HowdyMetaforo introduced Metaforo, a Web3 native forum designed for decentralized governance, offering features like decentralized data ownership, wallet connections for identity validation, and token rewards for contributors. The transition from Discourse to Metaforo involves transferring all members and content, with users logging in using their Discourse account and connecting their wallets to their email address, and the forum URL and thread URLs remaining the same.
The discussion was initiated by HowdyMetaforo, who introduced a project named Metaforo, a Web3 native forum designed for Web 3 Governance. The forum is intended to serve as a decentralized platform for DAOs, facilitating brainstorming, drafting proposals, feedback, and task coordination. The content of the forum is stored on Arweave, and all governance processes are token-gated and token-weighted1.
Metaforo was developed as a response to the limitations of Discourse, a web2 tool. These limitations include centralized data ownership, susceptibility to Sybil attacks, lack of on-chain proof of work, low participation rates in voting, and lack of Web 3 access control to discussions and voting, among others. Metaforo addresses these issues by offering decentralized data ownership, wallet connections for identity validation, SBT issuance for proof of work, token rewards for contributors, and a mobile app with push notifications for higher voting participation, among other features1.
The transition from Discourse to Metaforo involves transferring all members and content from the previous forum to Metaforo. Users can log in to their new Metaforo account using their Discourse account and then connect their wallets to their email address. The forum URL will remain the same, and all existing thread URLs will be automatically updated to the new platform. Metaforo offers an NFT and token-based permission system, multiple voting permission controls, and Gnosis Safe login support1.
HowdyMetaforo also mentioned that some crypto projects like ShapeShift and BuilderDao have recently migrated to Metaforo. He proposed a vote to set up a test group on Metaforo.io to see if it’s a good fit for Aave and asked for the correct contact to carry the discussion further1,2. The discussion concluded with a call to action for a vote on the proposed migration to Metaforo.
