DAO – Governance

This has the highest priority!

They discovered an issue with determining vote weight:

  • People tend to stake multiple times
  • People will want to re-stake their POLIS emissions back into the contract
  • Knowing people will stake multiple times, the team anticipated difficulties with accurately measuring vote weight. So they are now implementing changes, which will lead to a modest delay.

Target date: end of February

There is also a team focussed on global polish.
This is a new division, and their effort will be perpetually ongoing.
Primarily: cleaning up tech debt and taking into account user feedback

Kicked off the development of their own market program.
More intuitive user interface, more gamer-centric approach (think in-game auction houses)
Target date: Q2 2022


Major project and subdivided into 3 squads:

  • mining & extraction
  • crafting & materials
  • (new!) space exploration feature (using ships in different ways than just putting them into SCORE)

Target date: July


A lot of the visuals they shared and will be sharing are subject to change!

4 phases (David) – dev process flow

  • discovery: talk about what the project is, what it should be doing
  • exploration: wireframes, prototyping
  • validation: use prototypes and community feedback to help the team understand how we use those features
  • production

Target dates have been removed from the roadmap.
going forward: Inform on the phase the project is in. Before they release any dates, follow the process of the dev-workflow and then share the confirmed date.


150 employees in-house
