Trustless Survey Results

The Trustless Team
July 14, 2022

The Trustless discord has a course system. This system coordinates the community to test out, learn about, and improve the Trustless Currency Protocol. The "Survey" course is a user survey to help the community understand what we all value in defi. A self-aware community allows us to coordinate to make Trustless successful.

There are a few notable takeaways from below: 

  • There are a lot of people in the Trustless community that have experience with Basis Cash.
  • Members of the Trustless community seem to care about decentralization! That is a massive win because decentralization is the core vision behind Trustless! 
  • People care a lot about fast and cheap transactions (no surprise!)
