One of the obvious design goals for Threshold Network governance is to empower our community to proposal and implement meaningful changes to the upgraded network with minimal engagement friction.
Since Threshold Network is a community driven project we want to explore all potential ways of empowering our community even on an individual level. One idea is to experiment with governance amplifiers that serve to increase the vote weight of engaged community contributors in the governance system. The end goal of this system would be to reward active community members with increasing vote weights to more directly impact network decisions.
This could likely happen with onchain tweaks to the current state of GovenorBravo but a better approach is to delegate vote weight from team members or the Keep project to our active community members. This approach does not require technical lift and there is no artificial dilution on voting power across the network.
There are many ways to go about implementing this. It could be taken as far as a community wide level up type program with weight caps and clear guidelines on how to accumulate governance amplifiers based on tangible contributions and participation in the Threshold Network community ecosystem.
What do people think about governance amplifiers? Are they practical? Empowering? Exciting? Is this something we want to think more about and experiment with in our community?
