    Decentralized Budgeting Results

    This is not a commentary on the implementation or advocacy for an alternative, simply indication that democracy is poor word association.

    Decentralized Budgeting Results

    Careful there. If the vote extends only to masternode operators and not the general user, I wouldn't bandy that word. Embracing a measured vote of the bourgeoisie is far from democracy.

    Vote: Self-sustainable Decentralized Governance by Blockchain

    The most practical implementation here would be to enable "abstain" as a valid voting option and set the default vote to null rather than "ABSTAIN." This would implement the desired functionality without too much convolution of the voting system. At the end of the voting period, or for any...

    Vote: Self-sustainable Decentralized Governance by Blockchain

    Should rebuff user response on the voting system with this aspect. There is no response on success from client side on delivering a vote or write to debug.log. Additionally, the client side should be able to check pmn->lastVote equivalent from masternodeman as well and respond with a message...

    Vote: Self-sustainable Decentralized Governance by Blockchain

    Ninja nodes are still running on 11.2.22 at present and therefore can't hold the votes for long periods per Evan's note in OP.

    Vote: Self-sustainable Decentralized Governance by Blockchain

    I spoke too soon, there is no textual feedback from vote whereas vote-many has an iteration counter message.

    Vote-many gives textual feedback, vote does not. Run masternode list votes and parse for your ip. Edited to correct claim after sniffing code.

    Just need the masternode.conf. Nothing is pulled from wallets here so you don't need to load or unlock cold wallets.

    That method doesn't exist, not sure what TaoOfSatoshi meant to indicate. All you have for voting within the client right now are vote and vote-many. Also, voting does not require a wallet unlock.

    Voting plus multisig scripting would be the sensible basis here, sidechains should never be encouraged. However while script-based transactions are fairly well established, they have not been implemented at this scale and introduce risk should involved masternodes not follow convention.

    Vote: Self-sustainable Decentralized Governance by Blockchain

    IANAL, but It's a unique case, which always draws question. The miner creates the transaction and could have legal merit, the masternode receives funds and further executes services based on a relatively unspecified contract. Sure if this goes directly to a fund it's relatively easy to prove...

    This endeavor of allocating funds towards developers, regardless of how well-intentioned or well-implemented would inevitably draw further attention in this regard.

    Vote: Self-sustainable Decentralized Governance by Blockchain

    I'll rebase some of my previous commentary. Relying on the masternode network with a randomized script metric is somewhat concerning. Looking around the community right now, it is easy to see that there are a few people who own a fair number of masternodes or otherwise hold influence over a...

    Self-sustainable Decentralized Governance by Blockchain

    This was exactly my thought with the mention of considering use of transaction locks held by masternodes who receive the coinbase tx. With proper implementation, these become held to a function and burned if not appropriated according to masternode voting, or with some tweaks to darksend allow...

    Announcing the Project Management and Delivery Excellence Initiative

    The synergy of this project is project is bound to soar with a "Delivery Execllence Initiative." Buzzwords much? But seriously, glad to see this refocus.
