First of all, since DAOs are open, anyone can come into the DAO, as I did c. 15 months ago, and make their way through the DAO.
Some of our projects are rather more open than others, new folk need to be aware and understand that these are guild choices and not personal.
My focus is very much on onboarding, both people and new ideas, and I’ve written here on the subject for Bankless.
I’m also now working on quest based onboarding using Crew 3, we should note that, as often, we are building the aeroplane while flying it. I hope bDAO can evolve in short order.
Consensys here are being polite, and letting Bankless know this is an interest area for them.
The question is what will Bankless do in support.
Rejection makes no sense, because visions are quite aligned, folk exchanging dollars for Bank is good for valuation purposes, Web 3 often talks about a need to bridge to Web 2. Rejection would be the antithesis of Web 3 values, it’s quite out of the question.
I’m only scratching the surface here.
So in onboarding terms, we could say two things.
First, maybe we let Consensys work as any individual.
They would need to discover the anomalies of current onboarding, and there are historic reasons for asking for renewal for GP, but if Consensys buy straight into L1 that’s irrelevant anyway.
I think they could miss the fun of working with Coordinape, and of the effect that has on engaging folk with first principles governance.
The question would be what contribution they might want to make.
They might want to apply for role holder positions, probably standard voting will take care of that. But more importantly what support could they offer to role holders struggling for resources, time, energy, knowledge and so on?
Second, some support could easily be provided.
It would be very easy for DAOlationships to set up a support thread in their channel, at first, and then for Consensys folks to set up threads in their destination guild, that can easily fall into individual guild/project remit.
Overall, given the open nature of Web 3, I think bDAO should embrace this as a hybrid opportunity to trial a new situation, blending Web 3 enterprise with Web 2 support expertise, and understand the extent to which value delivered in each guild can benefit from the collaboration.
