Thanks for this Peter. It is quite long winded and complicated so I just
wanted to clarify one particular point. In John's proposal, are the coins
actually locked up, or are they still freely spendable post-vote? Otherwise
there is no real cost to casting votes. Locking coins up is related to the
time-value of money and has a cost the longer they are locked up for.
