Project Quality assurance


Well-known member
Currently, projects are proposed to voters, but we do not have a mechanism to make sure about quality of projects satisfy users or not.

I have an idea: Why don't we split voting in two phases? First we vote and the network will fund about 50% (or something) of the proposal value, and then when project complete voters votes again to confirms that project is good or not. If it satisfy users the second vote will release 50% left. If the quality is not good enough the funding will remain for other projects.

Maybe, the first vote will restrict to only masternode owners, but the second vote, I think normal people also can vote.
Personally, I like ideas like this, but I don't think it would work as it is, not least because, AFAIK, the new budget system revolves around Project Managers. Paying half the money upfront might work when you have a small board of people, but I'm not sure how that would play out with hundreds of MNs. I think we should see how the new budget system works, no doubt it will need tweaking.
Please take into consideration that some projects have upfront cost higher than 50%. Who should cover those expenses when they are due?

I'd say wait for the new budget system, and let's see how it turns out.
