while a specific community member is on a personal rampage battling proxies etc. I made my mind up and came to the conclusion that it might make sense to incentivize “direct” voting in Kyber 3.0.
How could it work: it should be pretty easy to differentiate between “normal” DAO users / voters and the few big pools (Binance, XToken, etc.) by checking their adresses. Now what about adding a incentive to the reward system - e.g. 2% of all rewards are shared to users (the big pools excluded) who vote directly on Kyber DAO (instead of delegating their vote).
Keeping in mind that EIP 1559 is upcoming and several gas-saving solutions like OPTIMISTIC are due to launch soon this might offer enough incentives (especially for the “first movers”) for average users to vote directly on the DAO.
While this is no short-term fix to make sure that voting is really “decentralized” it might be a viable solution for the middle-term, especially if EIP 1559 comes into play or even a gas-saving solution like OPTIMISTIC etc. is implemented.
What do you think?
