Thanks everyone for coming!!! It was a great call.

Here is the recording: August 29th community call recording.mp4 - Google Drive .

Slides: August 29, 2023 community call slides - Google Slides

We started this call with a “Praise session”, an idea brought by Bricia, since everyone is working hard and doing such a great job, is a gratifying thing to recognize and appreciate, including ourselves, the people we work with sometimes! So go ahead and check “Feel the love” channel on Discord.

All feedback and comments are welcomed and appreciated!

  • Grants cycle 14 updates from Dane: Check Cycle 14 Round up on the forum to get more details.
    • To see more information about the Roundups, how people scored, what feedback was given, etc, take a look to CharmVerse (Linked downbelow)
    • For those interested in making a proposal for Cycle 15, apply on CharmVerse before August 24 (19:00 GMT) to receive an additional credit for their proposal. Proposals are due by August 31 (19:00 GMT)
    • Also feel free to check the OP Governance Calendar to keep track of any information about dates of your interest.
  • One big announcement last week was Base’s introduction in Optimism Governance, in order to collect feedback from the community Base and the Optimism team made a post on the forums on How Base will participate in Optimism Governance, raising some main point such as transparency, participation, etc, as always any feedback is more than welcomed. We recommend this article from Base about their involvement in Superchain Base’s Commitment to Decentralization with the Superchain.

We finished the call with an open discussion, not only mentioning the topics above but also a great insight over The Superchain and Law of chains (Read the post for more information, comment and leave feedback). Also a shout-out to Bankless and their video over the Superchain: Crypto’s Endgame: The Superchain Explained with Jesse Pollock & Ben Jones, always great to see such active participation in the community!

Joint House #39: April 23th, 2024

Recording: April 23rd joint house call recording.mp4 - Google Drive
Slides: April 23rd, joint house call slides

  • Two proposals passed on Voting Cycle #21.
  • As season 5 is about to end, now is time to leave feedback: S5 Feedback thread
  • We had Ben Jones talking about three different upgrades are coming in voting cycle #23A:
    • Governor upgrade: all upgrades that are governor contracts, will go through a token vote. It will be a quite small upgrade; bug fixes, UX improvements, etc.
    • Fault proofs upgrade: fault proofs will be soon out to mainnet.
    • Modification to the pause structure: will be splitted into two proposals. The other one is effectively a role change in the smart contracts system, right now the Optimism Foundation plays the guardian role for the OP Mainnet and this is effectively the ability to pause the system in the event of emergency fixes, being too much control for the foundation to have directly, the second upgrade along with fault proofs, will basically shift the fundamental ability to pause over to the Security Council.

The Security Council will be able to unilaterally revoke the right from the Foundation to permanently pause the system in case it is misused.

  • More information will be out soon!

  • Retro Funding 4: Onchain Builders was announced:

    • The round sizing will be of 10M OP, the impact generated between October 2023 - June 2024 will be rewarded.
    • Sign up: May 23rd - June 6th
      • One of the topics on the forums post on what impact will be rewarded is “Interactions from Optimism users with high trust scores” this refers to onchain reputation. Data sets are being currently collected and the aim is to try to find an index of reputation scores or experiment with different reputation data to determine this.
      • Anybody will be free to create and propose impact metrics, a survey workshop will be coming up with Badegeholders to get input on what type of metrics the voting process should feature.
      • If you want to know better how the design for the voting interface looks like, there is a calendy link to schedule a call for user testing in the badgeholder discord/telegram channel.
    • Eligibility criteria: in order to facilitate the voting process, reduce low-quality applications and reward as many quality builders as possible, a more specific set of requirements was set for eligibility.
      • Read the forum post for details.
      • For NTFs or ERC20 contracts to be eligible it is important to be the actual person that deployed that contract, applicants will need to sign a message with the deployer address.

We are holding a Speed-Networking event on Zoom this Friday 26th at 17:00 UTC - 13:00 ET - 19:00 CET, make sure to be there!

