BIP 28: Badger Grants Program

Just because you do not agree with my opinion does not mean it is not a valid concern. I believe in the DAO and what it stands for but think that man sometimes vote with a cattle mentality. But as you said, you have reached quorum. A DAO is where everyone’s voice is heard, doesn’t mean that everyone get’s what they want.

I never said your concern was not valid. I am saying it seems to not be based on industry standards. I’m responding to you because we’ve received feedback of not having addressed community members’ concerns before pushing to snapshot. I am backing up the numbers with sources saying our numbers are low, and you are just saying that you have x years of experience.

Hope this clears things up.

No i get it. Thanks for the clarification. Yes I did indicate the number of years that I have worked in the field and the specific function. The sources you cited were related to a hiring bonus for the resource. They do not apply to a “finders fee” applied or provided to the referring party. While I understand where you were going, the typical referral fee for a seasoned developer ranges from $1200 - $1500 US. This is a headhunting average. Regardless of the information, the overwhelming majority have seemed to agree with your figures. As I explained, I may not agree but holding up progress is not my intention. For this reason, I am willing to rest my opposition to this discussion.

I apologize, that was a mistype. The range is $1200.00 - $15000.00 US in most fortune 500 companies.

Awesome - glad we could get it sorted. Hopefully I helped address your concerns! Will push to snapshot

Thank you for addressing that specific concern.

However there are some other community members that have provided positive feedback and suggestions, without any answer or comment from the creator of the BIP (or the core team).

The BIP was already good and most of us are supporting it. But some of the feedback provided by the community would make it even better.

I hope you see my point: BIPs can be enriched by the community. So I would love to see some of that feedback being incorporated into the BIP itself, so when it is moved to snapshot it is a better BIP.

Re: your comment @cryptomooniac

This BIP is meant to set forth a framework. The parameters can be adjusted by governance.

I’ve read through the comments and most are about parameters. Do you have immediate concerns you’d like me to respond to?

I voted For, want to participate in the development myself.

If this is just a framework that can be adjusted, I’ll go ahead and vote yes. My contention as I stated above is that the payments should be in usd amounts of badger. Maybe I’m misunderstanding but if we hire someone for 12 months and tell them they will be paid 500 badger a month when the price of badger is $20 but in 6 months it is $100 it seems we would be overpaying.

that’s why most project do both. I like the idea of a minimum amount paid in USD for life cost.

And another part (vested) in the homemade token. But this should also be the case for core team, not only grants.

Look at the last grant round, especially the core team, with a price at $30 ! of course, it also true if badger goes back to $5

Hi DefiFrog, I wanted to chat w/ someone on the team about some light outreach work for China region given how big BTC is there. We’re already running a chat group + Badger account in a forum + account on Chinese Twitter (Weibo). Be good to get send over a few more ideas to get the word out. I want to invite someone from team to do a AMA with a huge community with 50k+ users.
