[Non-Constitutional]: Empowering Early Contributors: The community Arbiter Proposal 2.0

Hi, @cp0x Thank you for your communication. Your communication allows us to fully understand more solutions or methods for retroactive rewards for early contributors to Arbitrum DAO.

But arbiter no offense intended. We will make the following explanations and exchanges on the points you raised:

  1. Currently, there are two retroactive reward methods known to arbiter:
  • Various Grant programs through Arbitrum DAO
    For example: The Arbitrum Citizens Retrofunding Round #1

  • By initiating a proposal to Arbitrum DAO

ariter’s application for retroactive rewards in the form of a proposal was driven by communication with Arbitrum team members and suggestions from other Arbitrum DAO delegates. arbiter in the Arbitrum community is a collection of Moderators, OGs and Ambassadors.

From 2021 to 2023, the arbitrator has made outstanding contributions. Each arbiter is granted the Arbiter community role in the Arbitrum discord after being confirmed and recognized by the Arbitrum team. 25 arbiters are a whole. Applying for retroactive awards.

  1. What is Arbiter? Why did arbiter initiate this 2.0 proposal? As well as the retroactive reward quantity and Detailed Breakdown, etc., there are detailed explanations and arguments in the 2.0 proposal.

  2. arbiter fully agrees that other early contributors should also receive retroactive rewards. But the Arbitrum team has made it clear that arbiters have been deprecated. the role of Arbiter has been replaced by the Arbitrum team’s audit/customer support team, the Ambassador program.

Members of the Arbitrum Foundation also made it clear:the proposal in discussion is for a retroactive reward and not a future or ongoing one, so this fact wouldn’t be too valuable I don’t think. Proposal: Empowering Early Contributors: The community Arbiter Proposal - #61 by eli_defi

Arbiter spent a lot of energy and time in sorting out the 2.0 proposals. The 25 arbiters come from all over the world and have different environments and backgrounds. It was extremely difficult to get the arbiter together again.

From the current status quo, Arbiter no longer has the ability to establish an evaluation system or framework that can include all early contributors to Arbitrum.

In summary, the proposal’s retroactive membership scope is only the 25 arbiters recognized by Arbitrum team members. Does not include other early contributors.

We recommend other early Arbitrum contributors to pay attention to Arbitrum DAO’s more retroactive reward grant plans. You all can also initiate more proposals based on contribution category or contribution status.

For example: The Arbitrum Citizens Retrofunding Round. All early contributors can participate. Notion – The all-in-one workspace for your notes, tasks, wikis, and databases.
