Collaborative Drip Lists

With a Collaborative Drip Lists, a group of people can come together and vote on the recipients of a Drip List before it gets deployed on-chain. This makes it easy to settle on a list of dependencies with distributed teams, and even allows running larger Public Goods Funding programs on Drips.

Currently, voting is only possible for creating an entirely new Drip List. Soon, it'll also be possible to vote on a new set of receivers for an existing Drip List.

Creating a collaborative Drip List

To create a new collaborative Drip List, simply click Drip Lists → Create Drip List, and select "Collaborate on recipients". You'll be asked to provide a list of collaborators, which can be any selection of ETH addresses, and when the voting should end. Additionally, you can choose to hide the list of collaborators and their votes from the public.

Once created, a collaborative Drip List lives off-chain until published after voting is concluded. During the voting period, collaborators may submit their votes.

The address that creates the collaborative Drip List is considered its publisher. As the publisher, you may delete the list after creating it, and publish it on-chain after voting is concluded. Once published, the list is on-chain, and can be funded with support streams or one-time donations by anyone.


Collaborative Drip Lists may be shared with their URL, and appear on the publisher's public profile the same way a non-collaborative Drip List does.


Each collaborator will be able to submit a vote within the voting period you configured. Once the collaborative Drip List has been submitted, a "Submit your vote" button will appear on the Drip List's page if the app is connected to a collaborator's wallet.

While voting, collaborators are asked to submit what they think the recipients of the list should be. All votes are tallied continously, and a preview of what the list would look like if voting were to end right now is displayed (unless you chose to "hide collaborators").

Hide collaborators

If you enable "Hide collaborators" during the Drip List creation flow, only you as the publisher may reveal the list of collaborators and their individual votes. Anyone else will only be able to submit and see their own vote. In this mode, votes are only tallied at the end of the voting period, and only the final results are automatically publicized. No-one but the publisher can ever see who voted for what, though it is possible to check whether a particular address has submitted a vote or not.

How votes are tallied

Every collaborator is asked to vote on what they think the final Drip List should look like — specifically, what Projects, ETH addresses, or even other Drip Lists should receive what percentage of funds. The final result of the voting round is simply an average percentage of a particular recipient across all votes, capped to the top 200 recipients by overall percentage.
