I hear rumors that it’s hard to “gather sentiment”… to determine “What the community wants.”
This is not the case.
Voting can be (almost) trivially implemented with escrowed zcash payments.
Suppose there’s some issue with two states in contention “A”, and “B”.
I want to vote for “B”.
In a z2z transaction, I send a 0-zatoshi transaction to a published z-address known to be the “Vote For B” address. The EMF for this transaction publishes a viewing key for an “escrow” address that holds a quantity of zcash proportional to my strength belief in “B”.
The published rules of the voting system specify how long the vote-weighting ZEC must be held in escrow.
The system “represents” the Zcash “community” accurately. Those with more ZEC have more at stake in the future of Zcash, they should have representation in proportion to that stake.
Now that this problem is solved we can move on.
