The Counterparty Foundation is a group dedicated to advancing the Counterparty protocol and its products, educating the community on the Counterparty technology, driving global Counterparty awareness, and ensuring Counterparty remains a successful and growing platform.
The Foundation is governed by five Community Directors.
Today, we’re happy to announce the start of the Counterparty Foundation Community Directors 2019 election.
For the next three weeks, from June 10th till July 1st, we are inviting everyone to participate in the election process by nominating candidates to fill five Community Director seats. The only requirement for the nomination is that the candidate hold at least 50 XCP and prove this by broadcasting a message from his or her address with the name of the nominee.
This will be the official election thread used to gather the names and addresses of qualifying candidates.
If you would like to nominate yourself or another candidate, please reply to this thread with the following candidate information:
- First and Last name
- Bitcoin address (must have at least 50 XCP)
- Tx of the broadcast used to verify the ownership of 50 XCP
On July 1st, Names and addresses of all candidates will be published and a 2-week long voting period will begin. During this voting period a Foundation Election Q&A thread will posted where community members can ask questions of the candidates to help them better understand the candidates position on certain issues, and their plans for how to best move Counterparty forward.
After the two week long voting period, at the voting closing block, the top five addresses that receive the highest number of votes will be announced as winners, and their owners receive Community Director positions for the term of one year.
We’re looking forward to your candidacy and hope this election will be a fair, successful and transparent process of selecting the best candidates to fill these key positions.
