Auditability Workgroup

In November 2022 we kicked off the auditability workgroup re-boot. The time has come for the third meeting and we’d love you to be there. If you’d like to catch up - here’s the original Cardano Forum post from last year.

Workgroup Meeting #3:

Last two meetings we worked out of this miro board. Please review the topics as we’ll build upon our conversations further. Recording and notes will be shared after the meeting. This invite will be circulated via email sign-up list as well if you have done so previously. If you haven’t yet - please reply to this forum post and I will pick up your intent there. Thank you in advance.

Always great to see the community diving into topics surrounding treasury management and long-term sustainability. What better way than to look at practical comparable instances in history? Check out the full length of insights from Tobias in this tweet thread link here.

Cardano Treasury

Curious to know what the current Cardano Treasury balance is like and how it trends over time? I recommend checking out the graph above in full screen via this link on or also this another community tool by Cardano Fans.

Weekly GitHub Repo Round Up

Screenshot 2023-05-04 at 12.56.03

One of the primary objectives this year is to make it easier for Community members to understand how Catalyst works on the technical side and to access the Catalyst technical backend to increase transparency in systems.

The major side effect later this year is expected to be around the ability of the community to come along and start co-creating/helping build/suggest improvements to these foundations.

This repo is the starting point and we’re seeking improvements to it throughout the months to come. For now, feel free to bookmark the pages and lurk around as we get it ready:

Community Events

Many community events are taking place regularly across the ecosystem. A great way to lurk around and over time participate even more directly. You can browse more via this link.

Get in touch

And that’s a wrap. Let’s talk Catalyst & governance via twitter, or telegram, or reddit, or wherever is your home online and keep conversations engaging on these very important topics.

Enjoy your day ahead!
