SparkDAO-Governance & Moderation

Responsible for Discord, Telegram, Notion Wiki, Forum and Governance content & moderation; also responsible for organising meta-governance information flow and gathering DAO input on key votes.

DeFi projects should be more top-down & vision-driven versus asking your users/community about what they want. Because of the infinite composability, there are always literally too many ideas (most of them bad). The DAO needs to have a strong vision. If you don’t have a strong vision, you will just end up building incremental shit that doesn’t move the needle at all. @0xtuba

Planned projects: Gating xCVP?

Permissioning levels:

  • Core Team
  • Core Team+ Management Board = Council
  • Council+Team Leaders = Leadership
  • Leadership+Spark Team members + Ambassadors & Moderators = Inner Circle (telegram channel)
  • Inner Circle+xCVP Stakers > 1,000 = Iluminati
  • All other CVP>100 LPs and Power Universe Token Holders = Sparkies

Discord SparkTeam channels should be open to >100 xCVP Sparkies, since this allows DAO members with 'skin in the game' to volunteer for SparkTeam tasks, contribute useful information and aid recruiting. Each SparkTeam should also have its own Telegram Channel only for members of the Inner Circle. There should be Telegram Channels for Council, Group and also specific channels for discussions with partners.

Wiki - Notion

Notion is an awesome tool for DAO coordination...needs to be the hub for the DAO. Analytics and permission for defined sets of pages for SparkTeams (other than the SparkTeam pages like this one) need to be refined.

Website Development

The website should provide gated access to the analytics/tracking dashboards, flash polls, Forum and Governance platforms, based on xCVP in Wallets. Staking, NAV tracking, Forum & Governance links should all be visible on the same page:

Forum Platform Development: Flash polling support

Discourse is open source, so SparkDao can influence how it supports the PowerPool mission:

Examples of other Discourse Forums:

Governance Platform Development:

PowerPool has a relationship with BoardRoom that needs to be managed to ensure that the specific requirements of active asset management via a DAO will be supported. This includes meta-governance support via BoardRoom integrations (see below)

PowerPool will have to develop an appropriate technology platform to support the New Vision, ideally by contributing resources from the operating budget to extend open-source platforms in conjunction with other DAOs. DAO-managed fund/pool management tools like flash polling and forced ranking, as well as gas-free, incentivised voting will require extending/developing the platform to securely store, analyse and communicate all the data supporting both off-chain and on-chain community investment management via flash polling, sentiment-driven re-weighting and a rewards-based governance and participation process.

It may be necessary to revise the split between what is being done on-chain and off-chain, and contribute new functionalities to open-source governance packages like Discourse and Boardroom to support features like hidden voting and delayed reporting via confidential time-locked data structures.

Other Governance Platform Partners - Finance.Vote

Several ‘mini-DAO’ or ‘DAO L2’ platform support packages are potentially applicable to the ‘New Vision’ organisation of the PowerPool DAO, among them Orca Protocol and  SquadDAO

Finance.vote is a DAO developing much of the tooling necessary to address these problems. They are currently working with iTRUST to enable management of insurnce pools staking, but our requirments for wisdom of crowds management of Power Universe pools will be similar.  They are already conducting sentiment poll-based weighting adjustment trials on-chain. The Finance.vote whitepaper is worth reading.

As proof of concept, finance.vote has deployed quadratic voting-based, rolling consensus systems where members are incentivized to make predictions focussed on baskets of assets. This process is designed to facilitate the generation of market alpha and the discovery of up and coming tokens from the most viable projects.

Meta-governance Platform - Boardroom?

Many of the protocols whose tokens are likely to be on actively-managed shortlists will be using BoardRoom. SparkDAO should be engaging with Boardroom to determine a potential joint roadmap to supporting PowerPool's meta-governance mission.

The new Boardroom dashboard is a major improvement:
