Proposal for DAOSquare:
We propose to you to build a light integration of DAOSquare by adding RICE token to our API and hosted app environment. This will enable you to seamlessly distribute RICE tokens as rewards to the top active participants in your community directly in your Slack or Discord.
In addition to helping you internally share RICE tokens within your ecosystem, this integration lets us offer RICE to our user base of 1000+ organizations as an option via Quidli’s open token platform.

Once completed, $RICE token will be available as an option on:

  1. Quidli web app
  2. Quidli Slack app
  3. Quidli Discord app
  4. Any subsequent integrations built by Quidli

Here’s some key numbers we observed in 2022 on Quidli:

  • nb of organizations: 1100+
  • transaction volume: ~$2.4m
  • Nb of transactions: ~140k/month
  • Types of orgs: Remote companies, online communities, web3 organizations, DAOs
  • Use cases: Recognition, rewards, incentives, ambassador programs

Added value for DAO Square:
Through this initial partnership, we’d like to help DAOSquare build an awesome community and ecosystem by enabling you to effectively boost community engagement using token incentives. Sharing more tokens with community members can help you to establish a positive alignment flywheel leading to more contributions and ultimately growth towards your main mission and objectives.

Roadmap proposal:
1st Milestone: Review of the token technical documentation (blockchain, smart contracts, tokens, etc.).
2nd Milestone: Testing to ensure $RICE is functional and usable within our environment.
3st Milestone: Review the integration with the DAO Square grant team

Timeline: 3 weeks
Budget to integrate RICE: We’re asking for $1,500 (in $RICE, USDC or fiat preference) to kick off the integration work.
