I am proposing we execute another mandated round for 100 ETH to fund 5 teams @ 20 ETH each with the mandate to build alternative Nouns Governance clients.
Given the success of our first mandated round, I am proposing that we kick-off a second mandated round for Nouns governance clients. For folks who missed it: an overview of the Nouns Client round:
- 35 proposals from top caliber builders
- 1416 votes casted (a record for Prop House)
- 4 teams funded
- A record breaking % of highly desirable proposals
- Noun-pilled top quality folks
This time around, we’d be inviting builders to propose ideas for an alternative Nouns Governance clients. While our classic nouns.wtf/vote gets the job done, there is a lot more to explore regarding Nouns governance. This might take several directions:
- Delegation marketplace
- Better info curation to make more informed decisions
- New voting mechanisms for Nouners to better signal prior to going on-chain
- Post-funding trackers
The thing to note is that there are good ideas outside of the community and highly competent builders ready to execute on them. Prop House mandated rounds are a way to not only build up the Nouns ecosystem but also onboard top-notch builders as well.
The mandate would be an open-ended around Nouns Governance such that any client that follows the prompt to improve Nouns Governance is welcome.
The round will be hosted on the Nouns Mandates house with 3 weeks proposal time and 1 week for voting.
Any feedback prior to putting this on-chain is welcome!
