Josh here, governance researcher @ Oxford / Metagov. I’m working with Kevin Werbach (UPenn), Primavera de Filippi (Harvard/CNRS), and Gina Pieters (UChicago) on an industry-wide survey of blockchain governance, and we’d like to invite Yearn to participate. Since Yearn is collectively-governed, we’d love to see a wiki-style response from the community itself—think of it as the community’s perspective on governance. A member of the Yearn community has already helped us populate a stub response, which you can see in this Google doc. Please help us fill it out!
Participating in the assessment will help the community better understand Yearn’s governance and how it compares with other major blockchain projects, and help make governance better and more transparent for the entire ecosystem. All data and analysis will be made public at the end of the assessment period.
If you’d like to see what a completed assessment looks like, you can see a bunch of examples here from projects like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Uniswap, Tezos, etc.
Feel free to hit me with questions or to use this thread for discussions. The community response will be finalized on Aug. 31.
