Weekly Genesis Digests

_DAOfest is getting its voice! Check out the first speakers added to the list!

_What do you need to start your own DAO? From @StratisKaradakis

Basically, three things:

(1) shared goal or mission which the DAO will have

(2) shared resource that the DAO will manage

(3) a core community of Reputation holders who will bootstrap the DAO

By @erikrodrigues

_@Jantinine invited @liviade to present DAOstack and the Genesis community in Ape Unit’s office in Berlin!

_@papa_raw invites us all to decentralize the ecosystem’s chats!

Hey all —

As Genesis continues to grow it’s important and encouraged to generally decentralize chats from this channel and find ecosystemic niches :bug: that everyone can thrive in :sunny::seedling:

There are a number of other chats supported by the DAOstack team to help facilitate this process — but they are by no means the only ones available! Many communities comprise Genesis and we encourage the creation of channels beyond the team supported channels as it will be impossible to rapidly scale by simply using one channel💪

If you have a community / channel that’s part of the DAOstack ecosystem and would like it to be included in the pinned post, please reach out, and I’d be happy to add it!


_Genesis Community had a call for APAC timezone pollinators organized by @shivgupt, check notes here!

_MakerDAO is looking for DAO Builders, check the job description!

_@jossbot ALGORITHM OF DONATED DREAMS proposal has been approved! Reach out to her to participate in it’s mysterious set of activities.

18 Genesis Digest | Sat, Jul 13

A little bit of thought-provoking: Is life (or at least a part of it) evolving into blockchain based systems? From Philippe Honigman’s “What is a DAO?” article:

“DAO” clearly designates something broader than the typical definition of “organization” — a social group which brings people together and works toward a common purpose. Vitalik thus defines a DAO as “an entity that lives on the internet and exists autonomously, but also heavily relies on hiring individuals to perform certain tasks that the automaton itself cannot do.” Richard Burton is even more explicit: “DAO is a fancy way of saying a digital system living on Ethereum.”


Genesis Beta high-level vision and map shared by @katebee in our last community call


_CuraDAO is live! Be the first one to submit a proposal! Contact @Luukweber, @rassenguy or @rubenrussel7 about how to get involved!

_By @arsena21 - The “one pager” proposal which recently got approved morphed into “posters” which we can printed off for DAO events or even posted around our cities gorilla style! Here are drafts, would love to get some thoughts / feedback (QR will link to DAO info page)! http://prntscr.com/obhg8z , http://prntscr.com/obhgeb , http://prntscr.com/obhghm

_@papa_raw and @dOrgJelli were teaching high schoolers about DAOstack at the Bushwick Generator

_@CyberRabbit88 is organizing the Promethean Fire meetup in London,

join the discussion!

_@exponent presented Alchemy and lots of other interesting projects in Auckalnd, keep an eye out, Koala DAO is coming!

Alchemy Updates

  • show expired proposals with rewards in the redemptions page
  • new loading animation for alchemy :slight_smile:
  • unclaimed redemptions indicator
  • added coin switch and liquid to the buy gen options
  • Fixed some UI bugs in the staking popup, mobile DAO view, proposal pages, etc…

Introduction to dhack

DAOs marching forward part II

Fundraising module for the dxDAO


_Interesting discussions happening at @daodesign tg chat. A channel dedicated to use case mapping, strategy, incubation and design of the DAO ecosystem

Featured question from @Brianxv

Q: If someone created a DAO in DAOStack (like testDAO for example) would there be any maintenance costs?

A: Deployment of a DAO currently requires a few (3-4) transactions. Their price depends mostly on the number of addresses you want to list initially.

Governance costs: DAOstake (the automatic down stake the DAO places) is configurable, so you determine the cost, according to your DAO activity level and attention demand.

:studio_microphone::earth_africa: New episode of the DAO to Earth series - “A great conversation with @pepoospina about Collective One, the Underscore Protocol and its possible connections with Alchemy”.

October Alchemy updates

:computer: Features and UX updates

  1. A popup is now available in the upper right hand corner where users can now redeem all redemptions available across all DAOs. When a new redemption is available, the “Redemption Star” is marked by a red indicator icon.

  2. List of voters in the Voters Popup, available to the left of the “For” button in the proposal menu now shows the user’s profile username, if they have selected one:

  3. Now Alchemy prevents the user from accidentally connecting with wrong networks and a notification is issued in case they are logged into their wallet for networks other than mainnet.

  4. A red notification icon now appears when a user has unread Disqus comments in the DAO’s Wall.

  5. Descriptive message while loading and waiting for information from caching layer

  6. Alchemy now supports ENSregistry scheme which will be featured in upcoming NecDAO. This will allow DAO to interact with ENS contract for eg. create DAO subdomains or to set name to eth address resolver for DAO

:cyclone: Optimisation

  1. The page loading time for Alchemy has been improved by with optimized queries and fewer subscriptions to the subgraph

  2. When you click on the proposal description icon the description link opens in a new tab, so you don’t exit Alchemy to see proposal details.

  3. Now for the returning Alchemy user they do not have to re-select which wallet to connect to Alchemy ( metamask, portis, walletConnect or fortmatic), instead the last selected choice will be detected automatically and used.

:hammer_and_pick: Minor UI updates

  1. Better DAO cards layout on mobile devices

  2. Hide WalletConnect provider option in mobile devices

  3. Fit wallet providers popup window for mobile devices

  4. Friendly display for error conditions (404 pages)

:microbe: Bugs Fixed

  1. Align headers of table in proposal history

  2. Re-add redeem for beneficiary button to proposal details page

  3. Fix error on initializing arc

  4. Fix infinite scroll loading of queued scheme proposals

  5. When the user changes current account in Metamask extension, alchemy now detects the account change and re-connects with the new Metamask account

This is the last Digest of the year! It’s a bit quieter than usual as many are getting into holiday mode. The debt slowed proposals down but opened space for important discussions! Thanks so much for being part of this community and for all you shared here. We are exploring unknown grounds, let’s all be proud of the steps we are giving together.
