Proposal Name: Use Karma’s reputation system for DAO contributors
Abstract | Two or three sentences that summarize the proposal.
At Karma, we have built a reputation system for DAO contributors participating in governance. We would like the ApeCoin community to adopt it for their needs. That would mean:
We can help setup a website which ApeCoin can host on their subdomain to display contributor stats (ex: https://optimism.showkarma.xyz/). Some of the features are
Display high level voting summary
Display voting history from Snapshot/on-chain
Display delegate commitment message
Display delegate voting reason for each proposal
Delegate tokens right from the dashboard
Install discourse forum plugin that has the following features
Display governance stats of forum users (ex: see governance stats here “https://discuss.ens.domains/u/nick.eth/summary”
A custom form in the forum that delegates can use to post commitment message which gets posted in the forum and also displayed in the dashboard (bullet 1 above)
A custom form in the forum that delegates can use to post reasons for how they voted on each proposal which gets posted to form and also displayed in dashboard
Motivation | A statement on why the APE Community should implement the proposal.
To build a healthy and dynamic governance ecosystem, a DAO needs active contributors. It is in the best interest of the DAO to recognize the most active contributors, help token holders delegate to candidates that align with their beliefs, elect right delegates to various councils, potentially reward them and give them a way to showcase their contributions. Using Karma’s reputation system provides all these functionalities to ApeCoin DAO
Rationale | An explanation of how the proposal aligns with the APE Community’s mission and guiding values.
ApeCoin’s mission is to
serve as a decentralized protocol layer for community-led initiatives that drive culture forward into the metaverse. Having a reputation system will encourage members to lead various initiatives and contribute. By having visibility into the contributions, DAO can encourage the right kind of behavior from their community.
Steps to Implement | The steps to implement the proposal, including associated costs, manpower, and other resources for each step where applicable.
To get Karma implemented for ApeCoin DAO
- We would like to understand from the core team, what metrics the community cares about so we can track them. Example: Creating proposals on forum can be weighted differently to voting on proposals on snapshot. We can weight any proposals that start on forum and ends up on snapshot differently.
- We can help the forum admins install the plugin so any user who chooses to display their governance stats can do so.
- We can setup a dedicated website for ApeCoin without any effort from core team.
Timeline | Relevant timing details, including but not limited to start date, milestones, and completion dates.
We can get everything up and running in two weeks
$5,000 to cover dev cost for customizing dashboard, setup plugin and ongoing infrastructure and maintenance. We are also open to the option of doing all the work upfront and only if the community finds our product valuable, you can release the funds.
