I'm going to create two separate posts: one post is for discussion of the relative merits of the two proposals (THIS POST) and a separate post where Steemians can cast their vote for one of the two options by voting for one of the two comments on the post.
The purpose of THIS post is to allow Steemians to discuss two alternative versions of the Steem Proposal System:
- A proposal system that only receives funds via donations
- A proposal system that also additionally receives funds by redirecting funds from existing inflation sources (no new inflation would be added to the system).
[EDIT: The poll is now "live", feel free to cast your votes here:
Opinions Here, Voting There
Please post your opinions about these two options on this post only, not on the actual stake-weighted polling post. In order to keep the poll choices clearly visible on the poll post, I will downvote any other comment made on it. I will add a link to the polling post once it's created. This is far from a perfect way to do this, but it's the best I could come up with at the spur of the moment. Maybe someone can create a GUI to do this better later (@dpoll maybe).
I'll run a second poll to get opinions on how to allocate from existing sources if that looks like it's the likely winner of this poll.
If you're wondering why this is a stake-weighted poll, see my comments in the previous post in my blog.
