Great first post!
For the first time at DCG, I assisted in implementing a purpose-built, data-driven planning tool (Gantt-based), to track dependencies, resource allocation, constraints, hidden complexities, etc.
'Let's have a competition, who can suggest the simplest of proposals that actually brings value to the network. I know it's only one dash to submit but nevertheless I will fund the best ideas.'
In my opinion, MNOs should not influence structures and management style, because it would be highly ineffective. Destructive in a long run.Well, the current management style structure has also not worked well for Dash these years (just look at how many DCG managers left DCG) and is perhaps too costly for DCG as well (specially during bear markets / crypto winters). At least this more flat hierarchical system gives MNO owners more control on the budget side of things and possibly force the DCG teams to perform better, in order to keep receiving funding. It could also improve communication and provide clarity on what each team is working on exactly. We have a good picture with regards to the Platform and Core teams through the Dash Platform and Core Development Updates, and a far less clear picture so far on the other teams (Business Development, Marketing, Mobile, Infrastructure).
NTFs were the internet's favorite new plaything in 2021 and into the first half of 2022. As cryptocurrency prices skyrocketed, so did the value of these digital items. Who would have thought an ugly JPEG of a monkey could be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars? In 2023, the market has cooled along with crypto prices. Many metaverse projects have woven NFTs into the experience, and it looked like Facebook was planning to go in that direction with its metaverse play. Now, it's changing course.

DCG : plans to add NFT support with Dash Platform v2.0
Either there is a real disconnect between DCG (which is mainly a group of developers these days) and the outside world, or DCG knows something we (and Meta and Instagram) don't know...
