A) I went through the proposal and found the sum of mkt cap, treasury, and # of voters to be fairly ambiguous, but a good starting point. Mkt cap and treasury size should be correlated. That said, the goal of the Index Coop is to create and market products, so I could see them pushing this through DG1. In the form it is in now, it will undergo so changes, so I think the opportunity is ripe for us to provide some feedback here. I think it would make most sense to approach the posting author with the feedback rather than first posting it directly on the Index Coop forums.
B) To assist, it is my belief that we need to bring a solution to the table. What I mean by this is I think we pick 3ish additional metrics that are focused on organizational health (contributor engagement/pay, voting coalitions, etccc…) and layer them into the existing proposal. Use similar weighting mechanisms as the original post and see how it impacts the proposal.
Outside of providing more visibility for Diamond DAO, what is the benefit of us providing this information. Are our efforts better focused on completing the MVP and continuing discussions with the IC community?
Do we know the original poster? If so, this might be a good chance to establish a relationship and assist with this index proposal. Streaming fees for these products are 95 bps per annum, with x% going (to be negotiated - up to 70%) going to the Index Creator.
No need to create a rift, but we could always create an Index that uses our metrics that focus on the Web 3 ecosystem. Actually, that would be a pretty brilliant way to market our MVP to a wide audience and a way to drive adoption. Let me flush this out more in my head, but I think something like this should be added to the “roadmap” once we identify reliable metrics across the Web 3 ecosystem.
