Swarm Council to trial delegating governance functions to Masternode operators as Designated Members of the Swarm Network


#1

Ballot Title:
Swarm Council to trial delegating governance functions to Masternode operators as Designated Members of the Swarm Network

Short Description:
This ballot is to define a limited trial for delegating some governance functions to Masternodes as Designated Members of the Swarm Network.

Long Description:
With an adoption of SNC-2019.01, the Swarm Network can determine Designated Members that take certain responsibilities.

Some of the key participants in the Swarm Network are the Masternode Operators or Channel Partners for helping reach adoption for the Swarm protocol. It is beneficial to give participation and a voice to such an important group.

It may take some trials to determine the right balance of rights and responsibilities on these sub-governance structures for Swarm Network. Today, we suggest to give the Swarm Council the task to conceptualize a sub-governance for Masternode Operators, run some trials of the concepts limited amount of tasks (e.g. to decide on the network policies for the Market Access Protocol), and then generate a broader Governance Action Proposal within the next 6 months.

The quorum is 21,356,402.44 SWM, equivalent to 25% of the SWM tokens in circulation when launching the ballot.
