{"ops":[{"insert":"Civitas is a coordination platform for bootstrapping communities to get work done! Anyone in the world can launch a community and its currency, which is tradable with any other community token or Ethereum token in the Bancor Network.\n\nOnce a community and its token are established, community members vote to distribute community funds generated from recurring membership dues to projects using meritocratic governance. This encourages members to contribute to gain a voice in the direction and decision making in a community.\n\nGoals"},{"attributes":{"header":2},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"\nI. Allow anyone in the world to create a community of value\n\nII. Allow anyone in the world to complete work for a community\n\nIII. Allow anyone in the world to participate in a community’s economy by purchasing or earning a community’s token\n\nIV. Allow anyone in the world to participate in a community’s governance by earning reputation (which represents their voting weight) from completing work\n\nSpecifications"},{"attributes":{"header":2},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"\nBy standing on the shoulders of giants in open source we get a lot out of the box. Many primitives of Civitas already exist in standalone components that, when combined, realize the platform. These components include:\n\n"},{"attributes":{"link":"https://about.bancor.network/protocol"},"insert":"Bancor"},{"attributes":{"header":3},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"\nThe economy of the network - provides continuous fundraising and liquidity for a community. Also automatically valuates community token prices and allows for swapping tokens within and outside of the Civitas Network based on the value of those currencies.\n\n"},{"attributes":{"link":"https://colony.io"},"insert":"Colony"},{"attributes":{"header":3},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"\nThe workforce of the network - community project owners create bounties to be paid in a community’s token, held in escrow until the task is completed. Contributors earn reputation equal to the monetary value of a task.\n\n"},{"attributes":{"link":"https://aragon.org"},"insert":"Aragon"},{"attributes":{"header":3},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"\nThe foundation of communities - reputation holders create and vote on proposals to: allocate funds to projects, change membership dues, signal community decisions, revoke membership, ad infinitum. This can be extended for specific use cases by installing and/or configuring existing arApps.\n\nRelease Milestones"},{"attributes":{"header":2},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"\nI. Network of Communities (COMPLETE)\n\n- Launch communities with a bonding curve fundraising token\n\n- Swap community tokens with other tokens in/outside the network\n\nII. Community Fund Allocation\n\n- Members spearhead grant proposals for projects to be funded from the community fund\n\n- Vote on proposals using Holographic Consensus weighted by a member's reputation\n\nIII. Community Projects and Tasks\n\n- Once funded, project owners create and payout tasks with the funding\n\n- Contributors earn reputation from completing tasks effectively\n\nPost Release Milestones"},{"attributes":{"header":2},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"\nIV. Legal Communities\n\n- Integrate OpenLaw legal contracts to incorporate a community as an LLC\n\nV.

One highly anticipated example includes The LOA built on Moloch which serves as a fundamental experiment of permissioned membership and fund distribution but is limited by the opinionated nature of Moloch.\n\nCivitas utilizes battle tested platforms such as Bancor, Colony, and Aragon to compose a modular, configurable, and extendable DAO as a Service solution that provides at its core: the choice of permissionless/permissioned membership, continuous fundraising/liquidity, automated reputation management, reputation weighted voting, and decentralized fund allocation with swappable voting mechanisms - enabling coordination for the masses.\n"}]}
