DCP0: The DAOSquare Community Proposal Framework

DAOSquare Community Proposal (DCP) is the standard way to submit any executable advice, suggestion for the DAOSquare community.

:bulb: Flow map

Step1: Submit a proposal in forum

  • Everyone can submit a DCP in DAOSquare forum (Governance - DAOSquare).
  • Share your proposal in Discord #TownHall channel and @Cafeteria.
  • 3 days of discussion for a proposal and then it will into the queue for the next step.

Note: Queue is a waiting pool for execution. Every execution period only handles one proposal, so all proposals need to wait for the previous proposal to leave the execution period.

Step2: Meetings organized by Cafeteria

  • Cafeteria organizes one or more calls to discuss the proposals in 3days when the proposal is into execution period.
  • Meeting call is in #CafeCall channel in Discord, and it’s open for all community members.
  • If there are modifications suggestions after the calls, Cafeteria can suggest applicants modify it and re-submit. If not, will into the queue for the next step.

Step3: Vote on proposal on-chain

  • Cafeteria submits the proposal on Snapshot.
  • Members who hold the Cafeteria NFT can vote on the proposal.
  • Voting period is 2 days.

Step4: Bulletin in community

  • When the voting is done, Cafeteria needs to note results in proposals on the forum via a comment.
  • Matrix posts the announcement on Discord and Twitter.
