It is hard & can be costly for funded Catalyst proposals to select a jurisdiction and type of juristic entity. But success demands they do.
The lack of services that actively offer Cardano developers to right paid jobs, protect their work and grow their abilities.
Plutus is a new Smart Contracts programming language that few programmers have mastered.
IPFS is widely used in the Cardano, mostly in the NFT ecosystem. It is critical to be able to access this data using a gateway service.
Developers require explorer with features to dig deep technically and help their development needs for smart contracts and dApp projects
Maintaining an IPFS infrastructure is time-consuming and costly.
Developers need access to off-chain data feeds -- these are costly to setup.
Cardano's Smart Contract is built on Haskell. But there is no book or document about Haskell for developers in Vietnam
There are many people who really want to write smart contracts and build projects on Cardano. But Haskell is a big barrier for beginners
