Stop spending mana on anything other than improving the technical capabilities of the platform.
General consensus in the community appears to be that while we all believe in the future of the platform, it is not Ready Player One.
This proposal aims to freeze grant spending on anything other than platform grants to improve the technical abilities of DCL for the entirety of 2024 or until a proposal to reverse that is enacted.
By “platform grants to improve technical abilities of DCL,” this means no Platform grants to make art, builds, or anything that isn’t primarily technical in nature.
There is a great deal of concern in the dao around sustainability and effective use of resources. On top of that, we all agree that DCL needs to improve by an order of magnitude before it is going to be truly ready for mass adoption.
Removing the other categories will remove a great deal of the noise and stress within the DAO and allow the focus to return to building the platform.
Stop funding grants outside of the Platform category for all of 2024
Do not allow Platform grants that are primarily focused on creating art.
Do not allow the Platform grant to be used to fund private business enterprises.
It is in the best interest of the long-term health of Decentraland to focus on building a strong foundation. By focusing all of the Grant program energy on platform improvements we will be able to remove a lot of the noise, distraction, and bickering that currently plague the DAO.
