    I'm not quite understanding what exactly you are going to do. Is your plan to develop new DAO tools or integrate something specific that already exists? Or is this primarily about governance design work such as modeling different decision-making resources and performing simulations etc. ? I think there should be some good common understanding and a clear roadmap towards decentralisation. The Supervisory Council initiated blueprint is now open for community involvement. Maybe you could make references to that and mirror your plans against it.  Imo, this proposal would benefit from a more detailed breakdown. Nevertheless, happy to see people are seriously thinking about these questions as they are indeed of the highest importance.

    Proposals for establishing mechanisms for community involvement in decision-making regarding the development and deployment of AI systems are valuable. Ensuring community participation is crucial, but it's also essential to ensure that decisions are not excessively delayed or overly reliant on electoral processes or debates. [Also hope that you could provide us with some feedback on the proposal to help us improve it further. Thank you very much. https://deepfunding.ai/proposal/play-quizz-explore-singularity-ecosystem/]

    Directionally great but missing critical context

    I applaud the team for trying to advance decentralisation in SingularityNET. However, the proposal lacks context (there is a key initiative already advancing in this regard with the Blueprint and proposed election of the next council) and also lacks depth (how will the proposed solutions work, what will be controlled, etc).
    I invite the team to familiarise themselves with the Blueprint and participate in the already ongoing process

    More details need completed to have final proposal

    More details need to be completed to have a complete proposal

    I personally think that the current proposal is still sketchy and has not been fully presented to be worthy of the $80,000 funding request.
    The democratization of AI governance is a big topic that cannot be done in a short time. Milestones need to be supplemented with more information to be more complete. Perhaps in the coming time the expression and presentation will be different. Currently, there are many milestones that need to be added. I advise the team to quickly add more information to confirm the feasibility of the proposal. Currently, I cannot give many stars for the criteria set out.

    Specify the work to be done

    Currently, King Eddie is presenting sketchy milestones, he will probably add more in the near future, before the deadline for submitting proposals expires. I don't think someone as reputable as King would build a proposal with such a sketchy milestone. Especially when the amount of funding requested is not small at $80,000, the author must definitely do specific things in the proposal to be worthy of this $80,000 figure. Start by stating what needs to be done to implement the proposal along with a specific amount of money for it.

    Need to deeper & present a more thorough analysis

    King Eddie has built 4 milestones quite briefly, is it a product that has not been completely completed because there is still time to submit the proposal? I'm waiting for the milestones to be presented more clearly with an approximate duration.
    The project that seeks to empower the SNET community is a bold approach, it fits with the future trend when all are moving towards decentralized governance. The feasibility is there, but to achieve it, it takes a lot of effort. This is not to mention the efforts to maintain viability in the next stages (after the proposal is successfully applied in practice).
    With what I see in this proposal at the moment, I can only rate the number of stars higher in Usefulness, the rest I continue to wait for the next additions from the team. Thank you team.
