UPDATE: There is now a bounty US$250 +10ETH for this feature.
UPDATE: below is a more detailed spec of what we are looking to build. In short, this consists of two separate features - (1) Ability to associate Ethereum accounts with DAOhub account and track user token balances. (2) Include/exclude users from a group based on token balance.
- Currently no way to distinguish DAO token holders (DTH) from non-DTH on DAOhub. This is important information for users when weighing an another user’s opinion.
- Currently no way to gauge a users level of investment in the DAO. This is potentially important information for users when weighing an another user’s opinion.
- Noise from non-DTH.
- Spam (not really an issue as of yet, Discourse does a pretty good job of taking care of spam)
- User requested feature. Not a problem in and of itself, but this is a feature which has been requested by users from day one.
Users should be able to associate any number of ethereum addresses with their account by proving they control the respective addresses. This could be achieved through the following challenge response mechanic.
- User is given some single use unique information (hex code) and presented with a DAOhub Ethereum address.
- User includes unique information in transaction to the Ethereum address.
- Address that sends unique information to the DAOhub address is registered with the user’s DAOhub account.
- Repeat for multiple addresses.
DAOhub should monitor registered addresses, watching the tokens corresponding to the DAOs listed on DAOhub.
if user’s DAO balance > 0
addUser to group DTH
removeUser from group DTH
The DAO’s hub will have the following security permissions:
Admin: Create, Reply, See
Mods: Create, Reply, See
DTH: Create, Reply, See
Cost benefit analysis:
The solution proposed above inplicitly assumes that the cost of problems 1-5 above is greater than the beneficial contributions that non-token holders are making at TheDAO’s hub, (2) the sum effort that it will take for token holders to link their tokens to their TheDAO’s hub accounts (and minus future benefits of token holders who decide not to go through that effort), and (3) the cost of implementation.
This feature will also be required in order to enable some of the more advanced features further down the roadmap, including: token weighted polls, DAOhub reputation, liquid democratic moderation, etc.
Hi everyone, were looking to implement a feature we’re calling “token controlled permissions” over on our discourse forum (forum.daohub.org). Below is a quick rundown of functionality we require. Any feedback, advice is appreciated, I would love to hear from anyone with experience in solidity and discourse plugins. If your interested in helping out, reply here or drop me a PM. This project will be funded by The DAO, so it could likely turn into an ongoing relationship/job for the right dev.
Users should be able to associate an ethereum address with their account by proving they control the address (by signing a message, or some other yet to be determined mechanic). DAOhub will then monitor those addresses, watching the tokens corresponding to the DAOs listed on DAOhub.
In order to create topics and post replies in a DAO’s hub, users will have to be holding a minimum threshold of that DAO’s tokens.
This feature should be achievable via a custom discourse plugin which automatically adds users to a the DAO’s token holder group when the DAO token balance in their associated addresses exceeds the minimum threshold.
Users not holding the DAO’s tokens will have read privileges only.
User is given some single use unique information and presented with a DAOhub Ethereum address.
User includes unique information in transaction to the Ethereum address.
Address that sends unique information to the DAOhub address is registered with the user’s DAOhub account.
