I am working on the signalling team and two of the signals we want to include is Miner Hash-rate Signaling, and Node Operator signalling. I was listening in on last weeks core-dev call and there was discussion about the competing mining reward reductions, and a communicated desire to hear how the mining community felt about these changes. Seeing as this sort of signaling is on our Roadmap I am doing some digging into what we would need if any EIP development to support these two signals.
- Signal support for an arbitrary set of EIPs
- Any set up EIPS can be signaled
- It is okay if that set be size limited due to implementation requirements
- Three positions supported
On the ethereum governance gitter I was pointed to this having already existed.
There was some open questions regarding whether an arbitrary set would affect consensus.
A formalized system for encoding these may fit for an EIP. Also, if we needed to make any changes would any of them require a hard fork?
I am happy to cowrite an EIP with anyone for either of the two signals.
