Firstly, congratulations, the final member proposals have now completed. We are at 200,000 PNT.
The next step involves starting a proposal to fund the PNT Node Pool Nimbus,
which can be found here:
PNT Node Pool Nimbus
This is essentially a smart contract that acts as a signer for the DAO. It enables us to perform transactions outside of the DAO via the internal consensus mechanism (voting).
Once we fund the Nimbus, we can then transfer the PNT to a mainnet Gnosis Safe.
There are two options when it comes to the Gnosis Safe:
- All members can be individual co-signers to the safe on mainnet.
This option would require people to be more active, since we would need to have a certain amount of signatures for each transaction (i.e. sending monthly rewards to the PNT Node Pool). And there would be no voting weight, or proportional power with the Gnosis Safe, just 1 vote per member
- Wait for a custom cross-chain solution that is currently being built, soon to be ready, which will enable the PNT Node Pool on xDai to control a Gnosis Safe on mainnet.
This option maintains proportional voting power over the safe, and will not require a minimum amount of signatures.
The first option we can do immediately. The second option we will have to wait for, but I was informed that it is almost ready. (Full disclosure: it was suppose to be ready by now, but there were some issues that needed to be resolved - A solution has now been found and it should be ready shortly).
After we transfer the PNT to the Gnosis Safe, we can then simply stake the PNT in the pNetwork DAO, spin up the Node and connect to the network.
It is important to note that members can also delegate their voting power to a trusted party (i.e. Peerion) if they do not wish to participate in voting. The delegation option can be found in your Profile > 3 dots > Add Delegate Key > enter the address you would like to delegate your power to.
Please share feedback so that we can start an official proposal and get everything in motion. And since it will take 4 days for the funding proposal to pass and 4 days for the transfer to mainnet to pass, we will not make the next epoch in pNetwork DAO, which means we have 2 weeks still to decide before needing to take action.
