For those that have been not following along on Crypto Twitter, there was a lot of discussion over the end of last week / this weekend (7/8/2021 - 7/12/2021) on the funding of core infrastructure teams, specifically GETH.
For those unaware, GETH (go-ethereum) is one of the official implementations of ethereum, and provides the node software used by an overwhelming number of nodes (GitHub - ethereum/go-ethereum: Official Go implementation of the Ethereum protocol).
There has been a lot of discussion on their relative lack of funding and whether or not DeFi protocols should be donating treasury tokens to client teams / other Ethereum core infrastructure.
While there has been some discussion in individual DAOs (specifically Uniswap and 1inch) it is my opinion that this should be an industry-wide discussion and IndexCoop has the ability to take leadership in this discussion and demonstrate the true meta-governance power of INDEX.
I want to temperature check the community to see if we should have our meta governance board/ambassadors advocate across the DPI portfolio for each DAO to back an industry-wide plan to fund ETH core infrastructure (beyond just GETH). As a major governance actor in the major protocols across the industry, we have a unique opportunity to advocate for a unified plan and demonstrate the power of INDEX ownership.
Hoping this starts a conversation about our role in active governance in protocols in general.
