How do you make people participate in the DAO voting system?
Certainly not by making them feel like they have no chance of moving the needle in the first place.
At the same time, you can’t take away voting power from people who have invested early on and are now considered small whales, to make the system fairer. So what do you do?
Well, since name NFT owners have passed a vote to get voting points and landowners have voting power privileges - Why do wearables owners not have that?
The only reason that I can think of is that future L2 wearables minted on MATIC may be minted for a very low cost per NFT so those would not be a great measure of how invested their owners are in the game. This would incentivize spam wearables just to get VP. So that is out of the question, - for now. Future L2 MATIC wearables will not be included in this initiative.
But ETH Layer 1 wearables have a fixed supply (except for a few rewards still outstanding) and are well distributed across the community. Every wearable you own today is an L1 wearable.
What if owning those would give you additional voting power?
After all most of those were purchased, like names and lands. And those that were received as rewards prove active participation in the game and that should be worth something.
Yes, certain larger entities will gain some additional VP, too. But I believe the wider distribution of VP among the regular folks in Decentraland would increase the will to participate in the DAO and would better represent how invested someone is in the metaverse.
I would suggest to first decide if we want that and then have a second poll on how to tier the system based on the rarity category of the items.
What do you think? Do you want more voting power for your L1 wearables?
- YES, VP for my L1 wearables
- NO, no VP for my L1 wearables
