Here an update, not that much changed meanwhile, but 472 votes so far is quiet impressive:
What kind of mathematics did you use to come to that conclusion?
In an ideal favouring of your conclusion which would assume that all the 10-20% would be 20% proposal likers as well the 20% option would get 32% (10% + 22%) are 32% in my book and not 50%+.
But be sure that 10-20% voters are divided for sure btw the 10% and 20% option, which in theory will split them more or less evenly.
But that’s actually even not the point? You guys/girls in ECC should think why only every 10th of voters would vote for the ECC desired 20%.?
I’am pretty sure you guys there make that up to other reasons, that people don’t understand this and that, are trolls, believe in myths, have no idea and and and.
My theory and why i personally voted is 10%, and i’am pretty sure many others did for the very same reason is that the previous founders reward was distributed in a very bad way, that the current ECC has a very bad track on using the funds it has, that people are disapointed on many fronts on wht the ECC did so far despite having on of the best (if not the best) cryptography teams. That the ECC is not transparent enough, that it’s not enough community driven and not enough decentralized.
As the community we have no other option that making it clear in votes and polls as on the forum nobody from the ECC gives 2 cent about such opinions, even worse, we are called weed and FUD’ers.
Me personally voted for 10% on this one and whatever vote/poll is coming i again will vote for 10% as long as the ECC doesn’t get way more transparent, accountable, goes non profit and outside developers and the community gets more involved. Or in other short words, if the ECC admits it’s mistakes and finds a way to correct them for future than i’am pretty sure a lot more people would be even fine with a 20% dev fee. But instead of analysing things, you guys/girls make one step after another that just … backfires again and again…
Don’t be fooled, while i would agree that a portion there are trolls, i’am sure not all are trolls. This poll isn’t held on an anarchy site but by placeholder and blocktown which should indicate that people that have financial interest are their followers.
If you think there are no dev fund supporters within the community you are simply too far away from the community to realize that there is actually support for that option, especially by miners.
You might think that the no dev fund option has no support because there is not much of discussion about it, but that’s naturally as a no dev fund no anything doesn’t need a discussion at all as it’s not a protocol change.
And again, instead of commenting if the 37% no dev funds are trolls you should sit together and discuss why only 10% are in favour of 20%!
Totally agree, i mentioned several times that it seems that the ECC lost connection with the community, that they live in a total different world where price and everything else has no place.
I’am not sure, but this could be the outcome that the ECC/someone gets his paychecks no matter how good they perform, no matter what they deliver and no matter how good everything is managed.
No idea, it’s a miracle for me how so many wrong decisions and statements are made in such short time.
So is the foundation supportive for no protocol change and no dev fee or 10% or 5% or whatever.
They function right now with $500k, why shouldn’t they function if they don’t get $1M is out of my understanding. If a company at some point has less funds than there must be made some economical changes and adjustments and that’s actually a good thing to become more effective with less funds.
As i don’t get any info about the wages structure within the ECC (despite asking several times for such!) i could imagine that a good amount are paid as bonuses, to advisors, bonuses to shareholders and such like. With less funds i agree that they can’t make estiminated million dollar investments into Sharks or Agority, but that’s not a must at all.
It’s amazing that there are people definding the current spending/expenses/funding without even knowing where these funds go exactly. We only have a vague idea, nothing else.
I agree, it’s not a 100% reflection of the Zcash Community sentiment, but it’s at least the best indicator so far outside your guys/girls echo chamber and i personally would take it more serious.
And by the way, this forum with it’s 10 posters isn’t a reflection either.
