TLDR: Dework is great tool to bring transparency and organization regarding bounties for Grape. It’s free and web3 native.
As per today DAO Call (21th August 2022) and hearing about the partnership and proposal we as DAO to the SuperteamDAO about mostly creating bounty awareness to all old, new and upcoming bounties/task/ideas from the GrapeDAO, I have come to present here a solution or an alternative to what can become a solution to the Bounty Management.
This alternative/solution came from me (@legend) working with @potrok & @sher9n from Lighthouse while building their Discord structure and noticed the Lighthouse team used Dework for their team tasks.
After a deep-dive into Dework, I came to a conclusion that this is what GrapeDAO needs for a faster automation, easy management, award contributors and bring awareness. Below I will now explain what is Dework, what are the features, how can grape use this and what are the pros and cons.
Dework is platform for web3 teams to engage with internal & external contributors, pay contributors while boosting their reputation for work completed, discover how DAOs get work done and how to work with contributors.
It allows all kinds of projects to work openly or privately, and have contributors participate through tasks either by application, open submissions or gated claiming.
“Dework gives Web3 builders all the tools and talent necessary to help ambitious DAOs reach their full potential.”
- Anish Agnihotr, Paradigm researcher.
“I had no way of knowing how to contribute, recalling how when I first looked into joining some DAOs, I had few ways to reach members besides direct messages on Discord.
- Hamaili, DAO Contributor
“Currently DAOs don’t have a good way of showcasing their roadmap and saying, ‘This is what we’re building, So if you want to contribute, you’re forced to actively search and push, rather than be pulled in. By using Dework, it’s easier to pull people into the DAO, because you can show what needs to be done, and contributors can join, grab a task, and start to contribute—and get paid in crypto.”

The in-app Inbox provides a handy place to view updates about tasks you’re reviewing or contributing to across Dework.
Accepts most EVM chains but in our case supports Solana through Phantom wallet. (wen Solflare)
- Task Types & Assignee Gating
Task/Bounties can be assigned to single or multiple people via discord role, link or dework. Community members can also claim the task/bounty by the methods above.
- Task Views
By default a new project will come with 3 standard views: board, open tasks and community suggestions.
- Org Community Suggestions
As the name implies Community Suggestions are a great way to give a voice to your community and understand what their needs are.
- Project Roadmap
An easy way to communicate DAO’s plans to contributors. This makes it easy to be transparent about progress and keeping the roadmap up to date with DAO spaces & tasks.
- Hosting Contests & Hackathons (not yet released)
Below are some preview of the general features but there way more features which cannot fit here so a video to demonstrate for example the work of GrapeDAO on Dework will be below the picture previews.
Below is a video that I recorded on how GrapeDAO would work on bounties/task using Dework features.
From what is missing on the video is the payment of the bounty and also allowing users with this discord role to claim the bounty, but even missing from the video Dework supports this.
- Supports Solana.
- Can reward contributors/community members with $GRAPE or any SPL token.
- Discord Integration.
- Bounty Awareness around the web3 ecosystem.
- Automation of tasks.
- Friendly UI
- Making Batch Payments (Solana not supported yet)
- No multi-sig support (yet)
- Grants are only available for bigger Organizations (Solana, Tezos, Coinbase, OpenSea, etc…)
- No treasury
There is probably more pros and cons that I’m not seeing but I’m free to discuss.
I really think this should be an addition to the GrapeDAO to manage bounties/tasks/grants and I volunteer to manage the Dework space alongside the DAO and the Bounty Master if needed. Feel free to ask any questions or ideas.
Luckily through my research I found Solana Foundation uses Dework for their grants.
