🏀 DAO Membership Proposals thread

  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.

I’m working at the MXC Foundation building a future data economy where DApps interact with IoT networks using LoRaWAN and I’d like to help improve standards for the community. I’m impressed open-source solutions like the new Gas Station Network (GSN) that’s trying to help improve the UX onboarding experience. I’m interested in building inter-chain bridges between DAOs and IoT networks. I’m interested in designing DAO governance and performance monitoring tools to incentivise IoT entrepreneurship.

  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)

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.

Hi!
I am applying to become a member of the MetaCartel DAO!

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

I am mostly working on a single project called Unlock: https://unlock-protocol.com/
We’re building a protocol for memberships.

  1. Why do you want to join MetaCartel DAO?

I believe in the need for better tools to fund interesting work in the Ethereum ecosystem and I think the MetaCartel DAO is a great place for this.

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

10 Eth.

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

I source products for our venture studio and help accelerate them to project status at 20|30. I am currently working with Open Relay to get our open-source dev tools in the hands of the ecosystem builders and I’ve previously worked on a tokenization platform (Token Factory) on the sell side and with Pillar Project. I am also advising a pre-seed/seed stage fund for blockchain projects which will help the best hackathon teams (and not only) continue to work on their ideas and take them to market.

  1. Why do you want to join MetaCartel DAO?

I want to get more involved in the ecosystem and identity faster those teams that are building incredible products but can’t get funding for whatever reasons. I can also help mentor those who need help on the business/strategy side and connect them with the right resources. Last of all, this community needs more estrogen.

Hi all, I’m Garrett. I’m working to make revenue-generating DAOs a thing that anyone can start. DAOs are the best model we have for collaborative funding of things that matter to people, and I’ll feel successful when I enable a ton more capital flow toward development and adoption of tools that make people freer.

So far in my Web3 Journey, I have:

  • Started the first tokenized mining operation (Cognitive Mining)
  • Built out a custom blockchain for energy markets (EnergyWeb)
  • Started a cryptoeconomics research group (Token Group)

Hello MetaCartel fam ~~

I’m Ross Campbell, and have written a short blurb introducing myself here :black_nib:

My focus is largely in the area of scripting together smart contracts and legal wrappers to handle corporate governance and deals, so I am excited to learn more about MetaCartel and the many projects that are being accelerated by its energy.

To get granular, I have so far:

  • Established (perhaps?) the first Limited Liability DAO, Open, ESQ LLC, building from my earlier research between Aragon and OpenLaw.

  • Established method for Tokenizing Contracts using Legal Script and Ethereum token “factory”

  • Established (perhaps?) first DAO-DAO legal transaction (Sale of Goods, ‘t-shirt’) // first cross-platform TX between Aragon <-> DAOstack organizations.

  • Contributed DAO legal services on behalf of OpenEsquire to form MetaWorks LLC in Colorado as a homestate LLC for Abridged / MetaCartel banking and other services that might require human agents to ‘cross the finish line’ for MetaCartel and similar opportunities, as well as MetaCartel Series LLC in Delaware to provide a umbrella “operating” organization to support quick deployments of limited liabilities DAOs that are incubated by MetaCartel membership.

& made a bunch of puns along the wei with other accouterments ~~~ codeslaw ya’ll

I would like to tip my hat for MetCartel membership and pledge 1 wETH from 0xb6A984f5a4a846F90863Bfec3a10b36Ece7a5C72 for 1 MetaCartel share to even more align and have skin the game, as it were. I have also signed a pledge recorded in the form of a digital covenant on Ethereum to not ragequit such share(s) for 2 years, as can be reviewed in this TX and the associated dcNumber, ‘5’:

  1. What have you worked on / how have you contributed to the Web 3.0 ecosystem?
    I have been involved in the Ethereum ecosystem for the past couple years. Most recently, I had been leading Partnerships and Platform Development for POA Network, where I was responsible for initiating, closing and supporting global partnerships, growth & strategic alliances, and growing the POA ecosystem and the tools we built (POA Core & xDai Chain, BlockScout, HoneyBadgerBFT, NiftyWallet, Token Bridge) within the Ethereum ecosystem leading to greater recognition and wider adoption. I was part of the working group that helped bring the creation of BuffiDai using Burner Wallet to ETHDenver in February 2019, leading to the biggest pop-up token economy we had seen to date. I continue to promote xDai Chain across blockchain and non-blockchain communities.
    My main interests in the space revolve around the growing DeFi ecosystem, anything NFT related, real use cases for token economies, DAOs and finding ways to get broader adoption of the things being built. I am also passionate about wallets and figuring out how to create and bring a crypto wallet to billions of people. I also want to help drive forward a community and product that uses token economics to save our home planet.

  2. Why do you want to join MetaCartel DAO?
    I would like to help contribute to the community that is forming and funding some of the most important pieces of growing the Ethereum ecosystem and actually solving solvable issues. I like how MetaCartel shows results almost immediately. I participate in a few other DAOs but it has been hard to see the impact of the DAO’s behavior.
