A number o questions were posted in the previous thread. But OK.
I collect here some questions that I think are interesting (to me at least):
Q1 from @iammeeoh ) I understand correctly from your post that the validator node and its rewards can be considered property of MakerDAO, as opposed of the Foundation? How can we manage these asset rewards (STAKE tokens?) in the most efficient and transparent way?
Q2 from @iammeeoh ) How do you plan to decentralise (from you) as much as possible the Maker validator node? For example, how do you plan to deal with the rewards/tokens received from the Network, Staking etc? What about the management of the private keys? What if other people join the “xDAI working group” and need to share with you these secrets? Etc. The question of course also includes things like transparency (towards the MakerDAO governance), etc.
Q3 from @iammeeoh ) due to Ethereum fees, the minimum dust/vault-size is currently set to 100usd and it could increase over time. Do you think xDAI-Network could provide some useful options for providing MakerDAO services to the less rich?
@ejbarraza also writes: "I would love to see MakerDAO explore using xDAI if only as an experiment for possibly scaling in the future. "
Q4 from @LongForWisdom: Do you intend to run the validator as an individual (which would be completely fair, imo, given that you ran it yourself prior to the Foundation being interested,) or do you intend to run it on behalf of MakerDAO?
Q5 from @LongForWisdom: I think @iammeeoh is correct in that if you’re running it on behalf of the DAO, we need to figure out answers to some of the questions he posed. Namely:
- How to decentralize this function?
- What happens with the validator rewards?
- How to ensure resiliency + uptime?
Q6 from @LongForWisdom: The idea of a working group is a good one, I think. As far as I’m aware, developers within the Foundation are not currently prioritising L2 solutions. Maybe if we’re creating a working group we should make it L2 focused generally, rather than specifically focused on xDAI?
Edit, new question:
Q7 from @iammeeoh: what is the address of MakerDAO’s validator among those of https://blockscout.com/poa/xdai/validators ?
