The sCoop - Contributor Newsletter - 2022.02.22 Tuesday

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

Today, Finance Nest’s weekly public-facing call, Money Talks, discussed current projects, tokenomics, and some relationships with partners.

Tomorrow, we’ve got a big Leadership Forum, hoping to finalize discussion on the future of the Index Council and hearing some updates on the proposal process. This is preceded by BD’s Internal Sync.

“Liquidity is the currency of the realm”

F.Nest’s Money Talks (10 attendees)

Current Projects

  • The topic of much debate, the proposed airdrop, will hit Snapshot tomorrow.
  • Nest budgets are being approved/revised and will be presented in next week’s Leadership Forum.
  • They’re working on DebtDAOs to raise a LOC $1.5 to $2m in available liquidity.
  • Contributor Rewards has closed for the month. If you did not submit, just add your projects to next month’s form. Payout will happen by next Wednesday.
  • Tokenomics design is in the works. Expect a well-developed forum post up by mid-March.


@Finance.Nest intends to make discussions more intentional, perhaps planning topics within the field for Money Talks. In the meantime, a reminder: There are three pillars of tokenomics, and they are:

  1. Index as a productive value model
  2. An overall tokenomics model based on income
  3. Unlocking the value of Meta-Governance
    a. Yearn has a check and balance built-in
    b. @JosephKnecht: “Liquidity is the currency of the realm.”

In other news…

  • We as a DAO are mindful of a potential multi-year bear market. We have two-year run rates based on reserves with zero income, so we will not have to adjust as the market changes. Successful projects do not have an income cliff.
  • FLI contributes heavily to our revenue stream, and it is likely to become more dominant.
  • IC is backed by several VCs like 1kx and Sequoia, but we are a smaller investment for them. For this reason, we do not involve them in all decision but maintain strong communications.

Shoutout to @shawn16400 for his diligent note-taking!
