Name: Member Verification and Privatization of the Forums
Status: Draft -> Closed
Scope: To validate the forum members so that investors or community members can distinguish between DN holders, investor speculators, and foreign interests
This RFC proposes a simple addition to the forums in the form of a Ren logo next to a user’s name that will verify that member as a DN holder, Investor, or everyone else. This is an important aspect of Governance in order to distinguish opinions and ensure that policies are being driven by stakeholders and not outside interests.
Option for discussion: Closed Community vs Open Community: Should these forums be open to the public or should they be exclusive to Dark Node Holders and Ren Holders?
The process could include a connection through meta-mask which could validate wallets of DN holders, Ren holders vs. non-Ren holders. Such that members of the community whether inside or outside can see and understand with confidence the position of the opinions being presented.
Reasons for: Outside influences can deter, distract, and manipulate the vote of the DAO in ways that could benefit outside party’s interests above the interests of the stakeholders.
Reasons against: I would like to hear why the stakeholders of REN would not want to keep opinions, forecasts, and votes private until the Team is ready to release information formally.
Implementation: May take some developer time to confirm and validate the DN holders and Ren wallets, but Meta-mask has a simple API I don’t see how this would be a huge amount of work for the security of our DAO.
