Proposals to note

  • Sushi 2.1
Sushi 2.1 - Introduction of a Community Oversight Committee
I dont particularly care where it sits. I put it with Marketing in 2.1 but it can sit within BD, that would also make sense. The spirit of it is simply to create a formal person (can be a current team member doesnt have to be a brand new outside hire) to be the main contact point for funneling tok…
  • Community Oversight Committee
Community Oversight Committee Proposal [Part 1]
“The ‘COC’ will be given a yearly grant by Sushi, with the community deciding on the amount and also the individual salaries of its contributors.” The ‘COC’ are paid to keep an eye on the core team. If there are bad actors within the core/compensation team, the ‘COC’ can put out a proposal to remov…
  • Governance Process
Governance Process Proposal [Part 2]
Great proposal! Like HHK mentioned, it should be fine to let the committee whitelist per case. Once this is implemented, I’m happy to help promote it.

Community Oversight Committee

  • Because of Sushi's history, community feels oversight is necessary
  • Oversight committee to work hand in hand with compensation committee
  • Increases transparency on hiring, treasury funds etc
  • Boring & 9x9x9 are happy to fill 2 of the seats
  • Team Concerns:
  • Legal issues (Jurisdiction)
  • May not be ideal logistically e.g Small requests require multi level of approvals
  • Need to define clear responsibilities e.g Level of involvement
  • Who should sit on the oversight committee? Should they only be large Sushi holders? What are the ramifications if they sell their entire Sushi stack? Should they then be removed?


  • Ross has agreed to take the lead

Public Disclosure of Salary

  • Salaries should be made public as this information is already open to everyone on the team. Amount doesn’t have to be tagged to individuals
  • A proper breakdown of the 6M $SUSHI allocated to contributors should be made public
  • Wallet addresses of all team members should be public as well
  • Team concerns:
  • Not comfortable with doxxing wallets as it would make owner vulnerable to social engineering attacks
