DaJuice Current Student Council

Degen CPA that's ready to help the DAOO through it's next growth phase on the way to Valhalla.

From the Ape's mouth Why I want to be on the Student Council

For those that don’t know me, I’ve been involved in the DAA community since mint. I fell in love with the art and the community’s Degen vibe right away and since then I’ve accumulated over 20 apes, 45 pandas and 20 eggs (check ‘em out at dajuice.sol and degendajuice.sol). The Degeniverse is by far my largest crypto investment and I am committed to this project for the long term.

In real life I own a mid-size CPA firm specializing in tax planning and consulting for business owners and high net worth individuals. During my first student council bid I ran on a platform of using my decade-plus of business and accounting experience to help the DAA team wherever possible in growing the brand and increasing ape-holder value. Since then, the structure of the DAOO and council has changed into a fully separate entity from the DAA dev team, but if voted in again, I intend to do the same. I have also offered to provide an independent review, on a periodic basis, of the DAOO financial statements on behalf of the community once the treasury reaches a material amount of assets and activity.

To be totally up front, my IRL responsibilities are significant and if you’re looking for someone to dedicate significant time grinding out WL spots for the community or building SOL apps for the DAOO, I'm not your guy. I will be a voice of reason on the council, active in discussions on major issues that are facing the community, and provide advice and perspective based on my years of experience in the business world. I will call it like I see it and will always have the best interest of DAA holders first in mind.

You also have my promise that I will not abuse my position of leadership for personal gain at the expense of my fellow apes, pandas and eggs. My loyalty is first and foremost, to the Degen Ape community. I’m not here to “market” for other projects. I am here to help take the Degen Apes to Valhalla, LFG!

A few questions we have What do you think about....

What do you love most about the Degeniverse?

I love the diversity of our community and the friendships I've made over the last 10 months. There is such a range of knowledge and experience in our holders, that it is great hanging out in mint squad and other discord channels and just talking to whoever's around. The camaraderie that we've all built from being on the forefront of SOL nft's has created a tight-knit group of degens unlike any other project I've been around.

The art is also the best of probably any nft project in existence and I truly believe the future is bright for DAA.

What skillset or experience do you have that sets you apart from other candidates, and how do you plan to utilize it for the benefit of the community?

See above.

What would a successful 120 day term look like to you, i.e. what do you hope the council will be able to accomplish?

A successful 120 day term to me would include a smooth transition of current wallet funds to the Realms multi-sig wallet controlled by the DAOO.

We would also re-work the current DAOO governance framework initially drafted by the DAA dev team to better fit the current structure of the DAOO and its members.

We would implement a budget across multiple periods to project income from various revenue sources including the DICS Validator, DAA grants, and marketplace revenue share, and budget the allocation of funds to community developed projects and initiatives.

We would continue to work closely with the Degen Labs team to ensure cohesive branding and marketing of the project within, and outside of, the Solana NFT community.
