Pairwise - Simplifying Choices Amplifying Voices
Who? Pairwise is a project built by General Magic with a lot of support from rockstar DAO OGs. @VitorMarthendal is the project lead with design by @markoprljic and @thegrifft as the product owner. @mathsguy, @kronosapiens, @gichiba @AAbugosh, @ZeptimusQ, and the Giveth community are all supporting the effort as well.What? Say goodbye to endless forum scrolling and hello to easy, efficient and fun community signaling with Pairwise! Our open-source, snapshot-style voting dapp, based on the big brain algorithm research out of Colony in 2018, offers a fast-paced and intuitive experience, perfect for the next generation of DAOs. Join us in revolutionizing governance with the power of algorithms and give your community a fun way to engage in governance, as opposed to boring old voting.Why? Current voting mechanisms provide poor user experience and require a high cognitive overhead leading to intense voter apathy. As an ecosystem, we expect community members to spend a lot of time reading forum posts and have designed our tooling around this expectation. This will not scale. Where? Pairwise will be a public good for the Web3 ecosystem. It will be implemented as a DApp with its own frontend and backend, and can be used in various contexts, such as community governance or project funding, with custom frontends. Pairwise voting will be compatible with all Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) chains and the development will be fully open source, and will also include documentation for developers who want to use the system in their own projects.How? Our project is structured into five main milestones, each focusing on a specific aspect of the ecosystem. These range from initial platform development and integration to creating a mechanism for incentivizing voting and enhancing voting interfaces.When? Our first milestone is targeted at 2.5 months post-initiation, contingent on securing our initial 40k funding mark. We're pretty close, and with your backing, we're confident we'll get there in no time. So, let's buckle up and get ready for this exciting ride.
