As we have progressed in the development of the V1 governance framework we have run into a number of questions that seem to be the center of much interest and discussion. As a way of gauging public opinion on these topics, we would like to put them to vote so as to best understand what people are feeling and to see which are most needed in the V1.
For a high level overview of the different governing bodies and relevant assumptions, please see here: NDC Governance Framework V1.3 - Google Docs
Now for the open-questions that we ask everyone provide their feedback on (feel free to comment below specific questions and options, and we will add them in for the next round of feedback as well):
