Who is Involved:

The Threshold Marketing Guild Committee (MGC) multisig consists of @MrsNuBooty , @nous , @ZeroInFo56 , @Weedzy , @Jessi , @Liz_S, @Carusosa and @JohnPackel.

Why:

This quarterly budget is to support the mission of the Marketing Guild Committee to support Threshold development teams’ marketing efforts, grow our network of contributors to Threshold DAO, onboard new members, educate on Threshold’s value, services and use cases and more.

Supporting Details:

A line-item summary of the budget is linked below and further supported by the budget presentation slides (which were presented and discussed on a weekly Marketing Guild open “T Party” meeting on June 2, 2022).

Also included is a summary of Q2 transactions from the initial founding discretionary budget. Approximately 2/3 of that initial T has been spent so far in Q2, but unfortunately the majority of the dollar value was lost due to market value decline.

A link is also provided to the Marketing Guild’s Q3 Objectives and Key Results, which includes these goals: support an increase in Threshold stakers, build education around the platform, amplify community growth, and create the Marketing Guild’s infrastructure.

Transaction Details:

Transfer $124,450 USD value of T at the time of the transaction to the Marketing Guild Committee multi-signature wallet.

Looks good - nice job on this MG. One thing to add - the TG has also budgeted an additional ~$10k / month to be used at conferences and hackathons. I recommend you look into how this ~$30k or so in aggregate can best be used for Q3.

The Marketing Guild PRE budget is set aside for a little different use than hackathons. The PRE use case competition would be to crowd source PRE development ideas, potentially on Layer 3.

The MG would not utilize these funds without cooperation and alignment with the Integrations and Treasury Guilds.

I have added PRE growth as a topic for our DAO Alignment Call this Friday at 3PM Eastern on Discord voice Threshold Network
