Finally! Additional key terms that we should take note of in the DAOstitution.

Thank you for making sure that all the articles are laid out accordingly for the community to check. You guys are really paying attention to every little detail. :100:

Another set of terms to memorize! Thank you for this, will definitely make a note to remember all of them.

Good thing that you guys keep reminding us what are the terminologies and its definition we will encounter once again. Thanks, team, and keep it up. :facepunch: :facepunch: :facepunch:

Awesome stuff!
Terminology definition is a key for avoiding all misunderstanding and will lead us to the easier decision-making for DAO Members! :100:
It should be expanded in future or we should have a glossary here! What do you think?
Glossary with possible hyperlinks in each proposal would make it easy and clear for everyone :wink:

This actually sounds like a great idea! :fire:

I didn’t know about this until now. Another terms to take note! Thanks for being so detailed and transparent with us!

What’s the difference between a Community member and DAO member?

It is great that they always put and define the terminologies we will encounter throughout the whole BDIP. This is a great help for our better understanding.

I think DAO members are those who hold sBREED and have the capacity to vote while community members are those who only want to participate, join, or maybe somewhat have a contribution here in DAO. That’s only how I understand it, correct me if I’m wrong. :slightly_smiling_face:

This is very much relevant. It’s great read and will surely help those who are not yet familiar with the jargon,

I agree! This at least gives us clarity about the difference between the two. Thank you for this!

New terms eh? Let’s get it!

Yet another list of words to learn! Thank you for making sure that every article is properly formatted for the community to review. You guys are really focusing on every tiny thing.

I guess the term Breeders will be included in the future proposals.

Since our community is the DAO, I think as long as there’s a contribution then we can definitely consider each other DAO members!

It’s good to understand that we need to keep DAO members to just stakers so there’s greater impact on who’s voting or who wants to vote. :grinning:

Not all stakers participate in DAO proposal voting, just saying.

I know a lot of holders but they don’t bother voting. So yes, it would be perfect to have a clear definition.
