⚔️ 🦉 Gnosis Chain Weekly · 3 March, 2022
Welcome New Subscribers
Our subscriber list has gone parabolic! Hello 👋 🦉 and welcome to our many new newsletter recipients.
You may be receiving this Substack newsletter for the first time, which means you previously subscribed to the general Gnosis Newsletter. We’ve consolidated our lists to provide you with consistent and ongoing news relevant to the Gnosis Chain in one convenient, mostly-weekly, straight-to-your-inbox update!
We want to keep you in the loop🎢 going forward (of course if you want to exit the loop please unsubscribe at any time!). There are many exciting things happening related to the Gnosis Chain and as a member of a DAO it’s important to be informed and participate in the discourse and governance process.
If you haven’t checked in in a while, you’ve missed a lot! Token mergers, project spinoffs, integrations galore….here’s a few ways to quickly get back up to speed.
GnosisDAO is made up of all Gnosis holders. Participation is the lifeblood of a successful DAO, and a variety of opinions and experience are welcome and encouraged. You don’t need to be a developer or technical-first to post, comment, and vote. It’s important to hear from diverse points of view within the community. Checkout the most recent forum topics below and join the conversation ⬇
In 2020, Gnosis signaled its commitment to decentralize the technical and governance layers of its products by announcing the GnosisDAO. Today, the treasury has effective control of over 150K ETH and 8 Million GNO tokens. The transition of Gnosis from a traditional for-profit organization to a DAO means that anyone can participate in decision-making by joining the Gnosis forum.
To learn more about the GnosisDAO governance process, read this forum post on the topic. Participation is highly encouraged and proposals can be of a technical and/or social nature.
GIP-27: Gnosis Guild Treasury Allocation to Gnosis Ltd is up on the forum in Phase-2. The proposal would fund Gnosis Ltd. to support the Gnosis Guild team’s operations and startup costs for one year. The Gnosis Guild Treasury Allocation would foster needs-driven development of the Zodiac DAO tools.
GIP-28, a proposal to allow GNO holders to vote even if their GNO are invested/staked/locked in smart contracts on different protocols, is in Phase-2 on the forum.
We’ve surpassed 60K validators on the Gnosis Beacon Chain! We are currently onboarding new validators to further increase decentralization. If you’ve ever had the desire to run a beacon chain validator but haven’t found a spare 32 ETH in your pocket👖, you can become a validator on the Gnosis Beacon Chain validator for only 1 GNO!
Instructions are here, or follow the updated easy guide created by community member GLCstaked. Validators are earning over 21% yield. Data from https://dune.xyz/maxaleks/Gnosis-Beacon-Chain-(Deposits)
