Upon launch, one of the initial problems for people who join Colony will be Discoverability. Has there been any conversation around having a State of the Dapps-style page that could potentially turn one of the “weaknesses” of decentralization into a strength? A Colony Atlas, if you will.
I think the idea has a lot of potential, could facilitate different colonies working together, and carves out some space to create some strong memes. #discoveryourcolony, #whatsyourcolony, maps, atlases, almanacs, postcards, etc…
The questions I have are:
- Could this be a Domain in the MetaColony or would it need to be its own Colony? (I’m now realizing it’s entirely possible for independent Colonies to be merged into larger, more well-funded Colonies like mergers in meatspace )
- Speaking of which, how will the new Modular Permissions as outlined in the latest Q2 Update be governed in the MetaColony?
- I’d guess a “Discover your Colony” site would be a popular Budget Box item. Will there be a spec for proposals and submissions?
- That said, a Budget Box front-end would be another useful Domain in the MetaColony
Rough Draft for Colony Descriptor Page
- Native Token
- Colony Admin(s)
- Amount of funds in Pots?
- Contract Addresses
- Top Reputation Holders
- Current Tasks/Bounties
The Colony Atlas would not only help discoverability, but would also facilitate more Colonies to “cross-pollinate”, thereby growing the ecosystem. I’m interested to hear people’s opinions on this as well as what might be some of the difficulties in the implementation and maintenance.
