Secret DAO: Community Governance

Hi everyone! :slightly_smiling_face:

We recently announced the launch of Secret DAO, a decentralized autonomous organization supporting the Enigma protocol and its overall ecosystem. Ultimately, the goal is to allocate funds effectively through collective decision-making processes.

Initially, our plan is to conduct an experiment using DAOstack’s Alchemy platform. New applicants will submit proposals to request reputation, then approved Secret DAO members can vote to determine winners of Enigma’s hackathon prizes at ETHDenver.

We might experiment with other DAO platforms as well. Feel free to make suggestions. Recently, I started a Collective Working Group about governance to discuss how relevant projects manage shared resources. My hope is that research could inform the development of Secret DAO. The primary concerns are sustaining quality participation and mitigating risks, e.g. sybil attacks.

Please reply here with any ideas for proposals. For example, we recently introduced an opportunity for members of the Enigma community to get published on the Collective Blog. Secret DAO could help us by deciding which posts are featured.

There will be a variety of ways for the community to get involved! As we learn from this experience together, common types of proposals may become generalized templates. We’re also excited to introduce multiple kinds of reputation. Our vision is for Secret DAO to evolve as people join and contribute. As a whole, Enigma is greater than the sum of its parts.

Let us know if you have questions. Your feedback is much appreciated!

Here is the link to Secret DAO’s interface on the Alchemy platform. Everyone is welcome to apply! Submit a proposal to request reputation, then members will vote on your application. This proposal template gives an idea of what we are expecting.

We’re looking forward to seeing what Secret DAO will accomplish at ETHDenver and beyond… Joining this weekend is worth 200 BuffiDAO XP. Overall, the intention is for us to learn and build together. The secret of this DAO is its people!
