Assign 500 NODEstream to each DAppNode purchaser that is selected for the Gnosis Chain Decentralized Validator Incentive Program.
During the NODEdrop, the criteria that the DAppNode Association took to distribute their NODE token was to include stakeholders that are aligned with the mission and values of DAppNode to make them a part of the NODEconomy.
Thanks to the partnership between DAppNode and Gnosis Chain, we are bringing new users to their community of validators.
This proposal aims to turn those new users in members of the DAppNode community, and make them part of the future of DAppNode.
I suggest to assign a conditional NODEstream of 500 $NODE to each of the beneficiaries of the Gnosis Chain Decentralized Validator Incentive Program. The stream would be for 2 years and it would be conditional to them using DAppNode to maintain decentralized infrastructure. How can we know whether they are maintaining decentralized infrastructure if DAppNode does not capture any metrics? By looking at the validators that they receive from the Gnosis Chain incentive program: As long as the validators are up and validating, the NODEstream would keep flowing. After 1 month (30 days) of inactivity or after the withdrawal of the Validator deposit, the NODEstream would be revoked. I have chosen 30 days because DAppNode users are mostly individual node runners in home setups. 30 days is plenty of time for this type of user to get their node up and running again if they had a problem, a move of residency, a problem during their holidays, etc.
Another way of revoking the stream would be via a DAO proposal if a participant is detected to have “bad faith” - a term that I will let without much description but generally going against the purpose of the program, trying to abuse the program or doing something against the interest of the broader DAppNodeDAO. Note that this shouldn’t have to occur and we might never need to take such measures.
For the pilot program 30 users will be beneficiaries of the program, which prices this proposal to 15,000 NODE.
Nevertheless, we are in talks in order to expand this program to 1000 units. It is possible that this number is reduced, but I would like to include in this proposal the possibility of allocating the necessary NODE, which will be returned to the DAO treasury if not used.
1000 * 500 = 500,000 NODE
I will post this in our snapshot tomorrow if there’s no significant changes suggested by the community members and we’ll be able to vote!
