[READY] [GF: Phase 1 Proposal] Boardroom

I’ve been concerned about voter apathy, and this is a decent solution. As mentioned in my post, I’d like to see incentives only go to those who vote for active delegates. While it does not strictly apply to Governance Fund, I think this is an important enough topic with a reasonable enough ask in OP tokens to make an exception. I hope part of the 20% is also used to raise awareness and make sure all OP holders know your platform exists and there are incentives for them to participate in delegation.

Reasonable proposal, consistent number of tabs requested. I think it is a good tool that provides useful information for governance and its participants.

Vote: Yes

This is a great product to simplify the workflow for delegates. We have used boardroom multiple times and find it an effective tool. The OP incentives are interesting and we look forward to seeing the results of this distribution mechanism.

Voting yes. This is an easy yes for me.

Pros

  • Very reasonable amount
  • Useful product. I think we should incentivize more products like this which create tools to make governance easier and more inclusive

Cons

  • Nothing really. I am just not sure if the plan is good enough to prevent Sybil. So the plan is to allow only tokens that moved/delegated during the campaign and only more than 271 OP tokens?

Voting Yes since governance (tooling) needs improvements & this adds immediate value to Op.

Value-add: Good
Amount: Good
Op distribution: Okay
Co-incentives: None

We had issues voting in the 3rd cycle (and consequently also in this 4th cycle) due to changes from Snapshot and need people to redelegate to our new address or to another delegate. Some commenters are worried about sybil attacks but the asked amount is very reasonable, not super attractive to attack while giving enough incentive to look into governance, delegation and redelegation. The preview of delegate cards is also nice - looking forward to additional improvements & Op involvement.

PS: Please redelegate from our current delegate account ScaleWeb3.eth to Superdelegate.eth !

@MichaelAtBoardroom would very much appreciate if you could also change our delegate address :slight_smile:

We voted yes on this proposal (via boardroom!) because we are in favor of supporting governance tooling. The amount of tokens requested is fair given the team has already built a strong product. We hope to see incentives combined with product innovation drive more users to participate in Optimism governance.

[Final]

Voting: Yes

We see positive the use of new interfaces and tools that help encourage participation in governance, happy to help in this (maybe) experiment.

  • Contribution: Positive
  • OP distribution: Appropriate
  • Co-incentives: No
  • Impact in LATAM: Neutral

Tips: None for now, just keep communicating advantages of using the platform.

Thanks again for all the comments and support, responding to remaining questions below.

Yes, the share of delegated tokens over time has slightly declined over the past month. Take a look at this Dune for more details: Dune

Thanks, and done.

Yes we plan to market the incentives program to the Optimism community via a marketing push once incentives go live!

Hi
I’ll be voting yes on this proposal :star_struck:

YES - right now I feel that the project is focusing on gathering all the information in one place. This is not too bad but is not that revolutionary either. I would love to see new, unique features developed, for example bringing more transparency into the performance of delegators etc.

I keep my fingers crossed for the continued development of the platform!

Project quality Mid/High - lots of potential for improving the space of governance and delegation.

Team quality: Mid

Amount requested: Reasonable

OP distribution: Fine I guess - Incitivize usage and awareness of the platform

Snapshot vote - passed
