Weekly SourceCred distribution, funding update

The 26th week of SourceCred trial 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?.


With the passing of the November Governance Cycle Bundle, the SourceCred Funding Declaration of Intent has been ratified :partying_face: As detailed in the the SourceCred Pilot Extension post, the SourceCred trial will be extended for an additional six months, during which time details of a technical integration can be worked out. This will include experimenting with the algorithm to determine optimal parameters, creating a process whereby parameters can be determined and ratified by Maker Governance, creating a process whereby Cred scores can be calculated and communicated in a reliable and trust-minimized way, and building an integration that allows tokens to be distributed directly from the protocol.

:warning: WARNING: :warning: Cred scores and payouts may see volatility in the coming months as we tweak the algorithm and payout parameters. We still have a lot of work to do before the system is optimized enough to “ossify” , producing predictable payouts.

In case you missed it, starting in December (next week), payouts are increasing from 2,500 DAI/week to 5,000 DAI/week :money_with_wings: For more details and motivations behind the change, see Increasing SourceCred Payouts.


This week $2,500 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.
