February Payments for:

  • dOrg (Committed & Non-Committed Contributors)
  • CIDT - Hub
  • Kevin & Evan (Ops Contributors)
  • Juan (Data Project)
  • Cowrie LLC (Tax Consultant)
  • NeuralField (Dev Shop)

Note: dOrg’s logs include WRAP-IOU for non-committed contributors. At this time, I am looking into how to best reward non-committed contributors in WRAP-IOU. Once an appropriate method is agreed-upon, we could retroactively reward in WRAP-IOU, if needed.

Note 2: The DAO should aim to stop tracking hours. It has done this with committed contributors, but not yet with non-committed (Juan and a few dOrg members). For Feb, these contributors will be hourly, but going forward, they may submit project proposals with fixed monthly fees.

Note 3: Going forward, we shouldn’t need a discussion period for previously approved compensation frameworks and project proposals.

E) PWV Invoice Line Items

NeuraField’s proposal was for a month-long grant and submitted before our new structured template.
I can resubmit it starting from March using the new template. (I was gonna do it anyway near the end of the current proposal).
February compensation could be determined based on hours spent, which was 13. So, 13 * $160 = $2080.
Does that all sound good?

Thanks, Jure. I’ve updated to $2,080 for Feb 2022.

For March, here’s CIDT’s to use as an example: https://forum.polywrap.io/t/cidt-polyfolio-application/223.

It has the following sections:

  • Proposal Justification
  • Requested Grant
  • Roadmap
  • SP Team Roles & SP Cost
  • Velocity & Estimated Timeline
  • Sponsor Review

For the roadmap, I don’t think you should need to spec it out in so much detail. I’m thinking it could be a general overview of your roadmap, and a link to the Github project page.

Let me know if that works or if you have any questions!

I was 50% in February and became 100% at the beginning of March.

Updated amount in Feb, thanks.
