The purpose of the Emergency Committee, as it’s currently referred to, is to provide oversight on progress of approved proposals, review new urgent or emergency proposals, and to oversee the receipt of proposals for new governance structures. To learn more about our worker proposal system plan, read the August announcement.

The nominees are from several different areas of the community, including existing working group volunteers, block producer team members, award-winning developers and outspoken community members. The characteristics of nominee selection were:

  • Representative of geographical diversity;
  • Having an existing role as an independent thought leader;
  • Displaying both strongly held beliefs and an exhibited ability to change one’s mind; and,
