This post is a brief introduction to governance, delegation, and some concepts currently being worked on with regard to our org structure.
Over the past few weeks in some of the weekly calls, you may have heard me mention that I have recently been working on some “org” or “delegation” initiatives. A broader more fitting term is actually governance. This brief post is a formal notification to the community that this is being worked on under the name [it’s in the title but drum roll anyway please ] Index Gov 2.0
What is it?
Index Gov 2.0 will mark a new chapter in how we organize and govern ourselves as a DAO. Broadly speaking it will seek to increase operational efficiency by further delegating decision making, spending, and control throughout the DAO. At the same time, it will retain accountability, security, and stability.
The original inspiration (and name ) came from @verto0912 ‘s Yearn Governance 2.0 post. It is worth pointing out that Yearn is a very, very different protocol and organization. Nevertheless, it provided inspiration and prompted some of the ideas that will be posted to the forum over the next few weeks and months for discussion.
Governance is a very broad topic and a thread that runs through many initiatives and forum posts both old and new. Posts such as Treasury Committee funding and FAQs, and, Improving the Working Group structure are recent examples of clarification and continual refinement of our processes as Index Coop evolves.
