The section wallet contains any unissued safecoins and is intended for paying rewards to nodes. It’s controlled by the elders and can only be spent from when elders agree. I’m wondering if there are any other legitimate uses for those funds besides just rewards?
One example I feel is a pretty good idea: the section history is a really useful thing to know (ie how the section membership has changed over time to get to where it is right now) since it allows anyone to verify the section has come from the original network and is not an impostor network.
It seems really useful to be able to store the section history on the safe network so anyone can download and verify it. This data could potentially be saved by the network itself using the funds in the section wallet (which so far have only been earmarked for paying rewards). Every time the section membership changes the change is appended to a global record of all sections, paid for by the section wallet.
Do you think this idea could work and could be useful? Are there any other ways the section coins might be used?
