RA022312 - ETH Denver Volunteer Amendment

In May 2023, the Grants/Bounties/Retrospective Awards committee approved RA022312 (ETH Denver Volunteers) for a total of $13,500. This award will be distributed equally among the members of the Rocket Pool community who volunteered for a shift during the ETH Denver event in March 2023. It is important to note that committee members had to exclude themselves from the reward in order to comply with RPIP-18 and ensure a fair and transparent decision-making process.

The GMC is seeking feedback from the community regarding whether or not they believe it would be appropriate for committee members to be included in the award. Your input and perspective on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

  • Yes, include them
  • No, keep them excluded

It is good that the GMC recused itself from receiving payment in approving the RA. Having said that, I hope that this heatcheck poll will show strong community support for GMC volunteers being able to claim their share of the RA. We’re already not paying members of the GMC, I don’t think we need to directly cost them money for their service. I think the precedent - GMC recuses itself from benefiting but allows the community to express otherwise afterwards - is a good one.


I think this was a good way to go ahead with this.

In theory it may seem like double dipping for committee members, but when taking all of the facts into consideration, this seems very fair and straightforward.

If anyone donates their time and resources to volunteer they are entitled to a fair share of the retrospective award.
