Genesis protocol is our implementation of holographic consensus as a smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain.
Here is an explanation of the protocol's parameters, which you can find in the "Information" tab of any plugin that uses the protocol.
The Ethereum address where these parameters are stored (not where the protocol itself is).
The date and time (represented in Unix time) when proposals in this plugin can first be submitted.
Example: 12:00 PM UTC on July 14th, 2019 (active)
Boosted Vote Period Limit
The length of time boosted proposals are open for voting.
Example: 7 days (604800 seconds)
DAO Bounty Constant
This is multiplied by the average downstake on boosted proposals to calculate how large the DAO’s automatic downstake should be.
Proposal Reputation Reward
The amount of voting power given out as a reward for submitting a proposal that the DAO passes.
Example: 500 REP
Minimum DAO Bounty
The minimum amount of GEN a DAO will stake when automatically downstaking each proposal.
Example: 250 GEN
Pre-Boosted Vote Period Limit
The length of time that a proposal must maintain a confidence score (upstake divided by downstake) higher than the boosting threshold to become eligible for boosting.
Example: 1 day (86400 seconds)
Queued Vote Period Limit
The amount of time non-boosted proposals (pre-boosted or regular queue) are open for voting.
Example: 45 days (3888000 seconds)
Queued Vote Required
The percentage of all Reputation (voting power) that must be voting yes or no for a non-boosted proposal for it to pass or fail.
Quiet Ending Period
The length of time a vote’s potential result needs to stay the same in order to be confirmed as the official result.
Example: 2 days (172800 seconds)
Controls how quickly the required confidence score for boosting goes up as the number of currently boosted proposals rises (threshold = threshold constant ^ number of currently boosted proposals).
Voters Reputation Loss
The percentage of a voter’s voting power they stand to lose if they vote against the DAO’s eventual decision on a non-boosted proposal. If you have 100 Reputation and this parameter is set to 4%, you stand to lose 4 Reputation.
