we-the-people: your witness

A new witness has been active for two weeks, his name is we-the-people.

we-the-people wants to put into practice a new type of witness, with a completely democratic management based on the logic of a user, a vote.

Here are the highlights:

  • the decisions concerning Hive's governance, regarding what little or much voice that we-the-people will have, and it depends on you, obviously, will be publicized and taken through surveys via Dpoll

  • every month 50% of the profits deriving from the writing of the blocks (excluding the maintenance costs of the server, today $ 30/month) will be equally distributed (one vote, one share) among all those who have kept their vote for the whole month (to avoid scrounge an activity check on users can be applied)

  • every month 30% of the profits deriving from the writing of the blocks (excluding the maintenance costs of the server, today $ 30/month) will be left as HP and used to vote on the posts of all those who have kept the their vote in a manner that will be decided by a Dpoll survey

Do we want to try to shift attention from HP to people together?

Many do not use all the 30 possible votes that can be given to witnesses, if there is one, why not vote for a witness who will share the profits of the block writing activity with you?

Thanks to those who want to give democracy a chance on Hive!

Actually we-the-people is #163 witness LOL, so the easy way to vote for us is using Hive Keychain:

You can also use PeakD:

Many people use less the all 30 witness vote, please use one of your remaining power to let we-the-people climb the rank and let you count more in the governance of Hive!

Buying witness votes and spamming transfer memos in not really democracy...

I think there is some wisdom in the spirit of this remark. However, I would have worded it differently:

Buying individual favor instead getting favor through policy agreement is what is wrong with democracy.

I read today from you and I want support your activities with my witness vote. Especially the rule "one vote - one share" is great.

Maybe you can also read my post in Hive-governance:

I think that we go in the same direction to strenghen the minority rights at this platform.

Hi @arcange, thanks for sending back this small trasfer.
Do you think that sending small amount by transfer is spamming users?
We take this idea from you:

and we think is not really spamming, you can just read it or ignore it.

If we send a lot of these transfers, yes, can be call it a spam, but only one, just to kindly ask to take a look to our witness, we think is not spamming.

We respect your opinion and will never send a transfer to you again, we are so sorry.

Have a nice day.

"Spamming is the use of messaging systems to send an unsolicited message (spam) to large numbers of recipients for the purpose of commercial advertising"
source: wikipedia

According to this definition, sending out 937 unsolicited transfers, begging people for their witness vote and linking to a post where you offer rewards for votes is indeed spamming.
Paying people to get a vote is all but democracy and more related to a commercial activity to me.

There is a HUGE difference with me sending a message to say thank you to the ones who did something on their own initiative!

So please don't mislead people by telling it's been one of my ideas.

All due respect but @aracange's spam is done AFTER someone has already voted for his witness.

Not taking sides, just saying..

every month 50% of the profits deriving from the writing of the blocks (excluding the maintenance costs of the server, today $ 30/month) will be equally distributed (one vote, one share) among all those who have kept their vote for the whole month (to avoid scrounge an activity check on users can be applied

I have voted for you as a witness.

By the way, what is Dpoll?

Dpoll is a decentralized poll app on the top Hive blockchain

great I was too looking for the polling :)

I agree with the points of your program. Voted as witness! Good luck.

+1

I'm about to cast my vote. Don't let us down!

trust but verify, it could be a plan of the mr justin ^^

Just voted for you as a witness! Bumped it up 3 spots on the ranks, hopefully more can vote for you as a witness. It's unfortunate how so many don't use their witness votes. If anyone wants to, they can set me as their proxy so you don't have to worry about it. I don't support many of the top 20 witnesses, I focus on the lower section to help folks along who are trying to start out.

I really like the proposal, it is a tremendous essay to assess a real balance. I'm running to vote .

I'm curious who the folks behind this project are? People we know from the chain, people with trust built with the community? Looks like the server funding comes from @thelord.oflords, but that account has only ever made one comment, so that doesn't tell us much.

I like the idea of a witness using direct democracy, and of further decentralization of funds through rewarding voters (though that will definitely get some flack as vote-buying), but I don't feel like I can just trust that these couple of posts are honest.

Hi @kennyskitchen,
I am the one that run the witness, @thelord.oflords is a friend of mine, but he does only curation and I think he never wrote a post in his life.
I think that, not only for we-the-people, we all must check time by time our votes for witness and trust but verify, as suggested by @sweecee.

Cool :-)

Well, I'll keep an eye on it, but for now I've given you my vote, about 33% of the total you had before.

Looking forward to seeing how it unfolds!

Thanks a lot!

An even EASIER way to vote is by going to a witness' profile in peakd, and voting right there :D

I know this is a swear word, but Tron representatives are similar, when you use your frozen Tron 'power' to vote on them they kick back a share weekly/daily, some give back more as bonus to those who are either loyal or spend a lot of power.. Over there it's more a competition about who can pay the most for votes.

I'm not saying you're trying to 'pay to win' - I actually like the idea and always wished that voting for Witnesses, especially if they were top 20, gave some kind of incentive like HP or liquid.. done in a similar way as the reward pool, so that the witnesse's could not control the vote reward themselves but it would all be done from the chain itself.

My ideas are always stupid though, but I'm glad you are at least reading the same book as me just I'm on the wrong page LOL

Well, you get my vote for this anyways :D
