending this conference? Can you deeply understand the combination of the theme and development level of these conferences? Do you know about development? What can you contribute?
Fourthly, I don’t know what benefits your attendance at the conferences can bring to the DAO. Since you cannot represent Nervos and cannot integrate products, business, and development, it would be better for the team to attend. Your attendance will only increase your personal value, and the messages you convey at the conference may not be fair and unbiased. Your understanding and abilities cannot represent Nervos or our community. In that case, it would be more accurate to buy conference videos or rely on official written reports.
I have personally attended many forums just like Affiliate Summit West in Vegas on behalf of myself where I could make decisions on-site such as purchasing advertising or becoming an agent for certain institutions. My friend acted as an agent directly exhibiting their clients there too.
In summary，your attendance at exhibitions is just being an observer or reporter which does not add much value compared with leaving budget for Nervos’ own marketing/product/development personnel participation instead，or simply buying video/texts from conferences.
Finally, considering your support for Tanner’s proposal, “I stand by Tanner’s proposal,” I don’t think your understanding can represent mine. Therefore, even if you attend these conferences, I don’t believe you can convey the correct values to the community. So, I strongly do not support your proposal.