    • Anybody who would like to lead a board or a council can put forward a proposal for an operating budget to support that board or council. It needs to be posted in the forums and be approved by four top 100 delegates by May 22nd 19:00 UTC.
    • Use the Collective Reward Framework as a guideline to assess operating budgets for boards and councils. (optional)
    • Protocol upgrades will continue to be voted on during reflection periods.
    • A separate AMA will be hosted the 21st during the community call to have the upgrade proposals authors and engineer team walk through those protocol upgrades.
  • Introducing Blockspace Charters: Superchain-first Governance

    • Is a new, technical-focused governing framework for the Superchain.
    • The goal is to acknowledge and address what is going on with chains using the OP Stack, and what the changes made in the code mean for the blockspace, basically to provide the same level of clarity that the operating manual does around the constitution for the law of chains. This is a way for the community to understand what are the different trade-offs that these chains are making and what are the properties that they have.
    • Consists of three primary components: Criteria, Governing Policies, and Precommitments.
    • Will be rolled out alongside two supporting components: the Superchain Registry, and an improved upgrade proposal process.
    • An initial draft of the Standard Rollup Charter for community feedback can be found here.

Joint House: May 21st, 2024

recording: May 21st Joint House Call Upgrade AMAs.mp4 - Google Drive
slides: May 21st, joint house call slides - Google Slides

recap:

Upgrade Proposal: Fault Proofs

  • No permissions anymore on who is allowed to submit a proposal.
  • Anyone can challenge a proposal.
  • When a proposal is submitted, the FaultDisputeGame contract along with the off-chain OP-challenger, will work together to either properly invalidate malicious proposals or defend valid proposals.
  • Main safety nets are an off chain monitoring system to monitor all proposed roots, window delays that allow the Guardian to reject the root and stop invalid withdrawals; and DelayedWETH contracts that handles bonds that people put up.
  • If this proposal is accepted, withdrawals that have been proven but not finalized will need to prove again.
  • A Sherlock audit contest was made, mainly focused on safety mechanisms.
  • The sequencer will continue to provide one output per hour, there is no limit on how many outputs can be submitted.

Upgrade Proposal: Guardian, Security Council Threshold and L2 ProxyAdmin Ownership changes for Stage 1 Decentralization

  • Increase of the Security Council Safe’s signing threshold, from 4 to 10, out of 13 owners.
  • Reassigning the role of Guardian from the Foundation to a new Guardian Safe with the Security Council Safe as its sole owner for additional safety.
  • Reassigning the owner of the L2 proxy admin to the 2 of 2 multi-sig that is jointly held by the Foundation and Security Council.
  • The concern that a high threshold of 10 of 13 has is around key loss of Security Council safe signers, liveness extension system provides a strong confidence that the Security Council signers are live, if they’re not, it gives a recourse to recovery, so every 14 weeks a signer needs to be seen simply by executing a transaction or calling the system and confirming that they still have their keys and they are live. If they are not seen during that 14 week period they can be permissionlessly removed.
  • What the DeputyGuardian module allows is for the Foundation to continue being that incident response actor while allowing us to meet the decentralization properties of the Security Council, being able to enforce the exit window. That means if the Foundation were ever to pause withdrawals and then refuse to unpause, the Security Council is able to remove, revoke the Foundation’s authorization to act as the guardian, and then the Security Council can unpause the system so that withdrawals can proceed.

Governor Update Proposal #2: Improvements to advanced delegation allowance calculations

  • This is a further enhancement to how absolute and relative vote calculations for advanced delegation users are made.
  • It’s a proactive upgrade we’re doing where there’s a chance that if you mix using relative voting power and absolute voting power with our advanced delegation alligator contracts, you could get into a situation where you’re voting with slightly less voting power than you actually are
  • Fixes the issue found when mixing relative voting power and absolute voting power with advance delegation alligator contracts and getting into a situation where you are voting with less voting power than you actually are.

Hola, @Michael
I have noticed that some slides are in blank, is that correct? thanks in advance :upside_down_face:

For these slides we were mainly looking at the docs linked (in the title of the slide) for the discussion
