TEC AUDIT REPORT 0001

TRANSPARENCY WG Period: January 01 - March 31 of 2022 Presented: 04-may-2022 Contributors: Zeptimus, Iviangita, Ratio13, enti, EFRA
​

​

1. Processes

This section covers the cultural procedures that are relevant to the community at large.

​

1.1. The Advice Process

The TEC is a Do-ocracy, using the Advice Process as the first step to any decision. When someone needs to make a decision that affects members of the Commons, they seek advice from other TEC members and those with expertise. Taking this advice into account, the decision-maker decides on an action and informs those who have given advice.
The information on the use cases of the Advice Process is documented and accessible through the TEC Handbook.
Proposals and decisions that went through the Advice Process are here.
Status: Active

​

1.2. Submitting funding and cultural proposals

​
1.2.1. Funding proposals
When requesting funds for projects that aim to advance the field of Token Engineering and are aligned with TEC’s mission, vision and values, an individual must submit a proposal to Conviction Voting.
For financial requests that will be submitted to Conviction Voting, proposers must get a signal from the community by sharing their proposal for the Community Advice Process at least a week prior to submitting it to the DAO. Once the feedback received (if any) is revised, they can move it to the Proposal section in the forum and then to the Conviction Voting app on-chain. All Conviction Voting proposals should use this template.
The terms & conditions for submitting funding proposals are documented and accessible here.
Status: Active
​
1.2.2. Cultural proposals
Cultural proposals that don’t require funds and can be resolved in two weeks can be submitted for Advice Process, if there is a general feeling of awareness and acceptance by the community on what is being executed. A cultural proposal should stay open for advice for up to 2 weeks. After this period, it should either be marked resolved with updates, or moved to the proposal section to be sent to Snapshot.
This information is documented and accessible here.
Status: Active

​

1.3. Onboarding and offboarding stewards

The purpose of having a process for onboarding and offboarding is to define clear boundaries around stewardship roles in the TEC. Offboarding is not necessarily a permanent action. Former Stewards are welcome to return when their personal and professional obligations permit.
The process for onboarding and offboarding stewards is documented and accessible through the Stewards WG Manifesto.
Status: Active

​

1.4. Requesting credentials

Some of our contributors may need to request access to TEC accounts on these platforms so as to efficiently perform some tasks that are necessary for our operations and will help us push our mission forward. The Transparency WG built a simple process for contributors who would like to request access to TEC platforms.
The original process was presented to the community in August 2021 and was revised in January 2022 as the Transparency WG stewards found some areas for improvement. The updated process is documented and accessible through this forum post.
Status: Active

​

1.5. Praise quantification

Praise Quantification is being done to turn the praise received by every individual into $TEC as a form of reward for their contributions to the TEC. The complete Praise Quantification process involves a series of steps: onboarding quantifiers, placing them in a pool, randomly choosing a number of quantifiers for each praise quant period, and the actual quantification that is being done on the Reward System Dashboard.
This current process is totally different from the old process from 2021 in which only 3 select people were quantifying the praise manually on a Google Doc sheet. The new process started in January 2022.
The detailed Praise Quantification process is documented and accessible to the community in this forum post.
Status: Active

​

1.6. Moving funds through LASERTAG

Allocations of $TEC from the Initial Buy-in for both the strategic partnerships and secondary market liquidity use cases will be custodied together by an entity known as the Liquidity And Strategic Employment Requests Token Allocation Group (LASERTAG). LASERTAG comprises 7 members under a 4 of 7 Gnosis safe multisig required to authorize the disbursement of tokens.
The purpose of LASERTAG is to execute the terms of all proposals that specifically address the funds in that multisig and successfully pass via Snapshot.
This process went through a transparent voting process and is documented here.
Status: Active

​

1.7. How to Purchase $TEC

$TEC is a token that is native to the Gnosis Chain, and can be purchased directly with wxDAI (wrapped xDAI). There are many ways to get the wxDAI tokens you’ll need to purchase $TEC.
The process of acquiring $TEC tokens is well documented and easily accessible to anyone in our Gitbook.
Status: Active
​

​

2. Voting Schema and Results

The Commons utilizes various voting methods. These include: Single Choice, Ranked Choice, Conviction Voting and Tao Voting. In the sections below these methods will be defined as per the TEC Handbook or platform of choice. Additionally the sections below will explore various measurements, primarily Average and Median values, for the various voting schemes based on data collected from the two primary platforms in use; Gardens and Snapshot. Quadratic voting is currently paused until an identity solution can be implemented.
The reference document for metrics and results can be found here:

​
3.2.1. TE Fundamentals (TE Academy)
This proposal was created 25-Jan-2022 asking for 50,000.00 WXDAI and the money flow can be checked here.
TE Academy is building the first bachelor-level education program and NFT-based certification, open job-boards and matchmaking activities for projects seeking Token Engineering expertise. Via this offering, we’ll define standards for this new discipline. Additionally, NFT-based certification opens the door for new value flows in TE education and research.
This proposal is sharing Weekly progress on the community call and has milestones for the year that can be checked here.
Milestones accomplished during that period:
  • More than 1000 sign-ups
  • Alpha testing groups
  • Discord onboarding
  • Partnership with Consensys.io​
  • Token Engineering website updates
​
3.2.2. Gravity WG 6 month funding proposal
Gravity asked for 51,000.00 WXDAI on date 01-Feb-22 multisig is holding 39,950.00 XDAI on date 31-March-22. That’s 11,050.00 XDAI spent in this period. It’s keeping track of the work using DeWork and with updates on the forum.
Gravity’s mission is to foster the practice of nonviolent communication, empathy, understanding and management of conflicts in decentralized communities, to facilitate human coordination and build a culture of trust between peers. Gravity aims to be its own commons in a year and TEC is bootstrapping the economy.

3.2.3. TE Consilience Library - 0mega WG
This proposal was created 04-Mar-2022 and did not move any funds yet.
This initiative of the 0mega WG will create a 3-phased multidisciplinary library on token engineering to provide a learning and research environment for our community and a β€œliving log” of the co-creative process emerging in Omega.
This funding proposal is to facilitate the first phase. In the first phase 0mega WG contributors will build a library that has curations from subject matter experts with a multidisciplinary approach. In the second phase, we will open the library to public contributions. Also, we will reward quality contributions at that stage. If the library is liked by the community we will initiate phase three which will bring further development in UX.
This proposal will keep accountable to the community with weekly 0mega Working call, and updates on forum.
​

​
3.2.7. NumFocus Donation
This proposal was created 10-Mar-2022 asked for 25.000,00 WXDAI and did not move any funds yet.
NumFocus is a non-profit that provides funding and support for the open source organizations which maintain this software, but these organizations are criminally underfunded by the web2 organizations which profit massively by their use.
A 25,000 xDAI donation to NumFocus was given with the guiding principle of funding small developer grants and special projects aimed at growing the intersection of token engineering and open source scientific computing software, a guiding example of how web3 doesn’t just talk about supporting open source, we do it!
This initiative will keep accountable to the TEC posting on our forums after 6 months.

​

3.3. Operations

In this section we will be accounting every proposal that runs under the category of operations in the TEC.
