Why doesn't Bitshares do something like this?

It seems like a better idea to have the main developer of the project to build a team of new developers than have the community vote developers in or out, the public shareholders know nothing about development, only other developers that are shareholders would know who is a good candidate...

This becomes a problem when you have more developers than needed and who are being paid nicely.  Bitshares has neither, so it seems pointless except as a hype.  Yay a good c++ developer can make $1k a month (capped/max)..   I think it is good in that it opens the doors to people who may be on the fence about being involved. It is a nice invitation but it isn't going to pull people from outside their existing community.  I am not aware of an individual developer elected as a delegate who is poor value.
I speak for myself and only myself.
