[PROPOSAL-002] GuruDAO Manifesto


The proposal describes the vision and values of GuruDAO


With the creation of any organization comes challenges in assembly. In order to combat these issues head on we’ve decided to present a proposal for the GuruDAO Manifesto.

This proposal aims to define the GuruDAO vision, mission, and shared values of its members. If passed, not only will this proposal be a stepping stone in building GuruDAO, but will be referenced in the future as an arbitrator any conflict that may arise.


What is GuruDAO

GuruDAO is a product-focused community of contributors that have come together to support and grow web3 products and infrastructure. GuruDAO’s flagship product, DexGuru is a trading terminal made for traders in DeFi era. Using DexGuru, traders are able to leverage on-chain data to take advantage of the latest market trends and place their trades with more conviction than ever before. The GuruDAO community will continue to bring new ideas, new contributions and eventually, develop new products.

Our Vision

Our vision at GuruDAO is to build robust web3 products that people are excited to use. We want the community to drive development and be responsible for the progress of the products built by GuruDAO.

Our Mission

Our mission is to create a participatory, community-driven economy powered by the $GURU token that enables the support, development, engineering, and adoption of the DexGuru and related products.

The best way of working towards this mission is to ensure community members see themselves as equal contributors to the project, aligned with the same goals.

Our Values

As a community, we believe in the core values that encourage us and unite toward community growth:

  • Decentralization
    • There is no core team, there is no one single center of authority. People have their voice, are able to express themselves, and get organized into sub-DAOs to multiply their efforts. We believe in the natural ability of the community to shape itself to find the best organizational fit and work towards each goal.
  • Contribution
    • Every member of the community is a contributor who dedicates their available resources towards DAO development and gets rewarded. Ignited by the same goal, we believe that the community may be distributed, diversified but first of all, it should be a team. We are in the same boat, so the way to success is to help each other.
  • Responsibility
    • We encourage people to take responsibility for the community, business areas, and new initiatives. People are the greatest asset of the DAO, and only their input and endeavor will lead the community to success.
  • Transparency
    • There is no single leader or management team, so everybody should have equal access to all information that affects DAO health.
  • Education
    • We share the guru way - the path to becoming a guru is one of constant learning. Learning from theory, learning from others, and by ourselves.

Pledge and Standards

It is important to us not only to build, but to build responsibly. Whether building products or communities - it is essential that everyone feels safe and welcomed at all times. We believe it is extremely important to set the standards for GuruDAO from day one, which is why we have developed the pledge below.

We as members, contributors, and leaders pledge to make participation in our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, visible or invisible disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation. We pledge to act and interact in ways that contribute to an open, welcoming, diverse, inclusive, and healthy community.

Examples of behavior that contributes to a positive environment for our community include:

  • Demonstrating empathy and kindness toward other people
  • Being respectful of differing opinions, viewpoints, and experiences
  • Giving and gracefully accepting constructive feedback
  • Accepting responsibility and apologizing to those affected by our mistakes, and learning from the experience
  • Focusing on what is best not just for us as individuals, but for the overall community.

Examples of unacceptable behavior include:

  • The use of sexualized language or imagery, and sexual attention or advances of any kind
  • Trolling, insulting or derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
  • Public or private harassment
  • Publishing others’ private information, such as a physical or email address, without their explicit permission
  • Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting.

Yes, this is definitely the case. Everyone should respect and obey the law.Discord users must also respect the privacy of individuals


Looks good. Eg seems to be inclusive to whoever wants to join the community. For trolling… is there a threshold? Will there be a bot or mod to moderate and enforce this?


totally agree with this proposal . it’s necessary to make good rules before the guru’s dao really launch. since without it , anything will be mess up .


Good first draft but would need some more details ofcourse. But that is mentioned in cons and will be doable to define in a later stage


Hmm… good point. As trolling is quite difficult to enforce. Many may play it off as sacarsm.
I guess as long as it doesnt hurt the feelings of others? Maybe?


this will be a yes vote for me. would be awesome to see how this real DAO which will aim to be fully decentralized will develop for sure.


I agree
DAO is great, it will empower users, everyone to decide their future.
But there are also many bad people, be careful with them
:heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes:


I agree with the vision and mission. But i have 1 question: there is no core team, there is no one single center of authority, so who gave the development directions of the original GuruDAO so that the community could follow along and not get lost?


There is nothing to add, everything is scattered over the facts. Agreed with it for today. Will see the future, seems good


it is a yes vote for me. This is awesome and cool for me.
Rules are very essential in ensuring effectiveness.
:grinning: :grinning: :heartpulse:


Totally agree with the vision and mission.it’s necessary to make good rules before the guru’s dao really launch. since without it , anything will be mess up .


It is good enough to start.
I believe it will get better as days pass.
Up sides and downs sides will show up.


Looks new voting for dex guru governence. Hmmm i think yes is better for this vote .will aim to be fully decentralized will develop for sure


Gradually the members of GuruDao realize their position and we will make more important decisions. We know how valuable it is to be a member of this community.


nice,This project is really good, I have tested it for a long time, I like it, the transaction is convenient, I really love it


Absolutely im agree with the proposal. Its fine and fair enough dor every one in the community . So we could make it together :heart:


There may be certain difficulties when deciding what is inappropriate, but surely with the consensus of the members of the DAO everything will be fine.


I completely agree with the vision and mission. DAOs are built to empower people. GuruDAO will surely do what it has been created to to do. Will there be a bot or mod to moderate and enforce this?


We are all committed to the team. The team is doing great​:partying_face:We are hard at work​:partying_face::partying_face::partying_face::partying_face:Good news for the team
