💪What is a Reputation System?

Reputation System captures Member contributions and gives them XP for their valuable contribution. It's like the front page which reflects who are the most active folks in the communities.

What are XP Points?

XP points are like your DAO Credit Score - they are a reflection of the value you have added to Superteam as well as the larger ecosystem using your skills and intent.

🔮How are XPs allocated?

Formula: XP = (Effort) * (Importance)

Effort is determined by the amount of time you work on a project.

The Importance Multiplier (*) is inherently subjective. Currently, it is determined by the Core Contributors, though over time the community as a whole will be more involved. The multiplier is a number ranging from 1.0 to 4.0. A low multiplier is applied to projects that are useful but not ground-breaking, while a high multiplier is given for critical or impactful projects.

Now, you might be thinking about how to earn them? 🤔

So, here are the ways:

  1. Permissionless Bounties: Fixed and one-time XP, available for winning a bounty or reviewing a bounty

  2. Indie Contribution: Contribution to the Solana Ecosystem by any means like even attending a call.

  3. Contributions to Grant Projects and Permission Bounties.

  4. Superteam Braintrust

    • Members engaged in part-time/full-time community-focused work within Superteam receive fixed, recurring XP on a monthly basis, automatically granted at the end of each month.

    • The amount of XP allotted per month is based on the tier of work, which is as follows:

    • Full-time work: 700 XP

    • Project leads: 500 XP

    • Part-time work and other assistance: 250 XP

    • Grantees shall start receiving XP once their contracts are effective.

But before you begin, you should be aware of the following system too!

😱Purge System

There is also a time-bound purge system for the contributors and members based on the XP, you earn in your first 10 weeks as part of Superteam. It means that this situation will happen:

Member to contributor, Contributor to lurker

Criteria for the purge are:

  • Have not earned at least 100 XP

  • Are not a part of any working group (lead has to vouch if not to be relegated)

  • Are not a Grant Winner, or have abandoned your grant project beyond the reasonable time.

Now, that you know the Reputation System,

let's begin to conquer the world of web3 dev.
