Final week, September 6-9, Ukrainian builders gathered for the primary Kyiv Tech Summit to construct know-how to unravel on-the-ground points in Ukraine. Held in an undisclosed location in Kyiv, this summit introduced collectively Ukranians to work collectively in-person and worldwide builders becoming a member of in assist from their properties.
Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians are in a life-threatening scenario. The aim of the summit was to construct software program that helps them through the use of censorship resistant, trustless, and permissionless know-how. Blockchain know-how unlocks new prospects for addressing humanitarian crises in revolutionary methods, so builders have been put to the take a look at to create know-how to unravel particular wants.
Whereas not the entire bounties have been centered on fundraising or assist to Ukraine particularly, most of the builders and winners of the bounties have been Ukrainians.
Among the humanitarian-focused creations included a pockets with the choice to take out interest-free microloans, an NFT fundraising software for autos and automobiles for transport in Ukraine, and a software that simplifies fundraising for Ukrainian nonprofits.
The summit was an enormous success, and even had a shock look from Vitalik!
Aragon was a proud sponsor of the occasion and hosted two bounties: one to construct extra capabilities of a delegated voting DAO and one other to design a plugin for the upcoming Aragon App. Let’s dive into what the groups on the Kyiv Tech Summit constructed utilizing aragonOS.
Bounty 1: Add options to a Delegated Voting DAO
The successful crew of the delegated voting DAO bounty constructed vote override and auto undelegate options for Aragon DAOs.
The vote override characteristic permits a token holder to disagree with their delegate’s vote and alter it by initiating an override earlier than the voting interval ends. That is helpful if delegates vote in a manner a token holder doesn’t agree with, primarily permitting token holders a veto on their delegate’s decisions.
The crew additionally constructed an auto-undelegate characteristic, which mechanically undelegates all tokens each 12 months. Delegated voting DAOs have a major drawback with voter apathy, as a result of many delegates themselves don’t vote. On high of that, token holders hardly ever preserve delegates accountable, so as soon as a delegate has tokens allotted to them, they hardly ever lose them and might vote unchecked for years. Auto-undelegate is one solution to remedy these points.
After the 12 month interval, token holders can nonetheless re-delegate to the identical delegate.
Bounty 2: Design a Plugin
The winner of our second bounty was a crew that designed Police Oracle, which notifies subscribed good contracts when a transaction coming into or out of a DAO meets sure standards. For instance, if there was a malicious actor attempting to empty the DAO’s treasury and ship the funds to their pockets, the DAO members may use a Police Oracle to inform them if that actor was making transactions from the DAO’s treasury to their particular pockets. It might not be capable to cease or reverse a transaction, it will merely ship a notification.
This might have use circumstances for treasury safety in DAOs. It may also be helpful for DAOs that should be compliant with accredited buyers, akin to funding DAOs. The DAO may use Police Oracle to observe all transactions exiting the treasury to ensure individuals weren’t misusing the funds.
This oracle will increase transparency and provides people one other solution to monitor transactions for safety causes.
Constructing know-how that liberates humanity, one hackathon at a time
We have been honored to be a part of this necessary hackathon and to offer sources to many builders in Ukraine. We hope that censorship resistant know-how will foster revolutionary options to humanitarian crises, together with the present disaster in Ukraine.
