This will encourage them to set up a MN.Some thoughts about the voting:
1) Someone who does not run a masternode cannot vote. His voice will never be heard.
Not sure but I don't think the dev team owns too many MNs. I think the majority of MNs are still in the hands of many different people.2) Is it true that the total share of the masternodes owned by big investors and the dev team/DASH functionaries exceeds 50%? If this is true, and given item 1, the whole voting process becomes redundant. If I am not mistaken, there is at least one big investor who owns ca. 600 masternodes or 25% at the monent.
They can work together to agree on a vote. Probably something like if 5 people own a MN, and 3 say "no", 2 say "yes", then the vote is "no".3) If several people have shares in one masternode, how should the owners of that masternode vote before the masternode itself can vote? How to estimate the number of such masternodes?
Is gold/silver a monetary unit in any country?4) Project budget is proposed to be measured in US dollar which is backed up by nothing and can be created by FED in nanoseconds out of thin air. What about using gold/silver instead (1 ounce, 50 g)?
