Hello world. As a stake pool tester of a pool named after John Locke (Lockepool) I was wondering why we cant just silence Daniel Larimers critisism (https://twitter.com/bytemaster7/status/1181323723653222406) once and for all by making some form of social contract that makes sure we are indeed not 3 persons running all of the staking pools on different accounts. (It seems Daniel forgets the social aspects of PoS).
What if we made a stake pool alliance with a yearly conference where we showed up in person and shared experiences as stake pool operators and at the same time verified we are indeed different persons, with different hardware and different locations. We could even share how to be more secure and better our service as staking pools. For example if it is good to use laptops with sim cards internet so we can be up even when power shuts down. With now highly advanced laptops running on 35+ watts and staking in Cardano having minimal cpu/ram/harddisk costs I am sure creativity will blossom in finding cool ways! (Satellite launched staking pools anyone?!?)
In any case Lockepool wants to contribute to social contracts and ideas of governance / community that helps evolve the Cardano ecosystem. Not to lead but to be among a great community.
Anyone think this is a good idea feel free to discuss! Perhaps this can be evolved into a better idea as well.
