TLDR; We should have a mechanism to reward users who actively participate in Tornado Cash governance
- reward TORN addresses that Vote (yes or no) on past proposals with TORN
- reward addresses that lock TORN in the governance contract with a small amount of TORN accumulated per block
The goal would be to encourage people to vote even during periods of high gas prices.
The way things currently are, TORN holders are only voting “yes” if the strongly believe in the proposal, or not voting at all.
It is important that people still pay gas to vote “NO” on proposals they don’t want for several reasons. It gives the community better signal on sentiment around proposed changes, and it prevents unhealthy changes from being passed by a handful of whales (the top 8 community wallets currently sum >25k TORN).
