AIP-89 Titled“Improved Delegation Experience" Is On The Ballot This Week At The ApeCoin DAO
An Ape Improvement Proposal to update the ApeCoin DAO’s voting experience is on the ballot this week.
AIP-89 titled “Improved Delegation Experience,” is a process AIP that was submitted by ApeCoin Board Member Maaria bajwa.
Bajwa’s goal with AIP-89 is to make it easier for $Ape holders to delegate their votes and for active DAO contributors to apply to be delegates for their peers.
“Many $APE holders don’t have the time to participate in governance and would prefer to delegate their votes to a peer,” Bajwa wrote. “The current Snapshot delegation system is opaque and unhelpful because users need to know the wallet address of the delegate, and there is no easy way to identify how the delegates will govern.”
To make it easier for $Ape holders to delegate their votes to another user, Bajwa proposed the DAO create a dedicated place for delegation.
“Delegates will answer a few basic questions about how they would govern, and delegators will be able to filter and search through their responses to find a delegate aligned with their interests,” Bajwa wrote.
Bajwa estimates that this new delegation system will take up to 12 weeks to create based on how complex the architecture and tooling ends up being and cost up to $150,000 USD. Bajwa will act as a Project Manager for this AIP and will not be paid, according to her proposal.
