We made some serious progress towards becoming an Embassy for DAOs in the last season.
In our 2022 Roadmap, we outlined a plan to grow our role as the Embassy for DAOs, both online and at Node Zero. We are ahead of schedule in accomplishing those goals.
In Season 2 we ...
The community has expressed a clear interest in tangible steps towards expanding the decentralized city. We didn’t expect to expand to more nodes until 2023. But with clear progress towards our Embassy for DAOs including a fully booked Season 2 at Node Zero, node expansion is now on the horizon.
Suffice to say, there’s a lot happening in Cabin. In this article, we made it easy for y’all to vote on the governance proposals for the season. We briefly discussed the theme for our third season (Spring ‘22) and went deep into each guild’s plan and budget proposals for the coming season. Finally, we summarized our reflections of the previous season of Cabin, so you understand what we accomplished and to gain context on the various workings in the DAO.
Strapped for time and ready to participate in governance? Here’s a summary of all Snapshot budget proposals:
With that, we’re pleased to formally introduce ...
With node expansion as a core focus, Spring ‘22: Live, Love, Laugh, LARP as a City-State has 3 overarching objectives as an addendum to our 2022 roadmap:
In Spring ‘22, we want to LARP harder as a city-state. This means expanding to new nodes — a step to become a decentralized city, rather than a centralized node. We’ll also continue to develop theoretical frameworks for how a city could function (City as a Protocol) and build out city infrastructure (our NFT passports).
Let’s get into each guild’s proposals for Spring ‘22.
Looking back at Season 2, the guild had multiple wins. A few of which include: running multiple wildly successful DAO operator residencies, signing a lease for Node 0 (woop woop🙌) and hosting our first Build Week!
And the future is looking bright for Spring ‘ 22.
Here are the three specific quests for Placemakers in the next 3 months:
The Placemakers Guild is requesting $41,500 USDC and ₡3,390 to continue bringing to life the physical manifestation of Cabin’s decentralized city and to continue building out our node network Spring '22.
A lot of Season 2 was spent operationalizing the onboarding process. This made our onboarding process among the best in the DAO ecosystem, as well as setting the vibe of Cabin. Some wins from Season 2 include:
In Spring ‘22, the Community Guild has 3 main quests:
Some of the key results related to these quests include:
The Community Guild is requesting $33,000 USDC and ₡3,315.00 to meet the objectives described above and continue being the cultural backbone of the DAO.
The Media Guild has been consistently focused on crafting the narrative around Cabin and working with the top of the funnel to invite in countless exciting and skillful web3 operators into our ecosystem.
Let’s take a look at some Season 2 media guild wins:
And the sky’s the limit in Spring '22, where we’ll:
The Media Guild is requesting $30,000 USDC and ₡3,436 to continue scaling and creating impactful content for Cabin in Spring '22.
The main mission of the Product Guild is to build and deploy high-quality products needed to successfully operate a decentralized city. They are paving the way to build the infrastructure for a digital-native city.
Let’s look at some of the main accomplishments of Season 2:
Here’s what the next season has in store for the Product Guild:
The Product Guild is requesting $ 22,100.00 and ₡ 9,980 to support the work of the Guild and towards Cabin’s design and engineering goals for the season.
The mission of the Meta Guild is to progressively decentralize the DAO into the guilds. The guild’s function becomes redundant as the other guilds become more independent. As a result of the DAO’s progress, the Meta Guild would like to explicitly decentralize DAO operations in Spring ‘22 to the guilds and wind down its own operations after this season.
The Meta Guild is requesting $59,400 and ₡2,060 to cover Jon, Phil, and Zakk’s compensation. This includes an allocation for City Council retreats and a do-ocracy budget for the DAO. We’ll also be winding down the guild after this season. Jon, Phil, and Zakk will be focusing on other guilds and quests in the DAO.
The HODLers Convention was the place for all Cabin token HODLers to come and do their governance in one big gulp. This event, held last April 8, 2022, allowed token holders to gain context and participate in key Cabin governance decisions for Spring ‘22. This was held for regular DAO participants and for those who aren’t able to attend weekly meetings but would still like to inject ideas, weigh in, and hold the DAO accountable.
Check out the video to the full session below:
Every guild presented a draft of their budget and planning proposals at the convention. Based on feedback since the event, the core contributors — now called the City Council —is recommending a number of amendments to the presented budgets and proposals above:
USDC is for people who need to pay their bills primarily from the DAO. Cabin can't really support a lot of people earning USDC for part-time roles. And if we start a norm of that now, it will lead to a lot of pain down the road.
All of the roles that were <50% time in the proposal have been converted to Cabin compensation only. And the guild leaders have had discussions with all the people impacted by this. (To learn more about Cabin’s compensation philosophy, Cabin members can read this Clarity doc.)
Reducing the budgets prompted difficult but healthy conversations around priorities and tradeoffs within the guilds at the retreat. Every guild made significant cuts across the board, all in the spirit of keeping the DAO on solid financial footing as we start to build our decentralized city.
Creator Cabins is a decentralized city built by creators, for creators. We believe in bringing people together to collaborate both in IRL and digitally throughout our decentralized network of nodes. We stand for helping the web3 space to grow by fostering DAO2DAO collaborations and aggregating knowledge to act as an embassy for DAOs. We have a clear mission: To build a decentralized city with individual nodes spread across the whole world that empower creators to pursue an independent career and lifestyle. We build products for cerators to support their work both digitally and in real life by providing both physical and digital land. Our first node is located in Austin, Texas and all information regarding our second node will be released shortly. Our digital land includes Cabin’s Discord server and our social media profiles.
