[READY][GF: Phase 1 Proposal] Karma Delegate dashboard

1. Presentation

We are an officially recognized Tooling Governance Committee, responsible for assessing proposals related to tooling and infrastructure (wallets, bridges etc.).

2. About the project

Karma is a dashboard to show DAO delegate activity and rank them by that activity. They are already being used by other DAOs, notably the gitcoin DAO to help token holders decide on who to delegate their tokens.

The proposal is for the project to create a similar dashboard for optimism delegates and governance.

3. About the following

Karma submitted a proposal on the 6th of September: https://gov.optimism.io/t/review-gf-phase-1-proposal-karma-delegate-dashboard/3411. Various delegates interacted with the proposal including a committee member (@lefterisjp).

4. About the proposal valuation

In this part, we focus on the following aspects:

  • Added value (good to bad): good. Having an Optimism dedicated dashboard would help token holders with the decision on who to delegate their tokens to. Could also provide insight to delegates themselves about their activity.
  • Impact or expected usage (high to low) low: This proposal will only impact token holders who want to delegate their tokens and won’t affect Optimism as a whole.
  • Current Status [Development stage/¿Open Source?] (early to ready) early: The project already has dashboards ready for other DAOs, but the optimism one is not yet ready. Code will be opensource. The proposal is to fund development of this dashboard’s frontend
  • Expenditure plan and distribution (appropriate to inappropriate) appropriate: After a query from our committee member the team provided a budget breakdown that makes sense.
  • Amount requested (high to low) low: The amount seems good for the effort needed

5. KPIs and impact tracking

The best way to track the impact of this proposal would be to:

  1. Have the Optimism dashboard implemented
  2. Perform a user survey to the optimism community to provide feedback on the dashboard and see if it helps them or not. It would be nice if the Karma team performed such a survey.
