A few rambling thoughts which could be apart of the discussion:
I’d like to hear thoughts about Building a DAO community… aims for communication and social interaction to harness and nurture the community. Besides building a forum, how can we incentivize users to get involved along the way, and not just wait until the platform is built. When does SNGLS DAO actually begin acting like a DAO, where proposals are put to vote through tokens?
We have brought on a marketing director for our Crypto efforts in Europe/America+ and have our Asia marketing team hard at work bringing in more people. Incentivizing users is something that is not easy, we will be bountying out work though which might help. If you have any ideas I’m all ears. The SNGLS DAO will work like a DAO fully in about two years (that includes Content Mining which is the hardest part), but there will be minor things people can do like voting on the listing fee probably in the first half of 2020. I don’t have a roadmap in concrete for you just yet.
Related to this, i think there are unanswered questions about the nature of validators as curators. The assumption that the artistic tastes of token holders match anything close to what users would like to, or pay to see/listen to. What are the different options being looked at to solve curation by whale problems?
We are choosing not to call them curators for a reason. The curation happens at the UI level not the protocol level and what I mean by that is that the UI doesn’t have to list all the content that is on the protocol. Personally I think most stuff will get onto the protocol as there is incentive to vote stuff on there.
There is lots of talk in the whitepaper about web3.0 and web2.0 the interfaces and the DAO structure, but there is very little to nothing about the backend of the distribution platform. Are films and music just going to be hosted by the developer “participants” or is there a decentralized hosting solution that is being adopted?
We will have a more in depth yellow paper that explains the P2P backend. We are looking at ways to incentive the P2P backend also.
