Vote for a SynFutures Mascot! New Community Proposal

SynFutures DAO vote: new mascot

If you’ve been following SynFutures for some time, then you know SynFutures is committed to creating an open, decentralized, and permissionless derivatives market. With that in mind, we’ve been actively working toward a DAO through our pre-DAO committee, FutureX.

In January, we held a community vote to decide which chain to deploy on next. Now, as we look to expand our brand further and grow our presence within and outside of the Web3 community, we need your help again as we decide on the perfect SynFutures mascot!

Why a Mascot?

While mascots have long been synonymous with sports teams, they have become a growing part of the Web3 space with the proliferation of NFTs and digital identities. As such, we want the help of our DAO voters to decide what mascot best represents SynFutures. This mascot will be seen throughout our leadership program (set for launch soon), as well as across other content and campaigns.
