Thank ARB Weekly Governance Updates

April 26th Thank ARB Weekly Governance Update

Hi, this is Kat, the Thank ARB Grants Manager :wave:t2: With the help of @DisruptionJoe and @BenWest from the Thank ARB Team I will be posting weekly governance updates to give the community some insight into what we’ve been working on and what’s coming up.

On April 23, the Delegate Workshop on Ecosystem Goals took place instead of a board meeting.

The Thank ARB Oversight Board meets weekly with the Thank ARB team. In the last meeting on April 16, we discussed the Request for Programs Launch, gave a status update on M1b deliverables using the scorecard, and addressed general requests for help.

Before jumping into the meeting, Rebecca and Katharina, who both joined the team in April as Grants Architect and Grants Manager, respectively, introduced themselves.

We launched the Request for Proposals for Milestone 1b :tada:

Here’s the tl;dr:

  • Funding: Approximately 3 million ARB available for distribution between 5-10 programs.
  • Scalability: Think about how you can demonstrate scalability and “one dollar in, two dollars out” strategy when crafting your proposals.
  • Timeline: Applications closed April 30, decisions made in mid-May by a decentralized group of reviewers, programs roll out between June and September.

Read the forum post!

The scorecard is how we keep track of the Thank ARB deliverables. We’re still working on refining the format to suit us best going forward.

:eyes:View the scorecard for more details.

Our main request for help was to share the link to the RFP launch forum post. Applications have now closed.

Cheers and talk to you next week,

Kat

Additionally, the line stating that we will have a decentralized review of the applications meant to say that we would have a group of people from the ecosystem outside of us reviewing and sharing opinions, but the decisions would ultimately be made by our team. Likely, they would be in line, but there could be cases where the application looks great to surface observation and we find deep flaws or conflicts. As the accountable party, we would like to move towards full decentralization, but we aren’t quite there yet!
