I think that Grin needs to spread passion.
The power of a cryptocurrency lays on its community that is composed by various actors: miners, devs, investors, holders, firms and users. Every subject contribute in some way and the key could be achieved making the community inclusive for everyone. This is similar to our society with the difference that in the former case the structure has completely to be built. Like in ‘development economics’ this isn’t a result, but a path composed by various steps (composed by various paths) that answer to different questions. And these questions are ordered for importance and the answers can be the keys of the game theory questions.
These questions are:
- WHY Grin?
- HOW Grin would achieve this?
- WHAT is Grin?
This video shows what I’m trying to explain: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4ZoJKF_VuA]
The first question is tied with the philosophy of grin. People are moved by believes and then by technology and this combination make sustainability in the long run. It can be useful to have a list of books/articles/papers (must reads) chosen by users and the council (ehm the Knights of the Grin table ) and shared by the community, that explains exactly the philosophy and the believes of Grin.
The second question is tied with game theory incentives and composes the structure of the cryptocurrency. This can be achieved in different ways and having answered to the first question make clearer how to obtain the result. Blockchain resolves the problem of consensus sociologically and not only technologically through incentives to maintain the chain and for this reason it could be useful have some incentive-mechanism to let grow and consolidate the community and not only the blockchain. For instance, instead of giving airdrops, the council and miners can initially publish some easy jobs that the community can do (guides to mine, ui, git problems, research) and get rewarded with grins (after the mainnet but decided before). Another idea could be to have a multisig wallet managed by the council that delegates some jobs in that way (just a hint). It’s very important the initial distribution.
The last question depends on all the actors but principally on developers that are the builders. In that question we have the technology that gains consensus and the answer is the result. Cryptocurrencies are an act of coordination and all these questions must be answered synergistically.
What’s your thoughts?
