{"ops":[{"insert":"Govrn and Peeps Democracy have partnered to build DEPO DAO to fund the future of decentralized politics. We want to be able to support truly collaborative open-source efforts that are non partisan from the beginning and remain that way to the end. By funding and encouraging open-source projects, we can start to break down the political barriers that currently restrain us from real progress.\n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"Why are we starting this?"},{"insert":"\n\nAs we’ve been working in the Civic and Political Tech space, we’ve noticed several common traits:\n\n-Most new innovative solutions in Civic and Political Tech space are still focused on Web 2.0 solutions for the current state of politics;\n \n-Most of the funding for new applications comes from partisan sources with specific political agendas (not great for real experimentation); and\n\n-Funding is limited for these projects, which encourages solutions to close wall their resources and discourages collaboration.\n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"How do we make this happen?"},{"insert":"\n\nWe want to be able to build a community around decentralized politics experiments. That starts with 1) funding micro grants for open-source projects committed to experimenting with decentralized politics and 2) hosting meetups to bring buidlers in this space together to work on the problems that will define democracy 2.0.\n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"How does this actually take shape? "},{"insert":"\n\nWe already have a landing page at "},{"attributes":{"color":"#2892ff"},"insert":"depodao.com"},{"insert":" and are setting up a PeepsDAO at "},{"attributes":{"color":"#2892ff"},"insert":"peepsdao.com"},{"insert":" to collect DAI and coordinate our efforts. Now we're looking for support from the Gitcoin community to help us build a stash of funds for supporting the best open-source projects in the space. All funded projects will be chosen by members of the DAO and must publish their source code under an open-source license on github. \n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"Guiding Principles:"},{"insert":"\n\nOur guiding principles are simple when it comes to what we'll support. Projects will need to be: \n\n-Multi-partisan or non-partisan (can’t just serve one party); \n\n-Inclusive of radical ideas for politics with more democracy + decentralization; and/or\n\n-Flat organizations where funders and developers collaborate to buidl a better modl for society.\n\n*NB: PeepsDAO will not take any platform fees on any funds submitted to the DAO via Gitcoin Grants. \n"}]}
