There has been much debate of late in the EOS community across the globe regarding vote-buying/voter kickbacks. This debate is healthy as we embark on this journey into the uncharted waters.
Thomas Cox of Block.One has confirmed to EOS New York directly that voter kickbacks would be strictly prohibited by the proposed constitution and would be met with penalties.
A couple of things to note.
- The constitution(s) being written is a proposal, it must be ratified by the community.
- The penalties which Thomas mentioned are still being thought through, are not yet final, and also must be ratified.
We hope they see Thomas’ comments and join us in the global debate.
Additional Note: We have since retracted our request for a video from Thomas so please do not expect one unless Thomas chooses to record one of his own volition.
