Circles run in Epochs: periods of time in which its constituent body of contributors can send eachother GIVE tokens, which represent that Circle's total budget allocation. We envision Epochs as monthly events, where contributors can consider eachother'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 recieve funding elsewhere, allowing them to send GIVE but not recieve 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 cirle's budget.
