Reflections on Leadership and Conviction in NFT Projects

Founder of DeGods and y00ts NFT project, Rohun Vora, recently shared his introspective reflections on past decisions in a candid tweet. The tweet highlighted the challenges of balancing community expectations and founder responsibilities during turbulent times in the world of NFT collections.

Challenges of Community Expectations

Vora acknowledged that in the past, he had made significant efforts to satisfy the community during chaotic periods. However, he recognized that each attempt had ultimately backfired. The pressure to cater to the desires of holders while maintaining project momentum led to decisions that were not always well-received.

One notable instance was the series of art changes within DeGods, including a planned upgrade and subsequent art “downgrade.” Despite these efforts to engage the community, Vora and his team faced backlash and criticism.

Controversial Moves and Lessons Learned

Perhaps the most controversial decision made by Vora was the transition of the DeGods and y00ts NFTs from the Solana blockchain to Ethereum. This move was prompted by the tumultuous period following the collapse of the FTX crypto exchange in November 2022, which significantly impacted Solana’s price.

Vora explained that the decision to move the projects to Ethereum was an attempt to align DeGods with the high-profile NFT projects on the Ethereum ecosystem. However, he later admitted that the move was a reaction to external pressures rather than a strategic conviction.

Reflecting on his past actions, Vora emphasized the importance of standing by one’s convictions in the face of community expectations. He acknowledged that seeking short-term approval often leads to unfavorable outcomes. This realization prompted Vora to offer an optional bridge back to Solana for DeGods and y00ts, providing the community with the autonomy to choose their preferred blockchain.

Embracing Antifragility for Future Growth

Looking ahead, Vora expressed his commitment to building a resilient community that can withstand challenges and uncertainties. He emphasized the concept of antifragility, advocating for a community that thrives on adversity rather than seeking constant validation through reactive measures.

By sharing his personal reflections and evolving approach to project leadership, Vora’s transparency serves as a lesson in authenticity and conviction for others in the NFT space. As the DeGods and y00ts projects navigate their path forward, Vora’s introspection provides valuable insights for fostering sustainable growth and community engagement.
