It needs to be more than just stake. Monopoly is inevitable, and has long ago made nominal funds to 51% Hive trivially available to many censors today. Sun Yuchen has proved to be terribly anti-free speech, and he's the least of the threat in terms of hodlings IRL.
We depend on stake to control governance, of Hive. It's like wearing a t-shirt and calling it a bullet proof vest.
