Voting Cycle #4: Roundup

Here are our votes for the current cycle. Brief reasoning is given below in project proposal threads.

A: Rocket Pool - Yes
B: Boardroom - Yes
C: dHedge - Yes
D: xToken & Gamma - Yes
E: Byte Mason - Tending to No, waiting for clarification
F: GARD - No
G: Beefy - Yes
H: BarnBridge - No
I: QiDAO - Yes

Overall, we mainly looked at alignment with Optimism and potential to grow Optimism (vs. costs). The Asks seemed rather large from most teams compared to last rounds. The proposal quality did improve though and we belief most projects can add significant value to Optimism (with these proposals).

My votes are in! Personally, much of my decision-making here has been based around the quality of the team and their willingness to listen to feedback from the community / answer outstanding questions and concerns. I expect some of the proposals I voted No on will likely be voted through once there’s better information / better terms are presented.

A: Rocket Pool - Yes
B: Boardroom - Yes
C: dHedge - No
D: xToken & Gamma - Yes
E: Byte Mason - No
F: GARD - No
G: Beefy - Yes
H: BarnBridge - No
I: QiDAO - Yes

A: Rocket Pool - For

Hi all - our votes and rationale for Voting Cycle #4 are below:

A couple of the proposals express meaningful incentive matches. I’m not sure what the incentive match process is currently (I’ll do some research when I find time), but I think it would be prudent to have a sound framework around the incentive match mechanics so that neither proposers or delegates feel slighted. Delegate for or against votes are cast based on the express match promise from proposers, I think this should be as unambiguous as possible prior to funding $OP tokens.

See my Mirror post for further Cycle 4 vote rationale.

nice steps on the growth of the ecosystem

Voted as follows:

A: Rocket Pool - Yes

  • Would like to see Rocket Pool gain traction as a competitor to Lido’s sETH as Rocket Pool is much more decentralized as of now. Competition is good

  • Incentivizing rETH will eventually lead to enough liquidity on OP to use as collateral. Additionally OP could become the place to be for taking out rETH loans as liquidity begets liquidity

B: Boardroom - Yes

  • Love this as we need a one-stop shop to learn about OP delegates then actually be able to delegate in the same place.

C: dHedge - No

  • Hmmm don’t like that users have to purchase DHT tokens either

D: xToken & Gamma - Yes

  • Excellent synergy between all three protocols

E: Byte Mason - No

  • Product was not even live

F: GARD - No

  • Thats a lot of tokens requested. I think this can be done more efficiently

G: Beefy - Yes

  • I have a high level of confidence that the liquidity brought into Beefy will stay there long term. 70% of TVL has up to this point

H: BarnBridge - No

  • Too mucgh $OP requested

I: QiDAO - Yes

  • Large existing user base from other chains. This will introduce many users to OP ecosystem who otherwise may not have checked us out
