A lot of people have been asking me things like this lately “where do I find out more about RaidGuild, what do you do with the pledged funds, how do raids work”
So I drafted this quickly as a TL:DR
How Doth RaidGuild Raid
RaidGuild is A Decentralized Collective of Mercenaries Ready to Slay Your Web3 Product Demons. Yet, we are even more than that, we are community built around a Moloch DAO, made up of members of many other communities.
We support the development of open-source tools for the good of the human experience. We beleive in the power of open-source to improve coordination and make a positive impact on the planet. Thus, we ship things that we beleive will help expand the use of open-source technologies, we work to create opportunties for expanding the audeince of P2P technologies such a Blockchains, DAO’s, etc.
We don’t just talk about cryptocurrencies and decentralized technologies, we use them, build them, and share them with others everyday.
Why Pledge, Where do My Funds Go ?
The reason that we ask members to pledge is to ensure that all members of the Guild have Skin-in-the-Game. The funds are used for internal RIP’s that any member can put up for a vote using the Discord channels and an on-chain vote. All proposal must receive support in the form of rough consensus before being put on-chain, any member will voting shares has the right to block a proposal if they disagree with the proposal or the use of those funds.
Since RaigGuild is a MolochDAO you are allowed to
RageQuit your funds at any point in time without the approval of other members.
How to Raid with The Guild ?
There are many ways into the Guild, surely more ways will arrise in the future as we expand. At present these are the easiest routes to become a member:
Pledge: To pledge you must purchase 10 DAO shares by heading to our Moloch DAO if your proposal is approved you’ll be granted the 10 shares you requested and become a full voting member.
Apprentice: To apprentice you must earn your way into the Guild picking up issues in the public channels marked #apprentice. You’re contributions will be tracked and recorded until you reach the minimum amount to receive a single share. From there you will be expected to earn your remaining 9 shares through existing raids.
