Do we have full transparency as to what they are currently paid?
If the individual who allegedly exploited Miso was paid $70/hr how much are the core team currently paid?
I think a conversation that we also need to have is to create an incentive structure that is linked to the token’s price.
But before doing all of this we also need a clear understanding as to each individual’s responsibilities and what they “Own.” Own as in the projects.
My point is that we need accountability and clarity as to what each member is doing so that we can make sure they are commensurately compensated.
I also think that we should have an ethics board. I’m sure people will have some issues with this but to achieve multi-billion dollar sustainable valuation we need the team to actually buy into a culture. Right now there seems to be culture clashes and different behaviors that may start to become detrimental to growth. But my biggest concern has to do with security and tactics. I have no idea how the Miso exploit was allowed to happen, but the concern I have is that there could be grounds for unethical behavior to promote a project at the expense of Sushi. I’m not accusing anyone in particular but it’s just an example at the top of my head because what happened with the latest exploit was absurd and did bring publicity to the strange “Dona” initiative. I say strange because I found it to be a very odd initiative and I’m not even a boomer lol
I don’t think being somewhat professional, holding people accountable and having full transparency is a bad thing, it’s a good thing and people should be fairly compensated. But if people want to be compensated they need to actually deliver value.
I also think we should consider compensating Maki and retaining him on an advisory basis, but compensated as an advisor not retroactively unless of course he comes back in a full-time leadership role, then we can talk about something more substantial. Though I don’t know what he was even paid in the past.
Point is that throwing money just to throw money is a losing proposition, let’s do it the right way and show the world what sushi is capable of.
