Lovely! Would love to learn more about how this work and how we can use this. Who can share some info on this?

Hey @Luuk Still some tiny fixes to be made with this.
Generally when setting up a DAO / Using Scheme registrar you can create a RepFromToken scheme which can use either a token and corresponding rep amount or a whitelist that will allow redeeming of reputation.

Originally developed for PolkaDAO We’ve used it in almost all dHacks, this latest development will allow a server to pay the transaction cost of such redemption transaction.

While this is much better from a UX point of view the total gas costs are about x3

This works well with fresh (no ETH balance) giveaway pkey/pubkey pairs whitelisted to redeem reputation in a DAO.
