at LeapDAO we have already been funneling all our payments through Colony for a few weeks. Here an attempt to describe how we do it:
How we work
As a developer cooperative, LeapDAO uses Holacracy to structure teams and budgets in alignment with its purpose and roadmap. Currently we look something like this:
Each of the circle manages a multi-sig wallet, and all work is executed as bounties (like Colony-tasks). Yes, there are 3 roles: gardener, worker and reviewer, and we picked the concept up from the Colony whitepaper years ago
How we use Colony
The feature that we currently consider most desirable is the reputation that Colony can maintain. Until recently we have used a spreadsheet, but since Colony moved to the mainnet, we jumped on it and created our own.
Lacking a user interface to use Colony-tasks as intended, we went for a compromise and created a Bounty Payout contract utilizing the Colony payment feature. Then we integrated it into a fork of the Gnosis multi-sig.
- We added a Payout Bounty button:
- We created a flexible mask to define the roles participating in the task:
- If worker funds are held outside of the multi-sig, like Gitcoin, or BountyNetwork, then we use the
Reputation onlycheckbox for the worker, while still paying gardeners and reviewers directly.
… that’s it.
Thanks to Colony team for the hard work and to @auryn for pointing me to this forum
