Celeste Swarm Funding Proposal
This proposal is to fund the Celeste Swarm DAO: https://aragon.1hive.org/#/celeste/. The 5 members of the DAO managing funds are seed group members that have been working on Celeste for some time. They will be the main benefactors of the funding although it is expected that external contributions will be made that are paid for in HNY and some may go to infrastructure costs.
Celeste is 1Hive’s fork of the Aragon Court/Protocol with some changes to integrate BrightID to impose a max stake per keeper (previously “juror”). Celeste is a subjective oracle and a core piece of infrastructure for enabling Disputable Aragon Apps. Initially within 1Hive it will incentivise votes and proposals to be challenged should they not adhere to the 1Hive Agreement/Covenant, earning the challenger a reward should they be agreed with. Beyond this it could be used for pollen member moderation, conviction voting payment escrow, determining the outcome of prediction markets plus yet to be dreamt possibilities.
Documentation for Celeste is sparse as it’s still in development but you can see:

More detailed description of how funds will be handled and used:
Rates for contributors vary from $30-$65/hour. The above HNY should see us through to the initial launch. Any funds remaining at this time will be used for future development or returned to the common pool. Payments will be made in HNY at the $ value at the time of the hours completed, once every 2 weeks. If the HNY price depreciates significantly or development takes longer than anticipated more funds may be requested. The above estimate has taken into account the main contributors individual estimates for completion of their part of the work plus some extra for unknowns.
@willjgriff $65/hour, estimate 20 days, 7 hours/day = $9100
@rperez89 $40/hour, estimate 20 days, 7 hours/day = $5600
@fabriv $40/hour, estimate 20 days, 7 hours/day = $5600
@fioreb $30/hour, estimate 30 hours = $900
@crisog $30/hour, estimate 5 days, 5 hours/day = $750
@Felix $30/hour, estimate 5 days, 5 hours/day = $750
@lkngtn undecided (potentially zero)
Total $22700 + @lkngtn undecided + potential infrastructure costs + unknown extra time
