Guest Post: DAO Committee Report #0012
A review of the proposals and polls passed in the DAO from November 16 through November 30
In the two weeks since the last DAO Committee report, one point of interest (POI) has been added to the Decentraland map, 11 grant proposals have been approved, and eight community polls have passed.
Following passage of a vote to adjust the wearable publication fee on November 7, this fee has been updated to closely match $500 USD, and is now set at 100 MANA. There is currently an active proposal calling for a reimbursement of wearable publication fees incurred during the time period between the passage of the fee adjustment vote and its implementation.
Over recent weeks there has been a notable increase in grant-seeking proposals, particularly in the recently added tiers 4 through 6. On November 17, a proposal to increase the acceptance threshold and voting period for grants of tiers 4, 5 and 6 was passed. This proposal has increased the acceptance thresholds to 2M VP, 4M VP, and 8M VP for tiers 4, 5, and 6, respectively, and the voting period for tier 4-6 grants has been extended to two weeks.
Any grant requests submitted after the acceptance of the new thresholds that did not reach the new thresholds will need to be resubmitted.

- Yes! Let’s Hire! 98% 333,289 VP (47 votes)
- No. 2% 8,169 VP (3 votes)
The DAO has voted to hire “talented devs” to help moderate and support the SDK chat in Decentraland’s Discord server. There are two pathways to move forward with this process: A) The DAO committee could put forth a proposal outlining a HR process for the hire of these positions; or B) a decentraland community member could apply for a grant to hire, manage, and oversee this team. The DAO Committee will allow a two-week window for a community member to make such a request, afterwhich a HR process will be outlined and submitted by proposal to the DAO community.
