Governed by The Community

After the announcement of Raiden’s feature-complete state, the Raiden Community is ready to make decisions and lead discussions around the network.

On September 15th, the team behind Raiden released a blog post “Raiden Community Governance” detailing the steps and methodology behind the process of creating a proposal to the Raiden Forum.

In order to move forward with such an initiative, a Raiden Forum was later created on Discourse.

Raiden Forum Emerges

The Raiden Forum Announcement was released on September 29th. Raiden has paved a way for Community Governance to empower community-led discussions and decisions via setting up a Raiden Forum. This is how we’re moving forward with the Raiden community by our side.

The newly formed Raiden Forum encourages discussions, comments, feedback and consensus to take place amongst community participants.

What Has Been Achieved?

Three proposals are currently ongoing and finding its way to find approval through community consensus from comments, feedback and likes on each proposal. Each proposal has received intuitive and positive feedback since they went live.

  1. Raiden Community Manifesto: The Raiden Manifesto has been laid out to prioritize our mission and values as we transition into empowering community governance.
  2. Community Voting on Snapshot: The Community Voting proposal was shared by the Raiden Trust underlining how a community proposal on the Raiden Forum can look like and brought to Snapshot by RDN token holders on Snapshot for voting.
  3. RDN Token Listing: This was proposed by a Raiden community member who goes by “BusinessLion” on Discourse. The proposal sets out to find consensus on accessibility to acquire RDN tokens from multiple exchanges. As for now, RDN can only be acquired predominantly on

Community Updates

In Q3 2022, The Raiden community on Discord has grown significantly since the move to the chatting platform used by most Web3 projects. The team is working on strategies to implement to encourage the community to take part in engaging with the Raiden Forum and to create and vote on proposals.

Additionally, the Raiden team is looking into Membership NFTs to reward contributors and holders of the RDN token.
