There is a difference between two things.
Whoever requests technical support only to be able to build his decentralized application on AirDAO, and we can provide support to him in a decentralized manner through our educational resources available to everyone, and through our communities of developers, we will only guide him on how to deal with our educational resources and our community, and he will receive support for free.
Those seeking financial, management, marketing, legal, or technical support that is more than just advice and guidance
This requires setting rules and procedures that protect AirDAO from losing its money, getting involved in bad projects and agreements, being scammed, or getting into problems of any kind.
Here I will mention some examples of agreements and projects that may be bad, and no one notices that at first.
A programmer or group of programmers may come and ask for funding and support to build an application based on AirDAO, and they get it, and the application succeeds, and after a period of one or two years, they stop supporting AirDAO in their application.
If that happens, AirDAO will lose time, money, and effort.
We have not noticed from the start that we should write an agreement forcing them to support AirDAO for a period of seven years, for example.
Another example might be a talented programmer coming in, asking for funding and support, getting it, and building a successful decentralized application.
After a period of time, due to illness, death, or any other reason, the application stops, and we also lose our money, time, and effort.
This can also happen even if the responsible team and not one person stop supporting the application for any reason.
There should have been an agreement between AirDAO and the other party that, in this case, gave us the right to control the application so that it would not stop.
Examples are many, and we should think about all possibilities to establish rules that protect AirDAO from risks.
Everyone who comes to us asking for support or funding should answer several questions.
I will mention here some questions as examples, and by answering these questions
We can get an initial idea of how serious he is and whether his project is capable of success or not.
Did he study his idea or not? Does he really know how to build success?
1.What is your idea? Who are you? What are your qualifications and previous experiences?
And what are the qualifications and experiences of the team that is with you, if you own a team?
2.What support do you expect from us? Do you expect financial support, technical support,
legal support, marketing support, or other support?
3.Do you have a feasibility study, business plan, operating plan, or marketing plan that you have prepared? If the answer is yes, please let us know.
4.Have you studied the market you intend to enter? Who are your competitors?
What are the expected profits and sales? What is the size of the market you want to enter?
Have you done statistics? Have you done research?
5.Will your project be open source or closed, and if it is open source, under what license will it be released?
6.Do you have a team? Can you form a team? Are there experiences that you need in your country available? or will you rely on a team from other countries working with you?
7.Will the laws in your country allow you to launch your application there, or will your company be in another country, and are you able to implement that?
8.What risks do you expect to face, and do you have plans to overcome them? What are these risks, and what are these plans?
9.How much time do you expect to complete your project or application?
10.How much do you expect your idea will cost, and what specializations do you need to help in implement your idea? How many are there?
11.What programming languages and technologies do you intend to use, and do you have
all the technical and mental capabilities to implement your application and write the code, or you will need our help?
12.Why do you think your idea will succeed? What advantage will you have?
13.Are you ready to sign agreements with us that protect your rights and our rights?
14.What are the reasons that made you think about building your application on AirDAO?
Is it just the possibility of obtaining financial or technical support, or are there other reasons?
I only present these questions as an example. The real questions may be more, less, or even different. What I want is to create a way through which we can initially judge how serious the person who asks for support is.
Is his idea worth supporting or not?
And also establishing rules through which we can judge whether to provide support or not.
These questions, if we think about them, will help us extract the rules that will control the support.
I tried to provide a basis and rules that protect AirDAO from getting involved in bad projects.
or even involved in a good project, and after a while we find ourselves not benefiting anything from it or involved in legal or technical problems or any other problems.
