I thought I was here around 1 year, but checking now the time, is half of that! That’s probably cause’ I’ve read some much stuff here, that I’ve felt very linked to the forum and the DAO.
I got very motivated with whole the DAO idea probably late 2019, then I was looking for solutions to monetary storage in my natal country (Cuba) and found about DAI… read more, found Vaults, voting portal, auctions… bought my first MKR, earned, loosed…
At this moment I feel very attached to the DAO, having the forum opened in one of my screens all the time. I vote in more of the polls here, in some on-chain, not all TBH (really would like to find more motivation to do it!). I read most of the discussions taking place, and learned a lot in the process!
I guess that bringing more people to the DAO is about sharing its goal, improving the interaction with common people (where we’re lacking a little IMHO), and ensuring there are monetary incentives as well. Vault owners are those who probably will want to learn more about MakerDAO (that was my second step after all), and could end as active community memebers. IMO, that’s probably the first entry point for new members, I’d love that we give more importance to that part.
What I hope to achieve? Well, to become a member of the DAO in the “strong sense”. Want to start cooperating with it, helping in what I know to do (building software), help it to achieve that milestone that I share with it: changing the current financial system! Long road ahead, but I definitely believe that MakerDAO has the bases set to be one of the big players in the financial system of tomorrow, one more opened, not centralized, and not obliged to follow rules of some specific governments… one which follow the shared rules of the mankind, fair, universal and without privileges.
