The twin purpose of setting up the grantsDAO is to provide greater transparency and decentralisation to the project. All proposals will be available for public viewing at, meaning the community will be able to see at a glance all the proposals that have been accepted and rejected, as well as any that are pending.

These members were determined by rough consensus through our Discord community. In the near future we will look to expand the number of members via community consensus.

Potential initiatives that could be proposed to the DAO include infrastructure, promotional content, and dApp front-end hosting. But don’t be locked in by these suggestions — anything that contributes to the Synthetix ecosystem is worth a proposal!
