Demian, a researcher from the University of Bern, is conducting a brief, anonymous survey to understand the motivational factors driving participation in Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs). The aim is to help DAO communities enhance member motivation, with the potential downside being the time commitment required and the reliance on a raffle for participation incentive.

What is this about?

This discussion revolves around a survey being conducted by Demian, a researcher from the University of Bern. The survey is focused on understanding the motivational factors that drive participants in DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations). The ultimate goal of this research is to aid DAO communities in enhancing the motivation of their members to participate. The survey is designed to be anonymous and brief, taking approximately 5-10 minutes to complete with 20 single-choice questions.

How is the community reacting?

The community's reaction to this survey is not explicitly mentioned in the summaries. However, the fact that Demian is offering a chance to win one of 10 Discord Nitro monthly subscriptions as a token of appreciation suggests an attempt to encourage participation.

Why this is positive?

The survey represents a positive step towards understanding and improving participation in DAOs. By identifying the motivational factors that drive participants, DAO communities can potentially implement strategies to increase engagement and participation. The anonymity of the survey also ensures that participants can express their views freely, which could lead to more accurate and insightful results.

Why this is negative?

There are no explicit negative aspects mentioned in the summaries. However, one potential concern could be the time commitment required to complete the survey. Despite being relatively short, some community members might find the 5-10 minute duration to be a deterrent. Additionally, the reliance on a raffle to incentivize participation might not appeal to all potential participants.
