§Alliance Pallet

The Alliance Pallet provides a collective that curates a list of accounts and URLs, deemed by the voting members to be unscrupulous actors. The Alliance

  • provides a set of ethics against bad behavior, and
  • provides recognition and influence for those teams that contribute something back to the ecosystem.


The network initializes the Alliance via a Root call. After that, anyone with an approved identity and website can join as an Ally. The MembershipManager origin can elevate Allies to Fellows, giving them voting rights within the Alliance.

Voting members of the Alliance maintain a list of accounts and websites. Members can also vote to update the Alliance’s rule and make announcements.


  • Rule: The IPFS CID (hash) of the Alliance rules for the community to read and the Alliance members to enforce. Similar to a Charter or Code of Conduct.
  • Announcement: An IPFS CID of some content that the Alliance want to announce.
  • Member: An account that is already in the group of the Alliance, including two types: Fellow, or Ally. A member can also be kicked by the MembershipManager origin or retire by itself.
  • Fellow: An account who is elevated from Ally by other Fellows.
  • Ally: An account who would like to join the Alliance. To become a voting member (Fellow), it will need approval from the MembershipManager origin. Any account can join as an Ally either by placing a deposit or by nomination from a voting member.
  • Unscrupulous List: A list of bad websites and addresses; items can be added or removed by voting members.
