EgonCoin Governance and Development

EgonCoin is already a significantly decentralized platform and plans are in motion to achieve full community control over it in the future. Its governance is currently split among the following actors:

1) Network Validators. EgonCoin validators are entrusted with deciding whether to adopt EgonCoin Elevated proposals (EEPs). Currently, every validator has one vote regardless of their share of the overall network stake but this is likely to change soon.

2) EgonCoin Foundation and the project team. Like most public blockchain projects at the initial stage of development, the development of the core network protocol and the EgonCoin treasury that mostly consists of the undistributed genesis EGON supply (see the subsection "EGC Supply and Current Distribution") are currently mostly managed by a foundation. For EgonCoin, this role is played by Belize-incorporated company Egon Technology Limited.

EgonCoin Foundation employs the EgonCoin project team whose members' profiles can be found here.

The project team implements network protocol updates adopted by the validators, other protocol changes that do not require validator votes, maintains the full node software. It develops the mobile-centric infrastructure for creating and managing token communities on EgonCoin. It also works on boosting the adoption of the network through improving the EgonCoin tech stack, securing new partnerships and integrations, on-boarding ecosystem projects and marketing the platform within the crypto space and beyond.

That said, since EgonCoin is a decentralized public blockchain platform, no permission of the project team is required for anyone who wishes to integrate with or develop on top of EgonCoin, including the development of the network and node software.

3) EgonCoin Assembly. See the Assembly page for more details.
