We currently have discussions around vote delegation and proposals; in the course of such discussions, the following was said:
This calls into question what it means to be a “DAO member”. The post further says:
This would seem to suggest that a voting weight of 25,000 vBNT constitutes “DAO membership”. This is all fine and well; but what does that actually mean? Can I, for example, list it on my homepage as an accomplishment/former employment?
What responsibilities/obligations does such membership incur, and what privileges–aside from personally submitting proposals–does it grant? Can I rent an office in the name of the DAO and hire employees? This couldn’t make them members of the DAO, but rather associates of it; and how do we ensure that those people are paid, if we find that it falls under our collective responsibility (rather than that of the individual DAO member making such employments) to do so?
Are there answers to these questions (and related others yet arisen)? We shall discuss them here, so there’s a record of it here for future readers. I think it’s important that there’s a visible, public consensus about this.
