Paid Roles Proposal

Title: Paid Roles
Authors: Alejandro Santander, Gonzalo Diez
Date: 26/10/2023


Several of the activities being proposed along with the DAO’s new mission involve a considerable amount of work from DAO members. This proposal introduces a method for identifying, assigning, and compensating such roles.

The DAO paid roles document

All roles must be registered in a public document composed of a table, and a log. The table below is suggested as the first real iteration of the DAO’s paid roles.

If a role becomes too heavy, the compensation can be increased or the responsibilities can be split out into a new role.

Role assignees

It is the council’s responsibility to ensure that the roles necessary for the DAO’s operation are fulfilled.

The roles can be filled by any DAO member. At first, most of them should be filled by the council, but as the DAO’s activity grows, the council can generate new structures in the organization to fulfill the roles.

Editing the roles

Only the council has the power to edit these roles by majority vote during council meetings.

Any changes to the table must be registered in the log.
