Questions to Near Community
Questions to Near Community
Sadly, as one of the most active members of the community, I didn’t know about this through any communication channel, both on forum & NDC’s TG groups. I doubt if the larger community was informed and put forwards the names.
Is NDC Manifesto just a paper work with no application value?
Was the Foundation aware of this & totally fine with it? @shreyas @DammnThatsCrazy
There was no “trustee election” with regards to the trust instrument creating the Community Treasury. It would also not make any sense to have an election in this regard given that trustees are not politicians, they have to safeguard assets and act within the boundaries that are set out in the trust instrument. You need to have capable and professional individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to NEAR and its community. Once signing procedure is completed both GWG and NF will send out press releases, you will be able to see the trust instrument, information on the vetting procedure and on the trustees of the Community Treasury. Please also note that once a viable voting mechanism is live, the community will be able to remove and appoint trustees to the Community Treasury.
Some responses to your questions:
The GWG is learning as we go, and some have even suggested we had too many threads and not just 1 place to share updates. We are developing one Hub and process for a distribution network as quickly as possible. So apologies to all of you in advance, we are trying our best.
To restate from my initial post, the trustees were needed to START the trust — one could not be opened without them. And they need to be professionals with experience in finance and management. Though, they are NOT permanent. They can and should be elected when we will have a voting platform that can support the process.
The Trustees are NOT primarily there to make funding decisions. That’s what the House of Merit will do. The Trustees are there to execute decisions made by the HoM. Their role is in safeguarding the Community Treasury is largely to ensure that decisions taken are in line with the frameworks and policies prior to executing a transfer.
The process of voting is the most crucial of all the things we need to create and actual use to make voting possible, transparent, and fair. We need your support in developing and testing it.
Finally, the foundation is fully aware of all we are doing. Again, they own the process of the transfer to the Community Treasury. The GWG is following the rules put before us.
That said, your questions are all, of course, fair, and hope this was helpful.
Hi Dacha, I changed the title back to the one I originally wrote because I was not making a call to vote. I respect your call to vote, though I want to honor what I originally wrote. Thanks.
@Dacha and all – here is a list of the Q4 Bounties for GWG activities.
The links are not working , probably following to internal groups. Openness?
Instead of apologies - do something. This is issue with trustees, what the call to action ?
It’s why Community doesn’t need to understand who are people and how were selected?
I’m not sure that NF aware about this particular issue.
Hi Dacha, you were a member of this group: NDC Governance Working Group – a group of roughly 300+ people.
I can share screenshots here or, perhaps better, you join again and then can open them all? Whatever works best.
lfg Sadly, as one of the most active members of the community
Nobody has access to the chats. Maybe only some people.
Happy to try to upload screen shots.
Here are screenshots from the TG NDC Governance Working Group of over 300+ people and NDC Champions Group:
If they walk like ducks, quack like ducks, but the political messaging tells us they are definitely not ducks…
Ok thanks. The first link was eddited by you.
So, could you please give answers on rest questions:
Yes, the first link for the Q4 bounties was created by me as requested. Glad it opened.
Yes about your questions, when I am given the go-ahead to release – which should be next week – I will post here.
Have a good weekend.
I can confirm I was invited to a ‘closed’ group that was trying to accelerate the NDC process.
I eventually left and can’t give more information on what was decided or not decided in that group or in others like it, but I believe this info alone helps the community understand the ‘mixed’ policies used to launch and accelerate the NDC.
It is fairer to say that it was a mix of community calls (open) and closed groups. Honesty is better than the opposite
Im not sure this question makes sense, perhaps it’s just me, looks incomplete as a sentence.
