yearn doesn’t “lock up all users funds”, just the rewards if there is no voting going on. You can withdraw your yfi at anytime you like
By enabling this suggestion, you are effectively letting anyone at anytime withdraw their rewards. There would be zero incentive to vote for the majority of people that hold on average < 1 yfi, only the whales at can sway a vote would do so and we don’t want a small amount of people controlling things.
If there is a dry spell between votes, you could simply raise a YIP for the sole purpose of letting people vote to be able to withdraw rewards. I do not see that occurring in the near term with the sheer amount of activity going on.
YFI was created to be a governance token, not a profit share token…profit share is still critical to its success dont get me wrong here, but its not its primary function.
If this made it to a formal proposal i would vote no.
