The first proposal about the future inflation of YFI is about to go live. This might be a good moment to start a discussion about how to spend/allocate certain parts of it. YIP-30 allocates 25% of YFI emission to Multisig // DAO for security, development etc.
Since yearn is a project by and for the community I think it’s a good idea to reserve a generous part of the emission and use it to start a grant program. We can use it to fund projects/ideas that add value to the yearn ecosystem and beyond. I would have liked to see a bit more emission, not because I think more incentives are necessary, but because we could use that extra capital to fund projects like a grant program.
One of the strengths of yearn is its/the community, investing in it will pay off massively in the long run. We have created a lot of “funds” out of thin air, let us use it to make the ecosystem/Defi community/world a better place.
We could, for example, have rounds like the Ethereum foundation. Or donate funds to gitcoin grants to support the wider community. I might make a concrete proposal at a later point, but for now, I’m mostly interested in what the community thinks.
let me know what you think!
