The Future of Voting
influence.vote is an open source decentralised decision making tool. Using Quadratic Voting and NFTs as a voter ID system this dApp aims to generate discourse and explore new methodologies for social coordination and consensus formation.
Part of the finance.vote dApp suite, influence.vote is being built to facilitate decentralised governance processes, in particular in DeFi but with many future applications
The Governance dApp Suite
These dApps will be the toolset for the DAOs of the future. They are designed to facilitate social consensus formation across a range of use cases, from price discovery and monetary policy formation to content curation and governance.
These applications will form the foundation of a decentralised decision making and will upgrade the governance capabilities of the whole DeFi space as a whole. Together they form a modular DAO architecture that projects will be able to integrate to their needs and modify in collaboration with the finance.vote token holders.
COMING APRIL 2021
Influence.vote is the lead application of our “second layer governance” suite that is designed to allow distributed groups of people to reach consensus on the internet.
It uses quadratic voting to promote the curation of ideas, through voting on semantic tags and dialogue capture.
COMING Q3 2021
Decision.vote is where important final decisions are made in a hyper secure, high-stakes environment.
This is where rough consensus becomes real, and quadratic voting becomes binary decision making.
Coming Q3 2021
Proposal.vote extends beyond rough consensus to promote the generation of crowd created proposals of work.
Here people will decide what is important, what should be worked on and what should be funded.
COMING Q4 2021
AMA.vote is an “ask me anything” platform. It uses quadratic voting to sort a list of crowd curated questions, filtering and rewarding the best.
This platform allows individuals, or teams, to have conversations with thousands of people.
