3.Alchemy核心功能

3.1为什么开发Alchemy

Alchemy旨在寻求在大型组织内分配资源的替代方法。目前组织内通常由一小组高管决定组织内的资金分配。这种传统的预算方法有许多限制,Alchemy试图克服这些限制:

低效&僵化:

组织会议和委员会的成本非常高,通常只能做出少量决策。组织越大,建立的正式机构就越多。这使得组织机构变得十分僵化,员工自主性降低,决策放缓,最终导致创新放缓。例如,对400名企业人事经理的调查显示,现今他们做出一个招聘决策平均需要63天,而2010年为42天。这种低效率通常会成为组织发展的瓶颈之一,降低组织的决策能力,或迫使组织机构集中化,将决策权赋予极少数人。

自上而下:

分层、集中、这些决策过程中的弊端在当今的商业社会中比比皆是。虽然“扁平”的组织,高效的团队协作和员工授权现象变得越来越普遍,但这些新概念在资源分配流程中往往没有得到应用,并且涉及复杂的实践过程,因而这些新概念实施起来相当缓慢。

腐败:

当一个大型项目只有少数决策者时,贿赂利益集团和影响其决策变得极其容易。研究表明,导致许多大型项目出现腐败现象的主要原因是其项目的规模,而项目的复杂性、缺乏透明度和独特性则是次要原因。

3.2如何工作

1)授权社区成员任何人都可以向DAO提交项目建议提案包括项目细则和预算提案可以是任何项目,从承包商项目到政策变更

2)使社区成为精英提案通过社区投票通过的每个决策都是集体协作的产物投票权以“声誉”的形式分配给社区个人的声誉总数决定了投票的决定权贡献越多的成员可获得越多得“声誉”并通过提案奖励提议者

3)协调任意数量的用户在预测市场中,预测DAO可能会通过哪些提案,最热门的提案会“被提升”价值,Alchemy通过增加最符合价值的提案来处理大量提案

助推(boosted)提案更容易通过,而不是占51%的多数投票,提出建议的提案只需要相对多数即可,这样既消除了僵局

即使活动频繁,Alchemy DAO仍可以有效地通过价值一致的提案

4)提供透明度和安全性在区块链上处理的财务的和投票数据区块链是由世界各地的软件节点保护的不可更改账本记录是公开可用的,而且非常安全,区块链本质上是公开可读的,并且具有加密防篡改功能

4.信誉分布

DAOstack的管理协议具有高度的模块化和可自定义性,还可以作为信誉分布(和代币)的机制。对于Genesis Alpha,将使用Genesis协议,其中包括以下参数:

1)贡献者可以通过以下方式提高声誉:

创建被DAO接受的提案

投票赞成被DAO接受的提案

支持被DAO接受的提案

2)贡献者的声誉可能会因以下原因而下降:

未能遵循他们的原则创建并已被DAO接受的提案

创建未被DAO接受的提案

投票给一个没有被DAO接受的提案

由于DAO的权限是去中心化的,因此DAO的任务无法从上至下执行。相反,实现Genesis这样的任务有两个关键部分:

1)通过共同利益来协调利益相关者。

2)产生连贯的社会共识,或者用博弈论的术语来说,就是人们自然会采取行动的“谢林点”。目前,他们建议将精力集中在几个核心利益相关者群体上,并在一年后达到以下目标声誉分布:

路线图

Alchemy Earth是Alchemy的最新版本,Alchemy Earth是一个平台,用户可以在该平台上直接与DAOstack支持的DAO(去中心化自治组织)进行交互,从而制定有关预算,政策以及社区所需的任何协作决策。

用户可以在平台上执行三种基本操作:提议,投票和抵押。

5.资金

Genesis需要资金才能吸引开发人员和贡献者社区。在现阶段,Genesis每月从DAOstack那里获得相当于40,000美元的资金。DAOstack和Genesis共同追求的目标是,到2020年第一季度末,通过其他实体的捐款,将每月的资金增加至7万美元。Genesis 1.0的成员将根据DAO的任务管理这些资金。

如前所述,他们认为Genesis完成任务的最佳方法是在游戏中形成利益相关者的共识社区,该群体在此使命中拥有最强的既得利益。在以下模型中,价值被设计为传递到GEN代币,因此,任何促进DAOstack协议及其周围DAO生态系统功能和采用的GEN持有者都将为GEN实用程序的发展做出贡献。

他们介绍了两种参与方式,都涉及锁定GEN代币和在Genesis1.0版中获得信誉(投票权)的组合:

1)锁定GEN以获得声誉

每月举行一次声誉拍卖,为期一年,利益相关者可以决定他们希望锁定GEN代币的金额和锁定时间。在每次拍卖中,每月铸造的声誉在GEN lockers之间进行分配,与GEN锁定的时间和数量成正比,最多可以锁定24个月。

2)资金模块,将更多资金投入Genesis 1.0

他们已经着手开发改进资金模块。该计划打算以每个代币的预定义价格铸造LGN。对于此模块,已缴纳的资金将发送到由Genesis 1.0控制的合约中,并配置为在预定义的期间内将资金逐步释放到GenDAO 1.0的钱包中。

1. Introduction

Alchemy is a Dapp (decentralized application) built on top of DAOstack, a platform for decentralized governance of DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations).

Alchemy is a budgeting and resource-allocation tool for decentralized organizations. It is an interface that enables thousands of individuals to coordinate towards a common purpose, by proposing and deciding on how to spend funds in alignment with their goals and values.

