In each proposals of the DAO there is a hash that I guess is here for us to check the proposal document matches the submission. But where to find these documents? Any official link where links to each proposal are listed? How can we vote if we can't read the original paper? Thanks.


No, it's not that the meaning.

Proposal hash is actually formed by recipent, amount and transaction data:

proposalHash = sha3(_recipient, _amount, _transactionData);


  • recipient: The recipient of the transaction. This is an address, which can only be the address of the DAO itself, the Curator or an address on the whitelist allowedRecipients. Any other address will throw an exception, blocking you from creating a new proposal. The whitelist is curated by the Curator, and only they can add/remove addresses to/from that list. There is an exception to this rule. When making a proposal for a new Curator, the recipient is the address of the proposed Curator (typically a multisignature account of trusted people, or in the case a user is splitting to form their own personal DAO, their own account address).

    amount: The amount of wei (1 = 10^-18 ether) to be sent from the DAO to the recipient in the proposed transaction.

    transactionData: The data of the proposed transaction. This is used to call functions in the case the recipient is a smart contract, and optionally to provide the function parameters of this smart contract to the DAO itself.

  • Ok, so where can I find for instance what is the 14th proposal ? – Nicolas Massart May 30 '16 at 14:14

    You can use different sites. The main sites I currently know are vote.daohub.org, forum.daohub.org, dao.consider.it. Remember that the DAO is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization, so everyone need to find a way to convince the crowd controlling it to spend money on their proposal. You can do it like-a-boss as Slock.it, with competence, documentation, videos and media coverage, and so it is more likely that your proposal will pass the quorum and it will be voted yes. Like Kickstarter, money are out there but you need to find your way to reach them and fund your project – Giuseppe Bertone May 30 '16 at 16:08
  • So the document hash is the field hashOfTheProposalDocument that we can see on Slock.it proposal live.ether.camp/account/… I guess, but not anyone created a contract in their proposal. That should be mandatory as a field of the DAO proposal creation method IMO. – Nicolas Massart May 30 '16 at 22:13
