As previously stated, the primary focus of the Algorand Foundation Economic Advisory Committee (EAC) is to govern, manage and adjust economic guidelines in support of the long-term viability, security and fairness of the Algorand network and ecosystem. As this ecosystem evolves, we expect and welcome the active engagement of our global and decentralized community of supporters. Harnessing the power of our collective ideas and innovations is a critical requirement for the development of an enduring and robust borderless economy.
It is in that spirit that we want to transparently communicate our approach related to the ongoing submission and review of ideas and proposals from the community to the Algorand Foundation EAC. To that end, the proposal submission guidelines are as follows:
Over time we may evolve and update these guidelines as we collect feedback from the broad Algorand community. Thank you all for your ongoing support of Algorand.
*In some situations where an EIP predominantly affects a specific subset of the community, the foundation will reach out to the specifically affected subset for review and vote.
