Proposal overview

3 Mandates of the Harmony GermanDAO:

  • 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

Mission and vision

We are happy to announce that we built the GermanDAO and are proud to submit the following to officially establish the GermanDAO (a regional community DAO).

Germany, Switzerland and Austria with its German speaking community are lacking a structure, where they could come together as a community. We want to provide a platform to discuss and exchange knowledge, assisting people in need of help or just to come together and have a good time.

Unfortunately, the word of Harmony hasn’t spread as much in the German speaking regions as in other parts of the world and we are making it our purpose to change that through meet-ups, the above mentioned amazing helpful community platforms and more.

We already held a vote on the harmony community forum and voted for 9 Governors, which already began their work.

Course of Action

The GermanDAO takes on obligations and responsibilities to carry on different types of community activities to implement the Mandates.

As the community type of a DAO we will definitely focus on growing and diversifying the German speaking community around Harmony and its ecosystem to implement objectives for a regional type of Harmony DAOs 4 as follows:

  1. elect 9 governors (already done)
  2. set organisation email addresses, shared calendars
  3. set up Discord with roles, public/private 1 channels
  4. set up Telegram with admins assigned to governors;
  5. set up Twitter delegated to governors and starting to post
  6. setting up a Harmony forum 1 category to situate all discussions;

Sustainability

We at the GermanDAO will make it our goal to be self-sustained as fast as possible. Our vision is to be able to run different projects without any funding from Harmony or third parties. Even though sustainability is a very big challenge for any DAO, we are confident that we can reach that goal.

Great to the this German DAO proposal.

It will be fantastic to discuss future collaborations with the UKDAO.

I am particularly interest to hear and discuss ideas and projects that lead to self sustainability.

Well this might be the case for other cultures but in most German-speaking regions, crypto is at best associated with Bitcoin, at worst with money laundering. So we’re stacking low for now and hoping for the best

My understanding and I don’t live in Germany matches to what you say about German culture and crypto.
I’m confident Harmony will help you change that mindset and onboard more people.

Happy to be on board at the GermanDAO! Lets go!

To mention the Governor Voting has been passed on Snapshot as part of the formation progress of the German DAO

Your concern is noted. Thank you @NathanFarms

And thank you for sharing your opinion. This is what the talk forum is all about. Hashing out concerns in a public venue with an approach of genuine concern and respect for Harmony and the ecosystem.

Nice to see a proposal to help bootstrap a Harmony German DAO!

And congratulations to the elected signatories.

It looks like the only thing that’s missing from this proposal is the scheduled vote for the second term Signatories of the DAO treasury. Harmony recommends 3 month terms for signatories.

Hey @fgex87 and @frwrdslosh the voting on snapshot has included “Ihre Amtszeit dauert vom 18. März 2022 bis zum 17. Juni 2022” means the term is scheduled from march 18th till June 17th. Would mean by end of May call for new candidates.

Good evening/day to you @ben2k_Stakeridoo @frwrdslosh and harmonauts . In our governeur call today were the future plans for the GermanDao discussed.
The Plan:
-Call for new candidates starting at 30.5.2022 via Community forum, Telegram Group, Discord, Twitter
-The voting for the candidates is planned to begin at 6.6.
-Next term scheduled from June 20th 2022 to September 18th 2022

We kindly ask about the status of our DAO approval. Can we deliver anything to enhance the process?

Update on our goals:
-Our translations are soon to be finished
-The fellowship in social media is growing steadily. We have 229 Telegram and 84 Twitter Follower so our initial target is in reach.
-We started a GermanDao Blog
-The founding would offer new possibilities for recruitment and activities planned e.g. the meetups

Hey @fgex87 and the Harmony German DAO

The Harmony DAO Ops team has decided to decline this proposal without prejudice. Please visit our Q3 and Q4 Execution Plan for more information.

I apologize that this process has been lengthy and drawn-out and I appreciate yours and the DAOs patience. Harmony and the DAO Ops team wanted to exhaust every option before responding with a declination.

Do not let this dissuade you or your DAOs passion to build on Harmony. I’m looking forward to your success.

This thread will be closed.

Sad to see special since the German DAO and contributor like @Florian have translated https://de.harmony.one/ and @dcjanio wanted to organise an event during NFT Berlin. Also they started to bring out the ONEweekly in German. Sad to this move now
