While defining the future of our DAO operations, governance, membership, product, treasury, and communication how can we create new avenues of value generation and meaningful engagement for the rest of our community?
Being part of the Protein Network is the number 1 utility for our members if we provide them with opportunities to form new ties that catalyze action and collaboration that go beyond our DAO operations.
This proposal is about starting a new pod that will serve as the platform and destination to spotlight our community’s stories and experiences, curating a community-shaped program of members-led sharing sessions and roundtables, aiming to spark initiatives, projects, and collaboration among members.
What is needed (for now):
- the creation of a pod
- define PRTN allocation for contributors and speakers
- members willing to host an event/seminar/talk/workshop about a specific aspect of their expertise or experience.
Entering a high-potential network like Protein offers the opportunity to tap on a broad variety of skills and people. The first utility of being part of Protein, is being part of the Protein network itself.
Being a member means having access to people that could be your future friends, mentor, and partners and Protein role is to serve as a platform for people share similar values and align with the good growth manifesto, not only to find their calling, but to find or form novel structure of support.
How can protein become a basin for organic and permissionless collaboration?
How can members connect and inspire each other, forming new ties and building the foundations for mutual support structure?
Building trust and respect among members is critical to establish relationships and ultimately partnerships. Sparking discussion and debate around the different cosmos that surrounds our individual members is one way to build trust and respect using generosity as the medium to form new relationships.
Offering our knowledge, providing learning opportunities, will contribute to form collective knowledge, ultimately shaping the cultural identity of our community, and hopefully helping us to better embody and represent our good growth manifesto.
I personally do not have a plan figured out in detail, and I do not intend to sit down and think how this could look all the way through. Let’s not talk about roadmaps before we actually get hands-on, and we can sense and react, and only then define the future steps.
What I am proposing is the creation of a pod, a defined group and a defined space to incubate and nurture the future of collaboration for our community.
The future of collaboration starts by knowing a little better our community, what are the interests that resonate more with our members, what experience, skills, and aspiration we have as individuals, professionals, and as a collective.
The act of sharing to the protein community the single experiences of members, can let us not only strengthen the literature around good growth, but most importantly can provide a multitude of conversation starters to our community members, with the hope that conversation will lead to collaboration.
“Typically studied as single-celled organisms, microbes are known to form large multicellular communities known as biofilms”
This analogy is a little counter intuitive, and should be discussed.
As our teams are currently defining the infrastructure of our community, what we are lacking are grassroots visions and ideas, individual initiatives and proposal that are not seeking funding to start with, but partners and supporters that can move ideas further.
In the future, the pod could facilitate the support that members collaborative projects might require.

Yes: These initiatives are worth funding from Protein Treasury
No: We’d better allocate the $PRTN requested here for other initiatives
Abstain: I don’t understand financial implications / don’t want to vote
