📝 Weekly DAO Updates
A collection of curated updates written by Boardroom Governance Scribes.
AAVE governance got to vote on a few important proposals this week, including renewing the liquidity mining program at a reduced rate, and adding Fireblocks as whitelisted for AAVE ARC. With V3 also around the corner, AAVE shows no signs of taming its shipping addiction.
BanklessDAO this week is focusing its attention on how to change the consent procedures for the next Season.
The Compound community has a landmark governance proposal in the review stage that would make OpenZeppelin the continuous auditor of the Compound protocol.
Big news at LeXpunK this week. They have been evaluating how to gain efficiencies and really be able to scale LeXpunK into a much bigger movement.
TL;DR: No active votes at the moment, some ongoing Forum discussions, and a PieDAO Bounty Drop!
V4 has launched, and with this comes new lottery pools and better distribution of winners.
The grant committee election was completed last week and there will be a formal vote within the next week to have them start their duties
A relatively quiet week on Radicle’s Twitter page again. Quite a bit of discussion on the Snapshot poll taken at the start of the month which has resulted in some modifications leading to the current live (v2.0) Snapshot poll this week until the 29th of this month.
Despite this, ongoing discussions continue increasing the awareness of Radicle, treasury’s role in covering costs for Radicle Orgs, and; new discussions regarding onboarding teams onto Radicle Orgs and removing the registration fee for their names.
This week’s update focuses on the highlights from ShapeShift’s 16th weekly governance call and relevant discussions around it.
