The Panvala Caucus is excited to publish our draft recommendations for Batch Seven of Panvala’s grant program. 1,899,401 PAN will be released from Panvala’s token supply on July 31.
Panvala’s mission is to subsidize communities with corporate sponsorships and Bitcoin-style inflation subsidies. Bitcoin inflates its money supply to subsidize the mining work that secures the Bitcoin network. Panvala inflates its money supply to subsidize whatever we want. Panvala’s token supply matched Gitcoin Grants donations at 12.9x last quarter, and if Bitcoin’s track record holds, we will be able to continue these large subsidies for over a decade. We believe we can share these subsidies with as many communities as possible.
The Panvala Caucus is Panvala’s version of Ethereum’s Core Devs: we make recommendations that Panvala can accept or reject. We currently have 22 members that work together to make recommendations that we think represent the consensus of PAN token holders. We want you to join us! If you’re interested in joining the Caucus, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Feedback on this draft recommendation is welcome! Leave comments on this thread with your thoughts. We intend to submit our recommendation on-chain on Friday, June 5.
Panvala League Matching Budget
Following the successful donation matching round on Gitcoin Grants last quarter, we introduced a staking program for communities to earn subsidies for the work they choose. Five communities are participating with staking clusters for this quarter: Commons Stack, Hashing it Out, MetaCartel, DappNode, and DXdao. We’ve allocated 75% of the quarter’s budget to matching Panvala’s league of communities.
Anyblock Analytics: Panvala Dashboard Customizations
We are happy to share our dashboard we from Anyblock Analytics created and will be hosting from our the Batch Six grant: https://insights.anyblock.tools/public/dashboard/f1f79ca2-ddeb-498c-a3fe-05ca22d47665
It visualizes important metrics with regards to donations and voting power distribution.
But our current Metabase visualization proved to be too generic to include tailor-made calculations for a major Panvala metric, the Multiplier.
That is why we plan to apply for a second grant which as a deliverable produce a second dashboard focused on the multiplier.
We plan to show it as a moving average line chart, and possible even integrate the comparison to the Bitcoin multiplier (depending on timing of having our Bitcoin node integrated into our tech stack).
We’d also set up a hosting environment this kind of charts (probably based on Python with Plotly+Dash) to share it publicly.
This new dashboard could increase understanding and visibility of the key multiplier metric of the Panvala project, and also prove that is calculated based only on blockchain data.
To spread the message about Panvala’s mission to generalize Bitcoin’s economics to subsidize whatever we want, we continue to produce marketing materials for Panvala. We also purchase ads and pay for marketing tools to support these efforts.
