L2Beat Delegte Communication Thread

Delegate Communication Thread

L2Beat is a delegate and an active participant in the governance of multiple protocols different protocols. To promote transparency and communication as delegates, we’ll be regularly sharing updates in the forums with our actions in the governance of the protocols we’re involved with (currently Optimism, Arbitrum, Uniswap and Hop). Our updates will include how we voted for different proposals and our rationale, discussions we are engaged with, and our notes from important calls/events we attended.

Update #1

As L2Beat, we had to abstain from voting as @Kaereste is a member of the Grants Council.

[Tally] Delegated Domain Allocation by Questbook - Voted FOR

Despite initially voting against the proposal (for reasons outlined here) in the Temperature Check, after long and diligent conversation with Saurabh from the Questbook team (which you can partly follow along here), we decided to vote in favor of the proposal.

[Tally] Fund the Grants Framework Proposal Milestone 1 - Voted FOR

We voted in favor of the proposal after attending workshops held by Pluralistic Labs and having conversations with them regarding their approach.

After raising some points regarding the proposal which were addressed by the Foundation, we voted for the proposal.

We reviewed and provided feedback to an RFC regarding a blockchain product development incubation on Arbitrum.

Due to technical difficulties on our end during the voting period we were unable to officially cast our vote, but we signaled our support of the proposal in the forums.

[Tally] Deploy Uniswap v3 on Linea - Voted FOR

We’re very supportive of Ethereum’s L2s, and we believe there needs to be an official deployment of Uniswap on all L2s. Thus, we voted in favor of the proposal.

[Snapshot] Migrate the Celo Uniswap V3 Factory Contract owner from Optics to Wormhole - Voted FOR

We voted for the proposal as it was in line with the recommendations of the Uniswap Foundation found in the Bridge Assessment Report.

L2Beat’s Office Hours

To further our communication with our constituents and any interested party in the community, we’ll be hosting recurring Office Hours on Google Meets.

During the Office Hours, you will be able to reach L2Beat’s governance team, which consists of Kaereste (Krzysztof Urbanski) and Sinkas (Anastassis Oikonomopoulos) and discuss our activity as delegates.

The purpose of the office hours is to gather feedback from the people who have delegated to us, answer any questions in regards to our voting activities and rationale, and collect input on things you’d like us engage in discussions about.

To allow enough time for constructive discussion, each Office Hours call will be specifically targeted at one of the protocols we’re delegates in.

Tuesday at 3pm UTC/ 11am EST - Optimism :red_circle:

Thursday at 3pm UTC/ 11am EST- Arbitrum :large_blue_diamond:

*Friday at 2pm UTC/ 10am EST - Starknet :fireworks: and Polygon​:link:

Friday at 3pm UTC/ 11am EST - Uniswap :unicorn: and Hop :arrows_counterclockwise:

You can add the L2Beat Governance Calendar in your Google Calendar to find the respective Google Meets links for every call and to easily keep track of the Office Hours, as well as other important calls and events (e.g. voting deadlines), that L2Beat governance team will be attending or hosting.

Delegate to L2Beat

By delegating your governance votes to L2BEAT, you’re supporting our mission to protect the interests of the Ethereum community and uphold our shared values. Together, we can lead the L2 ecosystem towards a safer, more secure decentralized future.
