We are OpenSquare team, currently dedicated to infrastructure building in the dotsama ecosystem, has developed and are maintaining products including subsquare, dotreasury, statescan, etc. We are proposing a specification to decentralize dotsame off-chain governance discussions data.
In current governance workflow, community users leave proposal context and have discussions in centralized platforms like Polkassembly, Subsquare, etc. Though usually these platforms have public APIs with which community members or other platforms can sync the data, there are still problems.
We propose SIMA spec to solve above problems. SIMA defines a set of user actions and data standards to decentralize off-chain governance data for substrate based blockchains. In general, with this spec governane users sign their actions data with their polkadot keys, submit the signed data to spec implementers. Spec implementers will be responsible for submitting the IPFS CID of user actions data to blockchain with a
It's still in draft status, and we'll be very appreciated with any suggestions. We will begin the development when the community reach some degree of consensus with its feasibility. Please check the full spec.
SubSquare is a platform that helps people make decisions about the Polkadot ecosystem. The OpenSquare team is proposing a new way to store data about these decisions.
The current way of storing data has some problems, like not being able to verify the data or losing data if a platform stops working.
The OpenSquare team has proposed a new way to store data called SIMA. SIMA will make sure the data is always accessible and auditable.
With SIMA, users will sign their actions data with their Polkadot keys, and submit the signed data to spec implementers.
SIMA is still in draft status, and the OpenSquare team is looking for suggestions before they start developing it.
