Absolutely love this write up, thanks team!
We have one active, on-chain vote (see below), and several interesting discussions taking place.
Of note: A while back Uniswap protocol received $1m in $OP from the Optimism Foundation “to incentivize future growth within the Optimism ecosystem,” as @devinwalsh writes.
See Devin’s post and provide feedback on how the liquidity mining portion of the grant (80%) should be structured.
- Fund Uniswap DAO community operations through loans on Fringe Finance. This discussion continues from last week (see summary above).
- Here’s a request to “add Ethereum Fair and Ethereum POW to the UI.”
- None active this week

- Deploy Uniswap V3 on zkSync (2.25). Franklin DAO is partnering with Matter Labs to put forward this proposal to deploy Uniswap V3 on zkSync “to support Uniswap’s multichain mission and expand cross-chain experiences.”
Voting for the above proposal ends on October 14.
Here’s to trying to get a better understanding of Uniswap governance.

Check out all the other events happening in Uniswap Discord. There were several this past week, and there are several coming up.
The proposal to deploy Uniswap V3 on zkSync passed, and we’ve got consensus on paths forward for the Optimism-Uniswap liquidity mining program.
- Optimism-Uniswap Protocol LM Program: Pool selection.This Snapshot poll ended this morning with 96% voting for the WETH/USDC & WETH/DAI pools.
- Optimism-Uniswap Protocol LM Program: Structure. This Snapshot poll ended with 96% voting for a three-phase deployment. (Note the recent clarifying post from @devinwalsh.)
- Deploy Uniswap V3 on zkSync (2.25). This proposal succeeded with nearly 100% voting “for” and has been executed.
Fee switch thoughts: @logart123 thinks “we need to align the interests of UNI hodlers and LP’s and at the same time increase demand for the token,” and shares their ideas about how.
A reminder to delegate your UNI, to yourself or others, if you want to participate in governance.

It’s been a pretty quiet week on the governance front — except for that Binance thing.

It’s kinda quiet around here.

It’s survey season! Take them all to help form the future: Here’s one about creating a pro user interface, one about the Fee Switch, one about governance participation, and one for testing a DAO proposal feed.
Nothing active this week.
There’s a vote planned for November / December on the three test pools for fee sharing on Uniswap V3.
Take the survey to beta-test Holdim, a feed for DAO proposals.
And take this survey on governance participation from Harvard/Abra, which is “aimed in the long run to introduce novel ‘hive mind’ mechanisms.”

Check out Alastor’s fee switch report noted below. A vote on the fee switch could be forthcoming in early December.
- [Temperature Check] Deploy Uniswap V3 to Boba Network. This proposal passed on November 17 with nearly 100% voting “yes.” It was intended to determine community sentiment regarding the idea of deploying Uniswap V3 on Boba Network — as the title indicates. Boba is a multi-chain L2 already deployed on Ethereum, Avalanche, BNB, and Moonbeam, and utilizes something called Hybrid Compute, which allows “developers and creators to leverage off-chain compute and real-world data.”

Introduction to Uniswap V3 coming up tomorrow in Discord. November 22, 18:00 UTC.
There’s been increased activity — and some important reflection on Uniswap governance processes.
[RFC]: Community Governance Process Changes. @devinwalsh from the Uniswap Foundation restarts a conversation about adjusting the Uniswap governance process, primarily to “reduce overhead” and “enhance off-chain signaling.” The main changes are: replace the first Snapshot poll (a temp-check, as below for example) with a request-for-comment (RFC) post in the forum (such as this very one); and increase the quorum to 5M UNI for the remaining Snapshot (the “consensus check”). The intention to formalize a process for future changes to off-chain governance components is also expressed. A Snapshot for this proposal will be posted on December 12.
Leave your comments on the proposed process changes.
[Temperature Check]: Deploy Uniswap V3 on Scroll. This proposal to deploy on Scroll, a “native zkEVM Layer 2 solution for Ethereum,” was just posted to the forums this morning. The Snapshot is set to go live on December 1.
[Temperature Check]: Fix the Cross Chain Messaging Bridge on Arbitrum. Uniswap deployments on chains other than Ethereum do not have native access on-chain Uniswap governance, meaning that governance decisions must passed along from Ethereum to other chains via a messaging system. With this proposal, @bharat_eth suggests a fix for the currently “mis-configured” method of cross-chain communication with Uniswap’s Arbitrum deployment.
[Consensus Check]: Deploy Uniswap V3 to Boba Network. This proposal passed on November 24 with 78% voting in favor. In their considered dissent, @GFXlabs suggest that it might be time “to set up a framework/checklist for future Uniswap v3 deployments” to make sure upsides and downsides are fully taken into account by the community.

Several important discussions happening in the Uniswap community this week, including those having to do with the “fee switch” and governance process changes. See more on both below.
[Temperature Check]: Deploy Uniswap V3 on Scroll. This proposal passed on December 4 with 74% voting “Yes.”
[Consensus Check]: Fix the Cross Chain Messaging Bridge on Arbitrum. This proposal passed on December 3 with 100% voting “Yes.”
Happy birthday beacon chain!
Keep your eye on the events section in Discord for details on the next community call — and lots of other interesting calls that may or may not be related to governance.
The proposed community governance process changes are going to be put to a vote on Snapshot on Wednesday, December 14. There is at least one open question that could use more community feedback — take a look at the latest version of the proposal.
The important “fee switch” discussion continues, with several new posts since last week. Keep up to date with this thread.
No proposals active this past week, but keep your eye out for important ones coming up.

Uniswap Community Call coming up in Discord this Wednesday, December 14 (21:00 UTC).
Several important discussions and proposals sit before the Uniswap community.
As you consider each, also take some time to read through FranklinDAO’s recently posted (and excellent) “Deep Dive” on Uniswap’s governance.
Update on the “fee switch” discussion: After constructive feedback, @Leighton writes about shifting the approach and creating a legal entity before proceeding to a proposal. This will take several weeks. In the meantime, it is good to see that “the simple posting and planning for the vote also generated a high level of engagement from new and existing stakeholders.”
[On-chain] Fix the Cross Chain Messaging Bridge on Arbitrum. This proposal suggests a fix for the currently “mis-configured” method of cross-chain communication with Uniswap’s Arbitrum deployment.
[On-chain] Deploy Uniswap V3 to Boba Network. Boba is a multi-chain L2 already deployed on Ethereum, Avalanche, BNB, and Moonbeam.
