As to the written policy on vote buying and governance, it can be summarised in two paragraphs:
Having said that, we are not advocates for heavy regulation of business practices around EOS. In our view, young distributed systems must find a natural market equilibrium. Stark regulation, arbitration and other penalizing measures open up a can of worms, in which authority has to be imposed externally, and might result in forking of chains, endless disputes, or even render the system unstable. We are libertarians at heart and believe that market forces always find a way to balance things out.
We have advocated the need for transparency of block producers operations quite early on. We see a BP’s role as a neutral supporter of the ecosystem. BP’s should never get involved in politics, taking sides, or running undisclosed business operations on the back of their BP income.
Our BP financing plan assumes, that in case of a vivid surplus of income from the BP node, we are going to redistribute a part of this back into the system, in form of development of dApps, developer education and boots-on-the-ground promotion of EOS.
The financing of the datacenters, as well as the money, flows stemming from the BP node are all going to be made public by Tokenika. Also note, that we are a business, and profit is one of our aims, so do not expect a Robin Hood type of approach – in order to serve the EOS community well, we need to remain self-sustainable.
Our block production infrastructure has been setup and fine-tuned by GTG, one of the best performing Steem witness nodes, consistently scoring in the top 3 for the least amount of dropped blocks.
All the above separates us from many inexperienced witness candidates who are forced to adopt a trial-and-error approach to this task, and might lack the skills or the infrastructure to set up and sustain a stable EOS node.
YOU MIGHT STILL HAVE SOME QUESTIONS.
