Kudos DApp in review

#1

It’s been 4 months since the launch of the Kudos DApp. Since then, we’ve allocated 151,000 SNT, and 55 participants have made 441 individual kudos transactions (you can see the leaderboard below).

Currently each contributor gets a budget of SNT 500 per week ($11), with a monthly cost of ~SNT 72,000 ($2k). NB: we recycle unallocated tokens, so the overall cost is slightly less than the number of participants multiplied by the weekly allocation amount.

We currently have both core and community contributors as participants in the DApp, and the smart contract doesn’t differentiate between them, both groups are allocated the same budget.

It’s time to revisit our initial objectives, take stock, and make a plan for what comes next.

My questions to you are:

  • What would you like to see happening with the DApp next?
  • What (if any) changes would you make?
  • Do you think we should adjust the amounts and/or frequency of SNT being distributed?
  • Would you continue with the current practice that all contributors (core & community) can join freely, and receive the same budget? How do you see this scaling?
  • If you don’t use it, why is that?

We could also get creative and change things about how the DApp works, e.g. stipulate that the most kudos’d person in each week collects all of the remainder of the unallocated pot of money for the week.

Would love to hear your ideas, cheers!

I like the concept, I think it’s good for morale. I know I feel good when someone votes for me.
To be honest I feel like my allocations are kind of high.
I feel like anyone should be able to join but there should be some criteria for who gets a vote. I’m not sure what that criteria would be.

It would be wonderful to allocate multiple kudos in one go, instead of doing individual ones simultaneously… meaning I’d like to give kudos to different individuals for different reasons all in a single dashboard. It would lower the amount of time I spend doing this each week, as well as help me rationalize my allocations.

Also, some more dashboards on different views of leaderboards would be great, to help bring recognition to the deeds and people.
