@dansup i'm wondering why you think it won't work.
Currently it's impractical. True. But the model can work fine to govern an opensource project fine, IMO.
Sure, you can run a FLOSS project with a BDFL, as an anarchy or even as a classic company. But in order to democratize it, one must give stakeholders votes. Which is only really possible with smart contacts. Just my thoughts, though.
