Ukrainian DAO was founded to strengthen the brand of Ukraine in the crypto environment and will become part of the global ecosystem of regional Harmony DAOs. Each day we can see more and more startups in the blockchain space, where Ukrainians are part of the teams as developers, designers, or even top managers.
Ukrainian software developers have been recognized among the 5th strongest IT professionals globally thanks to their solid technical expertise and are recognized as the top choice in various rankings, local IT specialists often win in competitions that concern programming or software development. This serves as evidence of Ukrainian programmers’ top performance and high expertise.
Our goal is to create a communicative and educational multi-way bridge between builders, artists, enthusiasts, and Harmony ecosystems. On the one hand, we’ll link experienced builders with best matching grant programs, share DAO’s network and advise on all stages of product development. On the other hand, newcomers will be guided to all sorts of information and educational material to dive deep into this blue ocean.
The backbone of the DAO will be its members. In the Ukrainian DAO, every member has the right to be visible, have their say, and contribute in any way they can. We are already working on a business model that in the future will allow us to operate as a decentralized, self-sustaining DAO, where everyone can take the credit for their contribution to the development of the organization.
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?
The main principle we followed, when we were organizing together, is to build a decentralized Council of Governors for our DAO that will consist of 6 main contributors and 3 representatives from the Ukrainian DAO community. All 6 main contributors are from Ukraine. We will elect only Ukrainian representatives from our DAO who have a passion to build the strong and growing Ukrainian crypto community.
Ukrainian DAO governors rotate on a 3-month basis organized by election on Snapshot.org. The re-election of governors will be voted by all Ukrainian DAO Community members.
The top 6 Governors will be retained and 3 Governors’ positions will be opened for election for the community members. The previous Governors can be re-elected.
We were inspired by the idea of holding such a procedure for Governors’ rotation/election taken from Harmony Philippines DAO. We think that in such a way we will save the main direction and idea of developing our Ukrainian DAO following our main mission and vision stated above in the proposal.
The initial Top 6 Governors are:
@Punchhero - Highly experienced community lead, who is leading a community growth in a unicorn web3 project on Solana blockchain, 1/9 governor of Initial Council of ONEruDAO, lead contributor, and co-founder of Ukrainian DAO.
@Steverogers - Fund Manager and Investment Associate at venture capital, ex-core team member of a2dao, DeFi degen, and NFT enthusiast.
@Harry_Bo - Aviation engineering background, in crypto since 2017. Participated in a lot of testnets and ambassador programs, providing competent technical feedback. Layer1 enthusiast.
@Yoel_Romero_1 - Active Harmony Community member and contributor, 1/9 Governor of Initial Council of ONEruDAO/, 1/9 Governor of Tower of Babel. Experienced Web Developer. Crypto Enthusiast.
@Ivan1 - QA lead in USA-based unicorn security-focused company. Bought his first bitcoin for 1000$ and since then started his path in crypto-trading. 1/9 governor Tower of Babel.
@inozemtsev- Business analyst in Ukrainian Tier 1 HighTech company, NFT enthusiast.
Ukrainian DAO 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 Ukrainian speaking community around Harmony and its ecosystem to implement objectives for a regional type of Harmony DAOs 4 as follows:
- Elect 3 Governors for open positions. We will use Governance - Harmony Community Forum for the filing of candidacy. The candidates will be able to post their proposals in our thread to describe themselves. All candidates who successfully submitted their candidacy through talk.harmony.one can campaign for themselves through social media.
Qualifications to become Governors:
- Governor should be a Ukrainian Citizen
- Fluent in Ukrainian and English
- One Thousand (1000) ONE in their designated wallet throughout their whole term as governor (can be staked in a validator)
Community members who hold 100 ONE on their Harmony wallet will be able to vote for candidacies on Snapshot.org.
- Set up one of the governance platforms for Ukrainian DAO such as Aragon, DAOhaus, or Coordinape;
- Set up a 5-of-9 Gnosis Safe 3 wallet after filling 3 Governors’ positions;
- Set up an organization with Governors’ email addresses to share documents.
- Set up Discord with roles, public/private 1 channels, with MEE6 anti-spam bots;
- Assign admin roles to elected Governors in the Telegram channel. Continue growing our community.
- Set up a News channel in Telegram for Harmony ecosystem updates in internal Ukrainian DAO updates and news.
- Use Twitter handles setup with teams delegated to governors via Tweetdeck;
- Start developing the Ukrainian DAO website
- Start preparing educational materials on Ukrainian based on the Harmony Documentation and organizing them using Web3 DAO tools such as mirror.xyz
To be sustainable is a huge challenge to any DAO now and we were thinking about how to make ourselves self-sufficient and more autonomous.
As the Ukrainian DAO, we’re definitely a Gateway to the vast Ukrainian-speaking community of users. As we are going to build a communicative and educational multi-way bridge between builders, artists, enthusiasts, and all kinds of ecosystems in crypto, we may bring new contributors to the Harmony ecosystem. This position puts our Ukrainian DAO at the top of the marketing funnel for any Launches, Ports, Partners, already running projects on Harmony in terms of providing marketing and BD.
We, the Ukrainian DAO, are open to cooperation with the projects and DAOs launched in a Harmony manner and ready to discuss how we can provide our services to the growing Ukrainian-speaking community of users, reaching marketing objectives and KPIs for projects.
