The general response and discussion about the first topic
is exactly following the description given in our proposal paper:
The current Stake and reward distribution model need to be revisited as it relates more to the traditional Proof of Stake (POS) or Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) rather than the intended Delegated Proof of Contribution (DPoC) governance model. For the various reasons that will be addressed later in the paper, the Proof of Contribution is showing characteristics of a rather restrictive model where reward/return rates are favoring the “lazy” nodes.
There is a positive initiative from the community to address the staking distribution problem. While there are some truly interesting approaches, we believe none of these solutions are strong enough to tackle a complex problem like this. One of the reasons lies in the fact that almost all isolated initiatives start and end in the telegram channels or forum talks. For the same reason, we propose that the problem is addressed in a more professional and a permanent form.
In this proposal, we declare our intention to write a whitepaper that proposes a DeFiCON — a solution(s) to the current Delegated Proof of Contribution (DPoC) reward distribution model.
A measurable Proof of Contribution needs to engineered - it needs to combine several parameters (monthly budget, money spent, value-added, transparency, KPI achieved, reputation, history…) into a unique indicator.
While we respect all the suggestions out there we strongly believe a more serious engagement is needed. We are ready to try to engage and solve this problem.
Please support our proposal as after all this talk, some work needs to be done. Let’s build first and then a more constructive discussion can be held once a visible solution is presented.
