DeCentraSteem in easy words and grafics
What is important to make Steem strong? “Communities – not rewards!” That’s the answer many Steemians give. So let’s start to build a foundation with this purpose: Strengthen communities!
How to do so? Decentralised! We are on blockchain, aren’t we? Furthermore, research shows, decentralised structures are the best choice. They are really flexible and effective when people have a common purpose.
What is an easy-to-build decentralised structure? A working circle with 5 Steemians is easily set up, isn’t it? Everybody can do that. For marketing. For development. For business. For charity…. And there you go:
A group of interacting working circles is the decentralised structure we have been looking for.
How to start something like this? Let’s start with 4 working circles. The community elects their members. Circle no 1 – strategy – finds out which direction to go. You can do that together with the community. No central board is necessary. Have a look here. Steemians have already done this! Circle no 2 – funding – takes care that money comes in. First talks will be with Steemit Inc. Circle no 3 – the trustees – are administrators of the funds. They don’t decide. They just take care, that money goes where the other working circles want it to go. Circle no 4 – rules –helps cooperation of the circles works well and newcomers have fair chances to bring forward their ideas.
More than four working circles would be good? Sure. Five Steemians can set up another one, make a plan, ask for some budget. If they convince two other working circles that their plan is good they can start working. A good plan will fit into the strategy. And it won't take too much funds, maybe even add some.
Every circle will have to do a post every two weeks. So everybody can check if they are doing a good job. You think, they should do better? Don't just complain. Find four others who think the same way. Ask the circle to do some change. If they don’t, have some discussions with them. If you can’t agree with them, every Steemian active in a circle will be asked to vote on how to proceed: one woman/one man – one vote.
One purpose! Nine rules! That’ s all it takes to set up a decentralised foundation for Steem – almost.
Three things are missing: you, your ideas and your vote for one of the foundation proposals. (link to be added)
