Expanding into new markets Latin market is a good idea that I’d support with my time, from the top of my head the grants lifecycle could look something like below.
These are thoughts so feel free to dissect them, enabling the community to drive change is something we could certainly do better.
Define Purpose and Signaling (Post in #discussion)
“Issue A is an issue I experience that I’d like to solve, do you feel this way too?” (This post)
Ideation and rough plan (Telegram, Discord, Here, Pigeon…)
“These are examples of where else Issue A has occurred and how it was solved. To solve our problem we can adopt X, drop Y and add Z.”
“Do you have any other ideas? Do you have any skills that can help solve our problem?”
Collaboration and Request for Grant (Post in the #proposals category)
“We think the easiest way we can solve Issue A is by doing 1, 2 and 3 to achieve A, B and C.”
“By achieving A, B and C we think we can solve Issue A.”
“@ChamanRa will do B, @freshaspect can do C and @Fred will try A but it’s his first time.”
“On our own we think we can do this in 2 weeks but with more help it would be quicker, comment here if you want to join the working group and can help with that”
If completed in 2 weeks and the delivered solution is accepted by the DAO we would request a bounty of ‘x’ SDT for solving Issue A, would you DAO support this?"
Signal Vote: Do you support Grant Request #1 as specified?
Y (94%) | N (6%)
- Delivery and Review
A, B and C were delivered and the DAO must now decide if the implementation solved Issue A.
Signal Vote: Should A, B and C be implemented?
Y (87%) | N (13%)
A, B and C are implemented, the DAO awards the bounty ‘x’ SDT to the working group.
There are some suggestions the solution could still be further developed, another request for grant can be made to iterate on A, B and C.
