Suggest mechanics on the forum

Help create a strong knowledge graph and protocol economy, by proposing protocol mechanics on the Golden forum. Successful proposals or detailed intellectual contributions may earn testnet points rewards.
We are especially interested in mechanics proposals on anti-gaming, IP ownership, long-term incentivization, or other core functionality. See How to get involved for more specific open tasks to solve.
