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 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!

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. 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.

  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.

  1. What have you worked on / how have you contributed to the Web 3.0 ecosystem?
  • I founded Axia Labs in 2017, a research & strategy company focused on cryptoeconomics, governance structures & industry best practices. Myself and the team have worked with over twenty clients over the past two years, helping thought leaders work towards a wide array of solutions.

  • Ecosystem growth & speaking in New Zealand & Australia, sitting as a committee member of the Blockchain Association of New Zealand for over 18 months; myself and Axia Labs have facilitated a number of events & spoken to institutions, startups & regulators about the web 3.0 ecosystem.

  • One of the things we aim for is to be an encyclopedia of dapps & tokens, spending a ridiculous amount of time playing with the majority of dapps, DAOs, defi products, NFT’s and tokens. This has led to a large variety of tokens & cryptokitties held and a significant amount of context about how the Web3 community interact with the ecosystem.

  1. Why do you want to join MetaCartel DAO?
  • The MetaCartel seems to be super aligned with the vision of Axia Labs, building towards a more useable, developed & interesting Ethereum landscape. With the experience we’ve built in cryptoeconomics & governance structures, there’s likely a heap of value to be added to the MetaCartel :slight_smile:

Hi! I’m Mariano from Maker (@nanexcool on Twitter)

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

I’ve worked at Maker for 3 years. I created the Maker Oracles that are used in most DeFi projects. Lately I’ve become more interested in DAOs and the ecosystem in general, am a member of MolochDAO.

  • Why do you want to join MetaCartel DAO?

I want to help Ethereum and its surrounding projects be the best. That’s why I want to participate in as many DAOs as I can. If not directly involved, at least by supporting them financially.

  • What is your pledge size? (min 10 ETH for individuals, min 50 ETH for organizations & max 100 ETH for all membership types)

10 ETH to start. Will try to make it more soon.

  • What else should we know about you?

I’ve never bought crypto in my life! Started getting paid in BTC 2014, ETH 2015, Dai 2017, so all I do is sell every now and again to pay bills. Didn’t become an active member of the community till a couple years ago, when I discovered hackathons and found that I love being a social person :slight_smile:

My address is 0xcd16CBdA54af2556EBB6df4FBFd178e63c33FD89

Greetings MetaGang, my name is Manuel (but I prefer Manu) and I’d love to join this beautiful initiative,

1. What have you worked on / how have you contributed to the Web 3.0 ecosystem?
Previously:
✦ Ran marketing teams for different startups (Jumia, Drinkz, JobPal, Medlanes) in various industries (e-commerce, travel, chatbots/machine learning, hr, e-health).
✦ Fundraised, recruited, marketed and launched for Brickblock.io a platform for tokenizing real estate securities with a European Framework.
✦ Helped Angel Investors and VCs with due diligence of different startups.

Currently:
✦ Founded VocadoVentures.com, a remote venture builder and accelerator that helps entrepreneurs with the ideation process, fundraise, recruiting, launch of the product and growth strategies.
✦ Co-founded KryptoPago an onramp platform that allows Venezuelan merchants to protect themselves against hyperinflation by using blockchain technology.
✦ Co-founded Decipher Media, a media company with the mission of bringing video content about blockchain to the masses. First, we are starting with a documentary called “The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth” and you can watch the unofficial trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKi96IvtrfY
✦ Working on a concept for a co-working and co-living space in Puerto Rico for digital nomads, the idea is to have a % of the rooms for free and that the paying members staying can vote and decide with a DAO who can come and live there.

2. Why do you want to join MetaCartel DAO?
I’ve been always organizing (collab groups, events, companies, volunteers, protests, parties & more) and the majority of them have had issues, due to the lack of consensus or simply, just poor incentive models.

I have been following the DAO space for a while, have seen its evolution and I have decided to apply to join the cartel as I believe my experience with the different products/business models, remote teams, marketing, fundraising and connecting people around the world, could bring value to the MetaCartel🌶.

3. What is your pledge size? (min 10 ETH for individuals, min 50 ETH for organizations & max 100 ETH for all membership types)
10 ETH

4. What else should we know about you?
I love to have deep conversations about economy, governance and philosophy.

Are you going to sneak selloutDAO into Metacartel?

1 Like

I have personally nothing against you but as a DAO member, the only protection against selloutDAO coming in is to block you I suppose. I applaud your self sacrifice to demonstrate to the world about the consequence of the betrayal (or if you get in, you successfully demonstrate another weak point of MolochDAO design and game theory). I just put my precious 1 share to vote against you but curious to see what other people would act (or more likely no one acts on anything).

This is a great learning experience for running my own DAO.

These are great points!

Truth is… I’m not sure yet. First version of SelloutDAO has come and gone (it was a one off), and it’s gonna take me some time to code a better second version.

Can’t promise I won’t do it!

I understand the hesitation. I don’t mean to be adversarial just for the sake of it.
