提议Irisnet销毁部分官方持有通证(Propose Irisnet burn part of the official holding tokens)


#1

Part 1 提案背景:
(Background)

目前,Irisnet官方持有通证比例较高。
The proportion of the official holding tokens is relatively high.

Irisnet的通证分配比例如下:
The original distribution is as follow

私募出售:25%
边界智能团队:15%(4年线性释放)
Tendermint团队:10%(2年线性释放)
Iris基金会:15%(基金会运营支持)
生态建设:30%(生态建设和其它合作伙伴奖励)
Cosmos Hub空投:5%

可以计算出,开发团队、基金会和生态预留资金合计达通证总量的70%。
Total official holding: 70%

Part 2 官方持有高比例通证可能引发的问题:
(Some possible adverse consequences)

过高的官方持仓比例可能引发或者已经导致以下问题:

  1. 不符合部分主流交易所的上币规则(如币安,coinbase等均对官方持仓有限制要求);
  2. 主力资金没有信心对Iris进行长期操作,因为担忧官方持仓流入二级市场。
  3. 以上原因对Irisnet目前相对过低的市值负有责任。

作为一个基础商用公链,过低的项目市值,不利于促进开发者活跃度和发展生态,对验证节点和安全性可能也有负面影响。

Irisnet的另一个重要目标是发展Defi,但作为Defi平台本身应该具备一定市值规模,本身即是市场上的优质资产,如ETH是一个正面案例。

这可能将形成某种程度的恶性循环。对Irisnet长远发展造成不利影响。
Overall, relatively low market value can lead to a vicious circle in the long term.

Part 3 销毁建议
(The Proposal of Burn)

综上所述,提议Irisnet销毁官方持有通证的50%。具体如何分配由开发团队和基金会协商决定。
Propose irisnet burn 50% tokens of the official holding part.

欢迎社区对此展开讨论!

建议:
边界智能团队:保留10%
Tendermint团队:保留5%
IRIS基金会:保留15%
其他非流通的全部销毁。

支持该建议!
I strongly support this suggestion!

个人认为生态建设的30%占比极不合理。
Personally, I hold the view that the totally thirty percent IRIS for ecological construction is very unreasonable.

从我参与的币乎直播、春节、元宵等等活动放送的红包来看,每个红包含有的IRIS基本都只有数万个。这与生态建设预留的6亿个总量相距甚远。
As to me, I have attended several activities, such as the bihu.com live, Spring Festival and Lantern Festival. Each red pocket that follows such activity merely contains tens of thousands IRIS, and this amount is far away from the six hundred million IRIS reserved for ecological construction.

至于grant生态团队这个职能,实际上和基金会的职能是有所重合的。
As for granting ecological team, there is actually some overlap with the foundation’s function.

因此,个人建议主要销毁生态建设这部分的IRIS来提振市值。
In conclusion, I suggest that mainly burn the IRIS for ecological construction to boost market value.

希望IRIS一切顺利!
Wish IRIS all the best!

如何能私聊到提议者呢? 有很多事情想讨论

非常感谢你的提议!IRIS基金会综合考虑认为:直接销毁大比例通证的方式过于简单化,不利于IRISnet的长期发展。但基金会计划对生态发展基金的使用进行优化。

生态发展基金最初占初始发行量的30%,截止今天 (2020.4.10) 占总量的26.67%,过去一年多IRIS基金会的生态发展基金主要用于:

  • 委托:面向优秀的验证人,参与保证网络安全(这部份占了最大头)
  • 拨款 (Grants):面向技术顾问、开发者、社群积极分子
  • 空投:基金会或合作机构主导的社群推广活动
  • 销毁:全部委托收益和部分本金按时销毁以保证实际通胀为0

为了鼓励社区参与委托,提高网络的自发委托率,我们计划推出委托促进计划,为生态发展基金增加两个新用途:

  • 直接奖励社区委托人
  • 直接奖励符合特定标准的验证人

随着社区自发委托率不断提高,基金会将相应地逐步减少委托,撤回的IRIS通证不排除会部分销毁 – 具体做法将视生态发展情况随时做出调整并对外公布。

同时,针对开发团队与基金会的通证持比及销毁问题,我们的回复如下:

  1. 两个核心开发团队的通证分别是分四年和两年线性释放,符合业内通行做法,且这两部分通证跟两个团队的传统投资人利益相关,不可能随意销毁;
  2. 基金会持有15%也符合业内常规的通行做法,这部份通证将作为基金会的储备用于支持项目长期发展和应付意外情况;基金会承诺这部份通证1年内不会进入流通并会视情况逐年延长该承诺,未来不排除对这部份通证做部分销毁处理。

