Summary : This proposal is to increase the external slots from 800 to 900.
Background : Currently, there are 800 external slots out of the max 1000 slots of the harmony blockchain. Our goal is to have fully external slots by EOY. So this proposal is to further reduce the number of internal slots.
Motivation : With this proposal, it will change external slots available to external validators from 800 to 900. This will further lower the median of the stakes, and potentially increase the number of unique smaller validators. This is another step towards the fully externalized validators and fully externally owned network.
Specification : Change the number of internal slots to 25, in the sharding config file. (harmony/mainnet.go at 7fbee8049d6d9e5f6e3c6ed458ab11117e81a2f1 · harmony-one/harmony · GitHub). This will require another hardfork.
Suggested voting options : yes or no
