The idea of a ballot is being explored but mostly for convenience. I think that the current cadence of voting is healthy speed is always a factor. I would hate to have a project come to Bancor, try to get whitelisted, just to wait a month to find they’ve been rejected or their proposal failed quorum. That may hurt Bancor’s reputation.
Interesting idea. I wonder how difficult it would be to get BNT added to their platform. I feel confident that voting rewards would need to be paid in BNT.
This is the perfect summary of my thoughts. If a proposal makes quorum but fails, this is a rejection of those ideas and it can lead to more discussion. In the case of a whitelisting, a quorum of Against means “We think this token is not good for Bancor (right now, ever, without changes)”. If a whitelist fails but doesn’t make quorum, does this mean that there is a lack of interest? Could more interest be drummed up? Is it an outright rejection on security grounds? Do you just try again harder (as in the case of DIP)? Consistent quorums are more useful to everyone.
