Title: Migration to DAOpunks
Date: Dec 12, 2023
This proposal seeks to gauge the BanklessDAO community on whether they want to migrate over to DAOpunks, pending BanklessHQ response, either partially or in its entirety.
This is meant to provide the BanklessDAO community a viable alternative option to consider, pending whatever decision or agreement is made with BanklessHQ regarding the name brand of “Bankless”.
The Venn Diagram of Mission, Vision, and Values between DAOpunks and BanklessDAO overlaps substantively. As we are both, at its core, focusing our efforts on having humans onboarded into Web3, either because we want to them to free themselves from the corporate life of web2 (i.e. DAOpunks) or we want them to liberate themselves from the traditional financial system (i.e. BanklessDAO).
Determine what the BanklessDAO community wants to do after BanklessHQ’s response.
Determine if BanklessDAO community in its entirety wants to migrate over to DAOpunks.
Determine if various projects within BanklessDAO want to migrate over to DAOpunks, should the BanklessDAO community as a whole wants to remain or if the response allows for limited usage of the brand name.
Determine what BanklessHQ response is.
Determine what the community wants in response.
Determine if projects want to leave BanklessDAO or if there is a requirement for any projects to be vacated.
Should BanklessDAO want to proceed with the migration to DAOpunks, there will invariably be a cost to it as well as in-depth discussions on how we want to set up DAOpunks to accommodate BanklessDAO. DAOpunks currently has a proposal DpIP -3 that will allocate half of their treasury towards the migration (approximately $19.5k USD).
However, this money can be used to help onboard small groups that no longer can/want to operate under the BanklessDAO banner.
If the proposal is accepted, discussions between DAOpunks core contributors and BanklessDAO will be had to discuss the finer points of what the new structure will look like, discuss any legal requirements, and how to re-establish the community under DAOpunks.
