Constellation Networks’ Hypergraph Hour Episode 46: A Deep Dive
The 46th episode of Constellation Networks’ Hypergraph Hour is a treasure trove of information for anyone interested in the future of decentralized networks and the role of governance in shaping these ecosystems. The episode features Matthias Goldmann, the Head of Stargazer Wallet, who dives deep into the intricacies of governance and the role of the community in shaping the future of Constellation Network.
The Role of the Sponsor in Governance
Goldmann begins by discussing the role of the sponsor in the governance process. The sponsor is the first point of contact for anyone in the community wanting to express an idea and transform it into a Hypergraph Improvement Proposal (HIP). They ensure that the proposal is fully fleshed out and written in the proper format. The sponsor is a highly responsible role, requiring deep knowledge on governance processes and the ability to code to review ideas.
Types of Proposals
Goldmann outlines three types of proposals that exist in the Hypergraph ecosystem: Standard, Process, and Information. Standard proposals are anything related to code, Process proposals are about governance and economic frameworks, and Information proposals are best practices or FAQs.
Community DAO and Network Governance
Goldmann emphasizes the importance of community involvement in the Community DAO and Network Governance. He encourages the community to self-organize and approach Constellation once they have a governance structure in place that can manage funds and further the ecosystem.
Open Roles and Future Plans
Goldmann announces two open roles in the Constellation Network: Governance Coordinator and Governance Evangelist. These roles are for deep crypto people who can spearhead the governance processes. He also shares that they aim to have Hypercore and the Lattice governance vote opportunity with DAG tokens up by January 2023.
