Final countdown to the announcement of Sputnik(s)…
NEAR Guilds have to efficiently and effectively allocate resources to their contributors.
Sputnik DAO is a community-run project united by a common purpose:
Develop Sputnik and expand the intergalactic mesh of satellite organizations
Ideally, there will be many Sputnik councils (a.k.a. squads) working together! This potential structure is not limited to a single instance of the contract, which is really a DAO factory. NEAR empowers any group of creators to build their own decentralized autonomous organizations.

Anyone can submit proposals:
When someone creates a proposal, they must attach a
bond (amount of NEAR required to put something to a vote). If a proposal gets accepted, the
bond is returned to its creator.

For the initial Sputnik DAO, when a proposal achieves greater than 50% of council members voting “YES,” that decision is finalized. If a payout proposal is approved, then Sputnik automatically delivers funds to the recipient. A voting policy can define thresholds for different kinds of proposals, e.g. different levels of
Payout, based on the
amount of NEAR requested. With a super majority vote, Sputnik DAO may upgrade its current implementation.
Generally, X number of “YES” votes are required to approve a proposal, depending on the policy. After a proposal gets a minimum required number of “YES” votes and zero “NO” votes within a grace period, that decision can be finalized by anyone. If it received a majority as defined by the policy, it gets finalized automatically. These policies are modular and flexible, according to specific requirements of a community.
Create your own Sputnik
All are welcome to build solutions with our community! You need a council, goals, and projects in order to develop a Sputnik DAO. The platform will soon have an easy process for launching your own council based on the overall purpose. Write a post like this one to gather additional feedback and invite others to participate.

This multi-player game is completely open source, which means you can fork and evolve our code to be more inclusive and sophisticated. Choose your own adventure! Maybe start by communicating with other participants here on the forum. The original council needs to be small in order to reach quorum efficiently.
Blockchain technology introduces new potential for open governance, which evolves cooperation into collaboration through coordination. Essentially, the alignment created by making decisions together facilitates understanding common goals. I believe Sputnik councils optimizing for impact depend on the collective intelligence of agencies.
