It is my understanding that with Eden we don’t want any community to grow too big so we put a cap of 10,000 members in terms of how big a group can be. There’s also anticipation that independent local Eden communities will emerge in different language groups. As the community evolves, I anticipate there will be cases where group of members in the existing Eden community will want to secede from their original community and form a new one. In this case:
- Should they move their membership to a new community, removing themselves from the existing one? How do we define the process of the secede/forking? Is there any action defined/coded in the current iteration of Eden smart contract?
- Should we allow double citizenship in which a member can stay in their original community while they obtain other (multiple) memberships in any new community?
For example, as one of Korean community leader, if I invite bunch of Korean participants to the current community and later form a separate Korean Eden community, what will things look like? Do they fork out? Or do they stay in this iteration of Eden community and join a new one? It might sound like a question asked too early in the process, but I think it could be sooner that we think.
I’m posting this question publicly because none of us have answers just yet.
