This is a cool way of rewarding governance, yet the engagement of the community is still lackluster.

I agree! Curious why you think engagement is lackluster @ejbarraza. Since the SourceCred trial, engagement is measurably up, as we detailed in a recent report on the trial so far. What is your point of reference?

Maybe because I am accustomed to the engagement level of Yearn when I see many posts with a single reply or no reply at all it makes me wonder what is wrong. MakerDAO is certainly one of the most used DeFi apps so why the lack of interest in its governance? Maybe I’m comparing Apples to Oranges since Yearn is very new and Maker has been around for many years.

Not that familiar with Yearn, but yeah, it has that new hotness, mooning token. Hard to compete with that on engagement. Though all projects mature (assuming they survive), and then need sustainable incentives to engage participants. I’d like to think SourceCred is good at that. Paying people for the value they create is a novel experience for most :slight_smile:

@s_ben I believe @ejbarraza was referring to on-chain polling and executive voting–but yes, also lack of participation/excitement like YFI.

I think it boils down to the Ethereum community not knowing that MakerDAO will incentivize ETH heads/& others, if they help shape the future of Maker. Hence, I’m not sure many know that SourceCred is available, or that All are incentivize to help grow and build the future of Maker–of course, IMO.

But all-in-all I am thankful that Maker has implemented SourceCred–as stated, it is super duper awesome.


Feeling is mutual! The Maker community has been awesome and we hope to continue working with the DAO.
