Week of November 7, 2022
We’ve reached the end of Voting Cycle #8 — and Season 2. Thirteen out of 18 proposals were approved in this last round. We’re now in the “Off Season,” which ends on November 16.
Read and respond to the Optimism Foundation’s Guide to Season 3, which puts forward new ideas, approaches, and proposals concerning the delegate code of conduct, the Governance Fund charter, and retroactive delegate awards, among other things. (Proposals are covered below.)
Reflection Period: November 17 - December 7
Special Voting Cycle # 9a: December 8 - December 21
Moving to a Grants Council: A draft proposal from the Foundation to “restructure the grants process to overcome the challenges faced by committees, improve the proposer experience, create accountability for grant recipients, and reduce delegate workload.”
Protocol Delegation Program: Another draft proposal from the Foundation to “allow protocols to have a voice in governance without self-delegating grants.”
Both of the above proposals will be voted on in Special Voting Cycle # 9a.
