By leveraging data analytics and feedback mechanisms, I will stay attuned to the miners’ needs and priorities, ensuring their interests are not only voiced but also actively addressed. Additionally, I will advocate for smart contract enhancements that directly benefit the miner community, such as optimizing rewards distribution and enhancing transaction efficiency. My role will also involve educating miners about upcoming changes and their potential impact, maintaining a clear and consistent dialogue. This participatory approach aims to build a more inclusive and responsive governance structure, where every miner’s voice is heard and valued, and their interests are robustly protected and promoted within the Telcoin ecosystem.
