SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 13 February 2019

Blocktrades have given an update on the Steem Proposal System.

The Steem Proposal System has become Steem.DAO, and the decision on funding sources has been deferred.

Steem.DAO, and five other major projects, will be discussed by Ned Scott and others in Thursday's State of Steem Forum.



The Steem Proposal System becomes Steem.DAO, and other updates

Blocktrades who have been commissioned by Steemit Inc to develop the Steem Proposal System have published an update on the project.

The Steem Proposal System has been renamed to Steem.DAO (DAO = Decentralized Autonomous Organization) at the request of Steemit Inc.

A github repository forked from the Steem codebase has been set up for work on the project.

The decision on where the ongoing funding for the Steem.DAO should come from has been deferred.

The poll on whether to use an inflationary funding source has been a bit inconclusive so far, and with the available polling tools, I think it will be difficult to reach a solid conclusion on what source to use, even if inflation is the consensus approach to long term funding.

Therefore, I’m coming to the conclusion that the best thing to do is design the initial system as a pure donation system, then allow proposals to be made within the Steem.DAO itself to decide how to add future funding sources to the DAO’s budget.

One potential problem with the above idea could be that there wouldn’t be enough funds from donations to fund the proposals to add new funding sources, but I’m assuming Steemit’s initial donation should easily cover any such costs.

@tarazkp and @taskmaster4450 have provided commentary on the latest update...
