Based on the information from the source Guardians Gather, we can understand that there are only around 100 guardians.
But they have been allocated 25 million SAFEs for immediate unlock and 25 million SAFEs for linear unlock.
Compared with safe users, there are only 25 million SAFEs for more than 11k users.
In other words, by Q1 2024, if SAFEs are transferable, they would hold nearly 40 million SAFEs.
As described, guardians are responsible for managing the SAFE ecosystem and protocol, but without proper regulations and limitations, guardians could potentially abuse the SAFEs they obtained for free, especially individual guardians.
They might sell the free SAFEs when transferable. Can they still be considered responsible guardians if they do so?
According to the examples of most existing mature projects, they should take the lead in staking their own SAFEs instead of selling off the trust given to them by the community whenever there is a benefit.
If they give up their voting and governance rights and unwillingly contribute to the growth of SAFE, instead acting more like speculators, can they still be considered responsible guardians?
Without a doubt, this will discourage the enthusiasm of potential contributors and members who want to join the SAFE community.
Guardians, as their name suggests, should be guarding the growth of SAFE instead of acting as speculators.
Given this background, should we initiate a proposal to restrict the initial selling of SAFEs by guardians to ensure that they are doing the right thing and promote the healthy development of the SAFE community?
