"However, LM rewards won’t expire until 63 days from now. I suggest waiting for more info on V3 before making a decision.
Perhaps restarting the debate around 1 month before the rewards expire is sensible?"
I very much disagree which is the reason I am making this post. The whole drama last month was because it had been left too late, and there was not enough time to discuss a reasonable change. To again leave it with not enough time to make decisions would be very poor DAO management. I’m honestly shocked a discussion post wasn’t created by the team immediately following the implementation of the latest vote, let alone in the month since then.
V3 is not going to be here in the next 63 days. As great as the front-facing team are, and while I’m sure the devs are fantastic, all we have for evidence is the last 6 months of slow output and delays. New trading UI for example has been being worked on for around 5 months at this point which, as much as you want to account for standard delays in software dev, is disappointing, especially in this space. It is wishful thinking to think we will have much information on V3 before we need to make a decision on the next round of rewards. We need to discuss it now.
Why on earth are the team so absent in DAO discussion? As much as you want to call this a decentralised organisation, and say the members of the DAO should take responsibility - in reality, it’s not. To my understanding there is a 50+ person team on payroll currently who are supposed to be taking the lead, and they have enough voting power to put through any decision they like. Their absence in bringing this discussion forward in good time after the drama which was caused exactly because there wasn’t enough time last time is just mind boggling.
@mbr - Where are the rest of the team? Where are the devs being active in the community? Why does it seem like no one at the foundation is taking responsibility for things like this? Why do we only ever hear from you and Nate, who are busy enough already? We can’t expect you to handle everything, so where are the other devs participating in discussions like this?
IMO the lack of organisation, transparency, and clarity around this issue and issues like it is really poor community management. There is a huge black box with the entire dev team encased inside it which the community at large is completely blind to. It would be totally fine if everything was running smoothly, but it’s not. We are stumbling over large decisions last minute with exactly one person from the foundation contributing his opinions to the DAO.
@yudi @ashachaf please, start taking more responsibility for what is going on in the DAO. Please encourage devs to talk to us and share their views. If there is a bunch of this already going on behind the scenes - then TELL US. Talk to us. Literally all we have is Mark, who is obviously amazing but is not a dev.
