Very detailed breakdown of your contribution. I especially like the part where you share a little bit about yourself. Makes it an overall more human experience haha…

Based on what I see, seems like SushiSwap is really looking to build a base in China. Curious… what is the Chinese’s general sentiment towards SUSHI?

I really appreciate Miya on a personal and work level.
I love what she is doing in terms of organization and think she would be a great addition.

Thanks SushiALLDay for your question. Nowadays, Chinese users get more familiar with our platform and they have more positive attitude towards SUSHI than a few months ago. China community recognizes Sushi’s progress, team work and now they show more willing to support SUSHI for long-term. Generally speaking, we have achieved a better branding in China community.

Hi Sushieater,

I like your name “Sushieater”. We all enjoy eating Sushi lol. Thanks a lot for your support and voting for 65%!
That is a fair question regarding 75%. Totally agree it is impossible to do two jobs from 8-4pm. Need to focus to keep good quality work! Fortunately, my current work has a fixed schedule so I will be able to work for 4-5 hours every day from late afternoon to evening in my timezone which will be morning in China- perfect time for me to communicate with Chinese community :slight_smile: And I am more flexible and can fully focus on Sushi on weekends.In this way, it will sum up to 30 hours a week. I have been testing this schedule since last Sept when I joined Sushi and it works well so far:)
To be honest, I am also deciding on 30 hours or 25 hours myself… I am happy with your vote for 65% (25 hrs) as in this way, I will have some time for rest and have fun :slight_smile: So I will fully rely on the community’s vote to decide how many hours I need to work.:grinning:

Keep in touch and thanks again for your support!

Miya

Would be great if you could present the community with some KPI’s on how the marketing is going. What worked, what did not, where we’re getting the new users from and so forth.
