As we look back on the year 2022, it’s clear that the Raiden Network has continued to evolve and grow. The Raiden team has worked hard to ensure that the community is the driving force of the project. We hope the community will take up this call and lead in identifying new use cases and opportunities for adoption.

In this post, we’ll take a closer look at some of the key developments that took place in Q4 2022, including the Raiden Community Manifesto, the implementation of a proposal process on the Raiden Network Forum, the integration of Shutter Shielded Voting on Snapshot, and the growth of the Raiden community on Discord.

Community Manifesto

In October of 2022, the Raiden community released a Community Manifesto that outlines our shared vision for moving forward in community governance. The manifesto lays out a clear set of principles for the community to follow: transparency, inclusiveness, and a focus on long-term success.

It also establishes decision-making guidelines and outlines various community members' roles and responsibilities. The manifesto sets the stage for a new era of community governance in Raiden, where all members can actively participate and contribute to the project’s success. With this manifesto in place, the Raiden community is poised to continue growing and thriving for years to come.

Forum Participation

Forum participation is a vital aspect of community engagement. And in Q4 2022, the Raiden Forum saw an increase in activity.

Community members created at least four proposals. These posts earned high levels of engagement, showcasing the community’s eagerness to participate in decision-making. The proposal with the highest level of engagement was titled “RDN Exchange Listing” by user ‘BusinessLion’, and it attracted over 500 views and 13 replies.

Additionally, October 2022 saw the highest number of views on the forum, with approximately 3,000 logged-in and anonymous users.

Raiden Network on Snapshot

A proposal process on the Raiden Network Forum in Q4 2022 was implemented to enable community engagement in governance. This move aimed to encourage community members to voice their opinions and provide feedback on proposals.

Voting on Snapshot

The Raiden team also launched Community Voting on Snapshot, complete with parameters for community voting by RDN token holders and the integration of Shutter Shielded Voting to ensure integrity in the process.

Discord Infrastructure

To continue the growth of the Raiden community on Discord, the Raiden team made changes to the infrastructure in terms of the onboarding process, channels, and categories of the Raiden Discord. We carried out this move to encourage more activity within the community discord and allow the flow of information and updates to flow through to community members with little to no barriers. We are planning exciting initiatives to foster growth within the community in the upcoming year of 2023.

Wrapping Up 2022

As we look forward to 2023, it’s clear that the Raiden Network is in a solid position to continue growing and evolving. The team’s commitment to community engagement and governance is evident in the developments of Q4 2022. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Raiden. We hope that this Raiden Pulse has provided you with a better understanding of the key developments that took place in Q4 and that you’re as excited as we are to see what comes next. Keep an eye out for exciting initiatives planned for the upcoming year, and stay tuned for more updates from the Raiden team.
