The Canonizer recognition shares used in this algorithm are openly tracked in the Master Canonizer Share Sheet
. For more information see Contribution Recognition.
The Canonizer Canonizer algorithm is used for canonizer community decision making, such as hiring new employees. It uses an "Inclusive Quadratic Shares
- Inclusive Quadratic Shares = sqrt(maximum(1, shares))
We want anyone to have at least one vote, even if they don’t have any of these recognition shares. People with more shares deserve more of a say, but only to a degree. We don’t want ‘whale’ share owners to control things. To this end, we take the square root of shares.
These shares are only seen as “recognition” for work done and there is no legally binding authority for any of this nor any quid-pro-quo. This system may change at any time.
