Analysis Of Steemit Alliance Structure Proposals

In a few days, the entire steemit community will gather at the voting polls to decide which structure the steemit alliance will incorporate to operate. The process has been been protracted and this is to ensure only the best is chosen and to ensure that everyone has a voice in deciding which proposal will be considered at the end of the day.
After many weeks of deliberation, the ideas have been streamlined to the final 5 proposals that will be all given a fair chance to be implemented. The final five were listed in detail on this post on the @steemitalliance account.
