The Arbitrum DAO Grants program is engaging the community in its governance by inviting members to nominate themselves for domain allocator roles, vote, and provide feedback on the management of funds and proposals. The process emphasizes transparency and accountability, with no significant negative aspects identified, and the community is encouraged to continue participating and reviewing the program's progress.

What is this about?

The discussion is centered on the nomination and election process for domain allocators within the Arbitrum DAO Grants program, which covers domains such as Gaming, Developer Tooling on NOVA, New Protocol Ideas, and Education, Community Growth, and Events. Community members were encouraged to self-nominate for these roles, providing details about their experience, vision, time commitment, and potential conflicts of interest. Following the nomination period, a Snapshot vote was held to elect domain allocators. The conversation has evolved to include updates on the multisig wallets for various domains, detailing the distribution and allocation of funds to grantees and operational expenses.

How is the community reacting?

The community has shown active participation in both the nomination and election phases, with members applying for domain allocator roles and endorsing candidates. The process has been interactive, with community members engaging with nominees, asking questions, and providing feedback. The discussion has also touched upon the management of funds, with updates on the distribution of grants and operational expenses across different domains. The community has been invited to review drafted RFPs and acceptance criteria for the domains, and to provide feedback on accepted proposals within the grants program.