欢迎社区对IRISnet项目保持关注和监督,并为项目的生态发展持续提出宝贵的意见和建议。

楼上思路很正,奖励社区质押的人是对的,可以促进网络质押率

翻译一下楼上的回复,给中文社区外的朋友参考:
Thank you for your suggestions! IRIS foundation noticed the discussion on how the token should be burned and considered the method of burning a large proportion of IRIS tokens is over simplified and not conducive to the long-term development of IRISnet. But IRIS foundation is willing to to optimize the utilization of eco-development funds.

The eco-development fund, which comprised 30% of the initial supply when IRIS Hub was launched, now accounts for 26.67% of the total supply. Here are the fund’s usage over the past year:

  • Delegation: Delegated to some excellent validators to participate in the network security by maintaining a reasonable level of staking ratio (this part accounts for the largest portion)
  • Grants: Rewarded technical advisors, developers, and community activists who made contribution to the project
  • Airdrop: Gave away to community members in campaigns organized by the IRIS foundation or some institutional partners
  • Burn: All rewards from delegation and part of the fund principal are burned regularly to ensure that actual inflation is zero

To encourage the community to participate in delegation and thus increase the voluntary staking ratio, we will roll out a delegation promotion plan which adds two new applications of the eco-dev fund:

  • To reward delegators directly;
  • To reward validators who meet certain criteria.

As the community’s voluntary staking ratio continues to increase, the eco-development fund will gradually recall its delegations, and we are not ruling out the option of burning a portion of the recalled tokens. Depending on the actual development of the ecosystem, concrete measures will be taken, adjusted and announced whenever necessary.

As for the appeals to burn tokens allocated to the core dev teams and the IRIS foundation, here is our response:

  1. The releasing schedules of tokens allocated to Bianjie and Tendermint conform to our industry’s common practices. And the equity investors of these two teams have a vested interest in these tokens, so they cannot be burned at will;
  2. The IRIS foundation holding 15% as reserve also accords with common practices. These tokens are reserved to support long-term development of the project and to deal with unexpected situations. The IRIS foundation hereby commits that reserved tokens will not enter circulation for one year, and this commitment could be extended on a yearly basis depending on circumstances. In the future, we are not ruling out the option of burning a portion of these reserved tokens.

We are happy to see the community getting involved in governance discussions to promote the growth of the IRISnet project, and welcome your continued proffering of valuable opinions and suggestions for the healthy development of the IRISnet ecosystem.

This is a good news on each and everyone supporters of IRIS network.

and here is the translation of this topic from the proposer DA ZHANG

(Proposal on burning part of the IRISnet official holding tokens)

(Background)

The proportion of the official holding tokens is relatively high.

The original distribution is as follow

Private sale: 25%

Bianjie Team: 15% (four-year vesting period)

Tendermint team: 10% (two-year vesting period)

IRIS Foundation: 15% (Reserved to support operations of the Foundation)

ecosystem development: 30% (ecosystem development and other partner rewards)

Cosmos Hub Airdrop: 5%

Total official holding (dev team+foundation+ecosystem development): 70%

(Some possible adverse consequences)

Excessive official positions may cause or have caused the following problems:

1.Does not meet the listing rules of some mainstream exchanges (Exchanges as Binance, Coinbase, etc. have restrictions on official positions);

2.The main funds have no confidence in the long-term operation of IRIS because of concerns about official positions flowing into the secondary market.

3.The above are reasons for the relatively low marketcap of IRISnet.

As a basic public chain for business, a low marketcap is not conducive to promoting developer activity and development ecosystem, and may also have a negative impact on validators and security.

Another important goal of IRISnet is to develop Defi, but the Defi platform itself should have a certain scale of marketcap. Itself should be a high-quality asset in the market. For example, ETH is a positive case.

Overall, relatively low marketcap can lead to a vicious circle in the long term.

(The Proposal of Burn)

Propose IRISnet burn 50% tokens of the official holding part. The details can be determined by the development team and the foundation.

Welcome the community to discuss.

所谓的奖励翻倍,项目方敢不敢把自己抵押的5.2亿的币全部或者一半退出,让节点回归相对去中心化,降低年化通胀都要归零了还要逆市通胀不是在自寻死路吗
