Rationale for the DAO
The cryptocurrency landscape is evolving more rapidly than ever. Market cycles that once took years to play out now evolve in the span of months. The rise of Bitcoin and Ethereum have generated massive interest and funding. Also, the market is now benefiting from a period of intensive development and innovation that took place between 2017 and 2019 (and continues to this day).
Because of this, Ample and other elastic assets are facing an intensely competitive landscape where teams are building and regularly releasing new elastic finance assets. However, it is imperative that robust and well-considered use cases for elastic finance solutions be aggressively developed and released to the market.
As an independent, community powered organization, the AmpleSense DAO’s primary goal is to foster the development of a diverse and high-impact ecosystem of products and services utilizing Ample and other select, high-quality elastic assets.
Note: It is not within the DAO’s mandate to provide governance for the Ampleforth protocol itself (or for elastic protocols not developed solely by the DAO).
How is the DAO Supported?
The DAO’s initial operations (Web properties, smart contracts, etc.) were funded by its three founders. Click here for an overview of the DAO’s Treasury, which supports ongoing operations. DAO Treasury expenditures are subject to community review and approval.
The AmpleSense DAO Community Hub
The AmpleSense Community Hub is a custom-built social networking and governance platform developed by the DAO. The Hub is where proposals that benefit the elastic finance ecosystem are submitted, discussed and approved by the community. Its other purpose is to help create a global network of elastic finance users and boosters by improving awareness, adoption and understanding of the elastic finance subsector globally.
