I’m creating this topic for discussions about Enigma’s recent launch of a distributed network using the Cosmos SDK. It’s a new beginning for this community, and we’re looking forward to building more interoperable privacy solutions for the whole blockchain ecosystem.
One of the most significant changes that was made is the addition of on-chain governance to the protocol. Validators are considering proposals now, and we hope to support meaningful discussions here on the dev forum. If you have any ideas or questions, reply to this message or start a new topic in the Secret Network category.
Here is a place where you can ask questions, voice your opinions, and influence the direction of the live network. Our team hopes to submit a governance proposal for integrating secret contract functionality in the coming months. This proposal would be voted on for inclusion by validators in the Enigma network.
Currently, there are 20 validators, selected based on their successful support of the Discovery testnet. More will be necessary to achieve greater decentralization. To this end, we have been exploring frameworks that enable decentralized autonomous organizations built on Ethereum. Recently, our team launched a “DAO” as an experiment at ETHDenver. Although it is not part of Enigma’s on-chain protocol governance, Secret DAO allows members to conduct reputation-weighted votes on proposals. Eventually, there might be funds allocated to specific projects through a combination of social and technical decision-making processes.
For now, share thoughts here on the dev forum. This open-source platform is best for coordinating stakeholders and other participants. We have some interesting decisions to make together. Our community invites anyone to help with development and ongoing research. All positive contributions are much appreciated!
