Mean DAO Update — Week 1 (Sep 13–20, 2021)
We just launched, and we are making a concerted effort to keep the community informed on a weekly basis of everything going on with Mean DAO, the Mean Protocol and MeanFi.
- We launched the public beta of MeanFi in Solana Mainnet on Friday Sept 17th, 2021. Read the announcement: https://meandao.medium.com/the-mean-protocol-and-meanfi-1fdf625b700e
- Last week we also setup up social accounts like the Discord Community Server, the Medium and Twitter accounts.
- Filled out the draft submission for the Solana Ignition Hackathon.
- Meeting with Kudelsky Security to scope our auditing process for the Mean Protocol.
- Working on developer examples and cleanup for the Mean Protocol in the core repo
- Working on the Decentralized DCA Whitepaper. It’ll be ready soon.
- Updates to the UX of the exchange, to quote source and destination token amounts in the user’s preferred fiats for easier understanding.
Things in the works
- Documentation and readiness for the $MEAN Token Generation event
- Putting together the community incentives program details for testers, early birds, and the retroactive gov token incentive payouts.
- Planning an Ambassador Program with additional benefits and rewards
- A lot of work going into the Block Tempo architecture that will be powering soon the DDCA for on-chain scheduled callbacks.
- Moving Universal Liquidity workloads from the client SDK to the on-chain program, to support easier distribution and better security.
On the operations side of things, we are learning by doing. Running an open-source software community, on the blockchain, through a DAO, with a Governance Token imminent launch, all on Discord is a lot… so we need some help… even getting figuring out how to source the right mods for Discord is a bit of a head twister… but fear not, we are on it, and we rather do it well, than fast. After all, we are only dealing with money, so what can go wrong?
The social/community pulse:
→ Twitter: 56 followers
