Hello fellow explorers
following up from outer space episode 4, I heard several voices for additional metrics, badges, journey celebrations and community building. For me right now these topics are deeply intertwined and this might change overtime as we travel along.
And while I came from a different angle I can hear a call for badges and/or value streams to be birthed. Here are some first thoughts I would like to bring to the conversation
What if token distribution doesn’t work on ‘project basis’ but tokens are allocated via different value streams and members/orgs within DAC who contribute to these value streams?
You will need to have certain badges to receive value from a stream, e.g. my friend Winnie in Kenya plants trees with students at their schools.
When we look at our multiple capitals below, Winnie contributed to all six capitals simply by planting trees with students at their schools. So she could receive badges for all six capitals.
By sharing stories to her fellow DAC SEEDizens she can receive contribution points that will count towards her token share of the moon cycle. Instead of the usual emoji we react to posts by using 6 emojis for the different capitals. Depending on which emojis SEEDizens choose, Winnie will receive X amount of Seeds into her wallet.
Maybe the badges could be value streams?
I believe that by rewarding participants through value streams instead of project based, the time spent preparing proposals and grant applications in SEEDS and in the real world could go to valuable contributions to heal Mother Earth and people.
I would like to propose to explore the multiple capitals first in order to define additional metrics, badges and maybe even value streams for DAC.
