Navigating Proposals in the Circularity Finance DAO Ecosystem

Circularity Finance's DAO structure provides a robust framework for both centralized and decentralized governance, empowering community members through financial or non-financial proposals. Here's a detailed explanation of how DAOs within Circularity Finance can utilize this structure to create and manage proposals effectively.

Types of DAO Proposals

Centralized Proposals:

  • Proposal Creation: In a centralized model, only the deployer of the DAO contract—the founding member or the designated shareholders—can initiate proposals.

  • Voting Rights: NFT memberships, representing a stake in the DAO, grant holders the right to vote on these proposals, ensuring that decision-making power is distributed among stakeholders.

Decentralized Proposals:

  • Proposal Rights: A more democratic approach allows any NFT membership holder to put forth ideas and proposals to the DAO community.

  • Voting Mechanism: Token holders within the DAO have the right to vote on these proposals, fostering a direct and engaging relationship between NFT holders and token holders.

Crafting Financial and Non-Financial Proposals

Financial Proposals:

  • Multi-Signature Wallet: These proposals involve a multi-signature wallet where funds will be deposited if the proposal reaches a consensus of approval.

  • Value Release: Upon approval, the smart contract governing the proposal responds by releasing funds according to the agreed terms, ensuring that financial transactions are executed as per the collective decision.

Non-Financial Proposals:

  • Open Discussion: Proposals of this nature focus on facilitating open discussions among DAO members without any financial stakes involved.

  • Transparent Voting: The voting process is transparent, allowing members to cast their votes without compromising their identity or exposing their voting preferences.

DAO Proposal Submission

To submit a proposal within a DAO on Circularity Finance, members go through the following process:

  1. New Proposal Submission: Enter the title and details of the proposal, and upload any relevant documents, such as a PDF, to provide additional context.

  2. Setting Expiry: Determine an expiry time for the proposal to ensure timely decision-making.

  3. Creating Financial Proposals:

    • Opt to add a multi-signature wallet if the proposal is financial.

    • Specify the minimum number of signatories required to validate transactions.

    • Enter the address where the funds should be released if the proposal is approved.

    • Submit the liquidity amount to be added to the proposal vault.

  4. Finalizing and Voting: Review the details and submit the proposal for community voting.
