This document describes draft policies being considered by the Validator Commons. Some of the policies are intended for on-chain votes and others for internal debate by members of the Commons.

Define voting guidelines for validators

Ref. Prop. 75 (Mintscan) on Cosmos Hub (here’s a Twitter take) and Citadel One’s “constitution”.

Implement a constitution for Juno

In the wake of Juno Proposal 16, which passed in favor of seizing the assets of the “Juno Whale” without any legal basis, the Validator Commons is in favor of instituting a constitution to define and limit the power of the Juno government and institute a judicial committee with the power to limit the power of the Juno legislative body.

Fund the development of a governance assessment service

Self-assessments are good, but it would also be nice to have independent verification of what different validators are doing (and why they are doing it). This assessment could be based on the current validator self-assessment.

Validator Assessments

Publish and commit to a standard schema for validator participation

A standard JSON schema that validators can use to self-report their votes across multiple chains.
