The weekly SourceCred payouts are here! A hosted instance of SourceCred running on the Maker forum can be found here.

For details on opting in, see Opting in to Sourcecred/Wth is SourceCred?.


This is the first week DAI was distributed based on the new payout formula proposed last week in Changes to our Implementation of SourceCred:money_with_wings:. See the Cred Stats section below for analysis of how the change affected this week’s payouts.

A new feature, developed in collaboration with the SourceCred working group, is currently being tested! For a sneak preview, checkout the lastest Community Call, where the SourceCred dev responsible for building the feature (@topocount), presents an overview, and the community asks some great questions.

The SourceCred working group is currently exploring how this feature can be used, and aims to have a post up soon detailing the feature and proposing changes to Maker’s instance.


This week $5,000 worth of DAI was distributed based on Cred scores. Navigate to the DAI Accounts tab of the Maker instance to see your current DAI balance and total DAI earned.

Cred Stats

The chart below shows the change per contributor this week using the new formula.

As expected, the new policy is more heavily weighting contributions made in the last few weeks. Our intention is to make the algorithm more responsive, with the goal of incentivizing more consistent contributions and contributions from newer contributors. Below is a chart showing the top Cred earners in the last four weeks.

The overall trend in total Cred created (a proxy for work), appears to be resuming its upward trend :chart_with_upwards_trend:
