What is Eden+Fractal?
Eden+Fractal is an innovative consensus game that combines the benefits of Eden Elections and ƒractally to help communities cooperate for mutual benefit.
With this elegant process, community members both respect contributions to the community and elect delegates during the same breakout room. Delegates form councils that update each week, then recent councils cooperate to represent the will of the community, express shared opinions, and make community decisions.
This process was proposed by Tadas on October 2nd, 2022 and informally approved with supermajority consensus by the Eden ƒractal community in Meeting 18. The Eden ƒractal community cooperated with the Eden+Fractal process and elected delegates for the first time during Meeting 19. The community reached consensus to approve the first proposal with this process during Meeting 22.

The Roots of Eden + Fractal
The Eden+Fractal process is composed of innovative processes of Eden Elections and ƒractally, which were both created by Daniel Larimer and freedom engineers on the ƒractally team.
All of these innovative consensus mechanisms are rooted in the principles of More Equal Animals to create a better world for all. The Eden+Fractal process is also a product of communication between many amazing community members in Eden ƒractal, Genesis ƒractal, and Eden on EOS.
