Role Incentive Overview

Assuming a 13 week season

Season 4 Bounty Budget

The goal of bounties for Season 4 is to identify two to three meaningful projects that solve problems for the Analytics Guild or DAO overall each month and focus on incentivizing completion. We will focus on placing bounties in the reward range of 500-3000 BANK per bounty. We believe this bounty structure could provide more meaningful contributions and motivate non-active DAO members to contribute their time, skill, and effort. We also believe it will increase organic membership growth and will encourage those holding guest passes to contribute.

Any unused BANK at the end of the season will be rolled over into the next season or used at the discretion of the guild for remuneration or a Coordinape round.

In the case that certain roles do not receive sufficient applications, we will pay out for roles that do get applied for and pool unused funds into a Coordinape round to be distributed among active guild members

Season 4 KPIs

  • Number of New Members onboarded (levels & roles)
  • Number of Bounties created, claimed, submitted, and reviewed
  • Number of Knowledge Sessions (count of sessions);
  • Amount of BANK bountied towards Knowledges Sessions
  • Monitor and increase attendance in weekly sync calls . (nNNumber of POAPs distributed) for weekly sync calls
  • Monitor and increase participation in guild governance (Number of votes on guild governance proposals in guild governance)

Migrated to Season 4 Guild Proposals.

Thanks for the proposal - how many active members do you have in the analytics guild?

I’d say about 10-15 with 7 paid roles in Season 3.

The math seems off in that screenshot? 60 hours = 65k?

It’s a much higher ask per member than other guilds, with 9 paid roles for 10-15 people. Do you really need all these roles?

There seems to be some overlap; guild ambassador and guild spokesperson and community analyst all seem to have overlapping roles. Data engineer and software dev are interesting - what kind of infrastructure are you running apart from DAO Dash?
