[KGP-8] Operation of Klaytn Core Cell by the Klaytn Foundation for the Stability of Cypress

After the Kore hard fork, most of the governance parameters of Cypress (Klaytn Mainnet) shall be changed through on-chain voting on the Klaytn Square. On the other hand, in order to maintain Cypress stable, adding and removing validators should be performed in a timely manner. In particular, this task should be performed when a CN needs maintenance or recovery from any unexpected failures. Until now, the CN of Ground X has been used to serve the task on behalf of KF.

Due to the renewed relationship among KF, Ground X, and Krust Universe (Klaytn Foundation Unveils New Initiative for Ecosystem Sustainability and Transparency | Medium), KF should run an independent node to perform the responsibilities above properly and in a timely manner.

Against the background, KF proposes the Klaytn Governance Council (GC) to approve KF to run a Core Cell (CC) on Cypress.

  1. What to propose?
  • Approve KF to run a CC to fulfill the responsibility of the network main operator including the task of adding and removing a validator according to the prior agreement of GC.
  • Pre-share that the minimum staking amount for KFโ€™s CC, 5 million KLAY, will be included as part of the upcoming Q2 2023 budget proposal.
  1. What about block reward?
  • Since this node will stake 5 million KLAY, KFโ€™s node will receive block proposer reward. This block proposer reward will cover the operation cost of CC, and any remaining balance will be burned. The details of the cost will be shared with the GC and the community.
  1. What about voting power?
  • KF will automatically have 1 voting power when it operates a CC with a minimum staking amount. However, KF will always vote for abstain to maintain the role as a mediator.
  1. Voting schedule:
  • Voting starts at 9:00:00 on 21 April 2023 (KST)
  • Voting is closed at 23:59:59 on 28 April 2023 (KST)

  1. Ground X will not leave the Klaytn Governance Council. The role of Ground X in the Klaytn Ecosystem will remain as it is. The change will be only in the function of the node of Ground X.
  2. As we shared through KGP-7, GC members will be selected and removed through the voting of the Klaytn community when the Klaytn Square is able to support it. We plan to distinguish between validators and governace council members, and validators will be able to join the Klaytn network without any permission from anyone under the permissionless structure. Of course, governance council might be selected through another mechanism.

KGP-8 was approved with the participation of 17 GC Members unanimously.

  • Voted: Hashkey, Wemade, Metabora, Maekyung Media Group, Presto Labs (AQX), FSN, Kakao Corp., ABC, Swapscanner, 1inch, Quantstamp, Jump-Everstake, Netmarble, SKNetworks, NFTBank, POST VOYAGER, NEOPIN
  • Absented: Hashed-Ozys, Netmarble, Kakao Pay, Sygnum, Krosslab, Kracker Labs, Korea Economic Daily, Thrust, Kakao Entertainment, gumi, EBC-Hanwha Systems, Ground X, Binance, VNG/Verichains
  • New GC members will join the voting after their node is operationalized on the Cypress.

KGP-8 has mentioned that KF would always vote for abstention to maintain the role as a mediator. KF found a way to ensure that KF does not get any voting power, instead of voting for abstention. Therefore, the KGP-8 would be implemented accordingly.
