We had the pleasure of speaking with Po-On on community initiatives at Goldfinch. Gateway seeks to establish a partnership with Goldfinch to increase community education, engagement, and recognition by onboarding its Community Team onto the Gateway Credentialing D-App. Goldfinch can use Gateway to issue its community credentials for use-cases related to the above and more, like on-chain activity.
Gateway believes Goldfinch is well positioned as one of the few Defi protocols truly bridging the gap between traditional and decentralized finance. Additionally, Gateway would like to increase general awareness of this ecosystem, knowledge of Goldfinch’s products, and contributor recognition for governance and community efforts.
Specification & Requirements :
This proposal will benefit Goldfinch socially by improving its product marketing and ability to recognize its various stakeholders (contributors, users etc.).
Gateway believes that web3 tooling should be easy to use, rewarding work, and drive immediate value to DAOs/organizations using it.
Gateway seeks to become a reliable partner to create credentials that can be used for reward mechanisms, determining governance voting delegation/weighting, and bringing transparency to work being done.
Gateway will provide Goldfinch’s Head of Community and Community Managers admins access to a dedicated “Goldfinch Gateway Space”. This will allow Goldfinch to immediately leverage the platform to issue modular credentials for education and governance. Soon, Gateway will have Twitter and Github integrations to also help the community increase awareness for new updates/AMAs and allow developers to show off their work.
The goal is to use various types of credentials to build greater models down the road. Initially, we will start off with education and community-focused credentials (including governance). Eventually, we would work with Goldfinch’s team to credential on-chain actions such as staking, lending, or investing in various investment strategies.
Increase the level of engagement, following, governance participation, and protocol usage.
Help community members build up their web3 native resume by allowing them to show certificates and contributions they have made for the Goldfinch community.
Down the road credentials will be used to build reputational models (like defi credit scores or governance community scores).
Time: Gateway and Goldfinch’s team will be working quite closely together to initially get credentials set up.
Yes; we want to issue credentials through Gateway.
No: We do not want credentials and recognition from Goldfinch.
Comments: If Gateway can deliver value for Goldfinch by the end of Q3, we would like to proceed with a formal proposal for a grant/payment.
