What are the criteria for the selection of the 7 candidates?
The individuals that are interested need to be highly recognized personalities in the blockchain or artificial intelligence sectors for their technical track record and integrity. They must be able to demonstrate why they would be the right people to advise on the direction of the Foundation from an ethical point of view, as well as ensuring actions are made in the interests of the SingularityNET community, and indeed best interests of the evolving global AI ecosystem.
Will these council members be on-boarded as paid advisers?
No, they will be on-boarded as volunteers to mediate the relationship between the Foundation and the token holder community.
What power to influence the foundation will this council have?
They will participate in regular meetings with Foundation management to understand and advise on its strategy.

What happens to the tokens that are considered to weight the votes?
They remain on voters wallets as no funds are transferred in this process. Instead, voters simply sign a free Ethereum transaction that records their AGI balance on that wallet. The signing secures that only the person holding the private key for that wallet will be able to vote.
How are votes weighted?
Each individual vote will bear the weight of its associated tokens. For example, If Bob has a balance of 1000 AGIs his vote will be worth 1000 points and if Alice has 100K AGIs her vote will be worth 100K points. This weighted voting mechanism ensures that community members have as much influence on the final decision as the amount of AGI they hold.
What measures are taken to ensure the integrity of the election?
Tokens considered for the election must not be moved for the duration of the voting to ensure each participant can only vote once with the considered AGI balance. Blockchain technology will be used to audit the above criteria.
