Absolutely! I’m proud of the call the foundation took to reconsider the decision and engage with the community for a vote on ApeChain. It demonstrates a commitment to respecting the structure, community, and the overall process. Each step we take is a learning opportunity, and I’m excited about our progress we doing together.
On Monday Marc (Polygon) said on twitter spaces that in light of none of the others agreeing not to vote (in particular Machi & horizon), he/they have now taken the decision to use their 10 million votes to counter others.
(Maybe the 6 million are part of the 10 - not sure I’d have to look, but tl;dr is Marc confirmed they will use their apecoin to vote on apechain.)
Without a doubt, it is one of the most discussed AIP’s.
This is very important, it means that each member here expresses their opinion and possible solutions, I’m just following the arguments, to learn more from everyone.
Lots of smart members.
Still astonished that we’ve determined it’s okay to have a sitting Special Council member “influence” the vote of what would be a seemingly important decision for the DAO, rather than recuse themselves. Supreme Court Issues - SMH
Regarding Influence (e.g have an effect on something) @capetaintrippy already stated that @Airvey was not part of the RFP discussions/preparations.
Given that anyone can buy APE on a DEX and then vote according to 1 APE = 1 Vote, so people can show their alignment based on their voting choices. I don’t think you are saying certain people shouldn’t vote on any specific AIP, as this would create all kinds of Governance problems. Personally (though my APE amount is not massive) I have decided, while I am a Governance Steward that I will delegate it to the Bull Delegation that is being setup (I will vote in that snapshot, though I am only a small percentage of all the NFTs in those collections).
Actually, I am and have been suggesting that anyone that runs and serves on the Special Council should be separated from voting or having influence on AIPs. Their role and responsibilities should be as follows:
