but what matters is what the everyday user gravitates to.
the solana crowd is more in touch with reality esp when it comes to product development:
is this very decentralized? No.

10/ But what matters is what the everyday user is looking for. Solana people are more in touch with reality, especially when it comes to product development:

But could your grandmother use this? YES
While many had a positive response, others couldn’t help but bring up the issue of Solana’s network outages. At the beginning of June, the price of Solana (SOL) plummeted because the network suffered its fifth interruption in the year. Because of this, Twitter user Metamaxie questioned why Solana is trying to be a phone manufacturer when it should be focused on making its blockchain trustworthy.
Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, has also taken as hint Solana’s new move. According to Hoskinson, people would need to find seven of their friends on Discord to reboot the phone, which means the phone may suffer similar performance issues as Solana’s blockchain..
