Governance

The Web 3.0 is accelerating the democratizations of business like DeFi projects UniSwap and Yearn.finance. Were a DAO is created with all the rules of the share pools for different stakeholders, and how this pools will be distributed. Governance Token are then distributed according the smart contract rules and the value contributions.

Defining bonus for early contributors that add value at early stages of the project were there is more risk.

If we analyze the Uniswap case , we can see that what they did was a retroactive value accounting audit in order to define a tokenomics model were, according to a set of value contributions defined by the Uniswap Team, they launch a set of rules in the form off a DAO.

With Yearn.finance. case you can read that from the launch of the rules of the project the 100% of governance tokens are given to the stakeholders community so the project is owned by the holders of their governance token.

Digital cooperativism in form of DeFi projects are starting to use Dapps and Daos for a better development of Community owned projects.

https://uniswap.org/blog/uni/

This new way to organize needs new tools and @ Timefounder we have been doing research and development the last 6 years and the delicious solution is using the Timefounder mix:

  • Tokenomics models for ways to fund you project.

  • Dynamic equity split system for solving problems between founders is the main cause of failure of companies.

  • Value accounting for reduce legal costs of stock options and other equity distribution systems.

  • T:F Value tokens for Smart ways to rewards stakeholders

We are talking about creating projects defining models of reward to all value contributions.

For community owned projects not only investors are needed but experts, advisors, users, clients, providers. A set of stakeholders that we should care about and define ways to allow them be de co owners of our projects.

Thanks to smart contracts and DAOS, DeFI new projects are opening the door to start to offering a good service to solve all the pains we all face when we want to fund our project. Welcome to TimeFounder.

How trello.timefounder.com works

One you have done the setup process you can use your trello account as usual and only have to follow this rules in order to have your Project Pie and contributors ranking of trello projects you want to use.

The idea is very simple. You have to add the number of shares you asign to the members of each card.

So what you do is that when someone finish a task you add the numbers of shares writting at the description field the number of shares, that we call Timefounder Shares (T:F's)

Each share represent a slice of the pie of the project. The more slices you have the biggest pie share you have. Welcome to the value accounting world. The fairshare model for fairshare companies.

Coops, agile teams and startups can use Timefounder to use value accounting for funding their projects and reduce the risk of fights between founders.

Track Contributions

Track contributions if the act of writtting at the desciption field of each donne tasks the numer of shares you assign to the member or members of each card.

What Timefounder does is read the description section of the trello card's looking for the T:F's letters and read the number before this code to use it as the number of shares to assign to the Trello's card member/s.

-> ex 100 T:F's ---> This will give 100 shares to all card members

Apply Multipliers

A multiplier is a function that we use to reward people that add value at initial stages of the project where the risk of failure is higher.

It's typically used to define a bonus strategy for the first rounds

We also read if after the number we find a multiplier with this format: (xMultiplier)

-> ex 100 (x4) T:F's --> This will give 400 shares to all card members

Just enter your Trello Board and keep using it as usual for your project planning and learn how use it to track value contributions and be able to visualize it with trello.timefounder.com
