Meanwhile at Cryptium Labs #1 Part I

Getting Ready for the Second Proposal Period

Bootstrapping a Collaborative Core Development Community

Every Tezos On-chain Governance process lasts 32 cycles or about 80 to 90 days. Taking this into consideration, to avoid the result of a live protocol amending itself in a dangerously slow pace, it is desirable for the current core development teams to not only collaborate, but also to coordinate with the aim of leveraging every amendment slot as much as possible.

Code is Not Enough in Tezos On-chain Governance

Unlike governance in other networks, Tezos On-chain Governance is characterised by proposals including the source code or implementation of the feature — and stakeholders vote on source code proposals. Although developing code is crucial, the choice of which specific proposal passes is entirely on the stakeholders’ hands. Thus, describing and communicating about the features and the options is as important as the code itself.
