We have reached MVP which is a rather simple implementation of discord private channels, custom roles and Carl-bot. We have to think very hard and deep right now to build a high quality product.
- Move first quest channels to Degen DMs.
- Establish a framework for members onboarding that is BUIDL to last, and implement.
- Salaried Social Media Presence
- Reach MVP for first quest landing site
- First Quests for the guilds that are ready
- Crypto mentors to do the heavy lifting for regular DAO mentor sessions
- Analytics to integrate
- Think about, spec out and complete the different onboarding experiences: metaverse, browser game, notion page, treasure hunt
- Complete game design and story boarding
- Translation to languages other than English
- Help desks
I have been mulling over this project for a while. I realised, this project actually is the heartbeat of the DAO. In season 1, we have been very narrow in our thinking. Now is the time we see the big picture.
Whether we say it or not, these are the values of a good DAO member.
Hence, our onboarding process will have to focus around these values. Especially initiative. Instructing people to do work is tiring, and this is not how the DAO works. Talent will find work themselves, create value and get paid, all by themselves.
Is anyone old enough to remember the punk rock period? If the thing you want does not exist, DIY!
If the ideal DAO work does not exist for you. DIY!
What the Bankless DAO is actually?
A melting pot? A bridge? A mess of people? A band of pirates? A richman’s club?
As you can see, the DAO is so diverse, as it serves as a crucible for all the cool things happening. Hence, the onboarding process must be as diverse, dynamic and fluid.
Ultimately, every sane and smart person on earth will eventually work for the Bankless DAO. Why not? It is the obvious place to be. Hence based on this assumption, the following master plan is borne based on the personal growth of the DAO member. This is the only most logical way to think of this process.
A couple of key points about this proposed DAO onboarding process is setting up of a triage system. The idea of a “triage” system is to allow us to better focus our resources.
We will use a form to quickly sort and filter people. We can copy this from Gitcoin DAO.
But on top of that, this form or the activities should have a way to quickly filter out people who has initiative and strongly align with the DAO. For example a hidden code somewhere if they have finished reading the notion pages or completed our browser game or completed a full online Bankless DAO MOOC.
People who are deemed to be of high value to the Bankless DAO will receive the red carpet, and be scheduled a one to one talk with one of us DAO mentors within 24 hours (P1). The second tiers will be within 7 days, and of course if they complete these tasks, they can be “uptriaged” and earn a fast track onboarding. And lastly, if they just want to hang out, we will schedule them to a batched monthly call.
Crypto DAO mentors will be core to the implementation of this plan, they should be a daily paid job for senior members of the DAO to “man” the fort, with a focus to welcoming people and coordination work in the DAO.
The 2 most required skills would be understanding of personal developmental stages and a wide overview of all the work streams in the DAO.
There will be a “train the trainer” session with all the crypto DAO mentors to make sure we are all on the same page and we all use the same “intake” form. The intake form is basically a psychological assessment, to see their suitability to work in the DAO.
For new joiners who still require work, they will be sent to the “barracks” where the education guild mentors will take care of their personal development with mentorship, book clubs and other educational programmes.
Lastly, we require another guild to help us manage the “lurkers”, people who we just cannot engage with all these means. (Or perhaps leave them alone?)
