DXLisbon Contributor Stipend and Funds

Lisbon Blockchain Week is almost here!

This is a great opportunity for our DXdao contributors to have our first retreat and participate in Lisbon’s blockchain week. As shown here, DXRetreat has been something DXdao has discussed in depth, and also passed an onchain proposal to solidify the importance of holding one. In addition, participating in conferences, and events such as LISCON, and Lisbon Blockchain week are highly beneficial to DXdao as it ensures professional growth for our contributors, product exposure, and networking opportunities.

Below outlines a proposal for a contributor stipend and additional funding for side events and misc. expenses during the two weeks. Examples of costs the additional funding will cover are: DXdao’s Prediction Market Event + Happy Hour, DXBeer, joint lunches/dinners, catering and supplies for Greaterthan workshop, and local taxes for accommodations.

Contributor stipend

Includes:

  • $50 / daily (up to $800 max)

  • $300 (from Europe) or $600 (everywhere else)

  • LISCON ticket cost

Contributors will be able to claim these funds on either network, as part of their contributor proposal or as a standalone proposal. Important to note that accommodations, and a number of contributor meals will be provided by DXdao.

Funds

Additionally, we are requesting $15k in funds for additional expenses during the two weeks. These funds will be held in the DXdao MS and distributed ad-hoc, any eventual funds left over will be returned to the DXdao mainnet treasury.

An initial proposal was passed on mainnet to cover accommodation costs - see also the forum thread.

Looks great to me - also makes sense to have different travel stipends for EU / non-EU contributors.

Excited to see you all soon :slight_smile:

I submitted the proposal on mainnet - and I can’t use DXvote on mainnet due to: EIP 1559 - Hardware Wallets · Issue #204 · DXgovernance/dxvote · GitHub

I am creating this post as a draft proposal to amend the original DXEvents Lisbon Contributor Stipend and Funds Proposal.

After receiving requests from multiple DXdao contributors, I am suggesting the following costs are amended, and included for the Lisbon Contributor Stipend:

  • $300 (from Europe) or $600 $800 (everywhere else)
  • $200 in mandatory travel related COVID-19 testing fees

If I receive positive feedback from the community I will be posting this on chain in the next few days. Thank you for your consideration everyone.
