It’s really amazing I got to find a DAO like this, I’m a newbie that love anything research and stuffs, though I’ve worked with some DAO’s, but I find SCRF so unique. I have some questions for the SCRF team:

  • how can a new SCRF member gain cred?

  • is the SCRF team thinking of a plan to have its own token?

  • Is there a possibility of the SCRF running into bankruptcy soon ?


Hi @Freakytainment, thanks for hopping on the forum and for the questions.

One thing I want to point out is that we are not trying to be a DAO at this point, though we do place a lot of emphasis on growing our community and enabling them to get more involved.

  1. Please refer to this github doc that layouts SourceCred at SCRF
  2. No, as of this time, we are not planning a token. We want to see how much is possible via a forum, grants, and community prior to considering other incentive mechanism structures
  3. Not at this point in time. We are in a fortunate position of having a committed, well-capitalized funder who is sticking with us in the current market conditions

Hope to see you around in the discord and on the forum!
