ON THE BALLOT: The Cartan Group Is Asking The DAO To Extend Its Contract And Expand Its Scope

The Cartan Group, the company the ApeCoin community elected to administer the governance process for Ape Improvement Proposals and voting, has an AIP on the ballot this week to renew its contract and expand its scope going forward.

AIP-183 titled “Cartan’s Proven Track Record & Continued Commitment to Advancing the ApeCoin Ecosystem” is an ecosystem fund allocation proposal written by The Cartan Group’s Brian Tang.

In AIP-183, Tang asked the ApeCoin community to extend the Cartan Group’s contract with the DAO for 12 months and increase the DAO’s monthly allocation to the Cartan Group from $150,000 to $250,000 +20,000 $Ape.

With the extra money per month, Tang explained that the Cartan Group will expand its scope and work to make the DAO run more “efficiently and transparently.”

“The main goal of the next year is to expand our community of ApeCoin holders and work through a phased approach that realizes ongoing improvements for the ApeCoin community,” Tang wrote. “By offering the most engaged community members jobs with a proper training, reporting structure, accountability, benefits and bonuses, we will expand the community moderation team. Through the expansion of the community moderation team, we will propose amendments and adjustments to the AIP process for community review and approval that would be intended to work more efficiently and transparently. This includes having all interactions between the analysis team and the author be fully public for all to see. We will also investigate and implement a soft support level within Discourse to verify the community actually wants to see an AIP go to vote to reduce the unnecessary use of community resources and administration of putting something up for vote that the community does not support.

As well, putting together an AIP is a daunting effort for the author or project team. In an effort to help every author answer the question, “how does this grow the APE ecosystem?”, Cartan will deploy an analysis team who will help AIP authors create well-structured business models, with a proper risk identification model and revenue model.”

The window to vote on AIP-183 open’s tonight at 9 P.M. EST. The Bored Ape Gazette is working to bring you continued coverage of this AIP and will let you know more about it later this week. Stay tuned for updates!
