Why the collateral fee of the masternodes is a hardcoded number (1000 dash) and it is not subject of a market negotiation? Why there is a maximum number of Masternodes and you dont let the masternodes to be as many as the market desires? Why you designed this artificial masternodes scarcity?I remember your posts about mining. And as I already said, the fact that people had wrong assumptions about how mining profitability is going to evolve after market is flooded with ASICs (i.e. underestimated the number of ASICs that can be shipped in a short period of time) has nothing to do with governance. Market is simply reacting as it should: too much of hashpower supply with a fixed mining reward and relatively stable price makes mining not profitable - works as designed, nothing to fix here. If you think that every time mining becomes not profitable (because a lot of people started mining) block reward should be significantly increased to make it profitable again, than I have bad news for you - it doesn't work this way. This would just attract even more miners and would require to inflate the currency even more. And so on. Basically, the moment you'd try to regulate supply to make everyone happy is going to be the end of the currency.
While you expect others to obey to the market rules, the Mastenodes aristocracy is deliberately designed (by the core team) to be a market protected element of the community. Why the core team designed this protectionism, for the benefit of the masternodes, and against the will (and the interest) of the whole Dash community?
If you really like market freedom, apply it to everyone and do not exclude the masternodes (or yourself. Being a salary paid employee, you are not fully exposed to the market, are you?) from it.
