Hey all! New here… Do I understand correctly that when your POI is challenged and you lose, then you not only lose your stake but also the POI as one of your cartographer assets? Seems a total anarchy, where poachers take all. I understand that POI’s must be meticulous to serve their best purpose but as cartographers investing time curating, which is worth way more than the current value of tokens and executed in dedication for only hope of future value, does a challenger really not only get to take all your tokens but claim to the POI as well?
I hope I understand that incorrectly, because it would seem then that behavior would be cultivated to land the POI’s in hands of those not local to the area and without familiarity of the local opportunity or vested nature in it. What is worse? A few typos that can easily be edited or landing a POI in the hands of non-locals who will never turn back with intent to create synergy in their communities.
Once again new here, but it would make sense to first have a 24 hour hour window where a curator can give a final glancing review of what they’ve painstakingly submitted. Then progressing into challenging stage if an error were deemed true then it would seem fair that the challenger could take the stake or percentage of, based on gravity, but would also seem fair to permit a subsequent window of time where the original local cartographer could re-post the minimum required stake to maintain ownership of the POI asset, and would only pass to the challenger if no further claim is made.
I may be missing a huge picture though, I realize, lol. Especially thinking of POI’s too much as assets because then we get into a world where they can be traded and we’d need a whole new auction market for something like that.
Anyway, again, and again… new here… but exciting stuff. I believe I see the vision of Foam and all it’s opportunity but there are a lot of other variables that could muck things up with tricky governance issues.
Wouldn’t be writing, if I didn’t think the project was fantastic!
