On-Chain Governance

On-Chain Governance 

The "On-Chain Governance" Pillar is an organization of thought of the Libranican Project.   The Libranican Project is designed by the Dark Street Organization to organize information sources in the cryptocurrency world around specific subjects so that information, opinions, media, and arguments can be found quickly in silos of information called Pillars.

This Pillar focuses on sources that explain what On-Chain Governance is:

Quick Facts:

Definition of Blockchain from Investopedia.
On-chain governance is a system for managing and implementing changes to cryptocurrency blockchains. In this type of governance, rules for instituting changes are encoded into the blockchain protocol. Developers propose changes through code updates and each node votes on whether to accept or reject the proposed change. 

Why is this important?
On-Chain Governance has become a major topic of discussion in the cryptocurrency community after the hard forks of Bitcoin and Ethereum.  The idea of On-Chain Governance is to better balance decision making among stake holders and allowing for flexibility and changes without a disagreement creating a hard fork.
A variety of new Cryptocurrency was launched with the primary goal of having an On-Chain form of governance.
