just gonna throw my 2 cents in here because i know there’s a million people thinking it but are too polite to say it. a lot of people were excited about this airdrop, and the project as a whole, but the way things are turning out this is looking to be a very big disappointment.
i’ll explain why, and give an off the top of my head brainstorm-esque solution for each below:
aa: the dao can’t even decide when or why to open a proposal, this is defeating the entire purpose of the concept of a dao. in my opinion, the main reason for this is people seem to be way over thinking or over complicating things for reasons i have yet to figure out
ab: keep it simple, don’t over complicate things for the sake of over complicating things. don’t be afraid of multiple less complicated proposals in favor of one big proposal with all sorts of information and technical details. 99% of the people participating aren’t developers, 70% aren’t primarily english speakers.
ba: things move slow, and delays are constant
bb: i know software is hard, but the undecidedness and delays just kill any enthusiasm. keep things fast paced, get things done, get people involved. set weekly goals, and try to do a proposal every week or two. even if they’re not critical. active community = success.
ca: team seems to be heavily biased towards keeping tokens locked
cb: it would be a lot easier if the team just told us why they want to keep them locked. is it fears of government/law breaking, fear of launching during bear, or something else entirely? honesty is the best policy. if its a valid reason people won’t have any issues with it. an important tidbit, and this goes for everyone worried about the price of the token: the state of this dao as it exists at this moment is infinitely more damaging to the price of the token than launching during the bear. delaying and making things take months instead of days or hours, people lose interest. people have extremely short attention spans, crypto is a fast moving space, it’s easy to become irrelevant and once that happens it’s a whole lot harder to become relevant again.
da: two wallets controlling a majority of voting power
db: if the above 3 complaints achieve some semblance of resulution, this one fixes itself. but as it is now, this is kind of not good and anyone who denies is themselves in denial. in my opinion a logarithmic token:vote power ratio as opposed to linear makes a lot of sense, and solves the problem of whales while still giving them a greater say than the smaller holders
anyways i’m by no means an expert and the more i know the more i know i dont know so take everything i say with a grain of sand. this post might have been better elsewhere, apologies if considered off-topic. also the intent of this post isn’t to offend anyone, also apologies. thanks for listening.
