On May 11, the CIP-1694 workshop locations were announced. The call for applications was met with an enthusiastic response, garnering nearly 100 high-quality submissions from across the globe. North America, LATAM, and Africa were well-represented, accounting for over 80% of the total applications.
Scheduled from May to July, these workshops will delve into the latest developments proposed in CIP-1694. The in-person and virtual sessions will allow attendees to engage in rich discussions, addressing technical aspects such as governance action deposits, incentive structures for DReps, and voting thresholds. The goal is to integrate feedback from these global conversations into the consensus-building process of CIP-1694.
The workshops will be held in over 20 locations worldwide, hosted by diverse community leaders. The successful applicants are:
