Note: This includes subgroups and supports moderation of the ENS Discord. The Discord moderation is a necessary DAO expense carried by the community working group.

2. Elected Steward Compensation

Provide compensation for the three elected Community Stewards @limes , @spencecoin and @coltron.eth for the entire Q1/Q2 steward term.

Description Compensation Months # Stewards # Total USDC
Base Compensation $1,000/month 5.5 3 16,500
Supplemental Compensation $2,000/month 5.5 - 11,000
Total 27,500

Note: Supplemental compensation shall be distributed to stewards and contributors involved in running operations for the WG. The supplemental compensation will be used in situations where contributors or stewards perform duties beyond what is normally expected. The steward council determines how the supplemental compensation will be split between the stewards based on the contributions of each steward.


Multiple parties will approve all funding disbursements using a multi-sig. This budget does not guarantee disbursement, specifically if services rendered to the DAO are incomplete or deemed unsatisfactory. If these situations arise, the working group will review them publicly at the weekly Community Steward Call.

Any funding not used will be re-allocated back to the treasury.

We could ping for this important decision, as as the vote on snapshot, some roles on the Discord, to bring awareness about this post.


I pinned the topic to the Community Channel and sent out another message on Discord just now. Unfortunately, pinging @delegates in the forum does not notify anyone currently due to forum settings. We are restricted to notifying <100 users in one post.
