Which is good. The person who bought the NFT now lost its price in voting power, but gained the voting power of the NFT. The person who sold the NFT lost the NFT’s voting power but gained the voting power of the GHST. The mismatch between price of the NFT and its voting power might fluctuate over time, but both parties are aware of the mismatch if the NFT has a fixed voting power assigned to it. So sending the NFT back and forth, or selling it back and forth, accomplishes no net gain in voting power.
Like I said, I don’t see this as a problem for baazaar sales, but I do get your point in terms of the initial sale. The GHST that was spend in the auction wasn’t entirely burnt. Some went to bidders, some to Pixelcraft, and some will be used for realm rewards.
But that is still no reason to decrease the NFT holders voting power because the person who bought it at auction COULD have never received an RF reward, and it could have been their first and only bid. So as far as the governance process is concerned, the NFT holder is not really the person that gets voting power out of thin air. Quite the opposite: The NFT holder paid for it in full. The people who get voting power out of thin air are the RF winners, people who were outbid, and Pixelcraft. Yet, for each of them, a case can be made that this is, in fact, also, not out of thin air, or at least not a big issue.
The bidders actually wanted the NFT and got some GHST as a consolation prize, or they wanted the payout and took on the “risk” of getting the NFT. The RF reward winners likely spend a lot more on their wearables than the voting power they have (e.g. fireball bubble) and hence “deserve” RF reward boost to their voting power. And Pixelcraft simply doesn’t use its millions of GHST to rig the governance process.
Like I pointed out above, this would actually disadvantage the people who did spend the full amount. If you really wanted it to be fair, you would need to take voting power away from the people who received payouts, not from the people who spend the full amount by winning the auction.
And why 80% of the floor price? A lot of people spend a lot more than floor:
Humble mean price: 236.84
Reasonable mean price: 430.94
Spacious mean price: 1730.29
The problem really is (whether mean or floor) that the prices people paid are not proportional to the worth of the NFT as determined by alchemica deposits. Our biggest future ecosystem will be the GEX and hence I believe it is important that voting power should really be proportional to the worth of the parcel in alchemica.
