MATT: You know what comes to mind? Anonymity in voting. A feature of voting that I forget is that it’s validated through registration. But it’s anonymous at the point of power.
DAN: Yeah, Liquid is anonymous voting.
MATT: And anonymous delegation?
DAN: Mostly anonymous delegation. No one else can see who you delegate to.
MATT: That’s how it should be. So to be delegated to… means removing anonymity?
DAN: Before someone can delegate to you, you must approve. If you do, since you now represent them, they can see all your votes.
MATT: And your voting history?
DAN: Yes. Only votes while you approve. You can end that anytime.
DAN: Either side can stop the delegation without the other finding out.
MATT: Makes sense.
DAN: And for all the votes you inherit from your rep… you don’t know whether they voted directly or got their vote from their own rep.
MATT: Hah I really like this.
DAN: You only need a little bit of content and it can drive a very large community. Each vote spreads virally.
MATT: Yeah. At scale. I’m having my mind blown a little bit though.
