Notice on the establishment of the DeepBrain Chain Council

As DBC has already launched on the mainnet and has been running stably, the foundation will take the decentralized on-chain governance, based on Polkadot Governance module, as its next priority. After in-depth discussion, the foundation decide to establish DBC council, which will run separately from the foundation and aim to improve DBC's development. The foundation will focus more on technology, product development and brand image management and maintenance. As the decision-making body of DAO community autonomy, the Deep Brain Chain Council will be responsible for proposal examination and approval, fund management, etc. At the same time, it will make suggestions for ecological development and practice the concept of community autonomy.

DBC council is an on-chain entity consisting of 13 members. All theses members are elected by voting. This governance system will run for test within 2021. During the test period, the council will be elected every 14 days, and since 2022 it will be elected every 2 months,increasing to 21 members . According to polkadot governance system, the council can decide the priority of the proposals, and has access to the Treasury.

Accourding to DBC whitepaper, the foundation will unlock 1.5 billion DBCs within 6 years.

However, for better decentralized on-chain governance, DBC foundation decide to extend the period to 15 years, which means unlocking 100 million per year. Since 2022, each year the 51% of the 100 million will be monthly distributed to DBC Treasury, enacted by intelligent contract. If the DBCs in Treasury of the current year are not used up, they will be automatically burning. The remaining 49% will be used as the operating expenses of the foundation. The foundation will make financial disclosure and release financial reports regularly every quarter.

The funds in DBC Treasury is managed by council. All members of the DBC community can submit a proposal and apply for Treasury funds. If the proposal is approved by the council, the budget will be automatically allocated from the Treasury.

Proposals may consist of (but are not limited to):

  • Infrastructure deployment and continued operation.
  • Network security operations (monitoring services, continuous auditing).
  • Ecosystem provisions (collaborations with friendly chains).
  • Marketing activities (advertising, paid features, collaborations).
  • Community events and outreach (meetups, pizza parties, hackerspaces).
  • Software development (wallets and wallet integration, clients and client upgrades).
