1) Who should vote?
We believe the legitimate voters should be players who have ethers in their wallets.
2) So we are going to count heads?
No. We are going to count coins, in this case, ethers. How many ethers you have, how many votes you have.
3) How to vote?
Simply, send a 0-ETH transaction from your wallet to the YES or NO address. The transaction itself serves as a message of the vote. The ethers under the from address of the transaction will be considered a unanimous batch of ballots that support or oppose the proposal of a hard fork.
Your ethers are safe in your wallets. We won’t collect or lock money.
4) How’s the vote counted?
Carbonvote.com dynamically calculates the ETH that has gone to the two sides as the vote is going on.
So you can change your mind, you can overwrite your vote by resending your message or move the ETH from the addresses that have participated so as to suggest that you are abstaining from the vote as the ETH won’t be able to be counted as votes anymore.
Carbonvote.com was initiated during the DAO hard fork and conducted vote in a secure web-page fashion with the feature that the voting conducted did not require coins to leave voters’ wallets. It had been a great source of reference when the community decided to go with the fork. Our thanks to all that participated in the last and our first round of the vote in DAO hard fork.
Once again, Carbonvote.com is a community initiated project devdicated to be an important source of reference in a quantitate way, to offer suggestions to the directions of Ethereum for developers and the Ethereum Foundation. We are open to feedbacks to improve in order to better serve the purpose.
