As a Circle Admin, you will be able to edit Circle Settings, Edit Epoch settings, edit your users, and create new circles.


As an admin, you can control the following:
  • Circle Creation
  • Circle Settings
  • Epoch Settings
  • Manage Members
  • Vouching Requirements
  • Export Allocation Data

Best Practices

The best practices for running Coordinape will vary from team to team. But, in general, we find that teams that communicate their goals for Coordinape to their contributors will have a better experience than teams that start Circles without communicating with their users.
So, when communicating to your teams, here are some things to make sure to mention:
GIVE Eligibility
Work Dates
Contribution Impact
Compensation Method
  • Who should be eligible to send and receive GIVE?
  • Should members compensated via grants or salaries be rewarded?
  • Which dates should your contributors be thinking about when allocating?
  • Should users consider all of the prior months when allocating?
  • Should they only consider work that members completed?
  • What type of activity would you like your contributors to be rewarding?
  • Should a particular type of work be more valuable? (Devs or Business Development?)
  • How are allocations paid out?
  • Will they be paid in stable coins or project tokens, or is your DAO just tracking contributions until they have a token to distribute?

Team Size

Team sizes can range from 2-200+, but it's easier to allocate to smaller teams (<20), so the users can interact with most team members.

Compensation Amounts
The amount of compensation for each epoch can vary. It can be zero; it can be infinity.
Prior to our on-chain launch, there is no escrow feature, so the admin will distribute the compensation after the Epoch ends.
Once on-chain, funds for epochs will be escrowed in the Ape Vaults and automatically made available to claim or distribute at the end of the Epoch after the admin approves the distributions.
