Hi Hoge family,

We understand that there are a lot of questions about the projects that form or do not form part of the Hoge ecosystem, and the discussions of the last few days brings an opportunity for us as a community to define a better system moving forward. As you are aware, we had an initial system for Hoge branded projects before the brand was opened to the community. This system was somehow perceived as though the Association was “gatekeeping” and therefore limiting development in this space.

We have always been of the belief that everyone in the community should be encouraged to build new projects, and we support the development of individual projects that are promoting Hoge and are also contributing into our community, therefore Hoge brand has become opened for use with few restrictions (read the current brand use policy here : https://egs.hogeassociation.org/hoge-brand/). This means that anyone is free to build whichever type of project they want, without any consensus from the community.

However, we have not debated together a system of empowering people to build and become part of the ecosystem, which is the reason many questions have arisen in the last few days. It is indeed unclear how projects become part of the ecosystem of Hoge. Can they use the communication channels and the official social media platforms of Hoge? Do they have to be vetted, endorsed by the Association? Is this feasible? Is this sustainable? Is it practical? Is this not discouraging people to create in this space ? We considered that all of these possible questions would be resolved once the DAO would become functional.

As the DAO is in progress, and we have projects that are developing, we as a community need to find together a way of onboarding new projects, of accepting partnerships that are beneficial to Hoge as a whole, so that the community does not feel divided and unhappy, when in reality we all have the intention to see innovation, growth and in the end satisfaction for every member of the community. The discussions we are having now will also give us a running start once the DAO decentralized application is operational as we will regularly have these sort of decisions to make as a community.

Next week, a series of talks on Twitter spaces, Telegram and Discord have been arranged by community members in different days, so that as many members of the community could take part and discuss a process of onboarding independent projects into the Hoge ecosystem.

It is not the Association that should endorse a particular project, but it is for the community through a voting system, after having read a proposal that is made by each project – based on the guidelines that we can construct together – to support or not a project as being part of the ecosystem, considering the benefits that it brings to Hoge and the input they are looking for from our community.

The Association can help with supporting the debate and bring any legal arguments in relation to the guidelines of onboarding said projects, considering that our aim remains always to support exposure of the brand, community growth and development.

Have a good weekend, and let's start the talks from Monday!

Same thing happened with lots of other good projects like Pancakeswap (Cake) with Babycake, for which the community was skeptical at the beginning, until they realized that with the babycake project in their ecosystem actually helped the mother project a lot! Cheers

Think of it as teething issues. The vision and outcome are reasonably sound, but the execution at the start was not well thought out. They have provided a launchpad for future projects however by opening up the conversation and ensuring it IS clear how to join the ecosystem. Every success has messy moments, there is no memory without adversity :)

I do think there is a conversation that needs to be had around the Hoge narrative however - what does Hoge stand for? What is Hoge's vision? How are we communicating that to the investment community? How do all the elements of the Hoge ecoystem contribute to that vision? I know this sounds corperate and we are a memecoin - but if we want to differentiate ourselves an investor deck that communicates our value proposition beyond "hype hype hype" might not be a bad idea.It's great to hear "hoge satellites in space" but even better if there are simple use cases that make sense attached to it that resonate (and they may be in planning already).
