But we hope to build out a variety of different methods for analyzing signals.\n\nBurner Vote operates under the premise that any arbitrary definition of stakeholder groups will necessarily disenfranchise some people. Rather than attempting to define stakeholder groups and weight their input against one and other, Burner Vote attempts to create a signaling environment that is permissionless, non-exclusive, collusion resistant, and minimally impacted by plutocracy.\n\nCurrently, all ether collected from signaling is burned so as to prevent feedback. However, future iterations may seek to reallocate collected funds via some trustless fund allocation mechanism.\n\n-----\n\nBurner Vote was started as an ETHNewYork hack and is intended as a public good for the Ethereum ecosystem. It deliberately has no revenue model and, as such, it will depend entirely on grant funding.\nFunding from this grant will help push us to a production MVP and beyond.\n"}]}
