Any payout that is accumulated from this specific post will be powered up to replace the initial delegation given to ensure the account could function due to RC limits. Thank you for understanding.

A Townhall was held in the Steem Alliance discord on Sunday, Feb 10th. The purpose of the meeting was to talk about the forthcoming request for proposals with the community. It also provided an opportunity for the community present to ask questions about the process the Working Group has developed.

We recorded the meeting to allow those unable to attend to hear the meeting. We thought this meeting was beneficial and will try to continue them in the future. Thanks for being a part of this process as we make our way forward.

ok, so let me see if i'm following. The focus of this foundation will be;

"... to help push Steem into the mainstream arena with focus on marketing, upkeep of Steemit,com, development of steemd, outreach and Steem events. Funding would need to be fundraising/profit based but also with large seed from Steemit Inc. itself."

And the WG will be looking for ideas (proposals) on how to structure the foundation with that goal (mission) in mind.

The end (for now), correct? So this discussion about DAO's etc., are all discussions that should be happening between community members, who are putting together a proposal for the structure of the foundation to submit to the WG and the community for voting.


and thank you for all of your hard, FREE work. Hang on to your sanity! (said from a serial volunteer and career non profit employee)



thank you for the question @bethalea!

Well, the conversation about the DAO structure actually is pertaining to the Steem Worker Proposal System (Steem DAO) that Bloctrades is working on. There are multiple posts on that subject so be sure to check them, but this was the initial introduction to it ( Currently there is a poll happening to get public opinion on where the funding for that project would come from.

The Steem DAO (Steem Worker Proposal System) is a completely different project than the community foundation the Steem Alliance group is trying to help organize. The two do compliment each other well though and will work alongside each other in a way.

The Steem DAO is simply a tool (code) that is implemented into the blockchain itself that allows anyone to bring a proposal forward (to the interface) and it is voted based on stake weight. If enough of the stake holders agree to the proposal, funding is granted (probably through a third party that acts as escrow). The process is entirely automated.

The Community Foundation that we are working on building through the Steem Alliance group with the community is a bit different as its the human element and will focus on more visual aspects of the chain.

How will they interact? Well that depends on the approved structure of the foundation.

The future community foundation could be responsible for certain things, like the public repositories of code. The foundation could open these up to the community so they could be more involved in this aspect, and requires a human element. The foundation could also be responsible for the website itself as well as marketing, events etc (all which require the human element). The foundation could apply for funding on specific things using the DAO system just like anyone from the community could.. and how else they would interact is up to the public.

The DAO system doesn't really have "responsibilities", its just a tool that allows anyone to apply for funding and then a voting mechanism is used to decide what receives funding.

Essentially, the public now has two ways to apply for funding in the future. Either through The Steem DAO system (automated) or the yet to be determined foundation which the community is building together (human element).

I hope that makes it a bit more clear. I know its confusing as there are still some things that are unknown, but please feel free to ask any other questions and I will do my best to answer them. Thank you!

For better information of the German community I translated this post. To keep with you "non-profit" approach half of the rewards will go to @nosdos, the account supports charities that find new homes for street dogs etc.


Thank you so much @muscara! While we made the decision to decline payouts just to ensure we are just a communication account, we don’t believe those doing the translations should have to decline rewards.. as they are doing work and there is nothing wrong with receiving payment for doing a service. Just wanted to be sure that was clear 🙂 Thanks again!
