Community discussion will occur in the #trustee-community channel on Discord .


Iā€™ve submitted 20%APR/60days lockup policy (~3.28% rate) because 15% APR is not interesting for current holders, nobody staked in the last cycle. Since we are in experimental phase, I think we can implement even higher APR to reward holders and collect more data.

As in the previous cycles, I am in favour of us continuing to experiment in monetary policy.

For the same reasons @MikeWeb stated above, I will support the highest APR proposal once again this time (20.3% was the highest proposed this cycle), followed by the other proposals in descending order.

I view ECO akin to a High-Yield emerging market credit. Currently that yield is 9-10 percent (or about a 5-6 percentage risk premium to US Treasuries. Using that benchmark, I am proposing a 10 percent yield for this monetary policy cycle. Thank you Pete Dattels
