@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <GriffGreen>But so far, in the 3+ years Giveth (and CS) has been around, we havent needed a legal entity… we applied for many grants, but never got one… the plan was to get one if we need it, when we need it. 07:22:08
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <GriffGreen>I really like the open law approach… but jumping thru the hoops of a creating nonprofit takes a lot of time and effort… I would rather make a delaware LLC with OpenLaw and then partner with a nonproft for our nonprofit needs. (re @geleeroyale_bot: <willyfox>We should chat with Ross Campbell (Peter from Metacartel intro’d us on telegram a while ago, but I never heard back. Need to follow up). His company OpenLaw makes it easy to spin up an LLC controlled by an Aragon DAO. I would love to chat with him about doing this for a 501c3 non-profit, but could be open to other structures or jurisdictions. https://link.medium.com/mF8oN9WxV7) 07:25:18
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <GriffGreen>@Edapt you made the nonprofit thing happen, how long did it take? 07:26:27
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <GriffGreen>And would your nonprofit be down with a partnership? 07:26:55
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <JamesF>All for only doing stuff if and when necessary. I mostly bring this up for discussion.

I also feel that there’s no use having super simple wallet creation for donors if we can’t facilitate them easily buying crypto.

So lightly proposing that if Circle could resolve this, but need to KYC someone first, then perhaps we could considering such a route.

@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <willyfox>I'm glad we’re discussing! There are clearly some benefits if we can figure this out. On the https://covid19.giveth.io MVP, users can donate with fiat or crypto and don’t need to create a new wallet or sign in. Wallet creation (or connection) is a requirement for projects, but more of a nice to have for donors. Still, it would be great to eliminate this blocker, because there’s no doubt we’ll continue running into challenges until we figure something out here 17:33:48

@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <markop>Did we try to apply for this? I can’t recall. https://www.unicef.org/innovation/applyBlockchainCrypto 09:54:59
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <GriffGreen>We applied with Alibre about 8 months ago and made it to one interview, but we didnt connect well with the interviewers 😞 09:58:26
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <markop>😕 10:50:03
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <markop>Ok, thanks for letting me know 10:50:12
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <willyfox>I reached out to Unicef to see if we could apply even though we’re not registered in one of their “programme countries,” but unfortunately they said registration as a private entity is hard requirement 😕
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <markop>random: I’m just being on the call using https://www.airmeet.com/ and it’s awesome. 16:13:43

@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <willyfox>I think they’re trying to get us to pay $2499 for their Startup Program 😱 I’m skeptical, but ty for sharing nonetheless 01:23:09

@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <willyfox>I think they’re trying to get us to pay $2499 for their Startup Program 😱 It could very well be worth it, but I’m skeptical. ty for sharing nonetheless 01:23:59
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <markop>I'm sceptical as well hence looking for group feedback 05:41:40
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <JamesF>My first thoughts are skeptical also 😉 08:47:44

@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <JamesF>I'm hoping that since the planning repo is now public that everyone should have permission to add new issues etc, if not please let me know https://github.com/Giveth/planning/settings#zenhub 16:51:41
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <geleeroyale>This might have been asked elsewhere,but who registered Giveth with mailchimp? - we need to setup some things for the current prototype 18:22:01
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <willyfox>Either @cameron or I set up the mailchimp that we’re using on covid19.giveth.io 18:43:07
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <willyfox>I can get you access @geleeroyale, checking it out now 18:43:26
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <geleeroyale>@willyfox Perfect! 18:50:01
@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <willyfox>Ah I just tried to update the username to ‘giveth’ and I can see that another account with giveth already exists. @griff do you know if there is an official giveth mailchimp being used at this point? or should we start a new one?

Shared the creds for one we can use and updated the username to “giveth_io” @geleeroyale ; let’s plan on using that one unless we find the login for the original “giveth” account

@bridge-bot:matrix.orgbridge-bot <geleeroyale>Yes that sounds good - I was looking for the Giveth user but that solution is fine as well and the database is pretty fresh, so we can expand on already collected contacts. 19:03:34
