Hi all,

I’m one of the team members at the Gitcoin core development company, Kevin Owocki.

I was wondering what questions the community has for us. Feel free to AMA.

Hi @owocki,

Do you have any experience personally or of witnessing others propose to an incumbent organisation that they should become a DAO?

i do not; but in a way this is similar to whats happening with gitcoin growing gitcoindao now.

Hey @owocki , ccho :wink:

great job with the launch, it just might be the most egalitarian and transparent launch of any DAO to date, congrats to you and the team

curious about your vision for gitcoindao… more specifically what might the future look like for less experienced (not quite steward level) contributors? working groups? forum discussions and proposals? I’m sure there are a lot of people wanting to pitch in down the road

cheers,

Thanks for your reply @owocki. It will be interesting to see what gitcoindao inspires.

hi @zkwaffles thanks for stopping by.

curious about your vision for gitcoindao…

basically the idea is for gitcoindao to be a schelling point for the hopeful; for those who want to build a vessel that can go to the quadratic lands - the promised land of digital democracy and public goods being funded.

tangibly that means creating a DAO of DAOs - a generator function (a function that generates other functions) that generates projects/DAOs/companies that fund public goods.

this is of course new framing of what we’ve been doing for a very long time => gitcoin.co/results . coordinating builders & funders to build/fund the open web.

more specifically what might the future look like for less experienced (not quite steward level) contributors? working groups? forum discussions and proposals? I’m sure there are a lot of people wanting to pitch in down the road
the workstreams that i’ve seen proposed from the community

all have different proposals about what types of community members should get involved, so id probably start there to learn about how you can get involved

also if u come hang out on the community call tomorrow we can just chill + see what ideas come up there https://twitter.com/gitcoin/status/1397977519895236617

Congrats on what you are doing @owocki. In the long term, what do you think the funding sources for incentivizing Open source development can be?

How about some sort of an alumi-donations from projects that get funded by Gitcoin DAO and gain success. Maybe some kind of voluntary equity model from those founders?? (Sorry if this sound more like an idea wrapped in a question, LOL)
