[Final] Season 10 Specification

SUMMARY

This is the finalized BanklessDAO Season 10 Specification.

Some Quick Reminders

  • Seasonal Specifications are not to handle funding requests. Any organizational unit requesting funding should go through the Seasonal Budget Request process and be reviewed by the Grants Committee.
  • Any changes to governance would need to be proposed with their own individual bDIPs (bDIP Template here).

The Seasonal Specifications are simply general operational specifications that allow organizational units to plan for the following season. While the Operations Department will manage the specifications we want as much input from DAO Members as possible so as to make decisions that align with members.

Operational/Governance Changes

These changes have been proposed and have independently passed a vote on the Forum and Snapshot during the current season. The vote on this Seasonal Specification will not impact the results of these previously-passed proposals.

  • Seasonal Meta-governance delegation to DAOStewards.eth
    • Snapshot
    • DAOStewards was renewed as the official meta-governance group of BanklessDAO for Season 9, enabling the BanklessDAO Vault Multisig to delegate eligible governance tokens to DAOStewards upon request. DAOStewards will report back to the DAO at the end of each season and propose to renew the delegation.
  • Tokenomics - Approve DAI Capital Efficiency Strategy
    • Snapshot
    • Idle BanklessDAO Vault DAI was deposited into the DAO’s Rari Fuse pool to earn 6.53% APY.
