[Code of Conduct] 0x Protocol Security Council

Our Pledge

In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as security council members and trusted representatives of 0x Protocol pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

Our Standards

Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:

  • Using welcoming and inclusive language
  • Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
  • Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
  • Focusing on what is best for the community
  • Showing empathy towards other community members

Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:

  • The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances
  • Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
  • Public or private harassment
  • Publishing others’ private information, such as a physical or electronic address, without explicit permission
  • Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting

Our Responsibilities

  1. Members of the 0x Protocol Security Council should always operate with honesty, integrity, and transparency. Any conflict of interest should be avoided or when not possible, mitigate its impact and disclose the conflict in writing.
  2. Members of the 0x Protocol Security Council should strive to keep up to date with their area of expertise within the protocol and the wider cryptocurrency space. They should use that knowledge when reviewing security concerns and make decisions that are in the best interest of 0x Protocol and communicate their decisions in a clear and public way.
    • The 0x Protocol Security Council is expected to publish a post-mortem when any action is taken that describes the security incident, rationale for the action taken, and recommendations for next steps.
  3. Members of the 0x Protocol Security Council should recognize their relative power and influence within the community and act as appropriately as a public steward for the protocol, its mission, vision, and core values.


This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community. Examples of representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a project may be further defined and clarified by project maintainers.
