Restructuring DAOs For Fair Compensation Mechanisms, Reputation and Efficiency

  • Multi-sig signers are shifted from core-team members to expert community members who have proven their expertise through participation, something any community member can do.
  • As a community member, you have full teams ready to help get your proposal ready and passed. If you are opinionated on the vaults we support, throwing it on a forum or discord chat with no direct contact won’t get you far. Come straight to the yield farming team with your idea and get it to market faster.
  • Every department has an even say. We recognize our Ethereum and Polygon community trumps the early L1 communities we are trying to develop. By giving, for example, our Solana or Moonbeam instance its own leader and department, we can grow the ecosystem significantly quicker and let all ecosystems participate in a fair and distributed manner.
  • If you want to have a say in everything, you still can. This model is simply proposing a more modular approach to our DAO that improves efficiency. You can still see, govern, and participate in all decisions like any other DAO if you choose to.
  • Fair compensation for community members contributing to this DAO. If we were to launch using current governance mechanisms, it would be similar to launching a unicorn FinTech organization created and maintained by a bunch of Fiverr workers. In order to make this the largest treasury of assets in DeFi and incubate DeFi goliaths, we need employees. This model allows us as a community to discover talent, and properly incentivize those interested in working for our DAO.
  • Yield Farming SubDAO — You will manage and strategize on the vaults supported by Open DeFi (in order to fund our treasury with as many tokens as possible). You will also be responsible for emissions of our liquidity mining tranche.
  • Operations SubDAO — Any organization needs an operations team, you are a more business-centric individual that has knowledge on how to run and scale a company.
  • Venture Strategist SubDAO — You have an eye for the DeFi projects of tomorrow, this role is for those who can take tokens from our capital reserve and diversify them across the DeFi ecosystem in incubation opportunities.
  • Portfolio Management SubDAO — This SubDAO is tasked with growing our treasury even further, how will you manage our treasury and take the assets sitting idle in our treasury and capitalize on them.
  • Developer SubDAO — Help write smart contracts, integrations, and improvements to our protocol.
  • Partnerships SubDAO — Well connected individuals who are able to strategize and create the right partnerships for our DAO in the CeFi, DeFi, and TradFi industries.
  • R&D / Grants SubDAO — This role is for those who recognize our industry needs research in order to succeed. You can work with protocols and other community members to allocate funds in initiatives that benefit
  • Marketing SubDAO — A core-piece of any project in DeFi, the marketing SubDAO is responsible for organizing PR, announcements, and social media. How you choose to approach our marketing strategy is completely in your hands.
  • Financial SubDAO — Manage the finances, payroll, and budget of the Open DeFi SubDAOs, and organize sufficient allocations to each department in order for them to execute their improvements.
