Call for Participation in ENS Grant DAO Discussion at the Upcoming ENS Workshop

As briefly mentioned in our financial report, we have been internally discussing how we can allocate some of the registration fees to pay it forward, with grants supporting the ENS ecosystem and beyond. As our ENS workshop is approaching, we would like to invite more grant-giving DAO experts to the discussion.

In the last workshop, Nylon from DxDAO presented how they utilise DAOStack to run their DAO, which you can watch in the following video.

In the upcoming workshop, we especially would like to discuss the following topics.

  • What are the pros/cons of the top-down consortium type approach (e.g., MolochDAO, where grant sponsors make decisions) or a bottom-up approach?
  • What are the good token distribution mechanism to the decision-makers (or are tokens even necessary?) and vote weighting (QF, 1 vote per 1 name holder, etc.)?
  • What is a good grantee recruiting and nomination process?
  • How do we increase participation while minimising malicious behaviours?
  • How do we measure the effectiveness of the grants, with the goal of supporting the ENS ecosystem?

If you would like to participate, please fill in the ENS workshop application form(if you have something you want to present, please contact Makoto on our discord channel).
