Previous proposal retrospective

I delayed writing this proposal after the retreat (as I stated in the previous proposal retrospective), so I could assess more clearly what the next two months will look like.

The trip validated that what we’re working on is important, not only for DXdao, but also for the community, and that we are developing something interesting.


  • Fix the issues reported by Team Omega’s audit of the Gov 1.5 smart contracts
  • Work on supporting Gov 1.5 smart contracts in DAVI
  • Be involved in the planning and early technical stage of Gov 2.0
  • Support and fix bugs in live DAVI beta
  • On a general note, keep improving and adding features to DAVI
  • Increase quality and test coverage. Approach new issues with a “TDD” perspective
  • PR reviews have been a constant pain point in our development process. I’ll allocate the first hour of the day to reviews to improve on it.
  • Read more books. Specifically, start and finish “Working effectively with legacy code” and incorporate its insights into my Obsidian vault. I don’t know if this is related to my proposal, but I thought I could add it here to keep myself accountable.


  • Work full-time per the bi-weekly planning session on smart contracts and front-end issues
  • Attend the daily calls, weekly relevant (for my role) calls, bi-weekly planning sessions, and other meetings.
  • Participate in the governance process


Level increase

This current proposal includes a level increase from 2 → 3.

The experience guidelines for level 3 state:

I have skills and experience in Web3/DeFi/DAOs that translate directly to DXdao. I can provide value to key initiatives for DXdao but need guidance on how to complete and check tasks.

The level increase was brought up by squad members during the discussion of my last proposal (here, and here). I obviously can’t be objective, but I do feel that the description fits my current role.

The compensation calculations are based on that assumption.


Two periods:

  • 16/10/2022 - 15/11/2022
  • 16/11/2022 - 15/12/2022


  • Experience level: 3
  • Time commitment: full-time (40 hours per week)

Month 1 [16/10/2022 - 15/11/2022]

  • 5.000 DAI
  • 3.000 DXD, vested for 3 years with a 1-year cliff starting 15/11/2022
  • 0.1667% REP

Month 2 [16/11/2022 - 15/12/2022]

  • 5.000 DAI
  • 3.000 DXD, vested for 3 years with a 1-year cliff starting 15/12/2022
  • 0.1667% REP

Dino continues doing amazing work and is an invaluable member of the team. Fully support him moving to level 3 as suggested back at the start of his previous worker proposal.
Was also amazing meeting you in Colombia and spending time together during the retreat.


Great meeting you in Colombia! Thank you for your participation in the DXretreat, really appreciate your valuable input on the vision and future of DXdao. I support this level increase as discussed here.

Also happy to share my birthday with you :slight_smile: :birthday:


Thank you!

Meeting you all in Colombia was awesome, and it makes me enormously happy being part of this community.
