All in all, I believe the retro-active funding campaign we led in December for the month of November worked pretty well! Thanks for everyone who participated, either by nominating someone or by voting.
Here are things we should improve:
- Participation. We got 7 “candidates”. I think that’s a good start, but I also believe a lot of people in the community could be more active and apply as candidates! 100 UDT is a significant “bounty” for anyone who is willing to contribute. Here are some simple ideas:
- create memes!
- get in touch with your favorite creators
- help the Unlock team be on podcasts
- help people on the lobby
- report bugs, issues
- re-share our work on social media
Increase the turnout. We only had 36 votes (out of the 4400+ token holders!). This is pretty low. It is the candidates jobs to get votes and if they get more, well they would get a bigger share of the UDT retro-active funding. No matter we will distribute 100UDT per month, so go get these votes!
Avoid “self nominations/votes”. It is pretty easy for someone to nominate themselves and vote for themselves, allowing them to easily grab a few fractions of UDT. This creates more work for the team while not really adding value to the community. Next month, we want to introduce a new rule: anyone who gets less than 1% of the votes would not get any UDT and the extra UDT (from all of the nominees with less than 1%) will be sent to the DAO. This should at least ensure that whoever receives tokens did get a few votes in their favor!
Any other lessons from you all?
