For August 2023, contributors were paid in stable coins by Griff (DAI, USDC and USDT on Polygon). This is a proposal requesting reimbursement.
Griff is a GIV maxi, and to facilitate the payments of stable tokens to our contributors while we still build a better treasury management system, he pays people in xDai and asks for reimbursement here. Hopefully this process will cause upward pressure on the GIV price as our contributors use xDAI to buy GIV, instead of the opposite, where our contributors get paid in GIV and then sell the GIV to pay bills.
Also, while we sort out a streamlined process for payments, we believe this is the efficient way of paying people on time and without delay. Should there be better alternatives, your suggestions and feedback would be greatly appreciated.
For this month, we paid 42 Giveth contributors. Details of the paid contributors are as follows:
|Name||Number of Hours for the month|
*Plus $27 for research expense (purchase of a book)
**May and June Hours
***Feb and June Hours
Please note that most of the hours reporting can be easily accessed by contributors in Clockify, while all final hours can be found in this sheet.
We have unpaid contributors for this month. We will pay them in the next month since hours are too minimal, preferred by the contributor or pending time report confirmation: Dani
For August 2023, Giveth earned $25,287.08 from the technical partnership with General Magic (GM). Non-developer contributors who are working with GM projects have the same invoicing arrangement.
Praise to these Giveth Unicorns who brought in revenue to Giveth through providing their services to GM:
- Mohammad Ranjbar
On a separate note, the compensation of GM contributors who works for Giveth goes to the GM wallet (this is indicated in each of their Giveth work agreements). Instead of Giveth receiving the revenue earned, this will be deducted from the amount that Giveth pays to GM contributors. If there’s any excess, GM will need to pay Giveth any amount due.
