The sCoop - Contributor Newsletter - 2021.11.01 Monday

Fresh Owlpha, curated daily. This is @HOWweDAO . (previous issue)

Today, the Weekly Stand-Up took center stage as the lone Coop meeting of the day. PWG has moved to meet every other week and will return next Monday along with the APAC Biweekly Sync. Tomorrow is a packed Tuesday with Analytics, $GMI - Community Call, Wizardry, and a spot of TOC Tea Time.


Product Spotlight:

Weekly Stand Up (52 attendees) slides
@BigSky7 took his final turn in the chair, before graciously passing the torch over to @catjam will take over duties. On behalf of all the Owls, thanks to @BigSky7 for bringing enthusiasm, positivity, and a healthy dose of BigSky Energy to get the Coop aligned and ready to tackle the week. We’re in great hands with @catjam and look forward to her direction as Standup Leader

The Facebook/Meta announcement put the metaverse front and center and provided a boost for us and others in this segment of the market. @jdcook reported that MVI saw a 50% increase in AUM (inflow of ~$16 million). @caf from the GWG encouraged getting the word about MVI on Twitter and other social platforms. Impression mining rewards are available starting at 1k impressions.

JD also noted that the C.R.E.A.M. hack resulted in a ~$5 million outflow for DPI and ETH2x-FLI has now overtaken DPI and currently has the highest AUM.

@lavi noted that the GOWG is making progress with aligning and defining its mission to simplify governance. @mel.eth will be available for office hours from 14:00-16:00 UTC. They’ll be making an open call for MetaGovernance member nominations by late this week or early next week.

@Pepperoni_Joe highlighted the start of contributor tipping via Discord is about to roll out with Collab.Land bot & the trialing of Coordinape within the top working group. Don’t worry, Index 2.0 is coming. Joe and the team have been putting in the work so be patient and stay tuned.

Did somebody say party? :tada: @jujube invited the Coop to join her and the Women + NB of Index WG at their weekly call for a kickoff party (Friday 15:00 UTC). She also gave a shout to @Lfeld for her work, so go declare your pronouns on Discord: #pronoun-rowles. Juanna also provided a great breakdown of the mentorship pilot program (Cultivation Cohort) & WIC’s collaboration with TOC to revamp the new joiner form & onboarding.

@DocHabanero and the product team have a new product onboarding tracker and anticipate smooth sailing for iRobot. They’re now the Simple Composite Indices pod. A so fresh & so clean, clean-cut @afromac noted that the LINK2x-FLI product proposal is on the forum. MATIC2x-FLI is on hold due to LTV on Aave doesn’t currently allow us to launch a FLI product with a leverage ratio in a range that we’re satisfied with. Progress is trying to be made through Aave forums.

@edwardk from EWG had an action item for anyone that’s a multi-sig signer or anyone that can sign on behalf of IC. Check out this guide: Import IC Address book into Gnosis to shore up security. @dylan has Index Coop & Set EWG/PGW collab update posted in the forum.

@caf and @Static121 noted that Growth/Design are collaborating on video and educational content. Reach out to them if you have ideas and suggestions for the highest priority topics you think would be most beneficial. A “learn & earn” initiative is being explored as well.

@mrvls_brkfst gave a shout to @Etsuran for translating the Annual Report into Japanese - Index Coopの年次報告書を読む. @Mringz and the BDWG amongst other things have reconnected with SOL and working on a native product for their ecosystem. @fallow8/IB are making inroads and having conversations with asset onboarding folks at some of the major US-based exchanges. NO IB on Tuesday as they’re at NFT.NYC.
@Vanita gave a thorough rundown of A+P WG efforts to raise awareness and bring IC products to India and the Asia/Pacific markets.

@BigSky7 was pumped to hear about these worldwide efforts.

Daily DAOwlpha:
DAOs are absorbing the internet. This is true across dimensions:

  • Talent. Home for the internet’s most gifted
  • Capital. Controlling billions in digital assets
  • Social capital. Where bright minds meet & collab
  • Culture. Defining cyberculture.

Big :owl:shout to @pujimak_in for the assist in getting this published! Too bad no Collab.Land yet :wink:



@kindeagle I’m beaming having just read this. I genuinely feel well informed and enjoyed the process. You’re good at this; looking forward to being on the other side of the screen for the next few days - I’ll try and send in some reports from the field on all things Metaverse and NFTs!

I know what it takes to pull this thing together, and having the initiative to just go for it is everything. Thanks for showing me how we DAOd today!


Awesome! Thank you, @kindeagle ! Tough boots to fill but it looks like the Coop won’t be in the dark this week! @mel.eth do report from the Metaverse!

@Etsuran noting your mention for the Annual Report in JP :chart:


Thanks @mrvls_brkfst. Updated the post to make sure @Etsuran got the :clap:t3: for that great work.


Awesome work @kindeagle :tada:

Excited to hear the full on the ground reports from NFT NYC.


This gives a really nice overview to new joiners like me about what’s happening across the DAO, thanks @kindeagle ! :slight_smile:

P.S. The link to IIP-98 and IIP-99 are pointing to the same snapshot.


@Niket Thanks for the kind words & for the proofreading :wink:. Fixed
