Linked Draft Proposal
Establish a Formal Process for Adding/Removing DAO Committee Members
This is the last step in the process of selecting a new Committee Member, this proposal represents the postulation of Tobik as an elected member.
The DAO needs to appoint 1 new member to the DAO Committee in order to reach the initial setup of 2-of-3 signers.
The Open Call received 10 postulations, from which 2 decided to step down from the process. The DAO Committee interviewed the candidates and ranked them using a system based on Trust, Technical Knowledge, Timezone, and DAO Participation.
Tobik has been selected among the top 5 candidates. Find below an extract of Tobik’s public application:
What is your full name?
What is your primary wallet address?
0x664EAbE08871a7b7f13AdE88bc34605ed5EAEAE6 (main wallet)
0x1e09A216B70d46229F3FE86D3aD2e47ae01f7989 (for voting on the DAO)
Why are you applying?
There are many reasons, but I think this job is a perfect opportunity to complement it with what I already do which is documenting Decentraland at Unversed (https://unversed.org). In that sense, I always need to be updated on what’s going on, including the DAO. I already spend time here reading, voting and following proposals.
What is your history with both Decentraland and Decentraland’s DAO?
I joined Decentraland in 2021 and I was able to create one of the most popular YouTube channels focused on this platform. Not only I have onboarded multiple players, but also I’ve created multiple videos for companies and projects inside DCL (including The Decentraland Foundation, where I still collaborate). Today I’m focused on making the information accessible on Unversed, a wiki that I have created where multiple collaborators contribute by adding articles: https://unversed.org
In regards to the DAO, I have been participating for more than a year. I always found it an amazing phenomenon that represents a new way of doing politics on the internet. I really advocate for decentralization and I’m always learning how to contribute to it.
My first proposal was about developing a low-latency stream and while at that time it didn’t pass, now there is a project inspired by that.
I normally try to vote for projects that show creativity but also make sense for the platform. I’m not a big fan of Play2Earns (mostly when they are Ponzi / Pay2Win) and I prioritize tools that help creators create better content. I try to give feedback each time and I’m always 100% open to changing my mind.
What skills, qualifications, and experience will you bring to the committee?
I can create professional videos, see: (https://youtube.com/TobikCC) // (https://decentralfun.com)
I can do an analysis of what’s going on in Decentraland due to my knowledge of the community (We must solve this, so Decentraland will succeed | Unversed)
I’m able to create tutorials and didactic information.
Can you commit at least 5 hours per week to the DAO?
I already spend a lot of time in Decentraland, so yes.

The DAO Committee should be conformed of 3 members elected by the Community.
- Resignation of Eric to the DAO Committee .
- Formalization of the process for adding and removing members .
- Formalization of compensation for committee members .
- Open Call for new committee members .
The process is well specified in the governance proposal mentioned earlier. Here are some excerpts related to the final vote:
The process for adding a committee member includes three stages: the open application period, the committee interviews, and a final vote by ranked choice.
After the interview phase, the DAO Committee is responsible for creating a final proposal in the DAO listing their picks for the top 5 candidates.
If the DAO decides not to implement support for ranked choice voting,then separate proposals could be created for each individualcandidate selected by the DAO Committee after the interview stage.
Since Ranked Voting has not been implemented in the Governance dApp yet, the DAO Committee created 5 Governance Proposals, one per each candidate. By the end of the votation, the proposal that reaches the participation threshold and has the most positive voting power will be considered the winner.
Add a new member to the DAO Committee.
The Security Advisory Board and the current DAO Committee will grant privileges to the new member.
Over the past year, the DAO Committee has been proven essential for the regular operations of the DAO. Adding a new member should improve the security and decentralization of the DAO.
