dHEDGE Contributor Guidelines


In an effort to further decentralize governance and protocol contribution, the dHEDGE EcoDAO will be taking active steps to open up contributor opportunities to the community. As such, the guidelines below aim to outline a clear and transparent framework that addresses the guiding tenets, how to onboard as a contributor, compensation structures and much more.

Guiding Principles

  1. The dHEDGE ecosystem is seeking independent thinkers and contributors who understand the vision of the DAO and share an eagerness to build out the protocol’s product and community.

  2. The EcoDAO will strive to achieve contributor transparency by creating an open contributor environment that is guided and iterated on by the dHEDGE community.

  3. dHEDGE will offer competitive and flexible rewards that can be dynamically adjusted with industry contributor demands.

How to Onboard as a Contributor

  1. Join the dHEDGE Discord: Join the dHEDGE Discord channel and introduce yourself to the community. Begin to contribute, understand and add value to the community.

  2. Express your interest: Join the #Contributor-Proposal channel in the discord and submit an expression of interest to commence as a contributor. Share your skillset and how you would like to be involved in the EcoDAO. The community and council will review and provide feedback on the initial expression of interest - before proceeding to a formal proposal.

  3. Submit your proposal: Visit the dHEDGE forum and submit a proposal that includes your relevant experience, what you propose to do for the DAO, your expected reward and your estimated time commitments.

  4. One week feedback period: The contributor proposal will remain open for feedback for a seven day period on the dHEDGE forum. The community and council will be able to review your proposal, provide feedback and outline next steps.

Contribution Types

Full-time / Part-time / Percentage period: Community contributors are welcome to engage the EcoDAO on a FT, PT or PP basis. Contributors must clearly outline in their proposal what they intend to work on for the relevant time frame. For example, a Solidity Developer can work for the full 40 hours per week and become a Full-time contributor. They will liaise with the development team to ensure they are contributing the proposed hours and are adding value.

Bounties: The EcoDAO welcomes one-off contributors who are interested in creating marketing content, educational content or anything else that adds value to dHEDGE. If you have created something, or have an idea that you believe will promote dHEDGE - submit proof of work or the concept to the forum or Discord. The community and council will then signal whether they believe it is value adding and will work with you on putting together fair compensation.

Contributor Compensation

Contributors must request the amount they would like to be paid for their work. The community are allowed to provide feedback on whether they believe this is reasonable or not.

Contributors will earn a split of DHT and USDC for their efforts.

Contributor Proposal Format - What you should Include

  1. A title/subject line with this format: (NAME) - Contributor Proposal - (Contribution Type) - (Date)
    Example: Mike Eli - Contributor Proposal - Council Chair - February

  2. A background outlining the context for making your proposal. This should include: the position you are in (e.g marketing, development, community), whether you are full-time/part-time/bounty, what you plan to work on, or what work you have completed.

  3. What compensation you are requesting, with some reasoning.

  4. Outline your prior experience either with dHEDGE or other relevant experience.
