Announcement: unofficial Community Call - Thursday 12 Nov 17:00 UTC

Hi Uniswap community!

I will be hosting a community call this Thursday November 12 at 1700 UTC (9am PT, 12 noon ET, 6pm CET).

Everyone is welcome to attend!

If you’d like to present about anything related to Uniswap governance, projects building on or integrating with Uniswap, or something else that the community would appreciate, post in this thread or direct message me.

Meeting ID: 833 7978 0196
Passcode: 211409

Note: recording of the call will be posted afterwards.

Agenda / topics:

  • Introduction
  • Summary of uniswap proposals 1 and 2
    • Brief content overview for each proposal
    • Final vote/quorum results
  • Uniswap’s community governance process
    • Overview of current process
    • General discussion: questions about process, suggesting improvements, etc
  • Liquidity mining
    • Overview of current program (ending on 11/17)
    • Discussion for extending existing program or starting revised program
  • Other projects / integrations
  • Open discussion: anything else we want to talk about!

How can you participate/contribute?

  • Attend!
  • Present something of interest to you! Reach out to me so I can put you on the agenda
  • Take meeting minutes / written notes that we can post for the community after the call
  • Make graphic design collateral for community use (poster background for events/announcements, slide deck themes, etc)

These are just a couple ideas, but I’m sure we’ll find more ways to support each other as a community over time.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Thursday! :beers:

Hey @monet-supply, I wanted to see if you’d be open to moving the call by an hour in either direction? This is the same time as the Maker weekly governance call and I imagine there’s more people than just myself that would like to attend both.

PS - If you’re thinking the Maker call is at 12pm ET, it’s 11am now because of daylight savings

Yeah good point! I’d gotten used to Maker’s call being an hour later than it is now. I’m in favor of moving it so there’s no conflict :slight_smile:

Moving 1 hour later to 1700 UTC (9am PT, 12noon ET, 6pm CET).

Hi @monet-supply
I actually have one suggestion for a topic which I think needs to be addressed. It concerns the inability to vote with pooled tokens and how that directly contradicts the very core functionality of uniswap as a whole. in short, Uniswap is built on the premise of liquidity pools, where it is encouraged to provide liquidity so pairs become more stable. yet at the same time, providing liquidity in the UNI pools renders us unable to participate in anything governance related. there are a few groups who have found a solution by essentially forming voterblocks and asking their members to stake their tokens in their own pools, however this feels like a rigmarole which should be solved at the main UNI platform to begin with. more text on the topic can be found here Allow UNI tokens locked in pools to vote

Unfortunately I am not able to attend personally, however I very much hope this issue is looked into and discussed on a broader level. right now it is not suitable for governance to decide on since this issue does not fall within the scope of governance. at the same time, I do feel a fix for this issue could lead to a major quality of life improvement for the everyone in the community and the governance structure as a whole.

Thanks for putting this together @monet-supply.
It’d be great to discuss the results of the liquidity incentives

Great initiative. I wont be able to attend but would be interested in some meeting notes during the call.

Can’t join meeting. > 100 participants :rage:
Why would you put a limit? Makes no sense to me

I think they have to allow unlimited user to listen the fourm.

hey folx, sorry if you’re unable to join. my zoom license has a 100 attendee limit. I’ll see if I can upgrade if we do this again. A recording of the call will be shared in the forum afterwards.

Great initiative, thank you very much ! Hopefully I’ll succeed in attending next time.

I believe effective governance is hard to truly kickstart but we’ll get there.
