Endorsed Delegates Code of Conduct

Dartmouth Blockchain has just onboarded and abides by the Code of Conduct.

Why do you want to be an Endorsed Delegate and why should DYDX/stkDYDX holders delegate to you?

We are Dartmouth Blockchain, Dartmouth’s official blockchain club. We’d love to participate in governance to provide value for defi protocols, learn more about the space, and create opportunities for our members through this learning.

Some of our members work at Rari Capital, NEAR, and Index. We hope to connect our past learnings and some of our most experienced and hardworking members to opportunities to help shape the current trading platforms into the best platforms of the future. We think that research through governance could be a great way to help achieve this.

We believe in the efficacy of L2 scaling solutions, and we believe that researching the current questions put to governance holders as a governance delegate of dYdX could be a great way to assist in this. We also are in support of dYdX’s v4 mission to completely decentralize, and we hope to play a role in that mission through our governance work.

How will you connect with and contribute to the dYdX community and governance?

We think that one of the ways to compete with centralized exchanges like FTX and Binance is for dYdX to fully lean into decentralizing the protocol, enabling community ownership. Currently, dYdX’s order book and matching model is off-chain, due to technical and scaling constraints. However, dYdX v4 was announced in the beginning of 2022, and we’d like to be a part of realizing this complete decentralization. We think that bringing an order book and matching system on-chain is a fascinating challenge from a technical and governance standpoint. We are also curious about how the on-chain order book model will compete with the popular on-chain AMM model, as well as implications of liquidity availability.

To realize dYdX v4, there will be a number of considerations that the community will have to decide upon, an example being improvements towards the dYdX tokenomics. This transition will require governance participants to research, initiate discussions, vote on proposals, and collaborate with key stakeholders in the LLC and Foundation team. We’d love to tackle this project with the rest of the community.

We confirm that the information above is accurate and up to date as of the start of the current epoch and I will immediately update this Profile and Pitch in the event of a material change.

We have read and agree to abide by the Endorsed Delegates Code of Conduct.

We have completed and scored 9/10 on the Endorsed Delegate Self Assessment.
