Are funding caps on the dev fund slice still an issue for you? on the up coming MGRC candidate live streams, this is one of the major questions. Do I need to prepare an answer for this?
Or will the ECC still block it with the trademark?
Im pro cap btw, but i thought if we capped one slice we had to cap them all or it wasn’t a level playing field and there wasn’t enough incentive alignment (i might me misremembering what you said here.) Im sure there were other reasons too. @mhluongo I remember you were anti cap, I don’t suppose you remember the finer points?
edit: funding caps were in 1012 and the first iteration of 1014 but removed for final.
New 1014 with caps: - https://www.zfnd.org/blog/proposed-nu4-zip/

which give us this:
There SHOULD NOT be a Monthly Funding Cap and Volatility Reserve
was the option that won the vote. Primarily because the ECC said they would refuse their portion of the slice.
So we dont have a voliatily reseve. I think it is a good idea. Instead, the options we discussed were getting funding from grant recipients, via different methods, primarly some kind of profit share. however, it was though this might encourage greater awards to profit based grants, this is why tromer made the post about “seeking to fund things that dont make a profit.”
