Against on chain governance:

  • blog post from Vlad. Snippets: "On-chain governance makes node operator participation in governance completely unnecessary." However, node operator participation is necessary for the current protocol. Thus, changing to on-chain governance is very risky. "Unless there are governance processes that get Sybil-resistant input from node operators, on-chain governance therefore always has the potential to disenfranchise node operators (and users) of the blockchain." Vlad's reply to a comment to this post.
  • Vitalik's post on plutocracy
