This proposal seeks to do the following:
- Fill in the gap left by the departure of Governance Lead @mrjaf, to ensure continued operational efficiency of the DAO.
- Add a new address to the Push Snapshot Space as an ‘Author’.
Push DAO has recently had to say goodbye to a critical member of the DAO. @mrjaf was the Push DAO governance lead and was the key point of contact for many of the operational aspects of the DAO. One of the important operations he was tasked with was operating the Push Snapshot Space (reviewing, editing, and moving proposals to vote).
This proposal seeks to appoint a community member (i.e. myself) as an ‘Author’ on the Push Snapshot Space. This will allow a high-context community member to carry forward any future proposals that will arise. Ideally, the role of moving proposals to Snapshot would be done by Push Delegates. However, considering Push DAO does not currently have a recognized delegate framework, this will be a temporary solution until a more robust framework is in place.
Lastly, just for context, anyone can post to the snapshot space (if they hold 75,000 $PUSH) however this is a huge financial commitment for most DAO members, so I am proposing the author role.
A snapshot space role is a set of permissions related to managing a snapshot space and its proposals for which an account (wallet address) can be granted. There are 4 roles, controller, admin, moderator, and author.
The ‘Author’ role can only create proposals regardless of their voting power and select the proposal validation strategy. The Author cannot make any changes to a snapshot space, and can only post proposals. These proposals can be taken down by any of the other roles, therefore the risks of abuse are relatively low. An author can also be removed at any time at the discretion of the Snapshot space’s admins.
I have been an active Push DAO contributor for the past few months, and have been a community member of Push DAO for more than a year now. Some of my contributions include spearheading the currently passed Push Grants Program v3, and the still-in incubation Push DAO Development and Growth SubDAO.
I also have extensive experience with all the operational aspects of the Snapshot platform, I was previously a governance operations lead at Index Coop. Part of the remit of this role was reviewing, editing, and posting proposals on snapshot, where I was an admin (examples here & here).
FOR: Add @sixtykeys as an author on the Push Snapshot Space
AGAINST: Do not add @sixtykeys as an author on the Push Snapshot Space
