This is a really good blog post:
It makes me think: How can we make the Zcash blockchain and the Zcash coins be part of the future governance protocol a hundred years from now?
It also makes me think: what if I were talking to an “immutabilist” who thought that the consensus rules should never be changed after a coin launched? But I thought that new ideas learned after the initial launch of the coin should be used. Then I might say to that person, Okay, the consensus rules of the original coin are immutable. But, after four years, let’s make a new coin with mostly the same rules as the original coin, but some differences, and let’s begin its life by airdropping the new coin to the owners of the previous coin. And then we could do this every four years, integrating new ideas that we’ve learned since the last time.
What if we did A Future Friendly Fork, not every four years, but every month? What if we did it every block?
