While maximum voting power will be determined by Arbit ownership, Arbits must be “spent” in order to be used to cast a vote. These spent Arbits will enter into a CIO reserve fund that can be used to incentivize network development, growth, and participation. While initially counter-intuitive, the purpose of such a “pay-to-vote” scheme works to address one of the central criticisms of PoS governance, namely that they are quite literally plutocracies. With conventional POS governance, holding of the network token grants a user control in all votes in perpetuity (at least as long as they maintain such a holding). In Topl’s voting model, ownership grants such influence in only a single vote.
