Hi fellow Citizens,
Seeing the (unfortunate) fallout regarding Flashstakes potential security issue I was thinking maybe we should consider a “financial relief fund” to help out people that got caught in the crossfire? This could apply to future projects as well, to minimize some risks.
Even though I think the team is trying their absolute best to accommodate everyone, in the end there will be some people left disappointed. More often than not, those people might not be Blockzero Citizens. After this incident, they might not ever become a citizen, being disappointed with their first interaction with our community/projects. They will miss out on awesome things and we will miss out on a potential awesome member to our community.
Random thoughts below…
What if we allocated a part of the Blockzero Index into the fund, or even by default used part of the index to cover for incidents like the Flashstake security issue (if that’s not already happening right now)?
Or maybe let people donate parts of their XLP/XSI earnings? I’ve seen mentioned in the forums some people think they earn to much XSI, they’d have a good incentive to donate parts of their earnings into the fund.
The xio.app interface could even have a “donate” button.
Maybe it could be an exclusive perk for becoming a citizen, as a way to incentivize people to actively participate within the projects while at the same time giving a feeling of safety.
