Proposal to create an ENS DAO Monthly NFT Giveaway, built by Ether Cards

I like these suggestions but there might be bit of an issue if there is no snapshot or on-chain vote in a given month.

That’s fine, although the newsletter is run by TNL rather than the DAO. Setting a twitter handle also seems like a fine idea.

I believe Ether Cards will be setting up a claim site to avoid having to pay excessive gas fees. Unclaimed tokens will also be redistributed to Ether Cards holders after a month.

Good point; in that case I suppose we would look to the previous month.

Three points:

  1. Qualification 2 should start the date when the raffle commences, since people have not had notice of the benefits of voting, in the past.

  2. People could be penalized, if their delagatee misses a vote.

  3. Don’t we want to reward active DAO participation, which is more than just voting. Let’s make greater use of the Badge system, especially actively being involved in discussions, in addition to voting and participating in workgroups. A person should not need to do all but it should reflect a healthy participation in the DAO.

THIS! I missed the second on-chain vote since I was away for a while although I did vote on all the snapshots. Sir this criteria is too strict imho :smiling_face_with_tear:

I agree. Badge system exists for some signalling purpose; perhaps it could be leveraged :disguised_face:

Even better, since it means people were acting honestly, not out of desire for a reward.

The risk with this is that it will encourage many low-quality contributions in order to qualify.

But we want to encourage people going forward. Some people may not have voted, because it was expected the vote would be overwhelming in favor of a particular position or the person did not inquire how to vote.

I agree, but not if we differentiate between meaningful participation in work groups or meaningful badges limited to certain Community, Posting, and Trust Level badges while encouraging but not crediting low-participation badges.

That’s very difficult to do. “When a metric becomes a target, it ceases to be a good metric.”

I’ve just announced this publicly with a teaser tweet: https://twitter.com/nicksdjohnson/status/1503896561293860864

Per discussion with the Community WG, the first one will be raffled off randomly to 144 people who signed the constitution and have a ‘com.twitter’ or ‘email’ record set on their ENS name. We’re taking a snapshot in 24h, so if you signed the constitution but don’t have either record set, now is the time to do so!

Lucky @AvsA and @brantlymillegan … I’m definitely not extremely jealous… :laughing:

Yay, thank you! Do I have to do anything or will it simply be sent to my wallet?

There’ll be a month from the 20th to claim it - we’ll send all the winners instructions post-launch.

Yes, I am asking this because I want one :laughing: but what happens to any that are not claimed? Are they just lost?

This is now live: Equinox Collection

Any unclaimed after the 20th of April go to Ether Cards holders.

I want one too - so I’ve put up a collection offer for 0.5 ETH on LooksRare!

Guess I have some saving to do to match that. :laughing:
Maybe if one of my rare Parallel Alphas sells.

Congrats on your purchase! I’ve definitely been watching the price action. :laughing:

Oh nice! I wasn’t sure anyone would actually sell me one for that much.

We definitely need better eligibility criteria for month 2 (due April 20); the fact that people didn’t explicitly sign up for this drop means they largely weren’t expecting to be contacted; I got a lot of suspicious replies to my Twitter notifications (and fair enough too), and I suspect a lot of people haven’t seen them. I know at least one person muted me assuming I was a spammer!

So far about 1/3 of the NFTs have been claimed.

I think that for future months, being added to the raffle should require at least some manual action on the part of the person entering will be essential.

Maybe not an explicit opt-in, but if there is a way to see if someone has been actively involved in DAO discussions/contributions recently. Maybe say last 30 days since it is a monthly release.

Is there one for June?
