I have seen one discussion about increasing Curation rewards. I think the larger issue is about decentralization. Query fees for curators act like the proverbial canary in the coalmine. If they are low, or nonexistent in many cases, curators will cease signalling, and that can turn into a downward spiral that basically says, decentralization is not working. Though I am a curator, I think this indication of the success of decentralization is more important than the fees curators receive.
One possible source of help is to make clear guidelines about the share level required to receive query fees. It remains a mystery to me, and perhaps many curators, how much of a signal is worthwhile, and what the expected return would be.
I realize the network is in bootstrap mode and there are plenty of fundamental issues to work out. In consideration of that, it would be helpful to see a regular status update, and how various improvements are making progress on the road to decentralization. Thoughts?
