As the number of DXdao contributors grows, it’s important to ensure that the worker proposal process is smooth and clear. Previously, we revised the Worker Compensation Guidelines for a simpler v2, that was approved by REP holders in September.
These clarified compensation levels and aligned interests with DXD holders, but there are still shortcomings to the current system that put too much burden on contributors.
Some issues and concerns raised on the last two Governance discussions:
- Base Salary in Dai instead of ETH
- DXD vesting contracts, particular for non-technical workers
- Confusion over how and when to submit worker proposals
- Congestion in the docket for REP holders (too many worker proposals)
- Gas efficiencies
There is already work being done to address some of these issues. Once the multi-call scheme is fully operational (and his schedule clears up), @nico can work on an integration with Gnosis Protocol so DXdao could convert some of its ETH to Dai using Mesa. @sky has wrote up a guide for non-technical workers to create a vesting contract to request DXD compensation, building on the work that @AugustoL outlined earlier.
We still do not have explicit standards for how long worker proposals should be or what is the proper order for compensation requests for work done.
I wanted to start this thread as a way to gather thoughts and feedback and what items to prioritize.
