[DAO: QmXHciy] Should the DAO Committee be compensated?

by 0xfe91c0c482e09600f2d1dbca10fd705bc6de60bc (Yemel#60bc)

Let’s recap some important proposals that required a DAO Committee’s hands-on intervention in order to enact them:

  1. Mar 2021 - Original proposal to migrate to a gas-less voting system.
  2. May 2021 - The new DAO launches and the first report is published .
  3. Jun 2021 - Activate Snapshot Delegation .
  4. Jul 2021 - Convert 1/5 of the Treasury to stablecoins .
  5. Sep 2021 - Reimbursement of gas fees to DAO Committee.
  6. Oct 2021 - Expanding the grants program for bigger tires .
  7. Nov 2021 - Join Blender Development Fund .
  8. Dec 2021 - Keep Polygon transactions for free .
  9. Jan 2022 - Resignation of Eric from the DAO Committee.

The main responsibilities of the DAO Committee are:

  • Moderate proposals in the governance platform (promote to enacted, passed, rejected)
  • Keep updated the list of POIs, BanNames and Catalysts.
  • Create and fund vesting contracts for paying grants.
  • Calculate and execute compensation for the Wearables Curation Committee.
  • Pay the DAO Facilitator a monthly compensation.
  • Use the DAO Treasury (release vesting, transfers to operational wallet, swap funds).
  • Reimburse gas fees to the DAO Committee.

Some other task related to the role are:

  • Attend monthly Town Halls and provide general community support.
  • Give feedback to proposals, evaluate risks and implementations pathways.
  • Contact external organizations in the name of the DAO.

So far we enacted 181 proposals, distributed as follow:

  • 81 POIs added
  • 50 grants paid
  • 39 polls were enacted
  • 10 names banned
  • 1 catalyst update

In the past year I have sent 414 transactions from my DAO Committee wallet in the name of the DAO. Thanks to the proposal of reimbursement of gas fees, this operation doesn’t have a monetary loss for the committee members. However, each of these transactions required attention to review/sign and those efforts are not being compensated in any form. I believe this is a problem for the long-term sustainable operation of the DAO.

Adding to this situation, one of the initial three committee members resigned early this year. It has been hard to find a replacement that can take such a responsibility and willing to do it for free.

I believe we need to start compensating the DAO Committee members and set the grounds for a sustainable DAO Committee. What do you think? I’m open to questions and feedback.

  • Compensate members of the DAO Committee
  • Keep this role voluntary
  • Invalid question/options

The DAO committee spend so much time supporting all aspects of the community and it’s surprising this is a volunteer role. Constantly doing an amazing job :pray:
