David Fuelling, an XRP Ledger developer, published a proposal to update the governance structure of the XRP Ledger Foundation. This is a significant development since Fuelling calls for the governance to be decentralized and member-driven.
Ripple CTO David Schwartz acknowledged Fuelling’s proposal. Schwartz noted that the proposal is a “straw man,” and is designed to open dialogue in the XRPL community. It offers an opportunity for developers to collaborate and refine the governance of the Ledger and make it more transparent and democratic, in line with the community’s input, he said.
The developer proposes that there is increased representation of stakeholders in the XRPLedger community and they are able to formally influence the affairs of the foundation. A more formalized membership could help facilitate the same and increase the participation of stakeholders. Higher contribution in the form of time, money and resources could help further XRPLedger foundation’s success.
