Developer DAO Funding Request

@frwrdslosh @Sam @giv
We created our first funding report. We hope this is sufficient, otherwise don’t hesitate to contact us about any flaws!

You may download it here:

Just as feedback: It was quite the effort to put everything together and we are having a lot of this tracked in out gitbook: Harmony Developer DAO Mandates - Harmony Developer DAO
This is all new and in the making, but in the future, it would be good to have a clear template to plug-and-play the required informations or if we could even share our existing tools to minimize the bureaucratic workload for all participants.

Yours sincerely,
The Developer Dao

Update:
if we do not receive funding for our DAO treasury by the end of this month, we will not be able to pay our governors for the month of February and beyond; and we will likely see less involvement from governors moving forward until we can receive funding.

This would be unideal for many reasons, as it will slow the progress we’ve been making in the ecosystem but especially because next month we’re currently planning to begin a pilot program which will be onboarding developers from the Developer DAO (on Ethereum, via https://twitter.com/developer_dao ) to put some of their existing pool of developers (1200+ individuals) to work on harmony ecosystem projects which have been requesting developers from within our ecosystem (via @CryptoOneBabe + @StrongMindsHold + @ValidatorONE + @clayford and others ).

This pilot program would be one of the first direct opportunities for the Harmony Developer DAO to become a self funded operation in the near future.

If there is anything we could do to move the discussion forward around continuing to fund our DAO, that would greatly be appreciated.

Thank you!
Edd

Thank you for the update!

Thanks for writing this up Edd. Well said.

The bulk of initiatives we are working on in the Dev DAO are ways to become self sufficient. It would be a shame to be thwarted by running out of runway before we can finish putting them into place.

Can the DAO help to speed up the process?

Hello @harmony_dev_dao,

Thank you for your patience as the team has been working in Denver. As you know, funding decisions are not unilateral. The DAO Ops team was able to meet today and we are happy to conditionally approve this funding request! The condition is simply scheduling the second election. I know the previous one was around the beginning of January, but having a concrete date for the next term is always crucial. Please add that to the post. :slight_smile:

Also, thank you for a detailed funding report!

@lij @Sam @giv

@lij @Sam @giv @frwrdslosh

Current Governors are reviewing a few amendments for the upcoming election and then we’ll be making an official announcement for the upcoming SnapShot.org election.

Here is a preview:

Here is the official posts for our next election:

@frwrdslosh @lij @giv @Sam @stse @Jacksteroo

If there is anything we can do to secure funding for our DAO,
please let us know.

Our treasury is currently nearly empty now (<2k USD),
& our governors have not been able to be paid for the month of February.

There is a lot of valuable work we are planning for the month of March++.

Please fund our treasury as soon as possible. 

Thank you

Approved for funding. @lij

You mentioned creating 10 new bounties. can this support existing projects?
I need help!
If it helps you as well to meet your targets can one of those 10 be mine Harmony Pay - Stage 2 Integrations & growth - #22 by drspinosa - Funding Proposals - Harmony Community Forum

Will you be able to match my $10k available for development with possibly some funds and/or in kind to run a hackathon manage it (the hackathon bit i will still work with the devs ) and have 1-2 devs deliver the initial part of the project as described above.

Good work so far and thanks for your support to the Harmony community

We’re definitely excited about any possible Hackathon, would just need to create a proposal for if the DEV DAO should allocate funds for something like that; but personally, finding a theme and collaborating on that would be great! If you want to take the lead on that front, and make some kind of post about it, we can take it to a DEV DAO Snapshot vote about allocate funding for it.

HOWEVER, Our bounty program is focused on bugs, core functionality, examples and enhancements to the essential software stack used to keep Harmony fully operational:

We also define bounties, governors are not tasked with completing them; although it does happen, it’s as they can find time to do so.

Personally, I don’t think it would be within our mandates if we were to be helping define bounties for your project but I assume you were thinking we could complete them for you :pray:

There is currently a pilot program we’re running to try to place #EVM #Web3 devs into projects like yours and if you’re interested in joining that, as we continue to move it forward, please reach out on our Harmony DEV DAO Discord!

Hope that clears things up?

@Sam @lij any ETA on the DAO Funding payment?

Hi

Thanks for the reply and interest. I already placed an announcement on discord in the jobs sections I believe you have seen it.

I don’t have anything specific in my mind I just need help to move this forward and if it goes via a hackathon route to help me navigate the procedures.

I had a bit of interest from Devs but they think there is too much work or their skills don’t stretch to all aspects of what is required. I think task it will require 6 weeks intense work.

I will be suggesting (to the Harmony team) to concentrate only on one plug-in if that is possible and helps move forward.

I am thinking the following scenarios:

Scenario 1

Help me find 1-2 devs and match my $10K with another $10K. If latter is not possible just help me find a reliable dev that understands the project.

Scenario 2

The Dev is from the Dev DAO team and the 10K goes to the DAO treasury. Part time and going slower is fine as long as there is 1-2 days per week allocated on this task.
We can treat this as a pilot scheme where the DevDAO has a pool of devs that offer offer such services to get income for the DevDAO. I will definitely have more work on this project.

Hi Adam, sorry for the late response. I agree with @eddnorris, our task is more to fix bugs and improve the existing ecosystem (bug fixes, developer tools, app ports, bridges, …).
