{"ops":[{"insert":"Blockada DAO is a DAO for funding blockchain meetups around the world. \n\nHistorically, getting any kind of funding in Ethereum required being friends with the \"OG\", the big players in the industry like employees of Consensys or Ethereum Foundation. It's hard to get any kind of support when you're an outsider, and this leads to highly centralized event locations like Berlin, San Fran, Toronto. We believe the event ecosystem needs to decentralize for the benefit of speakers, attendees, and partner spaces who could definitely use some more foot traffic!\n\nThis DAO focuses on covering basic expenses so that meetup organizers only have to worry about one thing - attracting good speakers and making sure there's a culture of learning. The less time an organizer needs to spend hounding sponsors for beer and pizza, the more time they can devote to putting a kick ass event together.\n\nAt the same time, the DAO has interesting mechanics embedded which let it alter the reputation of partner spaces and event organizers (as well as attendees) by rewarding attendance, good organization, and enthusiastic and supportive event venues.\n\nThe funds gathered via this grant, if successful, will be spent on:\n\nBuilding a simple UI for interacting with the DAO even without a central server. The UI will be locally runnable on anyone's computer without additional hardware or software. It will also be fully open source, of course."},{"attributes":{"list":"ordered"},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"Funding events when approved by the DAO's stakeholders"},{"attributes":{"list":"ordered"},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"\nAdditionally, should this grant become really successful, we have the ability to hire a full time person to handle all administration and moderation of this DAO as well as community outreach for $12k a year (that's the average salary in Croatia where this project is geographically based).\n"}]}
