I appreciate greatly how devs and advisors push this project forward and the amount of time and energy you put into this! Phore is a project with a soul as it seems to me, so I hope to not waste your time with my questions.
So I’d like to do have a website run on my mn-server that displays information regarding the governance system (kind of like this, but with more style). For this I’d like to know what the address of the budget/community fund is, so that I can display the total in real-time - I tried to decipher the blockchain but didn’t find that .7 phr per block for the budget…
Another noob question: does a single proposal just need to have more yes than nos to pass or does it need a minimum amount of yes?
So the shared masternodes got me thinking. Wouldn’t there be a possibility to put that stuff in the code?
So one could think of masternodes as alliances or states. Multiple masternodes could be part of the same alliance or state. They could, if the rules of the alliance foresaw that, give a percentage of the mn-rewards to the alliance-fund (the monthly phore-budget remains untouched though, that would be supplementary taxes). This would give phore as a project more flexibility. Think about it. Phore is forked from Pivx, which is forked from DASH. Often times, projects fork because they want to do something different, or because they think their voice was not heard. Sometimes they do something fundamentally different, but other times it’s more a cultural discrepancy that leads to the fork.
Giving people the power to build alliances gives them the option of supporting projects that wouldn’t get a majority vote only by mn’s and gives them a seat at the big table, because every alliance would need to run at least one MN. This would give the possibility of letting people who can’t afford a masternode vote inside their alliance and this would then decide how that alliance will vote for budget proposals.
I know smart contracts are in the planning and this would be one application of them, but the fuck-ups of theDAO and other smart-contracts are worrying. Letting the devs of the phore project implement something like this would make people trust the code and agree on a standard. Once smart contracts are implemented, people could still do their own thing, but at their own risk.
appreciate your time!
