We have just released the Solution Statement Supplements, an additional section of the White Paper aimed at delving deeper into the intricacies of Governance and the Govrn Solution.
Here we answer several key questions on how Govrn’s Outcome-Based Donation (OBD) model works and how they function in practice.
One of the coolest parts about this section is that both the questions and answers came directly from our community members! We discussed these questions on the last community call and used the output of the discussions as the starting place for the answers.
Here’s an excerpt from the section:
Question: When does an OBD become active or official? Is there a threshold or does the outcome community decide a timeline?
Answer: OBD (Outcome-Based Donation) participation will vary greatly based on geography and topic. As a result, it doesn’t make sense to apply a one-size-fits-all approach to thresholding. OBDs should be able to accept proposals and input from experts and politicians as soon as they are listed on the platform. That said, it’s likely that OBDs will receive more engagement from politicians and experts as constituent participation increases. The OBD will then become active or official after the donors vote on which proposal to use and send funds to escrow. To recap, an OBD becomes official once donors have had a chance to hold a vote on the proposals and leave if they are unsatisfied with the results. Note - any donor who voted for an option that does not win, will have the ability to withdraw their donation during a grace period between the vote and the funds moving to escrow.
We have been blown away by your contributions to the White Paper so far and look forward to hearing your thoughts about the next step in our journey.
