A Clearer Picture of DSM Eligibility & Vesting

The composition and allocation of the Dynamic Staking Model (DSM) has evolved considerably since the framework of Community Ownership & Compensation (V1 proposal | V2 proposal) was introduced.

As it currently stands, The DSM is currently applicable to Priority Hires only per the passing of IIP-118 . In March, @Finance.Nest will estimate the cost for expanding access to the DSM to contributors of Bronze, Silver, and Gold Owl Level status. DSM access is not included in IIP-139 - Season 1 Budget Approval and will be subject to approval in a separate IIP token vote.
