Rewarding monthly contributors w/ xMETRIC is an important improvement on our current payment structure, as it properly rewards those actively contributing to the success of the DAO.
Currently, the only actors in the MDAO ecosystem that are rewarded with xMETRIC are those who participate in the bounty system (authors, graders, reviewers). However, I believe that monthly contributors should also be awarded xMETRIC, because they may not have time to jam on bounty questions to do their workload within the DAO. This METIP would also allow MDAO leadership to track contributors month-over-month more efficiently.
I propose that, moving forward, we pay every monthly contributor 250 xMETRIC a month. This is inline with the amount of xMETRIC we pay every analyst who answers a bounty question. Additionally, I propose we pay all S2 contributors from July & August a retroactive payment of 250 xMETRIC per month of contribution.
Based on the above, every season, the max xMETRIC a monthly contributor can earn from non-bounty related activity is 750 xMETRIC.
Can provide upon request.
Voting Outcomes and Next Steps:
YES: Retroactively Pay S2 contributors xMETRIC AND pay contributors xMETRIC moving forward
NO: Don’t pay monthly contributors xMETRIC
This proposal will incorporate the suggestions made by danner.eth in this comment: [METIP #3] Add xMetric to Monthly Contributor Payments - #6 by danner.eth
A spreadsheet for xMetrics payments can be found here: xMetric Payments - Google Sheets
The amounts in the spreadsheet reflect the tiered system discussed and added an extra tier for the Monthly Core Contributors (300 vs. 200 xMetric for Gold)
