In the two weeks since the last DAO Committee report, six points of interest (POI) were added to the Decentraland map, and there are currently 10 active POI proposals. Three polls have passed with over 6 million Voting Power (VP), including a decision to delegate responsibility for development of the Reference Client to the Decentraland Foundation, which received over 11 million VP in support. Additionally, two new grants were enacted and funded which will contribute to the development and expansion of Decentraland’s community-led media sector.

Although it does not appear to have been nefarious in intent, over the past two weeks, Decentraland’s DAO was the target of a Sybil-like attack, in which one individual dispsered .01 VP across hundreds of accounts and voted on proposals with each account, in an attempt to create the illusion of higher support or opposition to proposals. This should be taken into consideration when viewing total vote counts for proposals included in this report, which often include over 100 votes.

To prevent this in the future, the DAO committee will be increasing the VP threshold required to be counted as a distinct vote. This will not have any impact on VP allocation, only on the total number of votes that are displayed. For example, it will now require 50 VP to be counted as a distinct vote. Votes allocating less than 50 VP will still allocate VP for or against a measure, however, these votes will not be included in the total displayed vote count.

  • Keep looking at the same wearable listed again and again in the marketplace 36% 387,802 VP (1 vote)

Should the marketplace add additional features for estate sales?

  • Yes, let’s do it! 36% 352,853 VP (110 votes)
  • I like the idea but it needs some refinement 64% 621,846 VP (10 votes)
  • Nope 0% 0 VP (0 votes)

    The DAO has determined that a proposal to add additional features for estate transactions on the Decentraland Marketplace requires additional refinement before being passed. This proposal may be modified and should be resubmitted as a pre-proposal for community discussion and consensus building.

Delegate the Reference Client roadmap to the Decentraland Foundation

  • For 99% 11,000,485 VP (132 votes)
  • Against 1% 6,515 VP (1 vote)

    The DAO has voted to delegate to the Foundation the responsibility of developing and executing the roadmap for the Reference Client. The delegation is for a period of 12 months and is limited to the Reference Client. It does not allow the Foundation to make changes to other areas of the Decentraland protocol without the DAO’s consent. The Foundation will provide the community with an initial 6 month iteration of the roadmap within the coming weeks, which must be approved by the DAO.

Should the default view mode be changed from Day mode to Night Mode?

  • Keep Day Mode as default 3% 203,457 VP (2 votes)
  • Change to having the Night Mode as default 1% 179 VP (2 votes)
  • Implement ‘Remember Mode used last session’ 96% 6,574,693 VP (121 votes)

    The DAO has voted to implement a UX mode to remember the day/night setting used during the last session. The Foundation has been notified about the feature request stating that it is not complicated to implement and that it will review how to fit this into their roadmap. It’s important to note that the Foundation has an ongoing effort to make a new version of the skybox, but a release date hasn’t been set yet.

Expanding the Community Grants Program

  • Approve the inclusion of Tire 4, 5 and 6, 99% 9,825,322 VP (131 votes)
  • Do not approve the inclusion of Tire 4, 5 and 6 1% 2,406 VP (1 vote)

    The DAO has voted to expand the range of grant tiers to support teams and larger scoped projects. This includes three additional tiers for grants ranging from $60,000 USD up to $240,000 USD, in MANA. The DAO Committee will consider implementation and voting thresholds and discuss with the community before opening expanded grant tiers to applicants.
