TIP-13 - Sn2 Funding April/May




This proposal continues to fund the efforts of SN2 to continue to support the ESD protocol. This grant requests funds to cover continued development of the new DAO web app, continued communications, governance support, community management and continued development of the documentation.

Last Grant’s Roundup

With the last grant we continued work on the communications, governance and community activities as well as the redesign of the new DAO interface. The Curve interface was put on hold as a number of other communities made front ends for this.

The last grant wrapped up at the end of February and it was decided that we hold off putting in another grant while we waited for the new protocol code to finalised and ready to be built upon. Now that its ready to go, we will dive back in and get back into it.

May Grant update

Continuing on from last month, work on the DAO website continued. This included integration testing with the finalised version of the contracts on the Ropsten testnet. We ran through the basic functions of the dao: migration, minting, burning, governance actions and displaying useful info for users. We squashed a few bugs along the way and are gearing up for a final run-through.

Comms activities continued with newsletter and community moderation continuing. Activity is low in the community as we are in stasis while we wait for the new contracts to be launch in prod. However we expect it to pickup closer to launch.

Total Spend: $820 USD
