Request for Funding: Empower The DAO - Project 1 #171
See the Guide for submitting a new Request for funding for further details on submitting a request
Request for Nest membership and funding (Empower The DAO - Project 1)
Team name: Empower The DAO.
Proof of concept: The Livepeer Aragon App which empowers an Aragon DAO to perform roles on Livepeer's Protocol.
Burn rate: the burn rate will vary throughout the project, due to varying resourcing levels dedicated to delivery. The phasing of the fees break down as per the schedule below:
Legal structure: Aragon DAO with address empowerthedao.aragonid.eth.
This project proposes to to build Minimum Viable Aragon Agent Applications to empower DAOs to interact with the protocols being developed by some other well-known Ethereum-based projects.
Once installed, the applications will appear in the App Selector, allowing users of that DAO to interact with the applications connecting to other protocols.
The project proposes to build these applications, which will be available for any Aragon DAO to install:
Also, the project will attempt to also deliver, however this is not guarantee, but will be done on a "best efforts" basis:
I would like to add that during my initial interactions with the communities of these other project, I have received only positive feedback and excitement about this project.
Here is some of the feedback:
From community members:
From Nikolaj Lollike (MakerDAO Integrations Team):
From Hayden Adams (Founder of Uniswap), and other community members:
From Nick Johnson (ENS Project Lead):
From Robert Leshner (Founder of Compound):
From Geoff H. (Compound Github Admin):
This is an awesome proposal, however we are short on funding for this given Nest budget. We were wondering if it'd be possible for you to cut down the proposal to 2-3 first app integrations in order to bring the funding down to $35K with a ANT30K reward. If those are successful we hope that the next Nest budget will be able to fund the entire proposal.
Thanks for your understanding.
Responding to the comment from @LouisGrx:
We have discussed within the team, and we have a proposal which fits within the constraints you have laid out.
First, it's important to state that a large part of the work plan included the build of a "template", which we would be re-used across all the 4 apps. It would be our recommendation to proceed with the creation of this template.
So for the budget you proposed, we would commit to delivering the "template", plus integrations with Uniswap and Compound.
This would provide the combined functionality to allow any DAO to
a) stabilise e.g. their ETH into DAI, using Uniswap, and then
We believe that this ought to be useful functionality for any DAO in these volatile markets.
We would also propose to deliver the ENS app if there is time, which we think there will be, but can't guarantee it. As such, I suggest we link part of the success reward to this, to account for this uncertainty.
We would then look to integrate with Maker DAO as part of a follow-on project, if you so desire.
So our proposal is:
Do you agree?
Thanks for your patience, It took some time for us to check that everything would fit within this Nest budget. Provided you can update the proposal content and roadmap to the terms proposed in your last comment, we are going to approve the Empower the DAO proposal.
Keep us posted for a final check!
