I am not in favour of the alert system for both Core and/or Electrum wallet. Past events has shown that quite a number of users has lost funds due to phishing message issued through the system.
Look at DASH, masternode voting was a desaster… we didn`t implement it for a good reason…
One community member, one vote. would be perfect. i can`t see any better way to check as via the forum account. Otherwise it is hard to control, especially because we are a privacy coin.
I like the idea of Quadratic Funding, it makes sense so no single person or small group can milking the fund.
i guess, in reality there would be a poll in the forum and the community can vote? the commitee will check the votes, calculate what amount the fund will add in and make the payment in the end?
