Ep. 06 [PolygonDAO] On chain reputation tooling - the next frontier for DAO community growth & retention ~ Marco Moshi (Grendel)The Clique Podcast
DAOs that scale massively in growth face immense challenges when dealing with the horde of wannabe contributors. The implication for faking identity or work credentials is high & when dealing with the frontier of tech such as DeFi can be a minefield of trouble. Marco Moshi (Grendel), Operations Lead, PolygonDAO makes the case for a reputation layer to be the key for solving DAO’s current challenge of community onboarding & retention.
We talk about:
Why he chose the name Grendel as an inspiration from the antagonistic dragon in Beowulf
His life before crypto & how consuming Bankless content was the game changer for his entry to DAOs, the vibrancy of the DAO space & enjoying his contributions to BanklessDAO & Forefront
How he sought to decentralize & implement transparency for Polygon’s grants program for projects building on top of them
Why DAOs should focus on pain points that can dominate the web3 space & how such efforts require a lot of contributors
The parameters & definition for an on-chain reputation layer & the problems which the lack of credentialing creates for communities, how pseudonymity creates headaches, especially during onboarding in Defi
We also discuss how enabling a reputation layer for communities should facilitate better contribution & learning within communities.
