What if we had a system that would allow the DASH community members to stake proposals that they like? So that anyone could put up a pre-proposal free of cost and then the community members could decide if they wanted to stake one of these proposals to bring it into the voting cycle. These which would then stake a proposal would get their staking + 50% returned if the proposal gets funded successfully. The 50% ROI would make up for the risk they are taking + the work of investigation and promotion of that proposal. That would mean that engaged community members could have a higher influence on which proposals actually get put up and voted on and they could even earn some revenue by that. Anyway if someone wanted to go the classical way of self-funding a proposal that would still be possible. This whole system could be even implemented within the Dash Forum without any development efforts. Anyone could simply open a thread and ask for funding while offering a 50% ROI on the stake, then in case the proposal gets staked they would simply demand 7.5 DASH instead of the classical 5 DASH for putting up the proposal. What do you think? Would that be an alternative to DashBoost which has been inactive for such a long time?
