A proposal for a more accessible and affordable DAO - introducing off-chain voting and delegated on-chain implementation via a Governance Committee.
Let’s improve our DAO’s engagement by lowering the barriers to participate:
Gas fees are a pain, so let’s move our voting system off-chain and create a governance committee that can carry out on-chain actions until more advanced technology is available.
The Governance Committee will be a community-voted committee of individuals who can collectively execute orders on the DAO. This power will let the Committee perform actions like transferring funds for grants.
Off-chain voting will be done through an instance of snapshot.org (an off-chain DAO) which will serve as the source of truth for our community polls.
Off-chain voting will be free. This will eliminate the on-going friction.
Our current voting power weight system will remain as-is: MANA & LANDs as the sources of voting power definition.
Proposal to improve other themes of the DAO, like documentation and overall UX.
Full proposed implementation here.
The Decentraland Foundation will develop the tooling needed for implementing off-chain voting (Snapshot implementation) and implementing a governance committee.
Keep the DAO as-is.
