Exactly, so we should have a collective vision that guides these code and tokenomic changes.
I know, you’ll notice I’ve been defining Synapse on Twitter to those calling it greedy. I think everyone is just doing the best we can.
First, as I’ve said before those were just examples, they aren’t part of this proposal. Second, these two changes are actually reinforced and encouraged by Guiding Principle #2 in my examples, which states this in it’s description:
“Since collusion and majority control by a small group would break the accessibility and impartiality of the NNS, the NNS may adopt measures that contribute to reducing the risk, impact, and incentives of collusion.”
The #6 regarding tokenomic changes could probably be clarified, it’s specifically opposing changes to the to flow of tokens in the sense of using inflation rates to manage the economy of the network via manual proposals, the way a central bank is managed through constant manipulation.
The community has no framework to come to even a rough consensus for how that funding should be supplied. The Ethos is about starting that process so that these kinds of things can start gaining momentum.
Personally, I think projects building on the IC need to take a more active role on the NNS, and the Ethos would be a helpful tool for driving that.
If we can’t define even the most basic aspects of what we want to build using the NNS, how can we start writing any code? Again, the Ethos is just a first step.
This is a call to get started building an Ethos, nothing has even been defined yet, so it’s too soon to call this effort a failure.
For example, since you think tokenomic incentives are necessary, then what scope of tokenomic action is appropriate for the NNS to use towards achieving that? The community is clearly against giving the NNS complete “free reign” to do anything with tokenomics whenever it wants, but if you can think of a good guiding principle the community can rally behind which still allows room for your token incentives, then submit it as a proposal when we begin ratifying the Ethos.
In that way, the Ethos could be the solution you need for getting some tokenomic incentive you want to see, without driving apart the ecosystem. Those opposing a treasury would at least have a clear idea of the scope with which things would be done.
Sure, an Ethos alone is not a complete solution, but without one I think coming to peaceful consensus on any solutions will be significantly more difficult than it needs to be.
