Contest period

Begins 19-10-2020 at 00:00:00 UTC - Ends 25-10-2020 at 23:59:59 UTC.

Motivation (DeFi SubGovernance proposal specification)

In the strive to decentralize Free TON, so should the jury come from the community at large. This will help achieve the goal of decentralized governance 2.0.

On the other hand, the complexity and immensity of the DeFi topic has led to the creation of a separate SubGovernance and requires the creation of a Jury from specialists in Decentralized Finance (DeFi)

Initial SubGovernance DeFi Free TON members are also the Initial DeFi Jury members. They are appointed to form the full Free TON DeFi jury. This initial composition assumes all responsibilities of the Free TON DeFi Jury and is to launch a Free TON DeFi Jury Contest.

The main duty of the full FreeTON DeFi Jury is to vote in the FTDCs (FreeTON DeFi Contests).

This contest continues a series of recurring Jury contests until reaching the KPI of at least 15 independent jurors (in addition to seven initial members).

Rights and duties of the winner as a member of the Free TON DeFi Jury

Winners will get the right to be a juror for each Free TON contest going forward and get the same reward as each contest describes for jurors. The award will be distributed in fair proportion to all jury members participating in the voting who have given a mark other than “Abstain”, based on the number of votes within a specific contest.

In order to get the jury reward described in each contest, the juror must do the following:

  1. Each juror should review each contest and its requirements here under “Contests”.
  2. The juror should review each contestant’s submission (uploaded in .PDF format) and determine if each submission is within the scope of his or her understanding to judge it, and then vote as follows:

a. If outside of juror competence, the juror should vote to “Abstain”
b. If within juror competence, the juror should vote on a scale of 1-to-10 with 1 representing least and 10 representing most qualified submissions.
c. If the submission is inappropriate, the PDF file is unopenable or corrupt, etc., the juror should vote “Reject” at all.

  1. The juror should provide constructive feedback in the appropriate field describing the reason for their score.

As any civic duty dictates, every juror must remain objective to the best of his/her abilities in regard to voting, i.e., stick to the facts and the facts only, leaving any personal feelings aside.

In case the juror, his/her relative, or a member of his/her team is participating in the contest, the juror must abstain from voting for this contest.

The jury should remember the strategy of creating DeFi tools on the Free TON blockchain when voting: create a basic infrastructure layer to facilitate the entrance of new partners to the FreeTON DeFi ecosystem, as well as the switch of current market leaders to FreeTON from Ethereum and other blockchains, which will boost the wide adoption of FreeTON.
