Preliminary discussion in order to write a governance proposal.
There are 666 Stake DAO nfts (3 batchs of 2 cards ; each card with 100 common copies, 10 rare copies and 1 unique copy => 111 copies per card). They have been used to award early adopters and loyal users of stake dao. They could be acquired by anyone that had earned enough points staking xSDT in the Palace, showing its commitment and its trust/belief in the DAO.
The first NFTS, Tempest/Pythia were giving access to a part of SDT inflation, this is still the case to date.
The second batch, Tamiel/Leviathan were giving access to exclusive arbitrage strategies which have been closed more than 1 year ago.
The third and last batch, Pondergiest/Stark have been released with promise of exclusive rights associated.
For a full understanding of the purpose of these nfts see this article from the DAO: Unlocking the full potential of DeFi with Stake DAO NFTs | by Stake DAO | Medium
For now, only the first batch of nfts still gives exclusive advantage. This is going to end if the following proposal passes: SDGP-31 : SDT Inflation update
It was corresponding to an average of 1200 sdt per NFT per year.
Beyond the fact that this innovation is a trademark of our DAO, it would be a new disappointment for loyal and committed users of stake dao and would de facto finish to destroy the value of these nfts. A very bad signal for the community and the rest of the crypto sphere.
A DAO is a brand which needs to bring trust to retain its current users and convince future ones. A large part of that is to stand by its commitments if it want to be successful overtime.
Goal of this discussion:
To brainstorm and propose some exclusive advantages for all of the 666 NFTs in order to write a governance proposal. Ideally this proposal should be voted before ending the 0.1 sdt inflation towards Tempest/Pythia.
Here are some ideas:
1- each NFT to be backed by real veSDT (perpetually locked) taken from DAO treasury/inflation (once and for all). I did not have the numbers accessible but something in the 5-6ks vesdt per NFT on average (4 M SDT perpetually locked) would be something interesting.
2- Limited sdt budget distributed weekly over time (same ideas as above but with real distribution) e.g. 4 M SDT over time.
3- each NFT to give access to some % the DAO revenue
4- each NFT to give access to a share of sdtoken hold by the DAO
5- each NFT to provide specific advantage such as max vesdt without locking them 4 years, early acess (e.g. 2 weeks in advance) to new strategies,…
6- Exclusive access to any airdrop to the DAO
8- To be completed…
I do like personally options 1/3/4 and I am not a big fan of option 7.
Any new ideas or comment is more than welcome . Do not hesitate !
I will then write a governance proposal based on the most supported ideas.
