Free TON Community voice Subgovernance expense estimate (December 2020 - January 2021)

  1. Jury contest for Free TON Community voice Subgovernance:
  • Welcome bonus for Jury members - 100 TONs each
  • Reward per initial member for reviewing and voting: (‘total votes’ / ‘number of submissions’) x 500 TON
  1. Learn your country contest: a list of progressive countries will be formed where crypto and blockchain technologies are popular among the population. It’s proposed in the contest to collect thorough information about local media, bloggers, active social media groups and channels that can be used to deliver Free TON news and value of true decentralization. It is essential to have basic (at least) data on the number of visitors/views.
  • 100 000 TON reward fund
  • 10% Jury award


For the initial implementation of plans on the current Subgovernance and immediate plans, it is necessary to:

a) Initiate Community voice Subgovernance with initial members.

b) Allocate to the Community voice Subgovernance wallet ~130 000 TONs (TON Crystals)

Free TON Wallet address



Anyone can participate, but Free TON does not distribute TONs to US citizens or entities.


Извините за русский, который есть дурной тон, но что это за приветственный бонус 1500? За просто так. Легенды в подписной за 5 недель меньше должны получить (еще и не получили). Дайте мне приветственный бонус тоже за популяризацию фритон например, в твиттере, и в частности в оф. блоге. статьями, которые уж всяко не хуже чем то, что появилось в коинтелеграф (не сравниваю масштабы, а лишь содержимое, одно дело 7 миллинов а другое маленький такой бонус) не претендую на участие в жюри, все равно не выберут. Ну что не жалко бонус выделить?


Please, read the proposal carefully :slight_smile:

Very nice comment! :wink:

Finally this Subgov is shaping. Please add short bio to each nickname, like it was done for Korean SG.

I re-wrote the text about welcome bonus. Originally it meant 1500 in total for 15 jury members (15x100).

It seems that it was not that clear, thus, now is reads as “Welcome bonus for Jury members - 100 TONs each”.

Looks like a club of initial members. Can you point us, who is definitely not? :crazy_face:

Вам надо было изначально выделять из бюджета больше кристаллов для разработчиков. Чтобы избежать недопонимания в сообществе. Создайте пропозал для дополнителного выделения кристаллов для Тон лабс и разработчиков, я уверен его поддержит все коммьюнити( я поддержу любую сумму). Иначе это выглядит как разделение людей на слои. И в будущем может оттолкнуть от Free TON новых участников.

They allocated 250 million tokens to themselves. What could be better?!

За реализацию такого проекта они достойны большего. На мой взгляд подходящая сумма минимум 1 000 000 000.

I’m afraid, such big amount in hands of a small group eliminates the idea of decentralization completely.

Децентрализация -это распределенная система хранения данных, которую можно использовать для противостояния с монополиями. Децентрализация по финансовому принципу невозможна. Пример тот же биткоин и киты.

If your voting power will be in direct relation with amount of TONs you have under control, that is not just a financial story any more. I hope, that will never happen in SMV.

Superb team! :blush: :+1:

Будет ли мое предложение, обсуждаемое в прошлой ветке, принято данным сабговернансом? Или все-таки мне создават конкурс? ( [Withdrawn] Free TON - Community Voice Sub-Governance)

Whether my proposal, discussed in the last thread, made by subgovernmental? Or do I still get a contest? ( [Withdrawn] Free TON - Community Voice Sub-Governance)

If you read the proposal for subgov carefully, you will see a contest ‘learm your country’. To send any letters out, you should have a media list.

Delivering news, of course, is one of the goals of this subgov.


Great line-up, good idea

Hello, Why this important sub governance is inactive yet? This has been passed on 7 Dec 2020.

There is little activity in this SG. You may need to edit the composition of the members. Add new members with fresh ideas. It’s time to make plans for the future.
