Do you want to call it something other than “Kek’s funding proposal,” like ideally a descriptive oneliner?

“fund ECC for 2 more years”?

Okay that works. I’ll update the thread title — let me know if you don’t like something about it.

@mistfpga has a detailed guide to writing a ZIP in the works :slight_smile:

Just fixing a few typos and changing the wording to be consistent. will have it up very soon.

(in the mean time if you look at the headers of one of my zips it links to the 2 generation old version which has changed but will give you a good start, it hasn’t changed that significantly.)

Let me know if you would like some help.


imo, until some of these unknowns are more clear; exactly why we should keep the funding model as close to current model as possible.


Cool, will highlight that. Sorry had some firefighting to do at work today. will upload the probably already outdated template in 10 mins or so.

this is exactly why we should kick the can down the road. we don’t need to be doing this to ourselves. ZEC is already filled with self inflicted wounds. 3 years time we’ll have a well thought out plan. markets will like some clarity.

might have an idea to lower ECC % payouts but possibly increasing price for ZEC by lowering inflation… problem is these ideas take time to iron out, and not sure about legal issues.

kick the can down the road - imo, should forget about the exotic proposals for now. give the market some clarity.

kick the can down the road

Got one small problem, it is a nice an simple proposal so, and to be fair it has its merits (in my humble opinion) can you clarify what happens at the halving, does the fund continue at 10% of total issuance or do you mean it drops to 5% of total issuance?

Is that 20% of the current reward, so 40% of the next. I don’t think it is, but does this allow enough distance to kick the can? I assume you mean 5% of total issuance - the ecc stated this might not be enough. but I think it should be for a two year delay.

please confirm,



disclaimer, this was proposed by KEK, they are unable to continue with this proposal so they have asked me to act as advocate I am pushing this zip forward unless @kek kek gets time and would like to come back and take over

2 - Terminology

To understand this ZIP it is critical that people understand the right terminology so their requirements can be quickly checked.


Have special meaning and people should familiarise themselves with it. -

For clarity in this zip I define these terms:

  • Spirit is defined as what is the intended outcome of the zip.[2]

3 - Out of Scope for this proposal:

  • Everything except moving the development fund end date.

4 - Abstract/Spirit

To keep to the current structure of the ECC receiving funding from the block distribution for 2 year worth of blocks after the halving (im too tired to get the exact block numbers will put it in the pull request)

5 - Motivation

To give more time to work out the full ramifications.

6 - Requirements

  • Nothing about distribution recipients changes.

7 - Specification

  • The ECC’s percentage is capped at their projected 1.1m USD costs a month.
  • This number MUST not be greater than 10% of total block distribution of any one block.
  • This MUST end 2 years after the halving (will add block numbers) at block number xyz.

Raised objections and issues so far:

  • This is just kicking the can down the road.
  • The zfnd has raised objections to a single point of failure

Implications to other users.

  • The knock on impact of this zip to exchanges and wallet developers maybe non trivial.

[1] - <-I like this one best, dont know which the ECC prefers.
[2] - If there is contradiction between Spirit and any other part of the proposal that needs to be addressed. in the even it is not addressed Spirit is assumed to overrule all.


Pull request done:


could this be short named “kek the can”?


note this post is not a reflection on kek or his username, it is context

I was thinking of doing that, or similar. But due to things like this and over reactionary people. we cannot have nice things:

Note: before you read that article the word kek has nothing, nothing to do with white identarian politics.

I thought the fairest I could be with the proposal is to make it acceptable to as many people as possible. I didn’t want to be seen as non impartial on a proposal I didn’t make.

Boring I know. but hey, that is what I decided would be best.

For reference: kek is lol in Warcraft (hoard to alliance) and kekekekeke is lololololol in korea. - mainly from starcraft I think, but I have seen it in quite a few games -

It is now mainly used by people who are “shit posters” (something kek said he does and there is nothing wrong with it. It is just people having fun - I remember where he said writing his proposals would interfere with his shit posting. I laughed, which was the intent of his post. turns out high winds stopped him in the end, heh).

It was a forced meme by shit posters that the mainstream media ran with and grabbed their torches and pitchforks. - the whole time that was the intent of the shit posters. They did the same thing with the OK hand gesture.

some people might not know this, but good ole kek was director of the kekistani bureau of economics before normies ruined kekistan.

kek is actually an ancient egyptian deity. the “god of chaos” …praise kek!

also, kek means lol


See 100% shit poster :slight_smile:

what do you think of sargon?

This is also true but found out after. and it just so happened kek is represented as a frog in ancient Egypt which coincided with pepe, people went crazy. and the rest is history. but a lot of people still seem to think it is something to do with fascism - it is not and never was.

It did peak around the time of HWNDU. at which point the normies took it over. Is big man Tyrone still around?

imo, sargon was one of the people that ruined kekistan by popularizing it. tyrone, peace be upon him, is probably wondering the earth lost with no place to go now that kekistan has been destroyed.
