These are excellent questions. My support for the idea is based on a general familiarity with blockchains that employed staking (or planned to) from the outset. I do not know of any blockchain that had no initial plan to switch to staking then opted to at a later date. In particular, I have no knowledge of any blockchain that has done so when they are so close to heat death. If market research exists, I can't find it.There seems to be a lot of discussion around various staking strategies but I would like to see some data backing them up. Is there any market research to see what staking methods are the ones preferred by investors? Are there any crypto investors we can ask "what would it take for you to buy FCT?" and get some sort of idea of what would work and what wouldn't? Are there examples of protocols that changed to staking, how it impacted the token price, and how it turned out in the long run?
Nothing is happening behind the scenes. I don't know about the others, but I have been waiting for more ANOs to give their opinion on which of the available options, if any, would be acceptable.Are the 5 proposing ANOs evolving this behind the scenes? What’s the next step?
Thanks to all that have taken part so far. If others have been waiting to give their input, I encourage you to do so now. In particular, anything that helps us to refine the proposal into something we can actually vote on would be ideal.
