Well, I guess some officials do read these posts!
Thank you for your reply Dennis.
Some relevent points have been raised by others on this thread too which is awesome.
To clarify then, if the I.D number that was issued with the Certificate of Asgardia when people first joined is proof of citizenship, then why would anyone actually need to pay any money?
Are you saying if the CF is not paid, the I.D that was issued would no longer be valid? If this is the case, I see a huge drop in population coming!
There is no rumour mill, just a lack of information.
You say this Certificate of Citizenship is a poorly labelled term, however, what's poorer is that it was slipped into an decree via an amendment without any prior warning or notification!
Kinda sly don't you think?
If it is an investment, why not advertise it as such? Citizens would have been much more positive towards it.
As for bragging rights, you can keep them. I for one am embarrassed to even mention the idea of Asgardia to my friends or colleagues. There is no way I would publicly admit to being a part of this until it is widely recognized as legit.
Good luck with that one.
We all appreciate that this sort of thing takes time, and nothing will happen overnight. But a poster on this thread rightfully questioned whether this would ever bear any fruit in our lifetimes.
I think it's important for you as an organisation to supplement the idea of an actual profitable investment by at least providing a real world tangible asset to your potential investors!
I'm sorry, but at current I'm afraid this does seem like a money grab, and it's down to the fact that you have failed to deliver on promises you have made in the past.
No I.D cards, no Cryptocurrency, no UN recognition, no passports and no public recognition.
Just a flag, an anthem, a coat of arms, a website and now a government. Most of these we had circa 2.5 years ago.
There is barely even a community, those who post can and do have some good ideas, but I hardly see any support from any officials on this forum.
There is so much support for this idea in general, I for one think it's great. But sadly, if money is involved as heavily as it is, I think a lot of people will lose hope fast.
Finally, I appreciate that money will inevitably play a vital part in creating this. But let's be realistic here, we have a billionaire as a founder, and many other well off officials, you CAN pull together a real campaign and gather some big time investors. But only with a loyal following. Don't lose that.
