    Hi all,

    My main interest in the Decred currency is the governance system. I think we have some interesting points now to debate (the Constitution, blockchain governance, etc.) but I don't see the apropiate place to talk about in this forum. Maybe we can create a section about "Gobernance" to start the debate? I think I have some valid points de say. Or maybe I missed the place? :D

    This seems like a reasonable suggestion to me. What you do think @_ingsoc?

    I agree.

    I also have some questions about this matter, as what does that mean?

    "Decred shall comply with all relevant bodies of law in the jurisdictions where applicable, such as embargoes and other trade sanctions."


    Will negotiations with decred be disabled in countries that usa government solve embargo or attack?

    Whatever I want.
    I think that is for exchanges and individuals to concern themselves with. I think the statement Dash makes on the subject is basically "This software/system is not intended for illegal use, but we can't really control what people do with it."

    Censorship is always a last resort. As per the Decred Constitution:
    However, openness at the start of a journey can lead to either a constructive environment for discourse or a chaotic environment of toxicity. I would admit the project was naive to think a completely open policy would not result in a problematic environment. There have been a number of instances where individuals in the project have been targeted and harassed (already). It became clear this was not acceptable.

    A top priority is always going to be development, and if others attempt to disrupt that effort through personal attacks, threats, or any kind of uncivil behaviour that causes distress, steps need to be taken to restore order so that a constructive environment can continue to exist. As such, rules were introduced as guidelines to govern our spaces. Censorship in the sense of the word will only ever exist when completely unreasonable behaviour becomes disruptive.

    Dissent will always be fine and accepted in the project - so long as the dissent is constructive in that it accompanies proposed solutions and ways to arrive at those solutions.
