Mobile devs who want to integrate Cardano, have to build their own replica of tools, which requires knowledge of cryptography.
Apps for training AI & ML algorithms tend to be centralized, with no transparency. This can bring biased results as the algorithm learn
IPFS is widely used in the Cardano ecosystem. Data stored on IPFS is prone to disappear if not used and will be lost forever.
A lot of integrations in the ecosystem depend on this library (Coinbase and Yoroi for example) and it will stop working for Alonzo
Flutter is the fastest growing mobile app developer community but currently there's no Flutter library support in the Cardano ecosystem.
Right now you can access the cardano-wallet using the built in REST API but Elixir does not have a higher-level library to use the wallet.
Can we take advantage of the no-code movement in order to grow the number of developers on Cardano with a no-barrier entry platform?
Enabling the sales of goods and services for crypto requires intermediaries who control the seller's money and charge fees/commissions.
Catastrophic bugs keep developers from wanting to build DApps, because the risk of losing all the assets in the DApp is terrifying.
Yoroi is missing Czech localization making it difficult to use on the local market.
Yoroi is missing Slovak localization making it difficult to use on the local market.
Yoroi backend doesn't have the capability for fetching metadata from oracle endpoints.
Cardano (NFT*) Projects rely on IPFS to store asset data. IPFS does NOT guarantee storage. Most projects are at risk of losing that data.
Cardano lacks services that will enable developers to capitalize on the interest in NFTs to drive integration, adoption, and user growth.
Machine-readable IDs like Cardano addresses, other cryptocurrency addresses, content hashes, and metadata are not human centered design.
NFTs do not travel easily between chains, use models or games; stranding their value and reducing their efficacy with poor interoperability.
Connecting to wallets, payment gateways, exchanges & credit cards in Web3 is not as simple as it has become with Stripe-like Web2 solutions.
A lack of advocacy for open source A need to reform Project Management techniques A need to evolve to auditable levels.
A detailed, step-by-step, and thorough guide with usable templates for off-chain computation using Plutus does not exist at this moment.
IOHK dev explorer for testnet does not provide useful insights that developers need. Many developers are asking for a testnet Cardanoscan.
Developers want to contribute to projects but at the same time they want to be rewarded either by token of appreciation or recognition.
There is a severe lack of support for WebSockets within the Cardano APIs.
