I think Lucas' suggested changes make sense in light of concerns about regulator interpretation. Honestly, the shifts to accomodate this are unfortunately degrading the overall legibility of the ecosystem but i agree its still necessary.
I think the homepage text and structure is good. I would recommend extending the call to action to 3 items
#### Proposed copy for the call to action box:
JOIN THE DISCUSSOION <discord link>
Get acquainted with the other community and learn how to get involved.
CONTRIBUTE TIME <karma hustle link>
Get involved by browsing available tasks or suggest your own tasks.
DOWNLOAD CARPE <github link>
Earn coins on your desktop or notebook computer with the Carpe App.
### Open Source Everything
The 0L project is radically open source in that every aspect of the project is open to open to community contributors. The software that operates the network is not managed by a foundation or a by governance token. Instead, the community manages the technical infrastructure by developing software and making pull requests. Where decisions are not reducible to software, open source like workflows are used to define, complete and review diverse forms of labor.
### Hustle Karma
Many of the activities required to have a vibrant open source community can not be reduced to pull requests in a github repo. In order to ensure non-technical contributors have a place in 0L, the Hustle Karma <link> board provides community members the opportunity to define missions, sign up to complete missions, review completed missions and to get paid for doing so. There is work available for community managers, project managers, designers, communications experts and more.
### Polycentric Programs
There is a special class of account in 0L called a community wallet. They can be automatically donated to and have the special properties intended for funding public goods. There are currently 12 community wallets <link to the summary> with published goals, controlled by different organizations. These programs are actively funding the missions in the Hustle Karma board. Anyone can create a community wallet, and advocate for donations to steer community funds. The voluntary donations to the polycentric programs are how the community expresses its prefernces for how goals are prioritized and resources are allocated.
### Labor Focused Economy
Most blockchain networks allocate most of their rewards to node operators serving as 'security guards' but fail to invest directly in the development, operations and maintaince of the application layer. In order to fund labor, capital is routed to community wallets managed by independent organizations and used to fund technical and non-technical missions within the 0L ecosystem via karma hustle <link> board. Missions are funded by community wallets recieving currently receiving 50% of all validator rewards <could we get a link for this> via autopay. This is an experiment in shifting the networks economic flows to reward humans actively contributing where other networks rewards accumate to comparatively passive infrastructure operators.
### Indentity Subsidy
Another experimental economic concept in 0L is an identity subsidy offered to accounts which solve proofs of elapsed time using the Carpe App <link>. The stack of proofs is called a tower, by building a tall tower you can demonstrate that your account is a persistant identity. Persistant identities help defend againt sybil attacks because building a longstanding history and even a reputation is possible while remaining psuedononmous. Additionally, accounts which submit proofs share in a pool of rewards. This mechanism ensures early adopters get access to gas so that they build, test and use the applications being developed on the 0L blockchain.
### Thermostatic Security
The 0L network is a fork of network optimized for 100 validators. As such, the 0L network prefers to have about 100 validators. Validator rewards decrease as the number of validators rises, and at 100 validators rewards reach a floor. In expection there will be 100 validators serving the network and their rewards will come primarily from gas paid for transactions on the network. At genesis, in order to a flood of validator farms, an address must be oboarded to the validator set by a validator, and each validator can only onboard a new account once per two weeks. The number of candidate validators grows by a power of two every fortnight, at steady, it is expected anyone wishing to operate a node will easily find a peer to sign them in.
