Dan Larimer has proposed an ambitious roadmap for the experimental and potentially revolutionary EdenOS.
For those who need a quick refresher on EdenOS, here’s how Dan Larimer describes the project:
“The goal of EdenOS is to give the EOS community the most decentralized, transparent, democratic, governance process of any blockchain. In particular, it is more important than ever for the community to have a means of reaching consensus on who to trust to utilize community funds for the benefit of everyone.”
The first iteration will elect its members through a manual political playoff process conducted over Zoom video conference calls. The goal is to prove the EdenOS governance process works in a transparent and verifiable manner before being fully implemented on-chain. The roadmap also revealed that Brock Pierce is involved and will leverage the non-profit organisation known as the EOS Alliance to act as a bridge between the real world and the Eden community. They’ll also be awarded part of the budget to eventually move the governance process on-chain.
As for a budget for this first EdenOS election, the project will request the 1.9 million EOS that is currently located in the “eosio.ramfee” account. These funds would only be released AFTER the election and will need to be approved by block producers at that time.
Assuming 1000 members and all groups successfully appointing representatives then the outcome would be:
- 1 Level 3 representative with a budget of 500,000 EOS
- 10 Level 2 representative with a budget of 50,000 EOS each
- 100 Level 1 representatives with a budget of 5,000 EOS each
Note that you can be a representative at all 3 levels and would receive the sum of the budgets for each level.
Here are some of the highlights of the proposed draft roadmap:
Beginning in Q2 this year, there will be a request to block producers for 1.9 million EOS currently located in the eosio.ramfee account. The goal is to have 1000+ community members onboarded into EdenOS by that time.
July 4th could be the possible date for first EdenOS elections – EOS Independence Day
Funds would then be distributed and representatives can start utilizing them to achieve the goals dictated by the community consensus.
Development on smart contracts and interfaces to automate the process could begin in Q4 2021.
Followed by development and testing of the EdenOS contract and interface in Q1 2022.
If all goes according to plan, EdenOS contracts could be deployed in Q2 in preparation for the 2022 election.
Chinese, Korean and Spanish communities may start to form at that time utilizing the new software on-chain governance tools.
We could be having our 2nd EdenOS election by Q3 2022, at which point Block producers would vote on whether to fund EdenOS with 0.25% inflation.
