I have to admit that I am a bit concerned. The majority of the proposals only aims at ‘How can we make the life of people already in HOPR better’ – despite the fact that there is already a staking program.
This tendency feels short-sighted and neglects the fact that HOPR’s eventual success depends on adoption and on the growth of an ecosystem around HOPR. And not in subsidizing hardware for ~ 130 people who are already in elevated positions anyways or in airdropping a few tokens to every wallet already holding HOPR.
I’ve seen this mindset in a lot of DPOS projects before, where delegates are quite regularly the persons to make decisions. Most of the time they just care about their own advantage, which is toxic for the overall project mid- to longterm.
In this DAO, people should think about the easy question: What would be actions so advantageous for other people so that they join HOPR/build on HOPR etc.? And not: how can we get the max out of it?
And for purely pragmatic people → catalyzed adoption will make your HOPR balance way more worth longterm than a few free additional tokens now.
