The fairest way to launch a #cryptocurrency is to align the incentives of users with the health of the project. A self reinforcing positive feedback loop. If adoption is what you want, users should get paid more to spread adoption.
If high value is what you want, users should be paid to lock up their coins and not dump (just like vesting in normal startups.) This also makes more space for normal currency uses as it takes load off the transactions per second capacity.
If you only care about being used as a currency, and fear a deflationary spiral, than demmurage (inflation) causes spending and the hunting of yield, because you know you're losing money just holding it. (USD does this.) Boom, bust style.
If you want unqualified people to vote on things, go ahead and give them voting shares in a thing. I'm partial to more qualified people making more complex decisions.
The incentive structure for the founders of a thing should be related to the value they brought to the thing. If they brought big money, or a new idea, or were irreplaceable, their compensation should reflect those traits. Clicking fork shouldn't be highly compensated. Innovate!
Most cryptocurrencies appear to focus on TPS, stability, appeal to some interest demographic (green coin, sports coin, politics coin, meme coin.), low supply, high supply, no/some/low/high inflation, There's only so many levers to pull and permutations to play. Which have value?
Well, since the user counts and adoption are PITIFUL. You could probably cross off all those things without product/market fit. And most of the copies of #Bitcoin with small tweaks. Who wants to get low liquidity, low hashrate, low everything for "a tweak?" Thus what has worked?
Speculation has worked. Over 3 year time frame savings has SUPER worked. Stable coins, sadly, "have worked" for now... ETH worked for the 2017 ICO bubble. Selling the picks and shovels to the miners worked for exchanges and mining hardware corps.
Currency worked on the darknet at low volume. Very low compared to the rest of crypto and extremely low compared to the normal black market in the real world.
So what's the next big thing? Currency is done. Anonymity is done. ICOs are done. Stable coins are done. CD's and Time deposits aren't done. The next big thing in #crypto is the 2nd biggest line item in your banks books. Interest bearing savings accounts. You heard it here first.
