Welcome to the sCoop Weekly where you’ll get a rundown of the week that was and where the Owls are flying next. Be sure to follow daily and weekly Index Cooperative contributor news on Twitter: @IndexCoopDAO

DPI and INDEX Now Listed on Gemini

We are thrilled to announce that the DeFi Pulse Index (DPI) and INDEX token are now both supported by Gemini. Gemini is a next-generation cryptocurrency exchange and custodian that allows customers to buy, sell, store and earn digital assets.

Thanks to all the Owl past and present that made this possible. We’re just getting started.

DPI to be listed on Aave’s mainnet Arc market

DPI will be listed on Aave’s mainnet Arc market. Aave Arc— a version of the software underlying V2 of the Aave protocol with additional smart contracts that allow for the “whitelisting” of users— is introduced to meet this new institutional market participant demand.

This is great for Index Coop because it provides a path for large, institutional investors to onboard into our products.

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

Who’s House?..Governance House!

Earlier this week, @Matthew_Graham unveiled the Governance House, featuring a new DeFi primitive that provides Metagovernance as a Service. Governance House’s goal is to unlock community and voter participation by leveraging existing skills within the Index Coop community and extending the reach of metagovernance across DAOs to support improvement proposals across DeFi.
