🏛Week 1: Why Governance Matters  

 

We’re trying something new these next 12 weeks, and we hope it becomes a standard more projects will adopt. 

Since the e-cash days, open peer review has been at the heart of how protocols develop. In the same vein, Storecoin’s Chris McCoy has launched a Governance Peer Review & Working Group initiative where readers can read about specific areas of governance each week and openly discuss approaches to different governance models. 

The first part to this 12-week series is a reading on why governance matters in the first place. If you’re interested in helping the team with their “build-in-public” initiative, you can also join the Peer Review program here.   


 

  

THING TO KNOW


Schelling Point

A point people converge on without formal communication because it seems natural or relevant. Economist Thomas Schelling illustrated this point by asking a group of students where they would meet a stranger in NYC. The most common answer, or "natural" point, was Grand Central Station at noon - for no specific reason.

The inherent challenge is: how do you get parties to converge on these choices without communicating? One example of Schelling point in Bitcoin is its fixed supply. Bitcoin is a social phenomenon - its 21M hard cap is a Schelling Point enforced by social consensus, not by code.
