Questbook DDA Program Update Thread

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the highly-anticipated continuation of the Arbitrum Domain Delegated Allocation (DDA) Grant Program! :tada:

First and foremost, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the dedicated community members and delegates who have contributed their time and insights to review and provide valuable feedback on our proposal. Your input has been invaluable in shaping the next phase of this program.

With a budget of $4,000,000 spread across 4 domains over the next two quarters, we’re ready to dive back into funding projects that push the boundaries of innovation in the Arbitrum ecosystem. The overwhelming response and quality of proposals from the initial phase of the program have reinforced our belief in the potential of decentralized grant initiatives to drive meaningful progress.

Here are some key highlights and improvements for this iteration:

  • Increased budget allocation for each domain to ensure broader coverage and support for a diverse range of projects.
  • Raised soft cap to $50,000 to accommodate larger-scale proposals, with enhanced evaluation criteria and accountability measures.
  • Standardized communication channels and reporting templates to streamline interactions between domain allocators, proposers, and the wider community.
  • Implementation of fixed monthly compensation for Domain Allocators and the Program Manager to ensure fair compensation and optimize program efficiency.
  • Deadlines for approved projects where the funds can be clawed back and be used for other projects instead.

We’re committed to fostering an inclusive and transparent environment where all contributors have the opportunity to thrive. Whether you’re a seasoned developer, a budding entrepreneur, or simply passionate about the future of decentralized technology, we encourage you to apply to our grants program!
