The more I think about distribution and decentralization the more I end up coming back to governance, polling, ownership - where fairness is a big concern.
In regards to “fair” voting, here are two novel approaches that are already being used to good effect:
- Quadratic Voting where everyone gets an equal amount of voice credits every set period to use on all kinds of votes (up and down). [some ethereum-based implementations]
- Believability-based Voting where a council votes on its own members when making decisions and over time learns who “gets it right” and in what fields.
