I received an email from Trebor Scholz, co-founder and Director of the Platform Cooperativism Consortium (PCC) requesting financial support for their 2019 activities. I thought it could be a good proposal to put forward to the newly approved Community Funding DAO. PCC is not directly related to Aragon or DAOs but is in the adjacent cooperative + platform economy space. I think there could be useful crossover potential between our communities.
Here’s a website with more info about what PCC is working on: https://platform.coop/about/consortium
Given the budget of the DAO and the amounts PCC is requesting for funding I propose that the Community Funding DAO allocate 2000 DAI to PCC. If there is support for this proposal then I can ask Trebor if he would be willing to experiment in accepting DAI directly since it looks like the portal on their website will only accept card payments.
