1. Proposal Purpose:
I.) Reinforce and improve the ability for the DAO & SubDAO’s to engage and execute with greater efficiency, whilst maintaining a level of security and protections against potential centralization or manipulation. Evaluating multiple blockchain consensus models, and cross-referencing other popular DAO organizations, this proposal seeks to explore the opportunity within GRAPE to augment the organizational structure by implementing an intermediary level of limited delegated authority to a set of individuals selected based on willingness, merit and democratic process.
II.) A new role defined as an assembly or “Council” is defined as a dedicated set of individuals responsible for the management, maintenance, documentation, upkeep, tracking, assignment, and, transparency of DAO & SubDAO initiatives, proposals, or, tasks. Current state of the DAO &/or SubDAOs are a unique groups of individuals with equal authority and voting weight that must meet certain requirements to participate in proposals, voting and decisioning for the Root & Sub DAO’s. Example: DAO Members must be Class A “Gorilla” and maintain a Skill Role. SubDAO members must maintain a Skill Role associated with their respective skill/SubDAO.
2. Grape Proposal Overview:
I.) Overview: To further solidify the structure of governance, engagement and execution, this proposal suggest to establish a new role that would comprise a set of unique groups called “Councils”. Council members would be tasked with operational, documentation and status tracking of proposals, consensus and execution of initiatives with respective stakeholders responsible for various tasks & requirements.

Council members have the same voting rights as any DAO or SubDAO member, and, Council members are not permitted to supersede a DAO or SubDAO proposal that has not been appropriately voted upon or confirmed by DAO Council & DAO vote. [DAO and SubDAO members may also escalate to remove any Council member found to be violating their duties intentionally or unintentionally.]
III.) Organization: Councils are groups of a minimum of 2, but no more than 5 individuals. Currently, there are 1 root DAO and 6 subDAOs = 7 Groups with a maximum of 5 Council members each. Maximum number of collective Council Members to not exceed: 35
IV.) Process: To become a Council member, each DAO and each SubDAO must:
1.) Selection: Council Candidates must volunteer and make their intent known to the DAO or SubDAO.

5.) Communicate / Coordinate DAO or SubDAO Agenda & Focus
6.) Potential: For DAO council - Monitoring and Maintaining records of Community Treasury execution carried out by Dedicated Treasury Council, and, SubDAO Council - Monitor and Maintaining any emissions related tasks relative to Treasury, Role Additions/Removals, and, Docs/Execution.
VI.) Incentives: Open to alternative approaches, below is a suggestion:
1.) Incentive: Council members will be eligible to receive Monthly Emissions every EPOCH.
2.) Emissions per Council Member (Fixed to Start): 1,000 SubDAO / 2,000 DAO
3.) Maximum Total Monthly Emissions: 50,000
4.) Future State: Implement Dynamic Emissions Rewards Pool divided by Participants according to merit (Conceptual - not subject to vote at present)

A.) DAO and/or SubDAO member vote for Council Members to be added or removed from Council post by majority
B.) DAO & SubDAO will vote to confirm emissions for Council Members be attributed.
C.) Voting Requirements: To start, the majority implies a 51% or greater majority of all DAO or SubDAO member votes in favor of a particular decision. For every subsequent voting period, it is recommended that this threshold be increased to a 60% majority, by default.
4. Costs/Resource Requirements:
Maximum Total Monthly Emissions: 50,000 = 35 Council Members (30 SubDAO [1,000 GRAPE] & 5 DAO [2,000 GRAPE])
