🇺🇸4th DeFiChain Improvement Proposal: Reduce masternode collateral to 20,000 DFI?
Currently, the collateral required to run a masternode is 1,000,000 DFI.
With the steady increase in price of DFI — now at $2 — it is becoming more and more costly to set up a DFI masternode, in terms of arranging collateral and the creation fee (100 DFI).
In an effort to further improve decentralization, we propose that the collateral be reduced to 20,000 DFI.
Also, the masternode creation fee will be reduced from 100 DFI to 10 DFI.
Upon approval, this proposal will be implemented as soon as possible.
Important Information regarding the proposal
With the DeFiChain Foundation running no masternodes themselves, the outcome of this proposal is entirely in the hands of the community.
We do hope, however, that you accept this proposal in order to further improve decentralization of the DeFi Blockchain.
Voting for DFIP 4 will commence today, on 7January 2021 at 20:00 SGT, and end on 11 January 2021, at 20:00 SGT.
