Proposal Information

Proposal description:
TOUCH GREEN is all about exploring the potential of DAOs in promoting sustainability, decentralization, governance, Web3 culture and we think Giveth will be a perfect match. We love your commitment to innovation and sustainability, and we think that your support would help us make a huge impact.

TOUCH GREEN is fully managed by COMMIT DAO which is also the publisher of COMMIT, the ultimate web3 culture media. For legal reasons, COMMIT DAO will be supported by COMMIT MEDIA our Luxembourgish based company.

The original idea came from MCON2 last year. I thought it would be definitely great to create a similar event in the heart of Europe.

• What is it: 2 day DAO convention (we are still in the process with the venue)
• When: 7 & 8 September 2023
• Where: Luxembourg Ville :luxembourg:
• Why: I live here. The country is business-friendly, with a lack of events about blockchain, crypto and obviously DAOs, but there’s a huge community and a real interest from institutions. +160 nationalities, free public transportation, 2h from Paris and Bruxelles by train, 1h from Zürich, Geneva, London by plane and 2 hours from Barcelona, Lisbon and Berlin.
• How much: Free for all but, to avoid sybil posers we have implemented a low cost ticketing system. We ask all attendees for a small deposit (except from communities we agreed on a deal with). Attendees pledge a $30 deposit which will be managed by COMMIT DAO. At the end of the event every depositors gets back their money.
• How many attendees? Up to 500 (max)
• What happens if someone pledge and don’t come? COMMIT DAO keep the remaining deposits and a vote will pass on the use of these funds.

Proposal Rationale
At TOUCH GREEN, we’re bringing together blockchain enthusiasts, investors, entrepreneurs, researchers, academics, to explore the intersection of blockchain, sustainability, and DAOs. We’re going to cover a ton of topics, including governance, DAO toolboxes, decentralization, Web3 social apps, cypherpunk, and more. Plus, we’ve got lots of fun stuff planned in the pipe.

Expected duration or delivery date (if applicable):
N/A but we hope to close all sponsorships by the end July.

This is a really cool initiative, but bear market is real and the general vibe is that Giveth is not in a position to sponsor. Thank you for thinking of us though!

We are debating sponsoring ETHBarcelona, where we have a house and a community there… If we sponsor that, it will be the only conference we sponsor this year.

I had a podcast interview with Clément yesterday - maybe you could elaborate more for the crew here what a collab might look like without a financial sponsorship

As discussed with Mitch, it’s not a “pay-to-speak” convention. I think Giveth’s DAO as a lot to offer besides a sponsorship, and we’ll be eager to have you here for a talk and a workshop on managing a DAO and public goods.

The main purpose of TOUCH GREEN is to bring together DAOers to create a dedicated event and share knowledge, experience and thoughts on the future of DAOs. In this way I think that it would be greatly valuable to have core members of Giveth’s DAO at TOUCH GREEN.
