I think you’re right. Businesses in general have a tight budget for uncertainty. Why risk a radical project to grow when you can just do the bread and butter and still end up rich? Businesses only innovate at gunpoint, not when the wind is blowing in their favor, and it’s the way it is… And the regular, obvious path to growth is already full of its own risks, challenges and work to do.
Yes, I’m going to end up somehow creating an exchange if none at all shows interest. I hope I don’t have to; it’s just duplicate work…
I hope the best for you and your project.
