Experimentation of two-way bridges between Aragon and Colony.
Colony and Aragon exceptionally fulfill their respective focuses (reputation and flexible governance). With that said, Colony would currently greatly benefit from a flexible governance system - which Aragon excels in. For Aragon, beginning work on integrating the two platforms will be an essential first step to ensure the viability of fulfilling the Expert Networks Nest RFP by testing the use of Colony reputation within an Aragon organization.
- Template that automatically launches a colony that is associated with the Aragon organization
- Allow an Aragon organization’s Agent to move funds between funding pots
- Base voting weight in an Aragon organization on the user’s Colony reputation
Using a combination of Aragon Agent and Colony’s reputation mining oracles we intend to build a two way integration between the platforms where one’s voting weight towards proposals in an Aragon organization is based on the their respective colony reputation, and then those proposals (if passed) execute an action in the colony (currently limited to moving funds). See the AllianceDAO write up, Aragon organization and corresponding Colony as a proof of concept, where the Aragon Agent is the root owner of the colony and uses the Aragon MiniMe token as the colony’s native token, allowing for governance over minting/burning as well.
