Shipping is critical to DXdao. And it is important for DXdao to recognize its members that excel at shipping products, processes, deals, and more. @corkus and I have put together a draft proposal that aims to recognize past contributions with a financial reward. The aim is to honor DXdao’s most productive members for their efforts, and to retain and attract people who will carry DXdao forward in its mission to build market leading DeFi products and innovate in decentralized organization.
The rewards are for shipping, meaning the effort has been completed and the result is live and being used. We suggest three levels of reward, described below. If this idea receives support and passes governance, then such nominations could be revisited periodically. When development of Carrot gets further along, it could make sense to move towards prospective incentives rather than retrospective rewards.
Level 3 - $15K in ETH or stables + $5K Vesting DXD
This reflects excellence in execution and delivering results which differentiate DXdao from its competition.
Level 2 - $5K in ETH or stables + $1K Vesting DXD
This reflects leadership in execution within DXdao, demonstrating leadership amongst a squad or the collective at large.
Level 1 - $1K in Vesting DXD
This reflects consistency and dedication that create positive results for DXdao
Level 3 ($15K ETH + $5K DXD) Nominations
- Federico for Swapr DIY Farming and Eco Routing - These two features make Swapr unique amongst DEXes and demonstrate the promise that DXdao can lead through innovation in user experience - Federico delivered smart contracts, UI, and more for Swapr, and nearly single-handedly brought Swapr’s roadmap to life.
Level 2 Nominations
- Augusto for DXtrust - Augusto joined DXdao before the launch of DXtrust and was instrumental in the completion of its development. - Kaden for Scalar Markets - Kaden started as a frontend-developer for Omen but has quickly transitioned to a lead development role. He rapidly and without help got deep into the Omen tech stack and delivered scalar markets without any delays. - Keenan for Discord and DXdocs - Keenan arrived at DXdao, filling a large gap in community management. While he has contributed across many communications and marketing efforts, two of his notable achievements are the DXdao discord server and DXdocs. The Discord launch several months ago was a giant leap forward for community development and the more recently launched DXdocs promises to help demystify DXdao’s complexities. - Chris Powers for Governance 2.0 Signal Proposal and DXD Buyback - Chris has tackled some of DXdao’s most daunting problems with grit and finesse. - Zett for Swapr Beta Design - Operating within the confines of what initially was a Uniswap fork, Zett has designed the DIY farming and Eco routing experience which has received great feedback from the community and furthermore Zett has been a great example for DXdao product teams in creating and maintaining a visible product roadmap.
Level 1 Nominations
- Dave for Quarterly Reports - Nico for GP and Uniswap liquidity relayers - Augusto for DXsnapshot monitoring tool - Nico for Security Monitoring channel - Matt Finestone for early evangelism of DXdao and for Rails - Nylon for xDXdao Base - Kobello for leading the Omen Squad - Milan for landing page and DXdocs implementation - Milan for integrating the xDai bridge into Omen - Tammy for OMN Guild Post
