Harmony Philippines DAO

Name of DAO

Harmony Philippines

Proposal overview

The Philippines is still considered mostly a cash-based economy, plus the fact that it is a huge country that is composed of many islands, it is not easy to fully emerge Filipinos into cryptocurrency. To help bridge the gap between islands, technology, and cryptocurrency we aim to provide the knowledge and support here in the Philippines through community-driven programs.

Through talks, online and on-site events, social media reach, and meetups we will expand Harmony Ecosystem in the Philippines and eventually create long-term projects that will benefit the community. We hope to bring more people, create opportunities and investments and build long-term projects both in the public and private sectors.

Growth: Onboard users on missions and culture, pollinate values across communities.
Engagement: Amplify content of roadmap and milestones, creative campaigns of products and projects.
Diversity: Solicit voices and votes in forums, reinforce strong governance participation.

What Do We Aim To Do?
Harmony Philippines 4 Pillars

Education - To create awareness about Harmony Ecosystem, encourage new people, and attract and influence crypto investors we will do talks, events/seminars across the Philippines both online and on-site.

  • School Talks - A campus tour which our target audience is students and professors.
  • Meetups - Meetups with professionals and crypto enthusiasts, talks about Harmony Ecosystem, NTF Gaming and etc.
  • Hackathon - This is just one venue to start long-term projects that will provide tech opportunities, collaborations, and open investment opportunities both in the public and private sectors.

Social Media - Platforms for promotions, community interactions and support, and recruiting more followers and members.

Translation - To reach more Filipinos a translation of https://open.harmony.one/ to Filipino’s main native language, Tagalog will help more people to understand and explore more of the harmony one community, development, and ecosystem.

Technology - Our goal is to contribute to the Philippines’ financial sector and community using Harmony blockchain by developing blockchain Applications.

The Harmony Philippines will develop the following applications:

  1. Remittance Application/Gateway: In terms of getting/transferring money, Filipinos mostly rely on local remittance services. Those types are where a person personally goes to the remittance branch with their handheld money. But since the start of the pandemic, the government is pushing on cashless transactions, which opens more opportunities to a digital way of money transfer services. With lots of Filipinos working outside the Philippines, Overseas Filipino Workers need new ways to transfer their hard-earned cash safely to their loved ones in the Philippines. In 2021, an estimated 676 thousand Filipino workers were deployed overseas. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) said January to November remittances reached $31.59 billion in 2021 from $29.99 billion in the same period of 2020.Our goal is to develop and introduced a remittance application to Filipinos powered by HarmonyONE ,in partnership with SEC licensed providers.

  2. NFT for Filipino Artist - Philippines arts reflect a society with diverse cultural influences and traditions. Many Filipino artists are acknowledged globally for their talent and skills and we want to expand their reach by developing a platform powered by HarmonyOne, where artists can showcase their works and arts worldwide.

  3. NFT Gaming - Filipino gamers are one of the best gamers in the world, most of the gamers in the Philippines were able to compete on the international stage. Philippine has a large NFT Gaming Community and our goal is to develop a home-grown NFT gaming powered by HarmonyONE.

Why eagle?

The Philippine Eagle was named the national bird of the Philippines in 1995.

The bird is chosen as a national symbol as it represents the strength, uniqueness, a love for freedom, and power of the Filipino people. Losing them to extinction would mean losing a nation’s precious biological heritage.

Thank you for your time and interest! :rocket:


Thank you @frwrdslosh

Let us know if you need additional information, were happy to talk with you through call to explain our goals.

Best Regards,


Hello @laet4x

I would like to thank you for this incredibly detailed Regional DAO proposal. And if it’s alright, I would like to use it as an example for other Regional DAO’s. :blue_heart:

There’s only ONE thing missing in order to approve this DAO for funding. That is setting a date for a second election.

If the initial govs can set up the second election and have a fundamental understanding that the DAO treasury receives funding after certain milestones have been achieved then we can approve this Regional DAO for funding :slight_smile:

@lij @Sam @giv


Yes Sure @frwrdslosh

We’re happy that you choose our pattern as an example for other Regional DAOs.
I will discuss with my fellow governors our second election schedule and will post the schedule soon.

Best Regards

Hi @frwrdslosh,

Please check the election scheduled for Q2. We decided to make the next election next quarter.

Let me know if you have questions.

  1. Governor should be a Filipino Citizen
  2. Fluent in Filipino and English.
  3. One Thousand (1,000) ONES in their designated wallet throughout their whole term as governor (can be staked in a validator)

Election 1st Round: Election of the current governor for Top 6

  1. Re-election of governors and will be voted by Governors + Community.
  • Top 1 to Top 6 will be retained.
  • Top 7 to Top 9 will be opened for election.
  1. Top 7 to Top 9 positions will be opened for the community members. The previous governor can run for re-election.

Schedule for 1st round election:

May 20 to May 23: Registration (deadline UTC 23:59, May 23)

May 23 to May 30: Voting (deadline UTC 23:59, May 30)

Election 2nd Round: Election of 3 New Governor for the Top 7 to Top 9 position

  1. Filing of Candidacy — We will use Governance - Harmony Community Forum for filing of candidacy. We will create a thread where candidates can introduce and post about themselves and why the community should vote for them. If the interested candidate files after the deadline, s/he will not be considered anymore. All candidates who successfully submitted their candidacy through talk.harmony.one can campaign for themselves through social media.

    Schedule: June 17 to June 24: Snapshot voting period (deadline UTC 23:59, June 24)


Thank you for the detailed analysis of the election schedules, @laet4x :blue_heart:

I would love to dive in to this segment:

What constitutes a “Top 1 to Top 6” retention? I’m thinking it would be based on performance reviews? Coordinape Circle has a wonderful tool that could also help with these deterministic values.

In any regard, I would like to approve this DAO proposal.

@sam @giv @lij


We will have 2 elections:

1st election is for Top 1 to Top 6 and the reason is STABILITY

Here are some reasons:

  • We used the concept of how the Republic of the Philippines vote for senators, since we have 24 senators we replace the 12 senators each term.

  • We don’t replace all 9 governors immediately, instead we replace it slowly starting with 3. We can mentor the new governors and make sure that DAO and its projects will continue.

  • We will also be based on performance reviews (KPI) so that the governors that is not performing will be placed in Top7 to Top9 position. (Were thinking of audit and peer review of fellow governors, all governors will be a voter and decide who will be retained in Top 6)

2nd election is for Top 7 and Top 9 and this is open to everyone from the community and we will give the chance to others, but they need to meet a certain condition which are:

  • Governor should be a Filipino Citizen
  • Fluent in Filipino and English.
  • One Thousand (1,000) ONES in their designated wallet throughout their whole term as governor (can be staked in a validator)

Why do we put the qualifications?

  • We will make sure that only Filipino is the governor and will not takeover by others.

@frwrdslosh @Sam @giv @lij


I really enjoy the thought process that has gone into elections.

Thank you.


Have PHI DAO covered & answered everything you need? Thanks. @frwrdslosh

It’s a great idea to overlap the terms. This is what most companies do with their Board members.
