I feel the structure in place for the NNS and the ability for stake holders to Decentralize the WWW is a great opportunity for us to fix the issues we face today. But it seems the comments within the NNS are more about how to punish others, reward themselves while adding more layers to the NNS and making it more difficult.
Sorry for my bluntness but I feel we have an opportunity to fix it now in the early stages. After studying this page Staking, voting and rewards - Internet Computer Wiki my understanding is outlined below.
Decentralization is described as planning and decision making that is distributed or delegated away from a central, authoritative location or group.
Staked voting Power = 1 vote for every staked ICP plus Dissolved Delay, Length Delay and possible maturity rewards.
Without getting into the logic, it means that there is NO Decentralization!
In my opinion you will have the same problem as we face today with individuals manipulating the IC for personal gain.
Major investors already gain rewards through the purchase of each ICP and then reap further rewards for voting but should not be rewarded for personal gains by having more voting power.
I am not saying that an individual would purposely propose manipulation but we have seen major players with billions do and say things that the majority do not agree with and we end up with an uneven playing field.
I would suggest a system of 1 vote per owner no matter how many stakes.
There are no bad organizations, just many different opinions within.
Proposal: Financial disincentive for Neuron Owner for a non-vote or following.
Neuron Owner 1. = 1 ICP = 1 Vote
Neuron Owner 2. = 2 ICP = 2 Votes
Owner 1 voted NO
Owner 2 voted Yes
The theme that I see through reading proposals and forum conversations is that most of us don’t have the expertise or understanding to vote on all proposals but are often criticized for following because of our lack of understanding, to take rewards from followers and give those rewards to those who have a better understanding which shows their lack of understanding or maybe manipulating for more rewards for themselves.
As a prospective staker I have spent many hours getting to understand the processes of the IC and have struggle at times and feel that to be a new staker I will be face with many unsuspected proposals that I will rely on Default Neuron 27 to vote for me, get to know other stakers that I feel I would like to follow and make personal votes on issues that I do or think I understand for the maximum rewards I can receive.
I would like to think that 1 vote per person on any and all stakes they own, a financial disincentive for those who would manipulate staking for personal benefit by removing voting rights and I feel a democratic voting style would have a Decentralization outcome where bad proposals would not be voted for and therefore no need to build extra layers onto the NNS but let it do the job it was designed.
