Monday, October 24, 2021

Hello :wave:! Here are the Working Group updates from the last week. If you feel like you’re missing out, check out the calendar and join us in real time during any of our many calls.

This week’s Spotlight: Deep Work

  • This week marks the rise of our 20th Sprint, with more than 40 weeks of working pace under our wings, and a nest of >1.5M wxDAI
  • From these funds, The Initial Buy-in forum post proposes that we use 250K wxDAI to buy into our own bonding curve, judoing our Commons Upgrade initialization into an arbitrage event
  • By the way, throwback to our values so we never forget what we stand for
  • Forum Highlight: As always, check out our TEC Timeline here. If you’re feeling lost, lean on the visual explainers from our TEC Handbook here. If you see something in the community that you’d like to address, or some work that needs to be done, open an issue on one of our ZenHub’s workspace boards here
