Interesting morning. In viewing the recent posts from both Yves and Dan, I do so while wearing my “what’s in the best interest of EOS” glasses. This has after all been my main commitment during the time I’ve engaged with the EOS community through Eden.
With those glasses on I agree with Dan’s point that “the EOS community needs a transitional leader to navigate the journey from stake-weighted decision making toward fractal democracy (aka true democracy).” Similarly from Yves post I agree that “grants, sponsorship’s, and key infrastructure support” are greatly required.
Ideally Yves could have mentioned Eden in his post, and Dan could have suggested a timeline or path for Eden to “deprecate it’s need for the Foundation to allocate the funding it requires” however we can work through those details together.
In light of finding consensus among the EOS community, what Eden explicitly sets out to do, I will put forward the following sets of questions to Yves from myself and others that I’ve seen so far from the community. If Yves is being honest with the following statement, then he will answer each of these questions in an open, transparent, unambiguous manner; “I commit to the EOS community that I will move forward with humility and purpose to meet this moment in our shared history. I am truly honoured by this call to service and will do my best each and every day to be worthy of it.”
- What EXACTLY is this EOS Foundation?
- Who are the foundation’s members and how are they selected?
- Where did the foundation come from (who has played a part in its inception)?
- What is the foundation’s decision making process comprised of?
- What does the foundation hope to accomplish/what role will it fill and how?
- How does the foundation integrate with Eden?
- Why 2% increased inflation and not say 1%? What about an inflation rate increase that is proportional to the EOS price itself?
- Why would all of this inflation go directly to an EOS foundation placing itself between the BPs and Eden. Why not commit from the very start the 0.25% directly to Eden as what has been suggested, and the foundation can take the difference?
- Has B1 been approached, and do we have any indication of their view of this proposal?
- From Dan’s post, please clearly outline, with measurable kpi and a timeline, how the foundation will “support Eden and the move toward true fractal democracy”?
- How will the EOS Foundation interact with the future elected Chief Delegates of Eden?
Next I’m going to ask Yves questions that Yves himself had asked during the first trial election. You expected answers to these for 1000 EOS, now its your turn for a much larger pot. We’ll have a mini Eden round via forum post to achieve consensus
- What would you do with the budget? (you’ve asked Eden what it would do with substantial funding in advance of receiving it, now its your turn to answer that question).
- Based on your answer to this: How would you do that? (IE describe the process by which the funds needed will be distributed, tracked, and accounted for)
- How would you (or those that you are funding) market these ideas?
- How would you keep those you fund accountable to build what they said they will?
And finally a last set of questions from me directly:
- Where are you? You’ve dropped this post and are nowhere to be seen. Why are you not engaging with the community as a leader should, and is this how you plan to run the foundation, where ambiguity and FUD are allowed to circulate without a response?
- What is your commitment to transparency while leading this foundation? Will you hold regular meetings/ama’s where the community can interact with you? How are you going to communicate and engage with the community…commit.
- Will you have an open call ASAP to hear the questions and concerns from the community and respond, clearly/directly in real time?
- Can you succinctly summarize your mission/goal statement?
- Are there timelines that can be tied to this mission and definitions of success/completion?
- How can the community support your mission? What do you need from us?
I know there is a lot here, but surely that would be expected. Bottom line I am supportive of the intent of what you’re doing @YvesLaRose. I only hope that the principals set out in More Equal Animals will resonate with your proposed EOS Foundation to prevent “party politics, politicians, ballot stuffing, gerrymandering, incumbent advantages, special interest or debates with the authenticity of a WWE wrestling match.”
Your call to action is to answer these questions either here or somewhere else. If consensus is to be reached, then open dialogue must begin.
