2. DigixDAO Update
Since the last Dev Update, two projects have finished the participant voting round and are passing the required quorum and quota. Effectively, the proposers would be able to claim 25 and 1.25 ETHs respectively for their first milestones. This would mark the first release of funds from DigixDAO.
Progressing into more than half of Quarter 1, Digix has proposed 2 new projects on the DigixDAO Platforms:
- Project 1: DigixDAO Funding For Ongoing Bug Bounty Development On Gitcoin
- Project 2: DigixDAO Funding for CEZEX Exchange listing of DGX
Digix has also created a Special Project to modify some configurations of DigixDAO. Essentially, the project aims to reduce the duration for DigixDAO voting phases. Details can be found in the description here. In addition to the above, two new projects were proposed in DigixDAO.
Some updates to the DigixDAO governance platform made over the last two weeks:
- Internationalization to support both English and Chinese languages
2. Users can now view project details without requiring to being participants
3. Improved formatting on the UI, to help make comments and descriptions more readable
Furthermore, the Digix team is working on improving the user experience for the DigixDAO governance platform, and the below mentioned updates should be released soon:
- Color Coding and filtering to display projects based on actionable items, some of which are:
a) Whether a moderator can endorse the project or not
b) Whether a moderator/participant can vote on the project or not
c) Whether a proposer can claim funding for the project or not
2. Support variable gas limits for different types of transactions (this will help in the transaction being mined faster)
3. A few other UI improvements and bug fixes
