12% on Compound

Compound is killing it
Good model for DEX traders no fees — having fees from holding Ether
If deposits are highly fluid
Require of DEX might require deposit first before using in order to make money
Would users be OK with this?
cDAI or rDAI — stake who the interest goes to — eg fund a charity
Kevin: interest works with staking / deposits
Makoto: ETH NYC staking $30 worth of ETH
Needs to be DAI
Calculated that $18,000 — $45 of interest
More ETH in a contract is a security risk
About 10% of people never get their Kickback returned
Could I have Kickback memberships which are perma-staked
Megan: DAO like a Foundation endowment — enDAOment
Lili: kind of fun - evolve into something that isn’t luck
Build business model on top of opportunity cost — pyramid scheme
Idea: DAO with a stated mission — interest is used to fund grants etc - reputation
Reputation in DAOstack
Sebastien: Pay for a service, privacy preserving — need someone to pay for gas
Even 10% might be enough to fund things

Paying with compute — eg PoW
Data as Labour

Megan: Tried to integrate subscriptions into Veriledger, weren’t able to.
Idea - industry for profit closed source companies — percentage of revenue to open source projects.
Discourse blog post on how they give back to open source that they use: Discourse Gives Back 2017 | Blog
Jamie: something like a patent
Where software is built, and it’s not open source, until the team is paid
Sounds like DRM that people also hate
Lili: will make an iteration slower?
Guy: Sounds like an ICO or a promise?
Boris: Hapi license for access to new versions https://hueniverse.com/on-hapi-licensing-a-preview-f982662ee898

_Probably shouldn’t live here, Boris started a page on the Ethereum Wiki _
ECF - don’t have money AFAIK
Dominance assurance contracts

Annet: Filter for appropriate Grants
Kevin: was the grant used?
Who decides: daostack — transparent
