HOPR DAO v0.1 Incentive Payout and Analysis
The first governance experiment for HOPR DAO v0.1 ended a few weeks ago. This is the first in a series of posts analyzing the results and explaining some of the thinking behind the experiment, the lessons learned, and what changes and improvements we’ll be making for future experiments. This first post will focus on the incentivization scheme, where 50,000 HOPR tokens were awarded to DAO participants based on their contributions.
Creating an incentivization scheme for something as subjective as governance discussion is a daunting challenge. There are countless factors to balance, and only limited metrics you can use as a proxy for nebulous concepts such as quality of contribution. Someone who made 100 posts could be an active and thoughtful contributor to the debate, or they could be a raging troll.
