I am not sure this is any different from any project or company, so perhaps every company should do this ?
One good fact of using the open ledger blockchain for funds is that they are available. Would not be great for inspection of every time we paid an electricity bill etc. we are not well enough resources for that, but what is an idea is we can publish the blockchain addresses of the btc. We did however put most of the btc in a cold storage and insured mechanism. Perhaps @nicklambert can speak a bit about that. We can probably put some address here to let folk see what’s happening.
Just as an aside in the last 8 years I have killed myself ensuring everyone gets paid and it would not have been possible with a load of folk watching every move and me having to explain everything. For instance I have mechanisms where, as folk think they can come into the company and rip us off (as many people think they can), but I generally have several protections in place to prevent the selfish thieves (which there are a large % of, unfortunately).
BTW this is one area the patents helped protect us as they were lodged with a foundation and licensed back with some protection rules (such as killing maidsafe meant withdrawing patents and resetting the implementation company (MaidSafe) and much more. So the bottom line is the staff just trust that I am doing what I am doing and its in their interest. They know if there is a real issue and I say so then its serious. [edit: this is why I am not a shareholder in MaidSafe, it is very difficult to buy me off by screwing the actual shareholders, that drives the asset thieves mad as my drive is not based on short term cash and cash obsessed people cannot deal with this. It is easy for me to understand greed, it is near impossible for greedy folk to understand lack of greed (in short term cash gains).]
So yes as transparent as possible. We do not have meetings that any staff member cannot hear or just come into, our board table was in the middle of all the desks for a long time, we stopped it as it was distracting. That helped money driven or MBA type folk coming in and talking about Engineers or Admin staff as assets instead of people.
So I advise some caution here as well, but take your point.
