In a separate draft on possible procedures for the swap, this possibility was addressed with the following suggestion:
Breaking this down in more detail:Coins which are not claimed within the swap period shall enter the community fund to be used for server costs and other infrastructure required to maintain the network as well as for mutually agreed-upon purposes to strengthen and grow the value of the currency, such as exchange listing fees, development, public awareness and community outreach, usage incentives, etc.
- Server costs and other infrastructure required to maintain the network: Two or more seed nodes as well as a website, a block explorer and possibly also an official pool to make up for the pool we lost when its original developer abandoned the coin.
- Exchange listing fees: Required for the better exchanges.
- Development: Funding for outside developers, third party wallets, team milestones.
- Public awareness and community outreach: Funds for translation bounties, invite campaigns, retweets, youtube videos, blogposts, referrals and affiliate programs, etc
- Usage incentives: Coin faucets, preloaded wallets, SatoshiDice-style sites with free coins for new signups.
All expenditures should be governed by the purpose of strengthening and growing the value of the currency and should be mutually agreed-upon by a group of community volunteers drawn from among the stakeholders of the coin, such as early miners and hodlers from among the current 22 members of the community group or the even larger number of supporters signed up for the coin's Discord and Telegram channels.
Since the number of unclaimed claims is not yet known (and may even turn out to be an inconsequential amount) we might also want to prepare for looking into better ways of funding this community fund. Some coins do this with a governance fee taken out of block rewards, but other suggestions and different ideas are also open for discussion.
