Validator DAO Council Candidate: babylonodeONE
hey $ONE community, it’s babylonodeONE - an Independent Harmony Validator DAO Council Candidate.
A few words about me:
babylonodeONE is an old-school, staking-minded harmony validator participating in staking activities from the very origin testnet Pangaea. I’m a formerly Harmony employee (nv) and still a truly devoted believer. My feelings about Harmony DAO can be expressed in a simple quote: “It’s needed and it’s on time!”
Why I care about being elected to the Council
For me personally, a DAO is a great opportunity for everyone caring about the cloudless future for the project to take an active role by contributing to the rapidly developing and growing ecosystem of our fast and open blockchain. That means I want every single tiny ONE holder, a whaled investor, a validator and a delegator has an equal opportunity of taking part in the decision making process for the future of the project. This is doable even if it is not so obvious for now. But let me show you how I’d like to shape Harmony DAO to the borderless decentralized organisation for all!
Council Candidate Agenda
The Harmony Governance current state can be compared to the ordinary political structure with the many Political parties united into the Staking community of validators. These ‘parties’ have rights to make individual decisions via Snapshot using their voting power* (self and delegated stake).
Validator = ‘Political party’, managing personal and your voting power on its own.
But what if you want to personally participate in an important process of decision making? And your point of view is completely different from Validator’s you stake with, but your owned $ONE coins are not enough to run a validator which means you can’t vote on your own.
My point of view is that Governance should be fair for everyone holders and this one of the things I’d like to improve and implement as the DAO Council Member.
To this end, I propose to have special Governance voting nodes for those holders willing to participate in the decision making. For example, if the community is going to vote for “yes” or “no” decision - there will be ran 2 Governance nodes:**
- The ‘Yes node’ - voting power staked with this node will be used to vote for the Yes decision;
- The ‘No node’ - voting power staked with this node will be used to vote for the No decision;
We can even try now how Governance nodes will work. There’s the ‘babylonodeONE to Harmony Validator DAO Council’ to battle test the idea of Governance nodes with you, guys.
So, If you share my point of view on the fair Governance with equality for everyone as a basis you can already delegate to it. This will mean that you support my candidacy to the Council. All the voting power will be used for babylonodeONE at the voting stage on May 23rd.
My Commitment as the DAO Council Member at the very beginning:
Provide a fair access with equal rights to everyone $ONE holder to the Harmony DAO Governance (everyone must be and will be heard when it comes to Harmony DAO).
Productively cooperate with other Council Members and build basics for Harmony DAO Governance.
Communicate with everyone willing to participate in Governance, review their inputs (together with other Council Members) and give the green/red light to go to voting.
Build a strong communication pattern between The Core Team, Community and the DAO Governing Body.
Looking forward to being presented at reddit AMA starting on May 16th. @rocktheblockchain let me know what you need from my side to be involved.
@Cryptowolf, please help to promote this thread via telegram (if it’s possible and you think it brings value to the community);
* I completely support the opinion that Validators deserve the trust of presenting their delegators by voting using all the power of joint stake. But my guess is also that everyone can have a right to show his own opinion if it’s different from Validator he stakes with.
**The mechanism for implementing and using Governance nodes can be changed based on Governance needs, but it will always give the chance to everyone to vote! Governance is open to your inputs.
