Also, I agree with the idea but I think most people would want one person = one vote instead of your system?

tbh, after learning how it works most people support the idea of one coin = one vote instead of one person = one vote.

We chose the one coin = one vote for two important reasons:
1.  We believe that those who have a bigger stake in the outcome should have a bigger voice in any decision, just like shareholders in a corporation.
2.  Creating a one person = one vote voting system defeats the purpose and technology behind decentralization because a trusted-third-party is required to make sure that one person get one, and only one, vote, which would inherently centralize the voting.



Thanks for answering questions.

I see you guys make the Bitcoin Scrypt votes before the Bitcoin votes.  The vote about changing Bitcoin Scrypt coin name before Bitcoin could be good for Bitcoin Scrypt.

I just sent you PM.

Got it.  Just responded.  Thx for offer to help.

  • VOTING DATE DEADLINE:  Is the voting date deadline confusing?  Is there a better way?

Good questions.  I'll try to give you my feedback on most of them after work.  Here is my answer to the first question.

No I don't think the voting date deadline thing is confusing.  We should just focus on the voting block deadline mostly.  The date thing is just a recommendation right?

More feedback after work.  Thanks.

Yes.  The voting date deadline is an estimate.  Not sure if "recommendation" is the right word but it does fit.

Questions: Is 48 hours enough time before an estimated voting date deadline to announce the block?  How best to estimate voting block deadline when mining hashes vary so much?

I think a little more heads up than 48 hours would be better.  I don't know your second question.

Questions: Should we consider an instant run-off system instead of having a separate run-off election if no answer gets >50% support?

Separate would be better so we would know what the real options are for the vote but that's just my opinion.

Questions: Any suggestions or comments on a better way to proceed for major votes besides using meta-votes?


I think meta-votes are definitely necessary.  More feedback after dinner tomorrow.

Vote to get Bitcoin-sCrypt listed on Cryptopia.  There are over 100 coins listed for voting and Bitcoin-sCrypt is one of the top coins (#1 in weekly user votes).  We only get one user vote per day so log in and vote when you get a chance.

It is mostly referred to as Bitcoin sCrypt but it is not required and some refer to it as Bitcoin Scrypt.

How about doing a pre-voting for a few names as a poll using this thread and take the finalists to the actual block-chain based vote?

BTW- I have 200 BTCs buried on Minpal for 18 months now (Blast from the past Smiley)

Questions:  Is once-a-month voting too frequent or not frequent enough?  Should Bitcoin-sCrypt coordinate with Bitcoin-core re voting?

I thought voting every two weeks was too often.  Once a month might be ok but we should not vote just to vote.  We should have things worth voting for.

I like that idea.  Maybe after the name meta-vote in case the vote fails and becomes a moot point.

Forgot to answer second question.  Yes we should coordinate with Bitcoin core because it could give Bitcoin Scrypt more publicity.

Questions:  Any other suggestions on a process or methodology to allow users to submit questions for the community to vote on (instead of giving developers sole discretion on what questions are presented to the community)?

Trick question?  Definitely allow us to suggest questions to be voted on.  I like the idea of listing them here.

Questions:  After the first vote, should we require +n confirmations in order for votes to count?  If so, how many +n confirmations should be required to address the problems mentioned?

This is tricky.  Need to think on this one.

That's a good idea.  We will look into a pre-poll.
