The list of potential tasks is endless.
Create more information material
a) FAQ (writing questions would already help a lot - I can (hopefully :D) help with the answers.
b) more blog posts
d) explain video
e) curate the mailinglist
*a) Unify blog (ourbasicincome.wordpress.com) and forum together with a landing page on one website.
b) finalize the solidity contracts that are the underlying foundation of circles
c) frontend/webpage for circles: ask/coordinate with: http://design.basicincomeproject.org/
Coin “history” idea - see where your coins are coming from
Art Work/ Design
b) Video Art similar to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70Fa3wjW6yo
It would be great to have some visual concept/them that can be used for all Circles related contend.
Making it happen
a) create a crowdfunding campaign
b) convince busnisses/individuals/to accept Circles
To mange this tasks we use a trello board.
Not sure how keyed in you are with the general DAO framework by Slockit, but the DAO launching out of there soon would be a perfect place to appeal for funding. There’s going to be a heap of excess capital that the community will want to spend on projects like this, and personally this is a project that as a future token holder I want to fund.
Does DAOifying this project and these tasks stand out to you as a way of moving forward?
Interesting idea. I am very familiar with DAOs since we want to start our own one for this for profit project Gnosis: dev.groupgnosis.com; forum.groupgnosis;
For Circles it is essential to me that it is at its core a none profit thing. I think we should resist the temptation to take a fee of the newly generated money. However - I would be open - and think it is a good idea to build mechanisms into Circles that will fund all kind of publics goods (like open source software or creative commons stuff). So I would be fine that by default a new Circles user would spend some of its Circles to a Circles DAO - but they should have the option to chose other things to fund.
I agree that it should be non-profit. I mean more that by establishing a DAO structure for Circles, it’ll be easier to appeal for funding from this upcoming DAO. Not for a return: the utility Circle is building easily warrants funding without direct compensation (like the ETH/DOGE Relay BountyDAO, which currently stands at ~$50k). However that’s only if you think you’ll need ETH to get people to complete those tasks.
So some money/ETH obviously can help to get something done. However - the main thing I want to accomplish with this money is that we could guarantee shop owners that if they accept “Circles” they can at least exchange a fraction of them into USD/ETH/… so that they can cover their costs for their goods. So it should go into a fund that stabilizes the value of Circles.
