Purpose & Prelude: The purpose of this proposal is to ratify what constitutes a contributor as a Genesis member.
As this is a first draft the expectation is to collect feedback to ensure we’re setting things up correctly from the start with the proper buy-in from our valued contributors.
Please do not get caught up in the semantics and naming, should you find it offensive please keep in mind it’s a WIP and we can rename things once we’re on the same page.
The intention behind it is to establish the guardrails and framework in a transparent manner.
No definition around how to qualify for Genesis
No clear role expectations or guidelines
Through genesis some members have sacrificed more than others by not being compensated.
Coordinape doesn’t accurately send value where it’s been earned
We should have at least 2 separate tiers of genesis retribution. The first tier should honor those who have made the greatest sacrifices and operated at the highest capacity to get us launched. Some notable members include: Gruad, Arcology, Zeryx, Maria, Senad, Lion.
The second tier should have less weight while still acknowledging the fact that other contributors made valuable efforts as well. These include teams with different labor skillsets including: marketing, community management. This tier would also include the author of this post, Viking, who has been playing more of a supporting role and adding minimal value to the actual big brain activities of the DAO setup outside of editing.
We could, alternatively choose to build a 3rd tier for general community as a way to attempt to incentive them to be more involved, however, airdrops historically get dumped and attract the wrong crowd, it’s not a plausible marketing angle or value add in Coach opinion.
Tier 1 to get 60% of the total genesis allocation.
- Primarily involved in the governance set up of the DAO (whitepaper, legal structures, governance and operations type chats) (dedicating 75% of their time or more)
- Not collecting compensation from other teams (excluding referrals, bonuses don’t disqualify people)
- Has contributed to writing at least 1 section of the whitepaper
- Has contributed to writing at least 1 section of governance documentation
Tier 2 to get 40% of the total genesis allocation
Consistently completing team bounties in the last 3 months (active contributor)
