FAQs

If I pledge funds and apply for membership but don’t get accepted, do I get to keep my funds?
Yes, you keep it all.

How long does it take for me to become a member?
We have DAO meetings every Tuesday where we discuss every proposal that is put forward to the DAO. Shortly after, either your proposal will be submitted onchain or further due diligence is done. We’ll immediately be in touch with you after the meeting. So roughly 1-2 weeks to become a member.

soon…

  • What are the different motivations within the DAO to become a member?
  • What have you worked on / how have you contributed to the Web 3.0 ecosystem?

My background is in computer engineering UI/UX and project management. I built a number of startups in the mobile space over the past 12 years, all focused on consumer markets. My products have gained tractions of millions of subscribers and billions of page views.

I am a partner in a crypto fund that is fundamentally long on Ethereum, and we invest in products in the DeFi space.

I founded a developer accelerator program where I educate developers on the importance of building DeFi products on Ethereum, our first two products, a portfolio calculator for Uniswap and Compound can be found here.

I first mined BTC in 2011, and have been active in the space since 2016.

  • Why do you want to join MetaCartel DAO?

I firmly believe that in order for Ethereum to be successful, project founders must be educated on how to build compelling products for mass market adoption. My experience in product design, project management, UI/UX, onboarding funnels, Lean Startup methodology and data driven product iteration will add significant value to MetaCartel. I outlined the value proposition I feel can be expressed through MetaCartel in this document,

I am excited to work with the rest of the members of the DAO, and the projects we support to help grow Ethereum and crypto adoption as a whole.

  • What is your pledge size? (min 10 ETH, max 100 ETH)

10 ETH

  • What else should we know about you?

I was a professional magician, and a Shakespearean actor. I also love mushrooms.

Completed these steps already, and reached out to pet3rpan.

Looking forward to helping this amazing DAO reach its potential!

@madcapslaugh do you wanna chat a bit about your proposal? Can you ping me on Telegram? My handle is the same as it is here.

Cheers,

I am championing the membership proposal of Julien Bouteloup

Hi, my name is Amar Singh – I want to join MetaCartel!

1. What have you worked on / how have you contributed to the Web 3.0 ecosystem?

Now

  • work for Parity as a Rust developer; focus on governance and mechanism design in Substrate – work is open source

  • implementing Moloch on Substrate, sunshine

Previously

  • studied economics and cryptography at University of Virginia (UVA) before leaving in February to work for Parity on Substrate

  • taught undergraduate class, Introduction to Blockchain, and started the blockchain club at UVA

  • interned for Hyperledger and Blockmatics; volunteered for RadicalxChange

2. Why do you want to join MetaCartel DAO?

  • participate in DAO experiments, build a community

  • drive fund coordination experiments with DAOs

  • support team-building and product development for better governance over public goods

Over the next few years, I expect protocol layer improvements (increased scalability, easier upgradability, etc) to foster increasingly flexible and dynamic economic mechanisms at the application layer. I am optimistic that these applications will enable scaled coordination beyond the primitive group thresholds achieved by existing DAOs. With this in mind, I am very excited about using fund coordination DAOs to manage governance of public goods and mitigate the tragedy of commons, especially as it pertains to open source software.

  1. 10 ETH

  2. My twitter and github handle is 4meta5. Maybe one day I’ll share how I came up with it :stuck_out_tongue:

  1. What have you worked on / how have you contributed to the Web 3.0 ecosystem?

    • Been helping build out the Ethereum community for years
    • Launched EthHub earlier this year and also do Into the Ether podcast
    • Currently working with Gnosis to build products for the Ethereum ecosystem
  2. Why do you want to join MetaCartel DAO?

    • It’s vitally important that we find ways to make Ethereum sustainable into the future and one of the ways to do this is finding funding mechanisms. DAOs have proven to be great ways to coordinate the raising of capital. I’m also part of MolochDAO but the idea of DAOs with a more specific approach such as MetaCartel really fascinates me.
  3. What is your pledge size? (min 10 ETH, max 100 ETH)

    • 20 ETH
  4. What else should we know about you?

    • I was part of a team that tried to launch the first decentralized exchange on Ethereum. It failed to get off the ground but I learned a lot of good lessons from the process! The project is still on GitHub: EtherEx.

    • My twitter is here.

  5. Go through the steps of approving your WETH funds.

    • Approval tx is 0x62137d9c6561c18949ffa4c8fa40093824ae42c639d9e3cc945477960eba85ee

  1. What have you worked on / how have you contributed to the Web 3.0 ecosystem?

I apply in the name of Gnosis. We work on decentralized exchanges, prediction market systems, and wallets (safe.gnosis.io). Earlier this year we developed and released the dxDAO with the goal to maintain and govern dApps on Ethereum starting with the dutchX protocol.

  1. Why do you want to join MetaCartel DAO?

We are a big supporter of DAOs, which we believe will play a crucial role in the development and maintenance of the Ethereum ecosystem. Network effects are needed to make Ethereum succeed and these network effects are created by dApps. We need more experiments around dApps and we believe the MetaCartel DAO is a great place to incubate them.

  1. What is your pledge size? (min 10 ETH, max 100 ETH)

100 ETH

  1. What else should we know about you?

Gnosis as a project exists already for over 4 years.
We have some experience with grants, which we give out through our own GECO grant program.
