Voting site on top of Snapshot
This article describes how a new site could allow DAO members to choose more than one delegate.
I recently described a voting social network — which doesn't need to be related to DAOs or crypto. In this article, I'll describe how a new site on top of Snapshot could improve liquid democracy for DAOs.
Let's describe a hypothetical voting app called VotingApp on top of Snapshot. It would let DAO members have more than one delegate — a priority list. DAO members could use this site without needing their DAO to stop using Snapshot.
The user journey would be as follows:
The user logs in with an email/password or crypto wallet.
The VotingApp creates a new eth address and asks the user to delegate on Snapshot there.
The user can add/delete/change the order of her list of delegates. These could be VotingApp usernames or eth or ens addresses.
The user can vote for proposals on ListVoting or Snapshot.
Every time someone votes on ListVoting or Snapshot, the app would update the votes of those who delegate to her — on ListVoting and Snapshot.
Besides voting, the users could explain why they are voting that way.
The user receives an email every few days with the proposals she will vote for due to her list of delegates. If she disagrees with her delegates, she could directly vote on concrete proposals. Also, she could change their list of delegates at any time.
This could be the first among many new voting mechanisms.
