Discussions for CGP20: Community Appreciation Gifts

This is a thread for discussing CGP20: Community Appreciation Gifts.

UPDATE: Now that the proposal has passed, I would like to use this thread to announce community gifts on a monthly basis. We have created a form for which folks can submit nominations for community members that they think would deserve a gift: Community Appreciation Gift Nomination
As you can tell, the process is not as specified, and my hope is that we can learn as we go. If you have any feedback, please comment below or feel free to DM me.

Quoting from the CGP:

May 2020 saw the genesis of Celo the platform. But even before then, Celo the community has been an ecosystem from people all over the world believing in the mission of Celo and contributing to it. While much focus has been on folks that are employed by cLabs, there is a lot of effort that is currently not being appropriately appreciated more broadly. This proposal attempts to create a small channel for the community to express gratitude to its contributors.

The current PR for the CGP can be found at CGP [0020]: Community Appreciation Gifts by nambrot · Pull Request #154 · celo-org/celo-proposals · GitHub.

Appreciate the feedback!

I’m definitely supportive of this proposal. Showing members of Celo community volunteering their time, that their contributions are valued and appreciated is the right thing to do :raised_hands:

These grass-root efforts are the bedrock of any viable and lively community.

Amen!

Is this getting rolled out? Feeling the need for this right now - would like to send a $CELO kudos to some folks who have been very helpful with the CELO owners Telegram & Discord channels.

CGP20 has passed, thank you for the confidence!

We adjusted the form to encourage folks to leave some contact method for follow-up questions. If you recently nominated someone, chances are you forgot to specify who you actually wanted to nominate, so please submit again :slight_smile:

We have our first round of Gifts! They were announced during Kuneco (you can watch it from the recoding at https://youtu.be/m_DmU8asB8M?t=13409):

@Thundercloud777 on Telegram

Without them, the $CELO Platform Telegram channel would have loads of spam and unanswered questions. They have gone above and beyond helping manage the Telegram group 7 days a week.

Will Craft

Thank you Will for taking the initiative to document all our community calls and helping propose new governance templates that will push the limit on all that we do at Celo as a community. You did these things without anyone asking which is one of the best things to see in a decentralized ecosystem! Looking forward to seeing everything else you end up contributing in the Celo ecosystem

Zviad Metreveli

He is the exact type of community member you want to have on a project like Celo. He is building amazing projects that lower the barrier to entry on things like staking, building Celo dApps and is always there to answer questions. Low key, he’s the only reason I was able to stake Celo coins! He is also super involved in answering Discord questions.

Aaron Boyd

Aaron is an incredibly helpful member on Discord, answering questions not just about running a validator, but also about building applications on top of Celo. Additionally, Celo Cauldron has been a valuable resource to investigate block signing and attestation completions.

Quick technical question - are the 2500 CELO coming from the reserve? OR are they newly minted somehow?

They come from the on-chain community fund. You can read more about the original CGP here: celo-proposals/0020.md at master · celo-org/celo-proposals · GitHub

Thank you everyone for participating in Community Appreciation Gifts. I’m happy to announce the second round of gifts!:

He is always willing to help answer questions in Discord to new Celo-comers. Also, he is building incredible tools to help the ecosystem (CeloHub.org, Centro). Couldn't think of a more worthy candidate for this award

@JosArta

Sasha has contributed to the UX Audits as part of Celo Camp the last two cycles. To my knowledge, she has no other connections to Celo and has eagerly donated her time to these multi-hour sessions. I am deeply grateful for her expertise and for continuing to show up for the Celo community.
