Retro Citizen Rewards: Retro Funding 3

Thank you!

A huge thank you is due to citizens for their continued dedication to experimentation and iteration of Retroactive Public Goods Funding (Retro Funding). In round 3, the Collective rewarded more than 500 builders with 30m OP tokens for their impact to Optimism.
Citizens dedicated more than 30 hours on average to voting in Retro Funding 3, more than 40 citizens volunteered to review over 1000 reported applications for application rule violations and collectively citizens submitted more than 10,000 votes in Retro Funding 3.

Retroactive Rewards for participation in Retro Funding

The Optimism Collective rewards Token House delegates and citizens retroactively. Retroactive rewards are a core pillar of the large scale experiment to establish a new, regenerative economic system within the Collective. Feedback on retro citizen rewards is extremely helpful in refining what will be the primary reward mechanism in the Collective.

Consistent with the retro governance rewards framework, the below criteria recognise contributions of citizens to Retro Funding 3.

Criteria Definition Reasoning OP
Participated in RetroPGF 3 Citizen has voted on 58 applications or more. Broad citizen participation in RetroPGF is critical to its success. While badgeholders were not expected to vote on a minimum number of applications, badgeholders that fall within the top 70% of participants (as measured by number of applications voted on) are rewarded for their efforts. 2,000 OP per eligible citizen
Volunteered to participate as a reviewer or lead reviewer in the Application Review Process Citizen has participated in the application review process. The application review process was key to ensuring only eligible applications proceed into the Retro Funding voting process. 20,000 OP will be divided among reviewers based on the number of applications reviewed. Additionally, the lead reviewer, which did not participate in reviewing individual applications, is rewarded 30% more than the highest rewarded reviewer to reflect the outsized responsibilities and workload of the lead reviewer.
Created a useful List Each List is rewarded for its usefulness based on available data. Lists are rewarded points based on number of citizen interactions (e.g. events triggered) and number of citizen likes received (citizens could like a list to signal its quality to other citizens). Points were given as follows: List has ≥ 5 citizen events = 1 point , List has ≥ 10 citizen events & ≥ 2 citizen likes = 2 points, List has ≥ 20 citizen events & ≥ 4 citizen likes = 4 points, List has ≥ 40 badgeholder events & ≥ 8 citizen likes = 8 points, List has ≥ 40 badgeholder events & ≥ 16 citizen likes = 16 points Lists were a core part of RetroPGF 3, allowing citizen to leverage the expertise of other badgeholders when casting their own votes. 40k OP to be split among qualifying list makers based on the number of points.
Disclosed Conflicts of Interest Citizen has disclosed their conflicts of interest on the forum Disclosing possible conflicts of interests is core to maintaining the transparency and legitimacy of the Retro Funding process 100 OP per eligible citizen

You can find a spreadsheet with more details on the allocation of rewards here.
Consistent with other grant allocations, all citizen rewards will be subject to a KYC and claims flow process. This round of retroactive citizen rewards will be allocated from the “Unallocated” portion of the Ecosystem Fund, not the Governance or Retroactive Public Goods Funding Token allocation.

Citizens will be contacted via email on the 11th of March with instructions on how to claim their rewards.

The Foundation currently determines the criteria and amounts for retro governance rewards. The Foundation will gradually remove itself from this role in future Seasons, potentially aided by a future Budget Board that would propose criteria and/or reward amounts.

Thankyou @Jonas

Citizens RPGF3 exhibit qualities and characteristics that are worthy of emulation by other members of the Optimism community. Their dedication, expertise, and positive attitude are valuable assets to Optimism

I didn’t participate in RetroPGF3 for the rewards, but I was disappointed to see that my contributions were valued significantly less than others based on the foundation’s criteria.

I spent a ton of time reviewing applications and putting thought into how to allocate the 10M OP in rewards. I intentionally had a much more concentrated list of projects that I selected, because I felt that concentrating on the highest impact projects was a good way to distribute rewards.

In talking to others, it seems that RetroPGF has rewarded a long tail of projects at the expense of rewards for higher impact projects, and given the way rewards are calculated and distributed, me having a slightly more concentrated list would be balanced by those with a much wider list, in a way that I believe is aligned with the RetroPGF mission.

My list ended up being under 35 projects. I was unaware that the Foundation wanted us to vote on 50+. I even spoke with 2 badge holders (who voted in PGF2 about my strategy to have a smaller list and they liked the idea). I spent many many hours reading and liking applications on Agora, and then even more time on whittling that list down to a concentrated group of projects where every project received meaningful rewards.

I put a lot of thought and time in this retroPGF round, and I believe I’m a good steward. So it didn’t feel great when I saw that my contribution to this round was valued significantly less than everyone else’s because I took a different approach from others in the community.

As retroPGF grows in size it might be worthwhile to reconsider how these rewards are allocated.

While I ended up qualifying for the full participation reward, I do wonder about adding an incentive for voting on many projects vs a curated list, especially as the number of votes per project was the deciding factor in funding for this round.

I think this could have unintended behaviour longterm regarding how to allocate voting as a badgeholder.

Congrats to all and best of success for this amazingly Optimistic community!

Just remember, You are not the only one who feels that way, I’m glad though you speak up in reguards to all of this though, you make a very valid point

I agree that it seems odd to have an arbitrary cutoff for the rewards based on the number of projects a voter allocated to.

If plurality of opinion and thought processes is valuable then surely we want a mixture of different methodologies, which will obviously result in different numbers of projects getting selected.

Echoing the thoughts above, I voted for about a dozen projects because that’s how many projects met my standards for quality. This way, I can allocate more of my voting power to the high quality projects that are having an outsized impact, focusing on quality over quantity.

I have no problems with those choosing to vote for as many projects as possible, however an arbitrary cut-off like this sets a bad precedent and incentivizes citizens into voting only a specific way - against their preferences or expertise. Diversity and freedom for how citizens vote should be a fundamental tenet of the Citizen House IMO.

Hello @Jonas and team - I would like to also express my agreement with the thoughts stated above.

I purposely voted on 43 projects, concentrating amounts on the ones I believed would have a broader impact. This was done by design, and multiple hours of work were spent researching.

While the reasoning behind voting on a minimum of 58 proposals wasn’t stated, I’m inclined to believe it was not arbitrarily chosen and would like to suggest that if any additional rationale can be posted - please do so.

Big fan of everything we are collectively doing here, it’s a pity that designs and policies can sometimes not be ideal.
