Approval of the budget proposal



Hey guys @Cryptonaut & @beetlejuice , as topic decentralization is being discussed widely in the forum at the moment, I wonder if you have some thoughts and considerations towards the future of Spiritual DAO and it’s council members in terms of expansion and community building?

Hi Ted,

It is all mentioned in the proposal bud however I feel it wasn’t very clearly put.

Lemme explain.

We are adding

4 members for content creation all on chain
Video editor
Audio engineer

We’re adding a Yoga teacher to our community who will be producing videos and sharing insights that cut through the choas of confusion when it comes to spiritual practices

2 Spiritual Masters, who’ve been teaching their practice for over 20+ years (we’re trying to add 4 but if not, we’ll add 2 next month) - they are only there so we can have conversations with them, AMAs with them and for them to be able to share their wisdom with us

2 spiritually practitioners who will be members (we’re trying to add 4 but if not, we’ll add 2 next month) - they will take AMAs, conduct interviews with spiritual masters, and help us to vote in our decision making as to how the DAOs should grow or what direction this DAO should take.

There will be 8 members added this month atleast.

Apart from spiritual masters all of them will learn how the DAO works and we’d like to take a council from them in a few months.

We’ll reach them how Astro works and all the governance would happen there.

We didn’t want to add anyone til now as we didn’t have any clear idea for sustainability, now we do and we’d like to develop a community we can provide funds to sustain and they intern will help the DAO to grow!

We also want to just not add people for growing our size. We want the core team to be very strong so the network effect produced is the right one. Hence we’re choosing people very slowly and carefully.

Hope this answers question. Let me know if you have any other doubts!

@Cryptonaut thanks for the extra insight on this, I saw the information laid out for onboarding new community members. This question I was speaking specifically about council members with voting rights in the DAO in this instance. Apologies if I missed this somewhere, and thank you for clarifying that. Completely agree with adding people to be productive rather than growing in size quickly!


People who will become our members will be taken as a council after being well versed with the system within 3-4 months.

We’ll look at member’s participation, suggestions and will to become a council based on which we’ll onboard them as a council.

Most of the rewarded activities will go to the Spiritual DAO leadership, is that right?
