I am reading this late as always. Feels like I can never catch up with you, Asher :)
I don't remember who I was discussing this with earlier. But when we do project management, and we are half-spend compared to the budget, we will likely get fired. This is simply because, if a corporation allocate some money for a project as a budget, and that money is under spend; then two things must be happening:
- Planning was inaccurate; that money could have been spent elsewhere in the corporation as multiple projects compete for the same limited budget.
- Proposals that could benefit the corporation further, was stalled due to mismanagement of fund
This raises multiple questions. Hive is not a corporation, and nobody allocated the funds in DHF. It is semi-automated, and stakeholders only votes proposal to get funded. Therefore, there is very limited functionality.
Although I am aligned, that many proposals can be funded, however, I still struggle with what is currently funded and the cost-benefit ratio. For example, currently Proposal #68 for Vessel Wallet is funded for 150 HBD/day. I understand its a nifty tool. I even recently saw an update on it, regarding an option to include it within Ledger Nano wallet. However, I ask a simple question:
how many users does Vessel wallet has?
10 - 100 - 1000?
What is the purpose of a desktop wallet where majority of the hive users stake remains powered up and integrated with front-end UI?
This is just an example. I am not singling any individual or proposals out. If we can't have a merit-demerit discussion about a proposal or its utility publicly, we are doomed.
