PRTN Creators Mutual Aid
This proposal is to establish a mutual aid fund that in time will be able to support PRTN creators when they face difficulties or duress that impact their ability to create. It is also proposed now before PRTN is on the market as if it is established as PRTN culture it is more likely to take root and be a fund that can help us and our fellow DAO members should we need it.
Working in the creative sectors, and in web3, can be precarious. Freelance contracts provide little support for the worker or flexibility around circumstances that might impact delivery. Web3 bounties are speculative and unpredictable.
This is a first proposal towards the development of a safety net for creatives - initially PRTN members.
A feature of partnerships: if you want to bounty into PRTN, you have to put into mutual aid fund.
To create a sub-treasury that can be managed for growth as a fund that will disburse to PRTN members as agreed by a delegated committee to support emergency expenses related to their creativity.
PRTN treasury to move 5% percent of treasury into this sub-fund.
PRTN members who contribute 10% of the PRTN they were allocated(founders, contributors, core, etc…), in exchange for a “mutual NFT”. That NFT grants them power to vote/delegate on rules and disbursements from the fund.
Once PRTN is purchased by new members, % contribution reassessed.
A feature of partnerships: if you want to bounty/hire into PRTN, you have to put into mutual aid fund.
5% of PRTN tokens.
Expertise on multi-sig setup for the mutual aid fund.
Resource for development of NFT.
This proposal is made to the whole of PRTN rather than suggested and attracting members as subgroup because, in the interest of financial inclusivity, when PRTN sends the initial tokens to new members, PRTN could send their contribution to the mutual aid fund directly, saving members on gas fees.
The contribution from members who did not have to pay for PRTN is set at this level in keeping with our moves on equity.
