SkyMine Labs - Contributor Proposal 07/21 to 08/21

I am submitting a proposal for current on-going and future contributions to the DXdao started July 1, 2021 and finishing August 31, 2021.

I have been contributing to DXdao for over 14 months. This proposal extends the role as a contributor for a two month period.

My SkyMine Labs - 05/21 to 06/21 Contributor Recap of deliverables was based on my re-focus outlined in my 5/21 - 6/21 proposal.

I plan to continue to focus a majority of time on the DXbiz Squad revolving around product usage and business development opportunities around DXdao’s products while contributing minority time to other initiatives as well.

I estimate my time focus to be 60% DXbiz, 15% DXventures, 10% Marketing and Communications, 10% Governance, 5% product/testing/other.

What I plan to focus on and be responsible for:

DXbiz:

  • DXbiz squad leader - Coordinating DXdao’s BizDev opportunities and acting as a main internal point of contact for all things related to these opportunities.

  • Represent DXdao and its ecosystem at Ethereum events and in relationships with other DAOs, funds, projects, and partners

  • DXdao is a decentralized collective. Business Development opportunities will and should come from all over the place. All contributors, REP holders, DXD holders and community members should be doing things that benefit DXdao. However it is helpful to have a point of contact that people can reach out to ask questions, learn background or see direction from. I can fill this roll.

  • Includes the organization of and tracking of DXbiz opportunities. Checking in with points of contact and status for each opportunity

  • Opportunities focused on connecting DXdao and it’s products to other communities

      • Sell the idea of Carrot to teams and projects that have interest prior to it being ready.

Proposal Summary:

Based on the latest worker compensation guidelines, I am identifying as a full-time contributor with experience level 5.

Summary of full compensation would be:

  • 16,000 USD to be paid in xDai with 50% to be paid when the proposal gets approved and 50% on 08/31/2021 when the work agreement finishes.
  • Approval for: 12,000 USD to be paid in DXD in a vesting contract continuously for two years with a one year cliff when the work agreement finishes. The vesting contract would be created and funded in the future after 08/31/2021 and use 07/01/2021 as the starting date of the vesting.
  • 0.3333% mainnet REP to be earned on completion at 08/31/2021 - (equivalent # of REP in xDXdao will also be requested)

Additional Notes:

  1. This proposal falls under the current Contributor Guidelines, enacted on February 17, 2021. Should DXdao approve any changes to the Contributor Guidelines Compensation Structure that go into effect during my stated contract period, I reserve the right to introduce an updated DAOtalk post and on-chain proposal to adjust the above stated compensation amounts to reflect the new compensation structure.

  2. DXbiz Opportunities which the DXbiz Squad fields, seeks out, prioritizes and communicates are highly dependent on the state of DXdao’s ecosystem and products including Omen, Swapr, Aqua, and Carrot and also the stage of these products along with related initiatives such as product Guilds, product tokens, and product features. Any delays to this progress or these initiatives can highly affect DXbiz Squad’s ability to capitalize on opportunities. However, even with major obstacles, the goal is always progress in the right direction.

  3. Days off: I plan to take time off during this summer period. I do not have dates identified at this point. However, once identified, these will be communicated and tracked and I will remove any from compensation in my payment proposal.
