Stance on Vote Buying
EOS NodeOne stands against direct, quid-pro-quo vote buying. However, EOS NodeOne pledges to airdrop DApp tokens that it incubates to ALL EOS holders who exercised their voting rights.
The key point here is that even though you do NOT vote specifically for EOS NodeOne, if you have participated in the BP voting process, you will receive an airdrop. This is a compensation mechanism that does NOT reward voters for voting for certain candidates but yet incentivizes the ACT OF VOTING ITSELF.
The intention behind this is to promote EOS token holders to stake their tokens for the long-term. This way, we can expect to see an increase in BP voting activity as well as an increase in staked tokens.
This system will incentivize EOS holders to vote, REGARDLESS of who they vote for, and will return the benefits to both the holders and the BPs, creating a virtuous cycle that results in positive gains for all parties involved.
