What is FLI? Cryptocurrency Leverage Made Simple

@Metfanmike talks about how Flexible Leverage Index (FLI) lets you leverage a collateralized debt position in a safe and efficient way, by abstracting its management into a simple index, reproducible by a fully-collateralized ERC20 token built on Set Protocol.

Evaluation and Next Steps as Index Council’s Term Ends

With the term for the Index Council due to end on February 28th, we are seeking community feedback on the next steps to ensure our ability to address Index Coop-wide initiatives and our ability to make critical decisions.

If you haven’t already, I highly recommend that you check out the post in the Forum, vote in the poll, and express your thanks to those who chose to work on our behalf/provide your thoughts on the future of Index Coop leadership.

A Tale of Two Discords

As Index Coop continues to grow, it’s become increasingly more difficult to communicate and get work done in our DIscord. Despite the efforts to reorganize our server, role selection tools, and efforts on behalf of Community Managers, it’s still a very chaotic and disorganized space for contributors.

So the plan advanced by @bradwmorris @0xMitz and Community Nest is to create an additional Discord server so we can better serve the needs of both contributors and the community (newbies, customers, DAO enthusiasts.) You can read the specifics here, provide your feedback, and vote in the poll.

There’s no shortage of industry and educational events in DeFi and crypto. Along with taking part in events worldwide, Index Coop hosts a number of events to help people learn about crypto index products.

It’s Bufficorn…I Mean ETHDenver Time

While not all the Owls will be in attendance, a good number of Index Coop contributors will be hanging in the Mile High City and surrounding slopes over the next couple of weeks.

Our talk entitled Index Coop: Building a Decentralized Asset Management Giant will take place next Thursday, February 17th at 3 pm EST/1 pm MST. So if you’re on-site attending or suffering from FOMO check it out online.

For Season 1, this section will be a place to surface specific talents needs and contributor opportunities for Nests & Pods. Contact @coolhorsegirl or @kindeagle to create a listing.
