I wonder if anyone is interested in helping me with a proposal to establish a ‘ruleset’ for what I see to be a very likely eventuality in the future.
Given the experience with Akita and all of it’s immense downside, I think the Stewards of GitCoin should establish a few simple rules concerning ‘token drops’.
I propose that any token drop that appears in the GitCoin Multisig without a prior vote by some committee of or the entire group of stewards be rejected by immediately (or within some time frame) sending the tokens back to the sender.
Reasoning: to better protect GitCoin’s community good will and avoid the ugly, unnecessary nonsense that’s gone on related to the Akita token incident including the ‘creative interpretation’ and near-blackmail as has been revealed on Twitter.
The idea is that in order for any token to remain in the GitCoin multisig, it must have been ‘whitelisted’ in some way first. This will eliminate the need to make any decision and allow the Stewards to act without needing to justify their behavior as it will have been already established.
