    2020.2 Grant Pool Valuation

    That’s a great point that I overlooked... the bug bounties. For my calculator, I’ll add in the 1% buffer for future calculations. In the past as guides we used buffers but wasn’t sure which buffer to use. 1% seems appropriate. I’ll also work to code in the bug bounties and any “escrow” type...

    Amendment Batched Amendment - Removal of Guides from Governance

    Thanks @CryptoLogic for reviewing the documents. I think your discovery of doc 107 is accurate and I would suggest we edit it to reflect available FCT be approved prior to voting, not round closure. As for what to do should the standing parties not approve the available FCT? I would assume the...

    Proposal to trim ANO numbers

    It’s unfortunate we don’t have staking implemented. Assuming ANOs have bags accumulated, the ones that voluntarily step down would be able to transfer their voting power to staking instead if we went that way. Moot point though, so let’s figure out how to move forward.

    Proposal to trim ANO numbers

    Proposal to trim ANO numbers

    Do we have any takers to voluntarily stepping down? Is this something that would be better served in private? The results will eventually be publicly known and there is no harm or foul if anyone is evaluating stepping down. I think the concern is anyone who voices their intention (or even...

    Amendment Doc 002 - Administration of governance and community documents - V3.0

    I'm not seeing any discussions around this ratification. It is necessary for us to move forward in a timely manner to update our governance with the removal of the guide role. As such, I have made the motion to end the discussion early.
