Overall, the rationale makes sense and I'd be stoked if the DAO put our $RARE to good use. I'd recommend we view this as a pilot to explore participation levels. That said:
thomahawk69 1) since this is a new thing, staking 25 seems like a lot? Why not just the top 10 to start and only use 50% of the RARE tokens - so not to use all at once
I agree with this logic, and I think we should limit it to something like 5-10% of tokens. This is not a significant commitment relative to quantity of RARE we hold as a DAO, but it's a gentle way of testing this as a concept. I have no clue what participation levels may look like if we go through the jokerace method.
quimp Why not vote through Snapshot's rank order?
I agree with this and think it's a more embedded way of moving things forward rather than onboarding to Jokerace. I do however also understand the appeal of Jokerace, so not too picky here should we want to test this concept using their platform.
Carter There may be technical challenges in downloading a large number of artworks from SuperRare's shared smart contract. There are currently around 4000 artist who have minted around 40,000 artworks on the shared contract
I will ask SR for direct access to these via their private API. Hopefully it makes sense for them to help us out here.
Carter The goal was not to use VP to vote in this as its better of being used to train Botto.
I think while this may be important to some, participation is totally optional (agency in spending VPs however you like), and any VP expenditure throughout a Period technically would count towards active rewards. Perhaps something to keep in mind if we want to embed this process into the frontend in the future.
FWIW, I had a brief conversation with Agustin (lead developer) and this sounded like a relatively straightforward implementation. I am also mindful of developer time (VP delegation is actively being worked on atm) and I'm appreciative that this proposal is relatively hands off in terms of technical implementation, which is exactly what we'd want to look towards as a DAO when setting up pilots.
All things considered, great proposal!
