Sudden spike of Dash-to-U.S.Dollar prices, put many new proposals out of reach for small projects.
With regard to the recent maximum USD price of Dash at $120, We think the proposal fee should be reduced to 0.1 Dash.
Without this change, We feel that opportunities will be missed.
This is because a high proposal cost will discourage submitting of anything but "guaranteed" proposals.
The 5 Dash fee was introduced primarily to prevent spam.
This was successful when this fee was only about $15.
We see no reason why a smaller fee of about $5 will not successfully discourage spam.
There was a question about pricing Dash proposals in USD;
Sadly this is technically impossible, because the Dash network (our block-chain)
knows nothing about the price of U.S. Dollar, nor about the price of gold.
Therefore 0.1 DASH (Dash = $50) will mean that a single proposal will cost only $5 at this price, and even in a case of sudden spike to a $1000 for Dash, our proposals will still be priced reasonably at $100-a-pop.
Q: > What is the purpose of the proposal fee?
To avoid spam.
Q: > How do you measure if the fee is too high?
Our budget is not filled with proposals. We have fewer proposals than available budget.
Q: > Is there currently evidence that it is too high?
Many small-academic projects are already priced out of the market.
And we have zero spam. Good idea is to decrease fees.
We want competition for budget money -- that is more proposals for ideas and start-ups than available budget. This will give maximum growth for the Dash network.
What if a Dash spikes to a $1000 and new proposal will cost $5000 ? Only big and rich corporations will be able to propose new stuff or new policies or new start-ups on our network.
