The stewards of Gitcoin DAO play a vital role in driving the Gitcoin ecosystem forward through their work in governance and in workstreams. Previously there hasn’t been an easy way to gauge their level of engagement within the DAO. The Steward Report Cards aims to solve this problem by providing the most valuable metrics of each steward and improve the transparency and accountability of their work. The cards may function as a tool to assist delegators making informed decisions and to allow stewards to compare their involvement relative to their peers.
Public data of each stewards involvement in discourse, workstreams and governance participation are presented and combined to calculate an overall health-score. The titles on the card are clickable and will respectfully route the user to the data source with more info.
A quick walk through of the cards
Steward since: This is the date that the Steward introduced themselves on the governance forum. The earliest date is the launch of Gitcoin DAO, 25th of may 2021. Link goes to the Stewards introduction post on the forum.
Forum posts: The number of comments and threads started on the governance forum.
Link goes to the Stewards profile on the forum.
Voting weight: The percentage of governance tokens delegated to the Steward in relation to the total number of tokens.
Link goes to the stewards GitcoinDAO-profile on Tally.
Vote participation: This value displays the percentage of proposals Snapshot the Steward has participated in. Non-serious proposals on Snapshot are not taken into consideration. As of writing this post, participation in 20 out of 25 proposals are required to achieve a 100% score. On-chain voting on proposals via Tally are not displayed on the cards but are taken into consideration in the health-score calculation, more on this below.

Health: The metrics described above are combined into an overall health-score, displayed in the top right corner of the card. The current formula for calculating the health of a Steward is based on three sub-scores; Forum-score (S), Voting-score (V) and Workstream-score (W):
F = 1.75 * Posts/Weeks as Steward
(the maximum forum score is set to 1.5)
V = (2.2 * S + 1.5 * T) / 2
S = Snapshot participation
T = Tally participation
W = Lead stewards of a workstream equals 3 points, otherwise 2 points.
These are combined to achieve an over-all health-score:
- Health = F * V + W

[Delegate]: Link to the stewards GitcoinDAO-profile on Tally with an option to delegate GTC.
The search field at the top of the site allows the user to quickly find a specific steward or group of stewards. It is also possible to link to a specific card, or a group of cards, by utilizing the search function. As you search the URL-bar auto-updates with the shareable link. For example:
will display all stewards in the Public Goods Funding-workstream.
We are continuously working on improving the cards are looking forward to receive feedback!
