OPEN: Assist the Building of 3D Governance

Ambition #5: Pocket has the healthiest culture and governance of any DAO

One of the leading successes for Pocket Network has always been the focus on creating an anti-plutocratic governance system. This was recognised by Messari and others and the DAO has been a source of pride for Pocket.

With Ambition #5 being focused on revamping and expanding the DAO governance system with the implementation of 3D Governance, this socket is aimed to help PNF + the DAO build out 3D Governance for Pocket.

My background is in the design of incentive systems, where I have worked for Fortune 100 companies and hold a Patent in the space. Additionally I have worked for PNF in a trial capacity to help with the design and build of 3D Governance.

This Socket will continue my work with PNF, assisting in the design, creation, testing and modification of 3D Governance for the Pocket Ecosystem.

Creating a healthy environment and set of tasks for Governance inclusion is imperative to the long term successful functioning of the DAO.


Working primarily alongside Ben but with likely additional assistance with/to Zak, in the strategy, design, build and testing of 3D Governance. To include suggested best-practise on Governance Task and reward design, writing of tasks, testing and feedback of existing tasks, incentive mechanism design and collating feedback. Review would consist of similar deliverables that have already been provided to PNF in the evaluation, design and rewrite of the Community DAO and DNA quests.

Monthly I’d expect to tackle a new section of 3D governance (Citizenship, Staker, Builder etc) as well as contribute to the overall architecture of governance. This can be reviewed and upcoming tasks discussed in a call with associated PNF members. This timeline would be dependent on PNF and those developing 3D Governance to create content or approve my creation of specific content to build each block of 3D Governance.

I’ll be making a monthly report here of my progress, although as I’ll be working with PNF on all tasks, they’ll have a clear view of my monthly impact ‘in real time’.

Type of Socket:

This is an Initiative style Socket, asking for $2000/month. I expect this to be a 3 - 6 month long Socket, depending on 3D Governance implementation and feedback.

Committment to “Default to open”:

I will work in the open and self report monthly. I will work closely with PNF, who will be able to monitor my contribution and provide feedback as needed.

Historical Impact:

I have been active in the Pocket Ecosystem for more than 2 years. I have a full time job within Pocket, as well as having worked for PNF on multiple initiatives. I have written several proposals, including dropping inflation from 4000% → 8%. I am a senior member of the community and believe I’ve shown a strong track record of commitment to Pocket.

Thanks for jumping in here Cryptocorn! Excited to have you working with us on some of the upcoming governance mechanismsm.

Per the recent changes, this socket will open Feb 1 and be paid in USDC. Can you drop an ETH wallet address here for us?

@b3n for visibility.


@Cryptocorn we need an eth address please!
