(this is the expanded version of a comment I posted in another thread):
The discord is going crazy right now: should new Looters (8000+) receive AGLD or not? And it’s already clear that no matter how we move forward, someone’s gonna be very angry… It is therefore important to take a step back and think about what lootproject wants to achieve - and make the best decision that helps further this goal. Well, we can obviously also argue about lootproject’s goal, but to be able to make an argument, I’m posting my vision here:
lootproject can become the first metaverse app for the masses, allowing everyone to create an avatar and enjoying a massive ecosystem of games, stories, social interactions, and economic interactions, all set in the expanded loot universe.
Having this goal in mind, it’s clear that derivatives have to always guarantee accessibility and equality so that potentially every human being on this planet can easily become a looter and have fun with everyone else on Ethereum.
That means: dhof’s newest move (loot 8000+) is exactly the right move (given the goal above); and now it’s the derivatives’ turn to follow suit, meaning, every new looter should also receive a 10k AGLD airdrop. This is the only way we can guarantee that every looter will have the same fighting chance in the ecosystem.
Obviously, this would be a big blow to the guys who are buying AGLD at high prices, but speculators who want to turn the lootproject into a cryptopunk-like collectible for the rich are the people we should NOT be considerate of; at least NOT if you share my vision of lootproject as outlined above.
What do you guys think?
One problem I see with my suggestion: people could start farming AGLD by minting new Loot. Could we somehow prevent this from happening?
Ideas posted below:
smaller fixed drop to mLoot holders
AGLD fork: 50% drop to Loot holders, 50% drop to mLoot holders (problem: mLoot is inflationary, so you can’t have a fixed supply as new mLoot will be minted forever)
decreasing drop to mLoot holders (“mLoot minted earlier might be entitled to more AGLD airdrops while mLoot minted later will get very little”)
