Circles run in Epochs: periods of time in which its constituent body of contributors can send each other GIVE tokens, which represent that Circle's total budget allocation. We envision Epochs as monthly events, where contributors can consider each other's collaboration, mutual enablement and furthering of the DAO's mission over that time period. Each member is allocated a fixed amount of GIVE (100 by default), and can send any number of these tokens to other Circle members freely during the Epoch. Members can also opt out if they receive funding elsewhere, allowing them to send GIVE but not receive it. GIVE has no value if it is not given to another Circle member -- the process of gifting defines the per-member payout from the circle's budget.
