What’s a Pod?
We’ll be giving writers and editors the option to form writing groups based on their interests and what they want to write about. The groups they form will be called “pods”. The first evolution of the pod structure, proposed by PubDAO Contributors Brownrygg and Ilan, is a two pod structure: private and public.
Private pods are sponsored by a client and the content is owned completely by them. These co-working groups consist of skilled writers and editors curated for the desired outcome of the pod and will be created as needed by market demand. When a client or company requests to spin up a pod, they are required to allocate an additional token bounty, on top of the standard token bounty available for writers in the pod.
Public pods create content considered to be a public good that enriches the ecosystem. These co-working groups consist of any PubDAO member who is interested in working with other pubbers on publishing content for PubDAO. A portion of the private pod payouts will be used to fund public pods.
Private pods are the core product of PubDAO, but also serve as fundraising mechanisms for public pods: so that DAO can support media as a public good.
