Quests swarm funding proposal
This proposal is to fund the Quests Swarm DAO: https://aragon.1hive.org/#/quests/. The 5 members of the DAO managing funds are all the members working on Quests. For the moment, they will be the only one managing the funds for the MVP. Once the MVP is released, other members that would like to join the DAO will be able to.
Honey quests will be a way to create tasks, fund them with honey from the DAO, and allow one or more people to complete them. This will offer many advantages such as:
- Providing an opportunity for developers to get in touch with IT promoters.
- Help promote blockchain technology and cryptocurrency all around the IT community.
- Create a link between promoters (Creators) and developers (Players)
- Providing an easier way to get in contact with experts specialized in advanced IT fields.
- Easy and user-friendly rewarding system based on honey from the DAO.
The documentation for honey quests is still in progress, you can follow all our advancements and new features on:
- Contracts - GitHub: https://github.com/felixbbertrand/honeyquests
- Scrum board (Kanban): https://trello.com/b/34bFf1ZM/kanban
- Discord Links: https://discord.gg/YMtrN4cjYK in the #quests channel
What are the key features that will be integrated into the MVP?
Quests are a way to engage and organize community efforts to accomplish shared goals. Quests involve 3 participant roles.
- Creators - Create and campaign for quest funding
- Players - Complete quests
- Patrons - Fund quests
Creators define a task that can be publicly verified as completed and define some parameters:
- An expiration date
- A funding token (eg $hny)
- A patron address
- Collateral amount (%)
The quest description can be used by the creator to define requirements, milestones, and other details. This is open-ended and quite flexible, upon completion users would specify the reward amount, which may be the full amount held by the quest or a portion, depending on how the quest has been defined.
A one-off quest intended to be completed only once would allocate all of its funds to the first completion. However, a quest intended to be completed multiple times in different ways, for example, “writing a blog post explaining your vision for 1hive over the course of 2021” could say that the first completion receives 10% of the funding, and each subsequent completion receives 10% creating a decaying reward until the quest expires.
Each time a quest is completed, a portion of the funds released are given to the creator. Once a quest has expired any remaining funding is returned to the Patron.
Expected duration or delivery date (if applicable):
Swarm DAO members with equal weight in control of funds:
Skills and previous experience in related or similar work:
Many new group members are involved, some of whom have already explained their skill in the introduce yourself thread. Overview of skills: web-dev, algo-trading, just back-end technologies, reverse engineering, mobile apps , full-stack and DevOps.
Mentors that will help throughout the project:
Amount of HNY requested:
HNY Requested 60 ~ $18k at the current price of $310/HNY.
Ethereum address where funds shall be transferred:
Quests Swarm DAO Agent:
A more detailed description of how funds will be handled and used:
Rates for contributors will be $30/hour. The above HNY should see us through to the MVP. Any funds remaining at this time will be used for future development. 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.
The hours work on the project will be visible here : Quests hours
