Dear friends and partners, here’s our regular updates on our work

Productivity: 20 points. We’ve outlined specific research topics and generated a lot of new ideas for research.

Research network governance solutions by Max

  • ‌Make clear the potential value of the Tribute incentive: conducted the design sprint, Phil Honigman has collected some interviews, are going to publish the results soon
  • Published the report on Getting more insights from the Ethereum Carbonvote
  • Increasing the volume of signals for Ethereum EIPs: we’ve applied to Moloch DAO to get some funding for our strategy, but unfortunately got the reject with a slight cliff. Anyways going to EthBerlin with Kirill and Bohdan to build the tool. Also having another session with Hudson Jameson to refine our plans.
