Q.) In our community Telegram it was asked by not_un: "Could you be more specific in describing Holographic Consensus ?"
A.) Answered by @Matan [DAOstack Architect]:
ANY decentralized governance system (DGS) has a real, inevitable tension between scale (number of decisions to process at a given time) and resilience (decisions are made in line with majority “truth”/will, as weighted by voting power).
To solve for scale a DGS has to allow for decisions to be obtained without ABSOLUTE majority, where absolute means with regard to all voting power (rather than with regard only to those who voted - called relative majority).
But to maintain resilience, those “edge decisions” must be GUARANTEED to be in line with the majority.
We call this effect “holographic consensus”, where under some special conditions any decision obtained, by arbitrarily small group, would reflect perfectly the opinion and knowledge of the majority.
This resembles the effect of a hologram, wherein every piece of the hologram actually contains the information of the entire image.
a) allow some decisions to be obtained via relative majority, without any quorum needed;
b) protect the collective attention by limiting the number of those proposals;
b*) make this protection dynamic (so that more proposals can penetrate the collective attention if there’s more security in place; and vice versa, drive more security when more proposals penetrate the collective attention);
c) filter those proposals to have good ods to be approved;
d) crypto-economically monetize and incentivize for the finding and signaling of mismatches between active proposals status quo and the DAO predicted truth (the would-be decision once everyone look at it). this would be the critical element.
