Shared ownership of smart contracts

Anons. I have a dream. Imagine. Picture it. See it within you. Shared ownership of smart contracts. Each smart contract deployed on the NoM or any extension chain can be auctioned and sold for ZNN to multiple buyers who then own it collectively, sharing possible revenue and governance, much like Pillars now do with the NoM. ZNN used to buy would be burned or returned to A.Z. Imagine the infinite layers of market anons. Imagine leverage trading shares of smart contracts anons. Imagine the narrative and all the ways we’d be different for both Bitcoin, ETH or any other chains anons.

Imagine. Discuss.

Smart contracts owned by smart contracts. Interesting.


Interesting concept. Is this available today on other chains? I googled around and did not find much.

I have no idea but it might open many interesting DeFi legos for us and new community to join.


Interesting idea. If contract deploying would automatically issue an NFT which would receive part of the fees generated by the usage of the contract, it could accomplish what you’ve described.


There you got our interesting NFTs pathway for the NoM :stuck_out_tongue:


An economic usecase that I didn’t emphasis is that ZNN become de facto the governance currency of every single project built on the NoM. The implication are tremendous. Project creators still make money selling their onchain software IPO style (let’s call it Initial Smart Contract Offering), then we own it. The system forces them to create tokens with actual utility - even just memes - they can MM the same way they used to. But ZNN remains King of the ecosystem with governance rights on the smart contracts. No more BS governance shitcoins.
