WIP 1: Community Projects Royalty Fee

Returning Value to the Community Treasury

Income generating projects funded by the community treasury should return a portion of earnings back to the community.

This proposal is not intended to force all projects to be income generating.

Creating a more sustainable treasury is key to the success of the project. This will allow the community to continue funding more interesting projects and potentially grow the treasury past it currents value!

Projects developing within the WAGDIE ecosystem are benefitting from the work done by the team as well as the community. Direct funding of community projects also enables builders to offset risk and recoup development costs prior to launch.

The value added for building on top of WAGDIE warrants a return of a portion of earnings back to the treasury.

Proposals with earnings potential will agree to share at least the minimum agree upon percentage with the treasury. This can be accomplished using on-chain methods (i.e. splitter code in smart contracts) or through off-chain agreements.

Steps to Implement
Decide on if there should be a minimum split between project builder and treasury.
Snapshot vote to codify this amount
Create framework to provide projects and approved implementations.

This proposal is mostly policy based and can be implemented right away if it passes.

Overal Cost - 0 USDC cost.

On that note. If this goes to a snapshot vote, I think 20,30,40 and maybe a kicker of 0 should be on it.

Even though 20 seems to be winning now, we have a very small sample size of participation. (7 voters so far)

Considering there’s only 7 votes on this so far, maybe someone could create a Conclave twitter account, which updates with the important discussions on here. Maybe this will remind people to check the conclave more regularly.


Might be better suited for the Discord but a more accessible reminder def has merit

60% for the builder, 40% back to the Conclave


@Icculus How do we move this on snapshot?

All the following Conclave Representatives have agreed as well: @Dontfeedthewolf, @M3RL1N, @hersilence.eth, @josiah.peace

What is the structure planned for this vote?

I was hoping we would have a % agreed upon and it could be a simple Yes/No/Abstain.

Set a deadline for this poll here.
When it concludes, push it to snapshot with only the winning percentage.
Options: Approve / Disapprove

wait, doing the poll here is the issue, no one is interacting with discourse. it gives you the exact same result if we just put the poll on snapshot right?

Only difference between the snapshot vote and this is that there’s discussion here, and snapshot conversation is more in-the-air.

If we’re not going to determine best percentage, and then vote a yay/nay, then by all means move to snapshot.

Agreed, that’s why I suggested the twitter. (I see it’s been added to the discord, thanks) With this one it seems to be ready to move to snapshot.

We have had discourse and fear that not enough are participating in the poll and if we draw more attention, ask them all to participate on % then vote on snapshot: yes, no, abstain we are asking them to vote multiple times on one thing.

We think it’s best to just have a 20,30,40 or no/0% vote with this proposal on snapshot.


I would love to see this go on further and developed more. Trying to create irl tangible growth I think is important to fund to help grow digitally. Would be nice to see those doing that get a little help or boost to kick start it. And then in return give royalties back to the community wallet

Sounds good, lets get the vote up with this structure.
