The SOFT DAO seeks long-term engagements with qualified Core Teams to support crypto tools.
Applicants should provide a detailed proposal including:
Specific deliverables: what will the Core Team do?
Timeline for deliverables: when will this happen?
Qualifications: why is this team the best choice?
Alignment: how will both the Core Team and the DAO win?
The DAO votes on Core Team applications. If an application is approved, the Core Team must execute a Core Team Agreement with the DAO to become a Core Team. Core Team Agreements enshrine the Core Team’s responsibilities.
Once approved, the Core Team is responsible to operate as identified in its Core Team Agreement.
The SOFT DAO provides Core Teams:
Token grants, swaps, or loans, potentially subject to vesting
Public endorsement of Core Team status
Guidance on primitives and standards
Access to SOFT forums
While the DAO can steward on-chain primitives and manage its treasury directly, it cannot directly manage off-chain crypto tools, which must move at a pace faster than on-chain DAO governance.
Therefore the SOFT DAO must partner with focused teams to build and operate these tools. The SOFT DAO foresees opportunities for Core Teams in these and other categories:
Hey guys. Well, everything sounds reasonable, now I guess we need a list of Core teams so we can chose the best one. I hope soon we’ll have a chance to take a look at applications and to make our decision.
