I’m facing an issue that I’ve noticed in the space, where it is quite difficult, and even impossible, to differentiate the project’s community from the general population.
Some might say that this is the point, that it should be free for everybody. But to me the real point is that it should be free for everybody to join. It would not be very scientific to let “just anybody” have the same influence as a committed member (whether through their vote OR through their capital), but that is for later.
What I propose is much more meager. Setting a bar to entry for a discussion and announcement platform (like the lounge), and set the bar very clearly and very low.
This will give everybody a platform to communicate with a group that has somehow shown its commitment to the project (and revealing it to the general public only by extension). I would like to think this will reduce the noise and elevate the level discussion, while offering some protection from malicious outsiders.
We don’t exclude anyone, we become exclusive, and we stabilize and protect the system.
So what do you think about having an “Inner Circle”? And what should be the entry fee?
