It shouldn't need to be funded, it's supposed to be open source.

Are you suggesting for the software to be developed solely by volunteers?

Fundition.io Campaign

I'm not sure which of these involves not needing to sell STEEM to keep the wheels turning, but this one sounds the closest to that at least being a possibility.

Bottom line, I think the approach should support development without requiring continual downward pressure on the price of STEEM and vulnerability to periodic market lows.

Only after premined stake that was set aside for dev is removed.

Better all of the above.

Voting for "self-funded", not listed in the options above.

Can you elaborate?

it feels to me that if we used inflation to finance a treasury, that would be self funding.

There's two sides to this. One side in my view consists of two aspects: 1. if we somehow pre-fund any projects, we will be have that funding exploited and sub-par work produced. 2. if we fund net-# then we can be rest assured that only quality work will be supported (or no funding will be released).

The other side consists of the fact that we want to get away from the notion that "someone else" should always pay for all development. I have to fund my projects and all my contributions. So do others. Their hours on Github don't get funded. Do we want to say that that time and effort are of lower quality and value than potential future contributions that would "require" funding?

Let me think about my answer here for a bit. I'll put up a post if I can figure something out.

I really dislike how the "proposal voting system" is even listed as an option,. Isn't this simply passing on our worries to someone else?
