I. Summary - Dear All,

As there had been 3 on-chain votes until now already and no one have made any proposals regarding any Common Goods Pools (CGP) payout, I thought I shall get the ball rolling. I’m sure the devs have tested the payout feature extensively in the test environment, but we should test it out in real life :). So, I would like to make a proposal of 10k ZP from the Common Goods Pool.

II. What - Proposal for a payout of 10k zp from the Common Goods Pool.

III. Why - Firstly to test the CGP feature in real life, secondly to get the ball rolling.

If it is just for a test, then what will you do with the funds and why 10kzp and not 10?

  • I am thinking to use the 10k zp to organise some competitions, trivia etc in the official Zen Protocol Telegram room over a period of few weeks and give away 400zp each to 25 winners (numbers subject to channge) details of which I will post later in the Telegram room.

  • As, there is a threshold of 3% of existing ZP to nominate a proposal for it to move to the voting phase, i personally think it’s not worth it for the community to move millions of zp to nominate for only 10zp payout.

IV. How - Distribute the funds by organising some challenges, puzzles, competitions, trivia etc.

V. Who - Chef will organise.

VI. Deliverables - Chef won’t keep the 10k zp for himself, will give away all of the funds by organising some challenges, trivia etc in the Telegram room.

What does the community think? Let me know in the comments here. Open for any other suggestions for any other use of the said 10k zp.


Sounds good to me. Is this considered the official proposal?

Welcome @Raisy to the forum. Better late than never :slight_smile:
As, nomination phase on-chain only lasts 1.5 days, i think it’s better to discuss any proposals here beforehand to gauge community interest.
Once the on-chain nomination starts and if there is enough interest in this proposal, i will then make a proposal on-chain for the said amount, with my wallet address as payout address.
And once it’s live on-chain, then i shall share the ballot id of the said proposal for the community to vote on in the nomination phase.

Good start. Let’s do it. Another idea can be to organize a competition for community goods for any sum (100k zp or more) to see what one can do with it. As in:

  • user A submits his plan what he plans to do with 100k ZP
  • user B does the same, etc
  • They include plans, and are responsible for it
  • Community votes for the best plan
  • User does what he promised to do (funds can be kept on a multisig with chef, user who won, community guy X as signers)
  • Profit… or none )
