The initial Investment Committee (IC) proposal has been up for about a week now, with 18 votes for creating the committee and 0 votes against. While I’m jealous of the numbers we are getting on the new logo post, I still consider this a solid turnout.
This post is meant to solicit expressions of interest from anyone who wants to be on the IC. My preference would be to keep the IC at 4 members, initially. However, if there’s more demand then we can consider our options.
The IC will have some recurring deliverables and, as such, require consistent time commitment from its members. Here are some minimum requirements for each member:
- Participate in weekly IC & other (for example, monthly catch-up with GWG and monthly guest speaker sessions) calls;
- Consistently produce investment insights style content, whether macro or token-specific. Each IC member will cover 3 tokens (currently there are only 10 in DPI, but I expect it to be 12 or more soon). For the first month, we will be looking to create one-pagers/short summaries for each token.
- Meta-governance is an important responsibility for the Coop. So far, it is active for UNI, COMP and AAVE. Analyst for these tokens will need to understand their governance proposals and write up a summary as well as a recommendation for how $INDEX holders should vote on each new proposal.
- Be available to members of the community who want to produce investment-related content. The IC should support these initiatives in any way we can.
The above is a rough estimate. All of these items will be discussed on the kick-off call.
Given the consistent and recurring deliverables, it’s been suggested that each member of the IC should receive a fixed monthly payment, in $INDEX tokens. My preference would be to start small and make adjustments as we go. I included a poll here for the community to provide guidance on the appropriate amount. If you vote “None of the above”, please provide a comment. @puniaviision & @DarkForestCapital, let me know if there are issues with this from the Treasury perspective.
