Over the past few months the initial council have been building the foundations for the Harmony Protocol Community DAO.
- Now it is time to choose your Harmony Community DAO Governors
The Harmony Community DAO are tasked with the goals of representing, expanding and strengthening the Harmony community.
Any revenue from dedicated projects. Other initiatives — e.g. the advocacy program, community communication channels such as Reddit, Telegram and Discord, or subsidiary DAOs, will serve as additional dedicated tools to accomplish the remit of the Community DAO with transparency and engagement .
The Harmony Community DAO Mandates
- Growth : Onboard users on missions and culture, pollinate values across communities
- Engagement : Amplify content of roadmap and milestones, creative campaigns of products
- Diversity : Solicit voices and votes in forums, reinforce strong governance participation
The Community DAO is expected to interface and coordinate with other Harmony-centric DAOs as well as DAOs from other projects.
Self-dealing and violations of good faith and fair dealing will not be tolerated. Ultimately, this DAO represents an enfranchisement of the Harmony community to contribute to the direction and growth of the Harmony blockchain project.
The Community DAO is also tasked with exploring sustainable options to maintain the treasury in perpetuity.
General Harmony DAO Guidelines - Harmony has been encouraging other DAO’s to stand up and assume some of the responsibilities of the decentralized network. The council will need to continually work with other Harmony DAO’s and share best practices.
