Tomás has been doing a fantastic job onboarding and it was a pleasure to meet him in Colombia.
Glad you are increasing your time commitment and can’t wait to see you learn and contribute more!



This proposal should end on 8/1/2023 but i’ll end it one week earlier and claim the rest of the proposal on a new one submitted on DAVI.

For Month 2, instead of what was submitted on this proposal i’ll claim:

  • 2.225 DAI (23 days instead of 31 → 23*3.000/31)
  • 1.113 DXD (=23*1.500/31) vested for 3 years with a 1-year cliff starting the 8/12/2022
  • 0,093% REP (=23*0,125/31)

What went well

  • During this period we worked on implementing TheGraph, subgraphs for DAVI which we did doing pair programming with very good results. In a very short time we had a functioning version which will add a lot of value to DAVI when we get it integrated. I enjoyed working on it and learning new stuff.

  • Most of the other PRs were working on DAVI, both features and bugs. I’m feeling each time more comfortable working on DAVI’s code and I feel I’m adding value to it.

What to improve

  • Each issue I have on DAVI I try to do it consciously, trying to understand well how and why things are done as they are. This makes me a bit slower to do each task, but I see it as a good investment for next ones.

  • I feel I still have stuff to learn on smart contracts and specifically on the dao which will help me get more involved both on the programming as on the DAO in general.
