Institutional Business WG (14 attendees) (slides will be added when available)
Opener: Latest book or article you’ve read? From Twitter to Coingecko to Messari we had the crypto staples. My personal favorite was a book mentioned by FunkMasterFlex (if anyone knows the handle shout it out) that I ordered after the meeting: Capitalism without Capital: The Rise of the Intangible Economy. Hardcover, because I’m a boujie Owl. Enough about me . . .
The CBOE is digesting the Set White Paper and there will be discussions in the coming weeks. The BitGo co-education initiative is progressing. There are two events shaping up with @Metfanmike and @fallow8 leading the charge on a Happy Hour event following Mainnet 2021 and @MrMadila leading the charge on Token 2049 in London. I’m sure @MrMadila would be appreciative of all the cross-functional help and funding he can get as there is a booth (and some serious swag) being considered.
@kiba kicked off a conversation that continued today; the lion’s share of the meeting was dedicated to a proposed revenue share program for contributors that can provably demonstrate a portion of AUM (and thus streaming-fee) was the result of their efforts. Preceding the larger Index 2.0 discussions emerging, the plan as proposed by @Metfanmike was comprehensive and involved a 5-year decreasing share of revenue from 25% down to 5%. The discussion that ensued brought in a wide range of perspectives, and although challenges were identified none seemed to rise to the level of a blocker.
People Organization & Community WG (16 attendees) (more on the missing slides below)
Unlike @Metfanmike who pitched a fire idea and didn’t post slides, @Pepperoni_Joe took those lucky enough to attend on a spoken and visual journey, from his days exiting university, through some great haircuts (I understand why slides weren’t shared!) and a Darth Maul costume, to today. There’s value in knowing what motivates a leader, what their perceived strengths are, where their previous expertise lies, and how they came to this organization. It wasn’t recorded, but if @Pepperoni_Joe ever does it again I would recommend attending. I think The Coop has a special place in the hearts of those that left a traditional job to focus here full-time; we’re thankful that you took the leap, the time to share your story, and especially for the pictures.
The live-action CV transitioned well into a distillation of what POC will look like as it heads into the Index 2.0 discussions and beyond. A broad discussion ensued that ranged broadly around the topic of labor organization toward productive ends with @JMoss raising some great points on maintaining a high-level of whole-DAO inclusivity. @iluscavia sees The Coop developing as a network-of-networks, which I found to be a useful model. The discussion closed out with @MaryQ positing whether it’s more appropriate to think of the organization as a ‘DAO’ or ‘Coop’ . . . * quickly changes Twitter handle *
