NNT Catch Up

Neo co-founder, Da Hongfei, published an article on CoinTelegraph discussing why future governance processes should rooted in a philosophy of multi-party inclusion and the balance between decentralization and centralization. Da wrapped these concepts together, among others, into what he calls “elastic manageability.” These principles are found in N3’s governance process, accounting for business and enterprise needs, technical requirements for node operators, and local regulations – all factors that may affect voter choice. Through his elastic manageability philosophy, Da believes that incorporating the interests of all “opens up the path for sustainable and responsible growth both in the on- and off-chain world.”
