What’s new and in which direction is Index Coop heading over the upcoming week.

The Future of the Index Council

From previous weeks’ discussion, general consensus on the Index Council’s future is in favor of moving forward with Index Council v2. In this week’s Leadership Forum, remaining Councilmembers @Pepperoni_Joe, @Metfanmike, @LemonadeAlpha, and @Matthew_Graham presented their proposal of v2. The Council will remain with 7 seats: the 4 remaining Councilmembers will continue their roles while preparing for the 3 other seats to be elected (election schedule above). From then on, seats will be elected on an alternating schedule to ensure continuity across Councils.

Nominations will be flagged via a governance forum post; candidates must self nominate to be considered for the Index Council. Bronze, Silver and Gold Owls are all eligible to participate in elections. Silver Owls will get 2x vote weighting and Gold Owls will get a 4x vote weighting. Dive in deeper with the slides and proposal.

Delegation and Decision-making

Index Council v2 will be focused on determining Index Coop strategy, supporting resource allocation to deliver on strategy, and delegating decisions that lack a clear owner by empowering “win teams” to solve problems.

The Council may also be seen as a Resource Allocation and Strategy Pod, primarily recommending and driving activity on a particular topic and more rarely acting as the ultimate “approver” of decisions. The above graphic delineates the framework for how the Index Council will handle decision-making in Season 1.

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.

Web3 University Day - Twitter Spaces Recording

@funkmasterflex and @coolhorsegirl hosted Web3 University Day, a 2-hour Twitter Spaces directed towards university students interested in the DAO/web3/crypto space. They talked jobs in DAOs, education in web3, and opportunities for blockchain clubs with groups from Penn, Berkeley, and Cambridge.
