Will there need to be a fee for delegates making officially voteable dilution proposals? How high should it be?
Prospective delegates who want dilution could propose their idea unofficially on the forums and get an idea of whether it is likely to be voted in or not and use community feedback to refine the idea. Then they could write it up and officially propose it, costing a fee, maybe quite a large one.
The stakeholders could easily get overwhelmed by too many voting decisions. Too many proposals have already been seen in the forum to cause confusion, stress, and bearishness. If there's a fee to make an official voteable dilution proposal it would have the following benefits:
The higher the fee:
- the fewer voteable dilution proposals (higher stakeholder confidence/certainty)
- the better the quality of the proposals
- the lower the level of freakout by stakeholders as at least some would have been exposed to the proposal many times on the forum and developed some trust towards the delegate during the preliminary proposal feedback process.
- the higher the deflation from fee-burning!
Burning of fees from dilution proposals could add a decent income stream to the DAC. I'd say it should be a few hundred USD worth of BTS per official voteable proposal, maybe more?
If the fee is $300USD worth of BTS, stakeholders who are greatly in favour of the proposal from the pre-liminary discussions could easily donate to pay the fee to put it up for vote. If the proposal is good enough it should easily be able to gather $300 of donations from its supporters before going up to vote.
Also maybe proposal makers should be required to run a delegate for at least 1 month before making an official voteable proposal. That helps build trust and commitment to BTS by creating an intellectual overhead and proves they are capable of the basic delegate tasks.
