This post is a placeholder for the current voting rules and latest proposals of the Saturn DAO. Later on this topic shall be forked into chain-specific DAO discussions. However, at least this year all DAOs will launch with identical set of rules.
- Quadratic voting was proposed by Glen Weyl as the economically optimal method of corporate governance, and could thus be applicable to DAO governance as well. The problem with application of quadratic voting to governing a DAO is the lack of one human - one identity concept. An individual could potentially own multiple private keys that have control of voting tokens. As such, we will initially roll the DAO our with flat voting: one token = one vote. I would be curious to hear a discussion of other voting mechanisms.
- What is the appropriate threshold? Obviously, we could say if 50% + 1 vote is in favor, then the change is approved. However, we do need to take laziness into account - will people actually show up and vote? Maybe a test vote could provide us with some estimates.
If you have more questions - ask them and let’s keep the discussion going.
