Proposal (CIP) Outline

Proposal Outline

*CIP means Cover Improvement Plan

Summary

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” Simply describe the outcome the proposed change intends to achieve. This should be non-technical and accessible to a casual community member.

Background

This section should include any relevant information that the community needs to know before reading the rest of your proposal, such as a short introduction to any concepts that will be discussed. Additionally, this section is an ideal place to clarify points that are within the scope of your proposal and those that are relevant but remain outside the scope of the present proposal.

Motivation

This is the problem statement. This is the reason for the CIP. It should clearly explain why the current state of the protocol is inadequate. It is critical that you explain why the change is needed. For instance, if the CIP proposes changing how something is calculated, you must address why the current calculation is inaccurate or wrong. This section may also include why certain design choices were made over others, and can include data from previous discussions and forum posts.

Specification

This section details how the CIP will solve the problem, and should clearly and succinctly describe how the new feature will be implemented.

Additionally, you should include clearly defined, unbiased For and Against options along with a poll to gauge sentiment.

For:

Enter the outcome of the For side

Against:

Enter the outcome of the Against side

Poll:
