  • If the goal is for governance power to be widely distributed, then transferability is counterproductive as concentrated interests are more likely to buy the governance rights up from everyone else.
  • 如果目标是治理权力被广泛分配,那么可转移性就会适得其反,因为集中的利益更有可能从其他所有人手中购买治理权。
  • If the goal is for governance power to go to the competent, then transferability is counterproductive because nothing stops the governance rights from being bought up by the determined but incompetent.
  • 如果目标是将治理权力交给有能力的人,那么可转让性就会适得其反,因为没有任何东西可以阻止治理权被有决心但无能力的人收买。

If you take the proverb that “those who most want to rule people are those least suited to do it” seriously, then you should be suspicious of transferability, precisely because transferability makes governance power flow away from the meek who are most likely to provide valuable input to governance and toward the power-hungry who are most likely to cause problems.

如果你认真对待“最想统治人民的人是最不适合统治人民的人”这句谚语,那么你就应该对可转移性持怀疑态度,正是因为可转移性使得治理权力从最有可能为治理提供有价值投入的温顺者手中流向最有可能制造问题的权力饥渴者手中。

As a counterpoint, please read about the “liquid democracy” form of governance, which is almost the exact opposite of what he proposes.

Moreover the whole point of transferability, is that it allows price signals about what the market values, and it also reduces the problems with “sunk costs”. I.E. if the DAO is not performing well because its being mismanaged, the ability of the person to vote to leave with their assets by selling those assets, or to replace management with better ones with the goal of improving the value of the token, actually benefit the future of the DAO.

If the goal is for governance power to go to the competent, then transferability is counterproductive because nothing stops the governance rights from being bought up by the determined but incompetent.

Nothing stops the determined but also competent from also buying up shares. This is just like shareholder activism, there are those who buy up shares who are professional hedge funds looking to improve share price, and there are those who buy shares who wish to advance social causes but aren’t business savvy.
