We are discussing here the governance topics as pioneers of something great. It is us who will charter the way forward. One man once told me, “It is incredibly hard to replace the foundation of a building that has already been built.” .
I think this applies wonderfully right now to Uniswap. The pioneers(us) will bear the brunt of the most crucial decisions; therefore, we should also bear the fruit of our actions.
That is why I think it would be only appropriate to burn the tokens arising from the additional inflation in order to reward the current governors of Uniswap for their participation. The inflation was added in order to onboard more people into the project after 4 years, but I think this can be done wonderfully even without the inflation.
Think about it: the foundation we built, we cherish.
The new users could see the rewards the original Uniswap governors received and be incentivized to foster further proposals which would benefit the ecosystem.
What I do not think is appropriate is to say that the current UNI governors who put in incredible work now should be punished for their contribution.
