Guide to Season 4: As a Collective

Nice, a well refined/defined post. I really tried my best and voted in season 3, although I’m not where near a big delegate with only 550 votes give or take. I look forward to what’s proposed in season 4 and hope I can follow along easily and vote/participate to help the community.


It’s very exciting to see the new framework for Season 4! We think the Season 4 roadmap is well structured and provides clear guidance on the priorities of the Optimism Collective. Very excited to see these initiatives come to fruition, and we’d be interested in exploring ways of contributing/collaborating with the community in an Alliance!


This is so great! I couldn’t attend the calls today, but if the videos are posted I will def try to watch them. In general, thank you for trying to align the community around this set of collective intents, its a great help to stewards like me.


First, I am sorry I have not participated much during the AMA as I am at an early part of the learning curve. In fact, someone said “infographic” and I thought it would be very helpful in understanding the guide to Season 4 so I’ll leave it up in case it works for anyone else. Thanks for organizing the AMA, it was very interesting!


Great development! Another milestone achieved for Optimism Collective!

Prolific experimentation at it’s finest. looking forward to seeing how this goes in s4 and the feedback that will come out of this.



I’m really looking forward to season 4.I always support optimism


I think that in fact we will have even more different events, which will offer incentives for developers and the community to develop the ecosystem
But I can say with confidence that the results of the last few months are very impressive and the activity we’ve seen from everyone in the ecosystem in every field really looks inspiring

Too bad I missed this AMA, but I think there will be more opportunities like this

I very much like the ideas and the direction proposed for Season 4.

My main concern is lack of participation. I could be proven wrong, but it feels like governance participation might not be big/active enough yet for a system with complexity like this.

I still believe that we should push on but it’s something to be aware of. One thing I think governance within Optimism has sorely needed is abstraction layers. Participants who operate on a specific layer (e.g. join an alliance) shouldn’t have to understand how the entire system works, but just the parts that are specific to them. It’s something to think about for those who are creating educational material.


Our first wave of feedback

Hi community and governance members, from our side we are excited about this clear change in methodology for Season 4 to cover different objectives and ensure that they are met with a more thorough system. Iterating on the governance of Optimism has always been a priority, and we agree that this is one way we can make this upcoming season different. We are moving towards an “optimistic” future but we also stress the efforts to make governance as horizontal as possible in a feasible way, we can achieve this with the different proposals expressed here!

As expressed in “The Optimistic Vision”:

The Optimism Collective is a new model of digital democratic governance optimized to drive rapid and sustained growth of a decentralized ecosystem. The Collective is a band of communities, companies, and citizens united by a mutually beneficial pact to adhere to the axiom of impact=profit — the principle that positive impact to the collective should be rewarded with profit to the individual. This axiom serves as a North Star, motivating the creation of a more productive and empathetic economy.

We leave below our first feedback on the proposals discussed for season 4:


@Mingyue we are so optimise

Very well done :+1:, I’m super optimistic.

Wow. This is great. We were iterating OKRs in similar direction (to fit into more decentralized org than usual FAANG s) in Developer DAO. Kudos for developing such a comprehensive and understandable system.


very good, super command

all duly noted. great to see changes and improvements ongoing steadily …LFG

very good. Great stuff
