Marketing DAO - Sheet1(1).pdf (98.7 KB)

Couldn’t attend on today’s Marketing DAO meeting, because one of Marketing DAO council @grace made a decision, without any approvals from other Marketing DAO councils, about mandatory using video images on the calls.

Any DAO Council where the NF participates will require that from now, during Council meetings, all Council members show their face before the meeting starts (then can switch off the camera after that) additionally, for the council members to share their real name.

I consider this part of developing TRUST. Until today, we do not know your name or even seen your face in any meeting.

We will start minimizing exposure to anonymous agents in every possible way and more so, in relation to DAO Council Members.

I invite all Council members of the Marketing DAO to share their opinions.


Could you please create a separate proposal about it?

I’m not sure that you can just say “from now”. It’s not a decentralized or community driven way. I believe It should be public discussion and public voting, because it going to spread on all community members and potential Marketing, Ecosystem and other DAO’s councils before NF councils step out from DAO’s (deadline March 2022).

Furthermore, you’re a manager and team leader of half of Marketing DAO councils.

Will be great to see public discussion about it and public voting on our first community driven DAO

I created a proposal about it .

Thank You.

My thoughts:

  1. It can be real photo instead of video (due many reasons)
  1. Councils can complete KYC to confirm their identity.

  2. Another one very important question is safety. I got many threats after my investigations and reports.

@illia @marketingdao-council @marieke.flament


I think that this is fair.

It’s a prominent position in the community and you’re handling the community fund so a certain level of personal (not pseudonymous) accountability is to be expected and, IMO, fair.

There are hundreds of thousands of dollars of funding which, ultimately, belongs to the community being distributed through the MarketingDAO (and others).


Yes, and KYC is solution.

KYC is a solution for internal verification, I don’t think it solves the level of accountability that the community may expect

Dave I’m here since last summer , I see how some people gets money without any questions and reports. Or all kind of organization like Flying Rhino who even didn’t show their prices for NF. And many many other questions. Let’s maintain the same level for everyone instead of focused on particular people?

Yes, and I’m only one council who asking detailed reports from grantees . By the way, some people from NF team thinks it’s not important.

No problems do it for councils verification. It’s the best way now.

Anyway, All community members should vote for this. I you or Grace cannot make decision without approval from Community.


Absolutely, and I think it’s fair to show a semblance of a human being when you are distributing such high levels of funds

As I said it should be public discussion and voting.


Should everyone use real names on the forum?

Should everyone use real photos on the forum?

Will you of NF insure security guarantees for contributors?

Should be kind of agreement between NF and contributors about personal data.


Now, when anybody asking some personal information it violates community guidelines.

Yes, KYC the best solution.

That’s a general guideline for forum usage, we’re talking about the position of Council Member in the MarketingDAO (and any other DAO/vertical which receives funding of this capacity from NF)

No it’s not about Marketing DAO. Grace proposed it for every DAO where NF people are present.

Legal Guild
Community DAO (76 people by the way)

Not council members, though.

Understandable, since it can work to prevent malicious actors alongside contributing to accountability

No matter, because voting policy is over 49% of Community DAO members (councils included).

KYC and decentralization (9 people in DAO).

You can see above how NF approved money for grantees and didn’t get any reports.

If you are talking about identification on the meeting only, every council must keeps yours data securely as well as wallet phrases , etc. Many many questions should be included in councils guide.

What is more of an ask, asking someone to show their video in a call or asking them to submit personal documentation and a home address?

It does matter. It’s Council Members only, please note that the Community DAO has essentially ceased to distribute funding:


49% of all DAO’s members can change voting policy or councils.,

Part of the reason it has ceased distributing funds. Not too relevant to the topic of face reveals on video, though IMO

Cheddar DAO as well.

If i am allowed to put in my opinion as an ordinary member among such big names then:

This can result in bad results if i talk of safety atleast in my opinion and in my case.
Revealing myself in public with assets i possess( after getting funds for project, any other work etc.) its easy to track and hunt down.
Recently learnt a case where a binance user was heckled to death( luckily survived) and transfer all his assets on gun point etc.
Making myself public can prove a disaster for my security.
Kyc by a reputed company can be a solution for uniqueness and i strongly agree with @dacha on the same.


Yes, I actually got many threats in pm’s from some Near Community members. Last was from Kazan’s members, just because I left negative decision on their proposal.
