To-do system with tasks completion reward for communities using their own Fuse Network token

One of the main goals of Fuse is to transform communities into economies and a building block for this goal is a simple, basic system for rewarding members who solve simple tasks in communities created with their own Fuse network token. :woman_mechanic:
It can be based on an existing open source development such as GitHub - shacker/django-todo: A multi-user, multi-group todo/ticketing system for Django projects. Includes CSV import and integrated mail tracking. that could be built upon.
This could involve the use of Meta-transactions (https://betterprogramming.pub/ethereum-erc-20-meta-transactions-4cacbb3630ee) so that end-users do not have to pay fees to solve tasks and be rewarded. :dart:

So upwork or fiver with community token payments?

Yes. Create a task > Assign a task > Verify task is done > Pay task in community currencies.

It will unlock uses as time banks. We’re currently using a community currency (Fuse based) as a token for buying locally, very soon as payment for solar energy production (mid-February) and the next piece of the Lego is to monetize (in community currencies) a time bank (or similar) in this case we’re planning to use it as rewards for tasks done at HomeOwners Associations and probably extend it (later) to time banks.

Sounds useful. What’s the proposal though? Is this for your application? Are you requesting dev support or a grant? Got a UI?

We did a task system with proposed rewards, but those rewards were not token related. See below:

Task

Also the task system was very limited. We would like to use an existing to-do task available open-source software like the one mentioned above and find an easy way to incorporate a Fuse-based token reward in a meta-transaction so the user won’t have to pay fees.

This system should work in our commercial application Supervecina.com for HomeOwners Associations related tasks and for time banks POC for our non-profit initiative Comunitaria.com that already uses a Fuse based community currency token for purchasing at local stores (working since June 2020) and for buying solar energy (a working MVP).

We’ve requested a grant at https://www.fusedao.com/ but dev support will be also be very useful.

Great, thanks for all the answers so far Miguel :slightly_smiling_face:

  • What’s going to be the main difference between Django-ToDo and this project (Superneighbor.com)? Besides that it’s built on Fuse and with its own token?

  • Why are you starting with the HomeOwners Associations? What’s the actual growth potential? How is this scalable across different communities/industries?

  • Interested to hear more about the time-banks?

  • What wallets are you aiming to support for the project? Will it have its own wallet?

  • Why would you focus on users creating (Fuse-based) community tokens? Why not just use the Fuse token? Purely for the meta-transaction so the user won’t have to pay fees?

  • Wouldn’t it be more scalable across the Fuse ecosystem if Fuse community members can easily hand out tasks and pay each other in Fuse when completed? Similar to Fiverr.

  • The rewards system doesn’t exist in the Django app, so task completion it’s like the oracle to trigger the token transfer.

  • Ideally, each HomeOwner Association (HOA) could function as a DAO as each of the neighbours that are also the owners of the properties share a portion of the HOA and they also have a vote in the HOA’s management. But that’s a quite ambitious goal. Let’s start with the basics. HOAs are a 400 billion market just in Europe.

  • Sure, there are some working local time banks promoted by the city council of Seville, wikibank (now Comunitaria) started as a time bank, I think monetizing time-banks it’s a good idea.

  • I wonder if it can work as an embedded fuse wallet web app.

  • Communities (like Supervecina.com or Comunitaria.com) can pay an initial up-front fee (in native Fuse token) for the meta transactions to occur, then everything will be gas-free (that’s the current approach of Colony.io). See below.

  • Users in a community will use their own token without knowing they’re using a blockchain. I think Fuse’s approach of non-native-blockchain user’s first/create your own economy/ it’s the correct one, that’s why we started to work in Fuse two years ago.

Could you expand the use case; – What tasks are residents doing? Why is this not the administrators role? How do people use the rewards they get?

Is this project based on existing peoples behaviours, or are you hoping to create new ones (i.e. giving their time for rewards, when presently they do not?)

thanks

At Supervecina we did a survey with more than 2,000 homeowners residing in a Homeowner Association (HOA) and the level of satisfaction with their manager is low in 70% of the cases, see https://informacion.supervecina.com/consulta-sobre-democracia-en-comunidades-de-propietarios.

The problem is that when one of the homeowners takes over the community, he/she is usually loaded with work and has no reward for it (besides receiving criticism), so he/she ends up leaving the position and the community ends up hiring a new manager. This is why self-managed communities usually do not function beyond two years.
We have also made other inquiries asking what are the tasks that homeowners least like to perform in an HOA and they are two: accounting and legal issues.

That is why our proposal is to provide a basic accounting and legal service https://informacion.supervecina.com/servicios-administracion-fincas that is complemented with a compensation system for tasks that are not strictly accounting or legal, such as: requesting quotes, comparing quotes, contracting services, following up on the resolution of incidents, convening homeowners meetings, assisting in the voting process and managing documentation, although we have tools that provide these services in an automated way, someone has to use them and take responsibility for their management. In the end, the result has to be satisfactory and more economical for the community.

Let’s take a practical example:
An HOA of 30 neighbours who pay their current administrator 200 Euros per month, decided to change to “incentivized self-management with Supervecina’s support” then the basic service of accounting and legal consultations of Supervecina would cost them 60 Euros, so they would have 140 Euros per month to compensate the homeowners who would do part of the management work. We also made an inquiry to find out what average price they would charge for a “simple” task and the average turned out to be 9.3 Euros, we will assume payment of 10 Euros.
Let’s imagine that in 6 months nothing has happened in an HOA and then a pipe bursts. The accumulated “common treasury” would be 140x6=840 Euros, a responsible homeowner does the following activities in the task manager (must be pre-configured):

  1. Notifies the insurance: 10 Euros.
  2. Accompanies the surveyor: 10 Euro
  3. Supervises the execution and informs his neighbours: 30 Euros
  4. Convene a meeting to approve an estimate for the renovation of the pipes: 50 Euros
  5. Organizes a vote: 50 Euros
  6. Take the minutes of the meeting: 30 Euros
  7. Stores the documentation of the minutes: 10 Euros

All in all, she/he would get a total of 190 Euros for her/his work and the community would be saving 840-190 = 650 Euros.

The way it could work is that all reward movements are HOA’s own tokens (or Supervecina’s own tokens for all communities) from a common wallet (treasury) to the wallet of the homeowner who takes ownership of the tasks. A Fuse stablecoin could also be considered, but it would have to be denominated in Euros, not Dollars.

The new habit is to reward the tasks that are generally not compensated to the responsible homeowner, so that the “supported self-management system” would be more likely to survive longer (this is an assumption).

Thanks for the detailed answer.

Thanks to this thread we have been contacted by a building refurbishment provider in Barcelona (where we already have communities managed online) and they are interested in participating in a pilot test.
We want the task list to have email or SMS notifications to suppliers, perhaps we could try to get suppliers to participate in the incentive system based on HOA’s own tokens, for example, a pool would be created with part of the budget of the work and they would receive rewards in tokens for keeping the information of the work updated or for correct execution, or on the contrary, tokens would be removed from the pool for delays in the execution or poor execution.

Thank you for all your detailed answers Miguel. We will discuss your proposal this Wednesday and will come back to you after that :slightly_smiling_face:
