Community Nest @bradwmorris

Community Nest is thinking about Coordinape and compensation a lot these days, readjusting after impact is evaluated. The Discord evolution is ongoing , with contributors joining it slowly but surely. They also want to build something similar to Tribe DAO, a Community Health dashboard, and this is underway already.

Calendars have been migrated to the new “(new) IC ]|Contributor Cal.” Everyone with an Index Coop email address has automatically been added; if you do not have an IC email, every archived event on the old calendar has the public subscribe link for the new cal in the description to add it to your calendar app. You can unsubscribe to the old calendar, “(old) IC - Contributor Cal.”

Finance Nest @Matthew_Graham

The February Contributor Rewards process is targeting emission date of Friday. Pending Airdrop vote, @Finance.Nest will distribute these emissions along with Contributor Rewards.
