AppreciationDAO is an experiment to introduce the DXdao community to Coordinape as an effective coordination tool. Using it in a small year-end trial will provide contributors a chance to experience it.
As 2021 comes to an end, a lot has happened in the DXdao ecosystem. It seems appropriate to have an opportunity to express appreciation to any of your co-contributors at this time. This appreciation could be for the value they’ve created for DXdao, the hard work they’ve put in, the advice they’ve provided, the knowledge they may have shared, or anything else you appreciate that they have contributed.
Within this system, you will have the opportunity to write a “Note of Appreciation” and gift GIVE tokens to that teammate.
Each contributor will have 100 total GIVE tokens to distribute among the group.
Upon completion of the Epoch period, we will have an Appreciation Map showing flows of gratitude between contributors.
The plan is then to use this map to distribute an end-of year “trial” bonus to the recipients according to the GIVE distribution.
The proposed total distribution pot for this Epoch would be $25k. This could be in wxDAI or in DXD.
The following details should help provide some steps of the process.
Coordinape set-up steps (you can do these steps today):
- Visit: https://app.coordinape.com/
- Connect your wallet
- Confirm you are part of the DXdao Core Circle. (if not, please contact Sky or Melanie)
- Set-up your profile and include a short note in the “What have you been working on?” field
- Select any or all squad members you will want to gift to
December 2021 Epoch Details:
- The Epoch will begin and last about 7 days
- Write a “Short Note of Appreciation” and gift GIVE tokens to your Teammates
- Gift out all your GIVE tokens
Following the Epoch, the distribution rewards can be sent out via a Disperse Mechanism using the DXdao Dev Multichain MS on xDai.
For this first experiment, the plan is to test Coordinape with DXdao’s current core contributors as the Circle. It is possible to have a wider community Circle or more narrow Squad Circles as well.
