Tammy Contract Proposal 5.12.21 - 7.12.21

Contract Period: 05/12/2021 - 07/12/2021, 2 months

Position: Contributor

Background:

Since my last proposal, I have mainly focused on Omen Guild, DXventures, and contributor company formation questions. I will continue to work in these areas but also place more focus on structuring compliance roadmaps for DXdao for AML questions with our on-chain treasury.

Proposed Responsibilities and Goals:

  • OMN Guild project management assistance in documentation for launch, manage the creation of an Omen video for the landing page with Ilio, continued work on token distribution, and seek out partnerships.
  • Work with @amphiboly to retain a firm to complete a blockchain analysis of DXdao’s treasury to establish best practices for an AML compliance program. Research, develop, and implement a compliance program that would address areas of potential exposure to KYC/AML/sanctions risks. Create a program to establish requirements around tools and data DXdao can use to screen funds and counter-parties.
  • Continued contributor assistance with company formation questions.
  • Coordination with law firm Polsinelli, PC to answer DXdao’s general legal questions.
  • DXVentures coordination. Continue to participate in and review potential venture opportunities for DXdao. Work with @sky to expand DXventures into an incubator program. Draft and review any deal flow in relation to DXventures.
  • “Contributor UX” assistance. Continue to support @Melanie @allyq, and @KeenanL ’s efforts to make contributor information and onboarding as clear and scalable as possible.

Self Evaluation: The following is a self-evaluation on what I’ve done well, okay, and not well.

  • Did Well: I’m happy with the progress we’ve made with the OMN token documentation and DXventures project proposals. I’m also happy that we (@powers) successfully completed the buyback transparency documentation.
  • Did Okay: I’ve reached out to all contributors regarding company formation, and have set up various meetings with outside counsel. However, this is still an ‘in-progress’ project that I’d like to fully complete in the first portion of this contract period. I need to follow-up more completely with outside counsel to reach a conclusion on these issues, and I’d like to make real progress on this in the coming weeks. Separately, with our new projects, like DXventures, I’m still working on how to best communicate with the community to come to a consensus on providing grants to projects.
  • Needs Improvement: I’m late on this proposal along with other budget request proposals. I also need to spend more time constructing written roadmaps on various questions that DXdao has in relation to compliance issues.

Compensation:

Experience Level: 5

Full-time for total of 40 hours per week, for two months (3.12.21 - 5.12.21):

  • $16,000 (DAI) 50% to be paid once the proposal gets approved and 50% on or after 7/12/2021 when the work contract finishes.
  • $12,000 (DXD). $6,000 (DXD) vested at 1 year, and continued vesting after the first year on a linear schedule.
  • 0.3334% REP

I joined DXdao as a part-time contributor as of 12/12/20. Prior to this, I, along with my partner under @pulpmachina, contributed for two (2) months through DAOtalk topic posts, meeting participation, and Keybase / Telegram discussions. See our list of posts here.

In case of any change in the compensation guidelines during this work period, the amounts of the compensation in this proposal will be adjusted to match the latest one from the agreed worker compensation guidelines

Payment Request: I will be making an on-chain request fro the second half of my payment for this contract period for $8,000 xdai at level 5.

Holidays: I took two days off during this contract period for memorial day weekend (which is also my birthday, very convenient :slight_smile: ), and the 4th of July. I will not be subtracting these days from my pay since they are both holidays under the Contributor Guidelines.

Update: Here is an update on what I’ve been working on based on my stated goals. I appreciate any feedback on this work, and if there are any questions on what I’ve been working on, please ask. I’m happy to give more context on some of these projects, which are ongoing and will be reflected in my next contract proposal.

  • OMN Guild project management (non-tech): documentation for guild launch, Omen video for the landing page, proposals for partnerships, and continued work on token distribution.
    • The Omen landing page video is set to be completed in the next 1-2 weeks. I’ve been working with @corkus and @caden on this, and we’ll share the video soon.
    • Supporting @Caden Payment Request:* I will be making an on-chain request fro the second half of my payment for this contract period for $8,000 xdai at level 5.

    • The Omen landing page video is set to be completed in the next 1-2 weeks. I’ve been working with @corkus and @caden on this, and we’ll share the video soon.
    • Supporting @caden who is working through a second draft of Omen Guild governance and token documentation.
    • Worked with @sky to draft a proposal for a partnership for liquidity incentives with GnosisDAO. We’re holding off on moving forward with the proposal because GnosisDAO is prioritizing other projects, but will continue to push forward with similar partnerships as the Guild launches.
    • Contacted potential contractor to prepare a branding roadmap for Omen, and will be working with @cadenr to finalize a SoW for the project. This will push off Caden’s work with the Omen mascot, Peter the Prediction Squirrel :P.
    • Paused work on the token issuance to align better with when the Guild will be ready to technically launch and to give some focus to Swapr’s arbitrum launch.
  • Blockchain analysis of DXdao’s treasury and REP holder addresses ; recommendations based on the FATF proposed rules for an AML / KYC program with [@amphiboly](Profile - amphiboly - DAOtalk).

    • Jordan and I contacted two firms, Ciphertrace and Chainalysis, to review DXdao’s REP holder addresses, as managers of the DXdao’s on-chain treasury, and the bonding curve raise as the source of DXdao’s funds. We’re going with Chainalysis to do a full report to be used for DXventures KYC/AML requirements. Still waiting on a quote because Chainalysis is still determining how to treat a DAO for contracting / regulatory purposes.
    • Jordan has already prepared notes on his findings regarding his review of DXdao’s associated ETH addresses, and we’ll have a longer report to share on DAOtalk regarding our findings and suggestions for a possible AML compliance program.
    • Conducted legal research on FATF recommendations regarding VASPs and peer-to-peer transactions, and how the potential FinCen laws could apply to DAOs, AMMs, and other dApps.
  • Contributor company formation questions.

    • Organized several meetings for contributors to clear up questions on company formation and work visas. At this point, I believe that I’ve completed this task. If any contributors still need help figuring out company formation questions, please let me know.
      *** Coordination with Polsinelli, PC to answer DXdao’s general legal questions.**
    • This is an ongoing relationship that has so far been going very well and bening used on a limited basis. The main topic that has been discussed is binary contracts and whether they fall under CFTC regulations for peer-to-peer protocols.
  • DXventures.

    • Provided written feedback to founders on pitches to DXventures.
    • Prepared for ETHVC conference
    • Legal research on formation of a legal entity for possible expansion of DXventures.
  • ContributorUX.

    • Provided edits on the proposed compensation guidelines.
    • Drafted language for contributor onboarding docs regarding legal entity formation.
  • Swapr token.

    • Provided edits for the Swapr token post.
    • Legal research on making transparency statements following SEC Chair, Hester Pierce’s, proposed token Safe Harbor Rule 2.0
  • DXdao legal entity formation – the future of DAOs with legal recognition and rights.

    • Attended several meetings with attorneys in US, Swiss, and Gibraltar jurisdictions to explore creative options for forming legal entities for DXdao.
    • Legal research on potential exposure to liability for DXdao in relation to formation of a legal entity.
