Did come work with Clue train manifesto


G - happy to letmichael take it M - I can do it sure but internally feel that Griff might be a better spokesperson (but dont wanna overburden) G - I can be there and field extras


Kris Human ventures/Onward labs shark tank project (biggest risk). HV is VC, OL is blockchain labs projects funded by HV.

Michael - were gonna talk with them Thurs, need to regroup. Onward labs are facillitaing and interested in Givet opportunities.

Dani - Wanna white label a token based giveth. Other projects that might help. Wanna support us in our long term goals, they love the dapp and community and wanna work together because of alignment. Have other things they might wanna fit in

Kris - is it a tv show?

Dani - show and platform, they vote on gamechangers with tokens (participatory shark tank). More votes generates tokens. Fiat getting integrated. End of season some of the cash pool goes back to voters and participants. Next steps: Lined up where giveth fits into an interactive platform. Micael and I will work with V to fit them together and find out what that looks from a Dev perspective so they can discuss resorcing, funding and directions.

Griff - is V interested in doing this through RSK or xDAI. Need to be platform agnostic. Lots of pro's through xDAI

DAni - multiple proposals.

Michael - tomorrow they will share their timeline.

Dani - they sent us a beautiful proposal. We'll share that with everyone.

Griff - if they wanna do token voting we're close to an Aragon solution. They're aligned with our vision so if we can move that way it would be cool.

Michael - talking MVP, they've explored Aragon and are very interested in the features that can bring to the table.

Griff - theres another validator on xDai that really wanna port aragon to there. Most of the moving pieces are starting to align that way.

Kris - lets set some time apart and discuss the strategy if we can :). Abby proposed based on shark tank and put our logic in the proposal. Good opportunity for the Dapps evoloution but we need a good battle plan.

Michael - agree, its a great opp to push the xDAI puzzle pieces. If they are interested in that then its would be awesome!

Griff - 7pm! any other fire sides






Griff - sorry I've not been around. Excited to kick ass and talk with us all again later

Loie - Enjoyed fireside. Excited about creative funding sources, great job all making these connections :) Hang out and work I like, please come along and hang while getting roles stuff done :)

Kris - thanks for nice meeting. Informative, thanks for updates. Shark tank sounds like a nice time for the Dapp team to shine. Looking fwd to a meeting and working out a solid proposal. Willing to help anyway possible. Kai sends love.

Bowen - Thanks for the good meeting and about to do a catchup. Love to know if anyones going Eth denver (bar griff and loie).

Michael - Thanks great meeting as always, thanks for taking time to feedback on Mzilla questions. Looking to catch up in Riot and move onwards labs fwd
