Hey @Amplify, thanks again for this, just popped back in for a re-read.

Request: is there any way to add “Greater Metaverse” to the Key Terms section? I have been giving our Mission Statement a bit of thought lately and was thinking of writing a post on it. Defining “Greater Metaverse” as opposed to the “Metaverse” in the abstract might help provide a bit of clarity.

Excited a lot about all of this, i think forming these autonomous WG will provide workforce foundation to the ApeCoin DAO & will act as a catalyst for the future of the org.

Wildly supportive of this proposal as drafted, my core ask for ‘next steps’ or ‘additional definition’ would be on compensation guidelines or criteria.

How do we reward core contributors? Can we shift toward a model with variable compensation based on performance?

I’m not sure we need to nail down specifics by role, but maybe relative ‘value / comp’ vs. one another and some key principles of contributor compensation.

I’d be happy to help here :slight_smile:

  • Working Group Leads: A Working Group Lead will be selected by the Stewards of each Working Group to serve as the primary point of contact for inter-DAO operations. Including, but not limited to meetings with the ApeCoin Special Council, the DAO Secretary, and other Working Groups.

Is the WGL the Foreman/ForeApe/program manager essentially? Perhaps the DAO secretary can be the WGL, lots of overlap.

Yes, Working Group Leads would essentially lead the working groups in terms of project management and keeping everyone on track. :slight_smile:

Love how this is progressing and provides a clear path to operationalization through focused workgroups. Looking forward to next steps and personally would love to help in the Metaverse Working Group… can see lots of opportunities to expand Apecoin as a currency of culture to further both the Apecoin and BAYC brand but allowing all ships to rise with it as part of a broader connected ecosystem :fist:

Regarding role compensation, I liked both of Gerry’s ideas re establishing the basics:

  1. Define several compensation bands by discussion and consensus ‘here’, and then put them to a wider community vote via either apcoin twitter or WG0 discord initially.
  2. Divide compensation (50/50 perhaps?) between a fair base salary in USD and the other part in APE. For me this adds a performance related element, without adding this separately and over complicating initially.

Look forward to further discussion. Also I believe Term 1 requires higher compensation than Term 2 possibly (just a thought), as undoubtedly many many extra hours will be expected and needed while we still in early development stages, so should get paid better to cover this inevitability.

What is certain is that a long way will have been covered since the establishment of the WG0.

Thank you for this clear proposal, which will undoubtedly move the ApeCoin DAO forward faster, while maintaining full transparency and decentralization.

There is a point that deserves to be addressed, it is the notion of contributor, which should already have been clarified following the establishment of Working Group Zero.

Please confirm if I’m not mistaken:
Each group will have 3 Stewards + contributors?

If yes, how many contributors?

If so, how will they be selected?

If so, will their work be compensated in the same way as the Stewards (not at the same level of course) ?

Waiting to read from you, please accept my most sincere congratulations for the work accomplished.

Thank you for your questions @dyorjdr,

Each group will have 3 stewards + contributors, yes. I cannot say how many contributors as I’m not sure and it will definitely depend on the group’s activities.

The Stewards can be thought of as executives responsible for hiring out for their own needs. So to answer how they will be selected, the Stewards will choose who specifically to “hire.”

That said, there will always be semi-passive and active bounties put up by working group stewards and the Thank Ape initiative that anyone in the DAO can complete to earn $APE on an ad-hoc basis.

We want to avoid creating strict rules around contributors because we recognize Working Group needs will vary, and we have a ton of talent in the community. We want to create an environment where anyone can contribute meaningfully and be compensated and recognized for those contributions.

Absolutely! We are working now on some graphics and explainers in addition to an FAQ for this AIP so it’s a lot easier to understand how an idea can evolve into a Workstream with a team and a budget, and also how community members can still be involved without having to be a Steward. :slight_smile:

Love the idea to include an FAQ with this… An awesome concept that would benefit a lot of projects going through the AIP process.

I also really appreciate the efforts you’re all making to get this in front of people on multiple platforms with the ability to not only ask questions, but be part of the conversation on how to dial this in.

Pulling for the squad on this one! Got my votes!!
