We classify policies within these categories: Technical, Ecosystem, and Risk. Technical: Technical policies define the routing protocol itself as well as the scope within which new proposals can be made – either to strengthen safety, enabling new economic opportunities, or enhance the functionality. Ecosystem: Ecosystem policies are defined more broadly. In general, they provide context for possible markets and collaterals accepted, applications running on top of the Protocol, or other ecosystem enhancing developments. Risk: To mitigate risks and strengthen the safety precautions undertaken by the Protocol, risk policies provide a way of evaluating risks for approving and implementing new developments, both in advance of putting a proposal to vote as well as to make an informed decision during the voting process. This touches on both technical and ecosystem policies, and includes but is not limited to:
  • Compatibility of the proposed integration with the HUMAN routing Protocol
  • Cost vs. reward
  • Ease of implementation
  • Ability to execute
  • Business model/incentive
  • Behavior and reputation
  • Collision with existing features/markets
  • Disabling a fraudulent actor
Each proposal needs to enter all required information to allow for an informed decision-making process. Uncomplete proposals will automatically be rejected. Required information may include, among other things:
  • Financial requirements;
  • The team and gaps within it;
  • Value proposition;
  • Timeframe/roadmap; and
  • If technical, scope/architecture proposition
