Return all AKITA tokens to their source (Vitalik’s sending address) making either an explicit or implicit message that these tokens were sent to the GitCoin multisig address in error.
- My first concern is that by “accepting” the receipt of these tokens, the GitCoin Mutlisig holders take on unwanted social and (potentially) financial liabilities. I leave it to the community to better define what “liabilities” means. The point is that the liabilities of accepting the tokens outweighs the benefits.
- Since the tokens first appeared, the conversation about them has taken on an expected, but completely unwanted, negative tone. The AKITA token holder community seems to think GitCoin owes them something (social liability). By returning the tokens both the negativity and any sense of a responsibility relative to the AKITA community is removed.
- The longer it takes to make a decision vis-a-vi these tokens, the worse the situation becomes. In the hope that the GitCoin community quickly return the focus its limited resources to its primary mission, resolving this as quickly as possible is best.
- The long term outcome of succumbing to the un-invited demands of the AKITA community will cause other new tokens to follow their lead. If we legitimize AKITA, other tokens will seek similar legitimization. The action we take is precedent setting. The GitCoin community does not want similar situations to happen in the future. Doing anything other than simply washing its hands, will lead to many future examples of tokens seeking legitimacy through GitCoin. As a result, GitCoin’s legitimacy will be diminished.
The following two things are specifically NOT being proposed. If anyone wishes to do any of the below, they should create their own proposal.
- I am not proposing that the tokens be burned.
- I am not proposing that the GitCoin multisig singers should send the tokens anywhere other than Vitalik’s original sending address.
