Retroactive Funding, December 2022

:ballot_box: Vote here!

It is time to reward members of the Unlock community who you think created the most value in the last month for the protocol and its community!

You have 7 days until December 8th to submit yourself or anyone’s address. After that, all token holders will have 7 days to vote (using Snapshot’s gas-less voting) on these addresses. When you submit someone, please include their Discord handle.

Anyone who receives more than 1% of the quadratic votes will be receiving their share of the 100 UDT allocated.

Please share their Discord handle and addresses and why you think they deserve to be retro-actively funded for their involvement during the month of October. Examples and pointers to participation are encouraged in the “why.” Examples and pointers help others in the community understand the context for the nomination.

We also have the The Locksmith Leaderboard for November:

The Locksmith Leaderboard highlights active members of the Unlock Protocol community. Through participating via design, development, helping others in the community, sharing the Unlock Protocol story, and many other ways, Locksmiths are the core of Unlock Protocol and help propel the project forward.

The most visible places where Locksmiths engage with the project and each other are on Github (adding issues, submitting pull requests, creating projects that integrate Unlock), on Twitter (sharing and mentioning Unlock Protocol in their social media activities), and in the project Discord (responding to and answering question threads). The Leaderboard also attempts to capture longevity of participation in the community, as well as consistency of participation over time.

You can read more on The Locksmith Leaderboard page on Notion.

We hope the Locksmith Leaderboard can give you some visibility into the breadth and depth of individuals who are active in the Unlock Protocol community and provide some context as you are making your nominations for retroactive funding. Like everything, the Leaderboard and the retroactive funding process will evolve over time.

Looking forward to seeing your nominations!


Hey everyone! I’m slowly climbing my way up the leaderboard - from 16th to 3rd :smiley:

It’s been a big month for me. I’ve spent over a year building the Unlock Protocol integration for the Unity Game Engine, and this week I finally released version 2. This includes a ton of new features including native Unity UI for custom in-game web3 UI (purchasing/displaying locks, eth addresses, wallet connect etc.), borderless gaming, as well as the launch of a new micro-site featuring a full automated C# API docs, tutorials, demos and more here: Unlock Protocol for Unity | Unlock Protocol for Unity. Also had a call with Unlock to create a plan and roadmap for gaming on Unlock, with lots more cool stuff to come. Exciting times!


I nominate

Solomon Foskaay
desertrat | JournoDAO

For all the good things you all do for the community. Thanks :clap:

I want to remind everyone that jsec#6177 missed out last month due to an error when posting the nominations into Snapshot. When things go to vote this month, please consider that when you cast your votes.


I’d like to nominate 0xYee#3607 0xb2D11009ec2631f4f9f250f6463B7e1c23a93B93 for putting in the following pull requests.


I nominate Darkrhythms#2060 for supporting Unlock’s growth and partnership efforts. Darkrhythms#2060 proactively contacted no-code NFT creation and DAO tooling companies to introduce Protocol. This improves Protocol awareness and consideration and should result in an increase in key volume over the next 60-120 days.
