Spot on! The intent was indeed giving the artist capability to choose their ownership to be lifetime. (Please do take note as prior, the numbers are not fixed parameters, it will always be a result of a discussion) But with lifetime ownership, the concept became complicated and questions appeared, such as :
If the artist owns a lifetime ownership, for example, the next sale happens 20 years later than what’s the point of having fractional ownership if the artist can’t enjoy it in their lifetime? That’s why the current blockchain developer I’m in communication with introduced a concept called Harberger Tax. Then the proposal continued to develop from there. Can’t fully disclosed all that have transpired without his permission, but as I mentioned this proposal has been properly dissected by him
Then there’s the issue of how will the technology handle successive sales and resale? Soo many great questions and ideas have been fleshed out. The revised proposal that he had in mind I genuinely believe will be something exciting and makes sense for the Cardano blockchain community
Falling back to my initial pitch, “market-driven, government branch supported and initiated by key players” would be where I could most contribute. For as I mentioned I am 100% open to any form of background check of my statement and people involved. Interest on my side is genuinely there, I would only a need a dedicated and like-minded person to materialize this.
I will not pretend to technologically fully understand your conversation regarding nodes and it’s caveats, but I can relate perhaps on a more general scale and based on as-is information provided on the net and if I recall correctly by IOHK. To my understanding, Cardano nodes are based on a system that prevents centralization. It limits the benefits of a node, therefore preventing the creation of a super node. With that concept in mind, came my idea of creating a node from the art platform in my proposal. Pardon though for I cannot share the details regarding this. Regarding your insight of Cardano limiting their nodes at 1000 is something new, which I thank you and will do further studies.
I personally believe the people of and behind Cardano will not prioritize short term results but perhaps there should be a healthy mix between short-term results and long-term goals but must always be legal and ethical. If you haven’t followed Charles Hoskinson YouTube channel, please do for there are many interesting updates to come.
Thank you though for sharing the info regarding your developer colleagues and your continuous input. Many success to you and may Cardano truly become what it intends to be.
