We have an asset priority poll coming up on August 12 at 4pm UTC which is scheduled to run for 7 days.
This poll meant to give the community, governance, and the interim risk team a heads up on which assets to focus on first. It will also allow us to collect some information about general levels of interest for some tokens. Unlike most polls in the system, there are no requirements to justify, prove, validate or defend the poll, or the results it produces. This is simply establishing the order of work to be done leading up to MCD launch
The tricky part here is that there is no facility in the portal to allow us to drag and drop a list of items into the order a voter would like to see.
We can reverse engineer some solutions though.
Option #1: One poll for all the assets
In this model we’d have a single poll which includes seven options to choose from:
Which asset do you think the community should evaluate first?
Because we can only pick one choice in a poll, users can only select their #1 choice. At the end of the poll we would tally up the stake weight for each asset types and order them that way.
Option #2: Yes/No poll for each asset
We have seven concurrent polls, one for each asset. Each poll contains the question:
“Do you wish to prioritize this asset?”
This allows voters to express their interest in each one. The total MKR staked for NO would cancel out MKR staked for YES for each token. If drunk whale comes along and votes No to all of them we would order by least negative votes.
Option #3: Weighting poll for each assets
This is a bit of an outlier option. We have seven concurrent polls, each poll contains the question:
“How would you rate the priority of this asset?”
In this set up we would allocate a weight to each response.
High == 4,
Low == 2. This allows us collect more detailed signals as each asset has a numerical modifier attached to the stake weight. Gets a bit complicated though.
At the risk of getting meta, here is a poll to determine what kind of poll we should put in our polling system:
EDIT: Options two and three previously contained a selection “Don’t evaluate.” It has been removed as per the conversation in the thread.
- Option 1: One poll for all the assets
- Option 2: Yes/No poll for each asset
- Option 3: Weighting poll for each asset
- None of the above, I have an idea I’ll explain below.
This poll will close on August 5th.
