## Summary of Choices
*(Presented in alphabetical order)*
### ["Decentralized Steem Incubator"](https://steemit.com/foundationproposal/@alexvan/steem-foundation-a-decentralized-steem-incubator-for-the-future-proposal-v2-0) Submitted By @alexvan

### ["DeCentraSteem"](https://steemit.com/foundationproposal/@impactn/decentrasteem-final-proposal-for-a-decentralised-structure-in-favour-of-communities-on-stee) Submitted By @impactn
> DeCentraSteem, a decentralised structure made of a network of ever-changing self-organised working circles. One purpose, strengthening communities, and nine rules make it work without a central board.
### ["Foundation Structure Proposal"](https://github.com/pauliusuza/steem-alliance) Submitted By @upheaver
> The goal of this proposal is to create and grow a sustainable ecosystem around Steem blockchain and to make Steem the leading blockchain for decentralized apps and communities worldwide.
> The proposal features a robust fiat based management structure, fundraising through corporate and individual membership fees, various types of funding activities and on-chain advisory role for Steem community.
### ["The Merger"](https://steemit.com/foundationproposal/@shadowspub/foundation-proposal-the-merger) Submitted By @shadowspub
> The goal of this proposal is to combine some of the best ideas put forward and work alongside Steemit Inc to build the most beneficial Community Foundation possible, through collaboration. The Foundation will be where community members, investors, developers, and influencers come together to advance the Steem ecosystem and underlying technology.
### ["People Survive By Supporting Each Other"](https://steemit.com/thealliance/@thehive/i-made-a-proposal) Submitted by @TheHive
> Investment of Steem in FIAT industry is what will bring an assurancce of the demand for Steem. Creating industry and a chain owned (not privately owned) company in the FAT world providing local services provides an opportunity to have Steem used in a concentrated environment. As opposed to being used across continents. Growing hubs or localities that later can join and support each other. The growth of the Chain and the benefits of using it get amplified with compound growth over time, Reducing the reliance on and the influence of entities outside of the Chain. Let's Build it together.

## How To Ensure Fairness
The goal of this group from the beginning has been to be transparent, fair and accountable to the community. ALL transcripts from the inception can be found on chain and/or within The Steem Alliance Discord Server. There are no closed rooms, it all can be seen right there.
Due to feedback we have received we want to ensure this election has another level of transparency and accountability.
The election will have open audit logs (just like the working group election did) and will be released (just like before).
**We ask that each Proposal Team form a group to review the election audits, as well as anyone from the community as well. This way there will be multiple eyes on the results, reviewing and ensuring fairness is achieved.**
### This election will be decided by the community vote, not the working group.
* The community will decide.
* In case of tie, there will be a run off election.
The working group (or anyone involved in the proposals) will vote just like everyone else. Their vote will be weighed based on the method detailed above. This is a community election.
Open audits will be available, we hope many groups step up to review them.
