Right now the approval process is too centralized. The beam foundation decides what can and can not be voted on. This can be changed to a fee in the form of beam to avoid spam and to make sure that the people that make a proposal are confident and serious about their proposal.
The height of the fee could be about 10, 20, 50, or 100 beam.
Not having to worry about approving would also free up time for the team to focus on other things.
The fee should be set by the person submitting the proposal. Then sort the proposals by those who pay most. People are smart enough know that higher fees does not equate to better proposals, only that the person seeks to be heard. The proposal itself would still have to stand on its own merits.
Having people compete may give the rich the upper hand.
It’s called the free market. You assume people are incapable of separating value from money. ff you and me are capable of doing so, why not anyone else? If a market is efficient it will of consumed all these possibilities. Not all markets are efficient, certainly not in the early stages, such as beam, but this is what we should be aiming for.
