We are only a few weeks apart from the launch of 0x DAO, the decentralized organization governing the 0x protocol. In its first iteration, 0x DAO manages and controls a community treasury seed-funded by 0x Labs. Refer to @nikita’s post for more details.
Leaving the technical details aside, 0x DAO is made of people. It is those individuals that are ultimately accountable and responsible for proposing, discussing, championing proposals, and exercising their voting rights via the ZRX token.
With that in mind, 0x Labs is gathering a list of bootstrap delegates that will shepherd the initial steps of governance decentralization. These individuals and/or entities will receive enough delegated voting power to autonomously create treasury proposals, and to coordinate and execute them with neither the authority, nor the intervention of 0x Labs.
In the last few weeks, we have contacted individuals and teams from the 0x ecosystem (community members and 0x integrators) to gauge their interest in being part of the bootstrap delegates group.
We are sharing here the current list, and introduce an informal vote of confidence by the community.
In the following poll, select any representative of the community you’d like to have a bootstrap delegate. Multiple choice is possible and encouraged (including selecting them all).
- @nenadp @nikola_j (DeFi Saver)
- @0xSHA (BUILD - Metric)
- @gabririgo (RigoBlock)
Feel free to comment here if you’d like to be included in the list. Review the ‘typical activities of a bootstrap delegator’ in the 0x DAO announcement.
Note: the allocation of additional voting power will be managed by 0x Labs following the community feedback and it’s not fixed in time (additional voting power can be adjusted and revoked).
