Thanks for the detailed reply @spizzerb I will try and break up the chunks, let me know if I miss something.
Thanks for the detailed answer Dave.
It raises some additional questions though
- Who made this decision?
There are two decisions - Pre and Post, I’m not sure which you mean so will answer both
- PreLaunch, by a combination of the Dev Teams, Core Devs and NGL exec based on the size that is possible in the Genesis/Nemesis block, this one has been made
- Post Launch, HAS NOT YET BEEN MADE and is being discussed in various places including this thread as per my comment above in this thread, copied below for ease of reference
the post launch opt in process will be confirmed in the next few weeks. The 100 XEM limit per the terms an conditions will apply to any account pre-launch, it may also apply to the post launch. I have forwarded this specific use case to the team to consider
- To the decision maker: What if we lose a part of our community if we exclude them?
This is a consideration and why we are watching these threads and conversations.
- To the decision maker: How many of the 114k accounts did you expect will optin?
This is impossible to know, and impossible to know if more will be created pre-snapshot and opt in (for example a spam scenario).
There is a natural follow on question - who should make this decision and how. My preference for example if 100XEM, Rene’s is around 10XEM I think) others are at 0 XEM. This decision isn’t mine or NGL’s to take and is the subject of a discussion. I have no issue for example having this conversaton run and then having a vote on it but what should be the question, what should be the answer options? (0, 10, 50, 100 etc they are all personal preferences).
My personal take is it should be somewhere above 0, it was set at 100xem for pre-launch due to numbers involved and space in the block based on estimates, that has been assumed as the start point post launch but is not decided/set in stone and we have some time to decide this (community not NGL)
I will add a seperate reply shortly for the specific questions to try and avoid a wall of text