Some example use cases for Alchemy include decentralized venture funds, charitable funds, innovation funds, a budget proposal system (like Dash but more sophisticated), or prioritizing features for an open-source project.

3. Alchemy Core products

3.1. Why did build Alchemy

Alchemy aims to support an alternative method of allocating resources within large organizations. Today, it is usually a small groups of executives who decide on the allocation of funds within organizations. This traditional approach to budgeting has a number of limitations that Alchemy seeks to overcome:

l Slow & Rigid:

Organizing meetings and committees is expensive, and often only a small number of decisions can be made. The larger an organization becomes, the more formal structures are typically put in place. These lead to a decrease in agility and less autonomy for employees, slowing decision-making and, ultimately, slowing innovation. For example, a survey of 400 corporate recruiters has shown that hiring decisions today take an average of 63 days, up from 42 days in 2010. This often serves as a bottleneck that reduces the decision-making capacity of an organization, or forces a very centralized structure where decision-making power is only given to very few people.

l Top-down:

the drawbacks of hierarchical, centralized, decision-making structures are becoming very known in today’s business world. Although “flat” organizations, agile teams and employee empowerment are becoming increasingly common, these new concepts are often not implemented when it comes to resource allocation processes, and often involve complex human practices that are hard and slow to implement.

l Corruptible:

When there are only a small number of decision-makers for a large project, bribery and influence on decisions by interest groups becomes easy. Research shows that the leading indicator of corruption in public megaprojects is first and foremost project size, whereas complexity, lack of transparency, and uniqueness are secondary causes.

3.2. How does Alchemy work

l Empower community members

ü Anyone can submit a project proposal to a DAOProposals include a project description and budget

ü Proposals can be anything from contractor projects to policy changes

l Make community meritocratic

ü Proposals are passed by community voteEach decision is the product of group-wide collaboration

ü Voting power is distributed to the community as “Reputation”An individual’s Reputation total dictates the decision-power of their vote

ü Members who contribute more earn more ReputationPassing a proposal rewards the proposer

l Coordinate any number of users

ü Alchemy handles huge numbers of proposals by boosting the most value-aligned proposalsParticipants in a prediction market predict which proposals a DAO is likely to passThe top proposals become "boosted"

ü Boosted proposals are easier to passInstead of a 51% majority, boosted proposals require only a relative majority, eliminating gridlock

ü Even with very high activity levels, Alchemy DAOs are able to efficiently pass value-aligned proposals

l Provide transparency and security

ü Financial and voting data processed on a blockchainBlockchains are immutable ledgers secured by software nodes all over the world

ü Records are both publicly available and extremely secureBlockchains are by nature publicly readable and cryptographically tamper-proof

4. Reputation Distribution

DAOstack’s governance protocols, which are highly modular and customizable, act also as the mechanism by which reputation (and tokens) are distributed. For Genesis Alpha, They will be using the Genesis protocol, which includes the following parameters:

l Contributors can increase their reputation by:

ü Creating proposals that get accepted by the DAO

ü Voting in favor of proposals that get accepted by the DAO

ü Staking in favor of proposals that get accepted by the DAO

l Contributors’ reputation might decrease by:

ü Failing to follow through on a proposal that they created and has been accepted by the DAO

ü Creating a proposal that does not get accepted by the DAO

ü Voting for a proposal that does not get accepted by the DAO

Since authority in DAOs is decentralized, a DAO’s mission cannot be enforced from the top down. Instead, there are two key parts to achieving a mission like Genesis’s:

Align its stakeholders through common interests.

Generate a coherent social consensus, or in game theoretic terms, a “Schelling point” around which people will naturally act.

For now, They propose to focus on a few core stakeholder groups, with the following target reputation distribution after one year:

Roadmap

Alchemy Earth is the latest version of Alchemy, a platform where users can interact directly with DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations) powered by DAOstack, making collaborative decisions about budgeting, policy, and anything else necessary for their organization. There are three basic actions users can take on the platform: proposing, voting, and staking.

5. Funding

Genesis needs funding in order to attract a strong community of developers and contributors. At its current stage, Genesis receives monthly funding of $40,000 USD equivalent from DAOstack. The goal, shared by both DAOstack and Genesis, is to increase funding up to $70K/month by the end of Q1’2020 with contributions from other entities. Members of Genesis 1.0 will govern these funds in line with the mission of the DAO.

As stated prior, They believe the best way for Genesis to accomplish its mission is to form a community of stakeholders with skin in the game, the group with the strongest vested interest in this mission. In the following model, value is designed to flow through to the GEN token, so any GEN holder that promotes the functionality and adoption of the DAOstack protocol and the DAO ecosystem around it is contributing to the increase of the GEN utility. They introduce two ways for participation, both involve a combination of locking GEN tokens and receiving reputation (voting power) in Genesis 1.0:

l Lock GEN for reputation

Monthly reputation auctions will be held for a year in which stakeholders can decide how much and for how long they wish to lock their GEN tokens. In every auction, the monthly reputation minted is distributed between all GEN lockers, in proportion to the amount and time GEN locked, with the ability to lock for up to 24 months.

l Funding module to bring more funds into Genesis 1.0

They have initiated work on a funding module that needs improvement. The plan is for LGN to be minted at a predefined price per token. For this module, contributed funds are sent to a contract controlled by Genesis 1.0 and configured to release the funds gradually to GenDAO 1.0’s wallet over a predefined period.
