TalentDAO to launch series of governance experiments piloting voting tool Zodiac bot

Announcement: Calling all DAO junkies, governance gurus, and research lovers to participate in a series of governance experiments being conducted by the talentDAO research team in partnership with Collab.Land and RaidGuild.

What is it?

A series of governance experiences testing various voting strategies and reputation systems. The experiments will leverage the Discord based Zodiac bot module and test the following voting strategies:

  • One person one vote

  • Reputation weighted voting

  • Quadratic voting

  • Ranked choice voting

The results of the studies will inform Zodiac product development and help inform DAO governance and reputation research. Both research content and tooling developed will be open source.

What is Zodiac bot?

The Zodiac bot module is a new tool that extends Discord-based voting to execute transactions on-chain over a Gnosis Safe. The bot leverages the Zodiac pack of DAO modules that extend Gnosis safe functionality. For more context on the origins of this project check out this article.

  • Help shape the future of talentDAO

  • Get paid to participate
