⚒️ Learn the tools and platforms we will use
Trusted Seed will use Zoom as the video conferencing platform to facilitate the activities for our Opening and Closing Days. Check out the system requirements for using it so you can avoid any issues.
Use our Miro board an online collaboration whiteboard platform. This tool is intended to be used as a shared sandbox or information gathering for our sessions. If you are not familiar with this tool you can learn here how to get started with Miro.
👀 Keep yourself informed

Your email and/or shared calendar
You’ll receive a personal invite directly to your calendar so you can book the time to participate in the Unconference activities to the email you provided when registered the event.
💗 Use Praise - Let’s recognize everyone’s contributions!
At Trusted Seed we practice the culture of giving and gratitude via the reward system: Praise. As participants during the Trusted Seed Unconference, we’d like to recognize the full range of value you’ll be creating during this experience.
We’d like to invite you to be part of this culture! Join the Discord Server and learn here the what, how, and why of dishing Praise:
Praise is an open-source system developed by Commons Stack and it runs in its server which is the same server Trusted Seed uses to interact with its community. It encourages communities to cultivate a culture of giving and gratitude by recognizing and rewarding contributions. As an open source product, Praise can be deployed by any community that wishes to use it. See more information about Praise here.
To recognize a contribution during our session, you’ll need to interact with the praise bot. It’s only available in Commons Stack Discord Server, so that means you must join first. After joining our server you’ll need to activate your account to be able to dish praise and receive $TRUST!
Simply type and send the command /activate in any channel and you will be prompted to link your ETH address and access your Praise dashboard. After that, you can type the command /praise in any channel to start dishing praise to other participants. Learn how to dish good Praise.
All praise received is quantified and is assigned a numerical value to that praise data. When all praise data for a period has been quantified, token allocations are made to those who have received Praise. In the Trusted Seed community $TRUST tokens are allocated to members. In short: active Trusted Seed members can increase their $TRUST by getting and dishing “Praise”.
For more information about your TRUST score, you may reach out to our Trusted Seed Gardener Yineisy Mota#1449 on Discord.

🧠 Agenda Creation Process
On the day of the event, the following first steps will be necessary to get ready:
Take into consideration that there’ll be breaking rooms or separate sessions from the main event in the same link, so you’ll have the opportunity to openly join the session you’re interested the most and so you can interact with other participants and ask questions. Note: Participants not joined with the desktop or mobile app (version 5.3.0 or higher) will not be able to self-select a breakout room. The host will need to facilitate moving these participants manually.
1) accessing the Miro board and 2) joining the video conference Zoom meeting with the link shared via email to participants.
After the intro words to the event you’ll have the opportunity to scroll and zoom around to create the agenda.
You’ll notice that will be empty - just a template of a bunch of sticky notes with Title or Question and Your Name that you can place in the Room/Session you choose for hosting your activity and direct access to a section for taking notes. Example:
During this process, we’ll probably discuss some agreements like:
📝 During the breakout rooms dynamic
Trusted Seed will propose some timing around this but in the end, you’ll have the right to modify it and propose a different schedule always respecting the total start and end time of the activity.
- The host will need to invite you to join the breakout room.
- Click Join.
- If you choose Later, you can join by clicking Breakout Rooms in your meeting controls.
- Click Join Breakout Room. You will have access to full controls similar to the meeting.
When you enter the access the Zoom Meeting, you will enter the lobby room. Here you will find a complete overview of the agenda (the same available on the Miro board) on the shared screen and you can follow what is currently happening and what’s to come, this will allow you join the room you like the most. Plus, you can always ask on the chat and our Gardeners (Trusted Seed team) will guide you!
We’ll propose having breaks during our Opening Day. It’s important to always take care of yourself so try stepping away from the computer, getting a snack, refreshing your beverage. Consider stepping outside and getting some fresh air. You might even return to the lobby and socialize with others.
Enjoy a 2-week Open Agenda for having your sessions!
After the Opening Day: Enjoy our Open Agenda (June 15 - 27)
During our Closing Day (June 28)
GMT-4 (EST): 8-11
GMT+2 (CET/EU): 14-17
GMT+8 (Manila): 20-23
These will be the agenda so far:
We’ll keep using this Miro board in creating the agenda during the Closing Day 👇
Our proposal for the first activity during our Closing Day will be on focusing on meeting each other, share experiences and challenges, build a strong network and recognize the work we have done together with our Praise party. 👉
Like on our Opening Day, together with other DAO stewards, you will have the opportunty to discuss more topics around the theme or just decide together jump directly to the retrospective!
We’ll wrap up the Unconference by recognizing and celebrating all of the contributions to this experience.
Here’s a quick guide on how to:
- Activate your Praise account in Commons Stack Discord server (by typing the command /activate)
- Dish praise to all participants (by typing the command /praise in any channel of the server)
We encourage you to prepare your praise list and have it ready before the Closing Day! Need help with people’s Discord handles? Our Gardeners are just a DM away!
