Here’s an alternative proposal. The goal is for the projects that are important for EOS community to get funded (and actually started).
Pick 3-4 established teams which are decentralized enough, like Vigor or Defibox (or even Europechain, which is in essence 5 European block producers).
Throw cash at them, with the condition that 70% is spent on EOS projects that the community wants and benefits from. The remaining 30% is for their own projects, and they have already proven their ability to spend wisely.
They set up their kinds of worker proposal systems and make quick decisions and sponsor projects, follow up and demand the results. Their reputation and future funding is at stake.
Job done. Initial funding can be done from RAM fees (the fund that was already once thought for a WPS).
The teams need to present themselves, define their goals and ways to move forward, and 15/21 BP would approve their funding batches. $1M worth for a start, then next batches worth $5M or so.
They are established teams with business goals, and it’s in their interest to run this efficiently. They will be focused on making this happen. And they have a reputation to care about.
