In the past few days the idea of decentralised voting has been discussed, fought upon and we haven’t come to any conclusion.
These are good conversations in my understanding. The way they are expressed and how much of our time, energy and resources we are putting into it, shows the passion and commitment towards a decentralised world we all want.
I would like to share what I think could be a way forward.
However, I believe “the community will decide the best path forward for themselves ”
Changes being suggested are very quick and the community can get overwhelmed by trying to keep up with the pace of changes while running their own DAOs and also trying to live a normal life.
Voting needs to be more decentralised, but decentralisation is very subjective and everyone has a unique way of viewing it.
Many old and new members have ideas but they aren’t shared in the way they should be heard and understood
Suggestion for a way forward -
The best way in my limited understanding is to have people with ideas of how decentralised voting can be done, to present it to the community, one meeting at a time and one day at a time.
This will allow the community to listen to various perspectives of decentralised voting, think about how they feel about every idea.
Once the ideas are presented to the creatives community, a group of
- old members who’ve been in the system for a long time
- One council from each DAO
- And memebrs who want to participate in understanding implications of the ideas suggested
should join in discussing and methodically, putting down pros and cons of every idea.
Once the pros and cons are recognised and shared with the community, the processes are laid down to be understood by everyone, community members will have more clarity and will be in a better position to decide the way forward
Keeping in mind that no idea is the best and every idea is like a ladder. We’ll have to change it after a while, just like DAO of DAOs didn’t work after sometime.
In my opinion, this should finish within 2 months if planned properly with the participation of the community as we don’t want to rush things and think of every aspect through before deciding the new voting mechanism.
While we figure out the best way forward, we should continue the voting as happening since before.
However we can increase or decrease the timeline by a vote based on how community feels.
The experiment and evolution of decentralisation is happening as we speak.
In my humble opinion, fighting and putting others ideas down won’t help and will create chaos.
It’s better to constructively put our ideas forth instead.
We are one of the biggest community experimenting with decentralisation. This is for me a factor of pride to be a part of it and for the world an area of a case study.
Let’s put our ideas to a vote and let the best idea win
