February Emissions - v0.69420

:goat: February Emissions :goat:

The goal of our monthly emissions is to distribute GRAPE in a wide and fair fashion. Our community runs on merit, so the bulk of our emissions are given as a result of “skilled activity” or “proof of social work”.

Any remaining emissions will be returned to the treasury

1.Membership emission:

Things needed:

  1. Number of class members in GRAPE discord

  2. Format to report emissions from each sub-dao is shown below
    Need 3 things
    1. Discord Name,
    2. Discord ID,
    3. Emission amount ($GRAPE)

(Please DM me if you have any questions or need help)

The NFT council emissions seam to be distributed equally although we have a tiered system. I have shared it with you and @Dim_Selk let me know if you want me to reshare it.

-By ‘Creative’ you mean Content SubDAO? Let’s please use uniform names in the SubDAOs as it can be misleading/hard to understand.

-Voice Actor has been absorbed by the Content SubDAO, no need for separate emission.(35 members)

-In Content SubDAO, we have 3x representatives (=Managers): Takisoul, @starflash, Yero.
-We also request emissions for the workgroup leaders (2 at the moment, Baruska(flyers) & Rafly(videos)

-Community Management SubDAO includes Moderators & Organizers so this needs to be better depicted (just a suggestion).
We have already decided on 5 representatives, the 3 of them being Takisoul, Legend, MlgEuphorino.
Soon to be decided for the remaining 2 (most likely stemming from moderators). (during tomorrow’s SubDAO call to be more precise).

Finally, what is “Socean Bongs”? lol


Some ideas id like to propose

-Add the partner server awards. The one we are doing with Sanctuary – is it covered in last month emissions or in this one? I will be starting that vote proposal today and hope we can come to a rapid conclusion on it. The partner server awards seem to be a great way for us to rapidly expand the talent pool

-The slush fund/petty cash should be added in here – some description of an amount that will be governed by the DAO board. This must be incorporated into the emission

-Id like to increase the gaming council to 200,000 or make a fund that Barndog governs for this next epoch. The allocation for Barndog I proposed could be directed into this. It doesnt necessarily need to be allocated to him specifically, but I believe he has earned our confidence to unilaterally allocate that amount as he sees fit

-Id like to still request a “surprise” emission that is connected to voting/using the dex and other things that are at the CORE of our mission. Seeing less than 3million grape voting on this most recent proposal shows we need to be allocating more to the people that are taking the actions we need. This could be any amount the dao board chooses and I would take responsibility in allocating it


I am hesitant to agree on the 500k for contests.
I understand the value in creating engagement via contests, though do we have any metrics for its benefits?
As cc we have to show our metrics, how many people came, how much we earned for grape this epoch etc.
Can anyone elaborate on how many new members or reach in the ecosystem these contests provide?
Perhaps the larger contests sure, but the twice or sometimes 3 times a week smaller contests?
IMO either a reduction in the amount of contests or reduce its payment.


Great points on this! @Takisoul @legend lets post metrics here for everyone

Thanks for updating.

“Are you saying Mods and Organizers should be one group, or that they have 3 ‘Admin’ personnel?”
Technically they belong to the same SubDAO so I guess yes.
They also currently have 3 ‘Admin’ soon to become 5.

Did the NFT council ever issue a sales list/report? I must have missed it

@easymoneyding @rustandmoth ?

I think @easymoneyding will be sending it to you just before DAO call tomorrow.

@easymoneyding let me know if there’s anything I can do. I can make a list of sales, it’s likely to overlap with your own though. I could select from bottom half of alphabetical list.


These are the metrics for February.

There are some metrics which are harder to implement, which consists in finding how many of these participants are new to community since Discord itself doesn’t track and mostly of these metrics are done manually and one by one.

I don’t see the issue of running multiple events/contests a week since it provides community members for one things they have benefit for. If this is due the amount of $GRAPE we are sending out every month then it’s understandable.

We as subDAO also noticed and planned talks to find a structure/strategy to lower down the rewards.

Keep in mind even if the DAO allocates 500k for contest’s or events the subDAO never reaches to spent it all since the reward of each event are tiered depending on the winner role (A,B,C).

From the February allocation only 67% was used.
