If you’re looking to find out what grant programs have been selected to be funded by AIP-3, you are in the right place! All programs funded by the Plurality Labs proposal are listed and linked to below. Programs selected after 15.10.23 are in alignment with the strategic framework discovered during #GovMonth.
This post will serve as the canonical place where we will build out links to every program and project brief as they become available.
Thank ARB Incentives | Up to 350k ARB
ThankARB is the nervous system of the DAO. Starting with #GovMonth, a continuous pulsing of the DAO desires and preferences will empower action. More proposals will happen when the Delegates already know if the DAO supports the priority.
The continued pulsing will allow for the creation of segments based on expertise, participation levels, and demographics. It will also give delegates direct input as to the efficacy of grant programs.
- Jokerace is deployed on Arbitrum & bot submissions paid $2k in sequencer fees
- Defining and evaluating meaningful contribution pathways
- Establishing a DAO native process to align strategic priorities
- 100k ARB - #GovMonth (completed in September - recap on Oct 19th)
- 50k ARB - Mid-Season Pulse
- 50k ARB - End of Season Pulse
- 50k ARB - Delegate Activation
- 100k ARB - Grant Success Evaluation Incentives
This program is the brain. It is both discovery and optimization. Through a combination of direct grants, hackathons, and contests, this program will ensure that grant funding converts to value.
- 20k ARB - TrustaLabs Sybil Scan for #GovMonth
- Liquidity Incentive Monitoring & Reporting
- Gitcoin & Thank ARB sybil analysis
- Open Data Hackathon
- Grant Evaluation Scoring Schemas & Implementation
This program started as a need identified by the Plurality Labs team. Delegates want to see action, but no one is paid to get the fire started. Our first firestarter, T-Norm led the DAO to approving a $50 million liquidity incentive proposal. Each firestarter grant will provide support to contributors which drive initiatives which are aligned with the priorities of the DAO.
Firestarters To get us over the “cold-start” problem, drive new proposal creation, and leverage expertise when needed.
- Autonomous Management
- The system does not require managers
- Checks & Balances in Funding
- The firestarter doesn’t have one person or entity with power over them
- Hedgey Token Grants smart contract
- Using smart contracts to set an stream a grant over time
- Potential system for workstreams
- Liquidity Incentives
- Treasury & Sustainability
- Data Program Design
- Operational Efficiency
These funds are allocated to match matching pools on Gitcoin which choose to use Arbitrum for their round. The intention is to bring new users onto Arbitrum from the Gitcoin ecosystem and generate sequencer fees as a bonus.
- This program hasn’t run yet
- Democratic Matching Pool Allocation
- Using Quadratic Funding to source grants for another program
- First rounds deployed on Arbitrum
- Available for any Gitcoin round which runs on Arbitrum which meets conditions (TBD)
These rounds are intended to use Gitcoin’s Quadratic Funding mechanism to source and fund contributors. This includes both funding Arbitrum public goods and hackathons extending Gitcoin’s Allo, Grants Stack, and Passport to better suit Arbitrum’s specific needs.
- Questbook support round sourcing grants for their domains
- Domain allocation round as the first round used to allocate between matching pools
- Allo on Arbitrum hackathon to promote open data for grant evaluations
- First rounds deployed on Arbitrum!
- 100k ARB - Questbook Sourcing Rounds
- 100k ARB - Arbitrum Public Works (GG19 Featured Round)
