The Index Cooperative was launched 2 months ago and since then it has seen an amazing community form that is dedicated to growing both the coop and the products that it manages.

When the coop was originally launched, 9% of the total INDEX tokens were allocated to a liquidity mining program that was to last 60 days. That program is ending on December 7th, 2020 and due to this, the Index Coop community have voted to extend the program by an additional 30 days.
