Weekly SourceCred distribution (payout increase)

The 27th 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?.


:warning: WARNING: :warning: Cred scores and payouts may see volatility in the coming weeks and 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.


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

Total Cred created (a proxy for work) continues its weekly uptrend. Is “the doubling” (payouts increasing from $2,500 to $5,000 DAI a week) already priced in? Or will Cred break ATH of ~4000 Cred? :eyes:

This week’s increase appears primarily driven by OGs with high Cred scores picking up the pace. Below is a chart of the top Cred earners in the last six weeks Welcome to the top 10 @yaronvel!

Great to see the progress of this incentive structure. Anecdotally speaking, it does feel like more people are getting actively involved.

Yeah, I hardly ever see opportunities to post anything myself. There are superb technical contributors, insightful theorists, cheerleaders, and the occasionally humorous posts. I’m generally intimidated into silence by the quality of discussion. :sweat_smile:


False humility will get you no Cred @psychonaut! You are a heavy hitter par excellence!

Kidding aside, it is cool to see the uptick in participation, new contributors come in. Also always open to critiques or issues people see arising. Always room to improve.


Yeah, lots of lurking here too.
