The idea is a lottery that runs autonomously using the spirit of satoshi nakamoto.
We create a DAO lottery that uses “Sitoshi’s Ghost” SG, to determine the winners. Users guess the time SG will reveal itself and payouts are paid according to the closest guess, If you get it 100% correct you win the pool (less the portion that goes to charity), if you are the closest but not 100% correct a deduction is made based on how far out you were from the time and that is carried over to the next reveal.
Sitoshi’s Ghost reveals itself at random intervals, these can have tiered weights based on the intervals they occur:-
Hourly There is an SG reveal once every hour
Daily (one of the hourly reveals is a special reveal that counts as the daily reveal)
Weekly (one of the daily reveals is a special reveal that counts as the weekly reveal)
Monthly (one of the weekly reveals is a special reveal that counts as the monthly reveal)
Annually (one of the monthly reveals is a special reveal that counts as the annual reveal)
A percentage of the shorter interval payouts is carried over to the next tier.
Also there could be super reveal that occurs if the real satoshi nakamoto reveals himself by sending some proof (not sure if this is possible) but if it is he could do this while he is living or posthumously using a time contract and nominate a cause of his choosing for the charity payout.
Using something like Bitvote users can nominate charities, other DAO’s or projects they they wish the pool funds to support.
Even the percentage of the splits between payout and donation could be voted on
This is just a rough Idea and I’m sure with input from others it can be developed into both a fun and useful tool to support issues the community feel are important.
This will also hopefully bring great publicity to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitvote and any other technology it incorporates. The problem with democracy is unless it has financial support it is very difficult to implement. Something like SG can do both with the incentive of reward for contributing. Unlike Tax that is implemented through cohesion, this is a purely voluntary self emerging ecosystem that can be run autonomously implementing value through values.
The way the times are chosen can be based on a algorithm that takes all the votes of the various proposed links in Bitvote and converts them into a time. In 2010 I made something similar to convert personalised information into lottery numbers http://www.lottoluck.net/
The same concept could be used to randomly generate the times SG will appear.
