Funnily enough, we hope to bring funding into the Aragon ecosystem for a change. We aren’t committing to any one vender to build out our designs, but obviously Aragon Black is ahead of the “curve” when it comes to building the first part of the Commons Stack.
We expect to produce a specification and request quotes from potential venders to build out our Augmented Bonding Curve and Conviction Voting… At the Top of the list for venders are Aragon Black, Autark and Level K… In fact we already got preliminary… sort of back of the envelope, quotes from Level K and Aragon Black. But there is the real world issues of who has time to work on these things so we will see.
I will say that because the Conviction Voting model is relatively experimental, and very few of the components exist already (unlike the token bonding curve) our current thinking is that starting out by making it an AragonApp might be a bit much for this unproven governance module… building the first CV as a stand alone smart contract (probably borrowing patterns like the ACL and Upgradability), and plugging it into the Aragon Fundraising App would be a leaner approach. Then we can iterate on that set up 2 or 3 times to tweak the designs, learn a lot and get it right, and then launch the effort for a full fledged Aragon App once we feel the idea is proven and the unknown flaws are exposed and dealt with.
Of course, if there is already an effort to build out some of the underlying components needed for uses within the Aragon ecosystem, this could change. I would have said the same for the Token Bonding Curve but the fundraising app is looking sexy AF! And looking at Autark’s Flock proposal, there might be some core componants coming thru the pipeline that could make it make sense!
