In the two weeks since the last DAO Committee report, three points of interest (POI) have been added to the Decentraland map, and three additional POI proposals are active.

The DAO’s first Tier 6 grants were approved, allocating $175,000 USD for the Blender Development Fund and $240,000 USD for a p2e gaming project. It is very exciting for the Decentraland community both to be able to apply for and fund grants of this scale. However, the amount of VP needed to approve $60k to $240k grants USD remains unchanged at 1 million VP. To protect the DAO treasury and ensure grants of this scale have broader community buy-in, a proposal has been submitted to increase acceptance thresholds for Tier 4, Tier 5, and Tier 6 grants to 2M VP, 4M VP, and 8M VP respectively.

Additionally, a proposal has been approved suggesting that the 500 MANA wearables publication fee be regularly adjusted to reduce any financial barriers for creators. While debate around this issue remains ongoing in the community, the DAO measure was passed and will be implemented to the greatest extent possible. A follow-up proposal aiming to build community consensus and come to a long-term solution will be submitted in the coming week(s).

  • No 0% 0 VP (0 votes)

Should the Wearable Publication Fee Be Adjusted Weekly to Reflect a Set Fiat Value?

  • Adjust the Wearable Publication Fee on a Weekly Basis to Reflect an Approximate Fiat Value 77% 2,150,616 VP (44 votes)
  • Adjust the Wearable Publication Fee at a Different Frequency to reflect an Approximate Fiat Value 1% 66 VP (1 vote)
  • Leave the Wearable Publication Fee at 500 MANA 21% 590,969 VP (6 votes)
  • Invalid question/options 1% 234 VP (1 vote)

The DAO has voted to adjust the wearable publication fee to reflect an approximate fiat value of $500 USD - also adjusting the Curation Committee’s compensation that it remains at 10% of the wearable publication fee.

As decided by the DAO Community, the wearable publication fee will be adjusted to approximately match $500 USD by end of the day (UTC) on Wednesday, November 17. At the time of writing, that value is 160 MANA.

However, the Security Advisory Board owns the smart contract that controls wearable publication fees, and having the SAB manually adjust the fee weekly is unreliable. The DAO Committee will collaborate with the SAB and the broader community to develop a more scalable, automated method for regularly adjusting fees.

  • Yes 55% 459,383 VP (44 votes)
  • No 45% 387,357 VP (3 votes)

The DAO has requested a feature to store and rapidly equip a minimum of 5 wearable “outfits.” The DAO committee will discuss implementation feasibility with the Decentraland Foundation.

The DAO has voted to modify the Blender Development Fund grant. Under this proposal, the DAO would pay for a “Patron” level of support instead of the “Corporate Gold” level.

Future changes to grant requests and approved grants should be done through a more formal process, which may need to be developed by the DAO Community.
