Delegate Statement: Link

This is our very first message, so we want to let everyone know that we have just joined this community. However, we are catching up with the recent votes that have taken place. Before posting our position on various proposals, we would like to clarify that we were not able to vote on the following polls on Snapshot because we did not have the required 50k delegated ARB at the time these polls were posted. Despite not being able to vote on Snapshot, we still voted on Tally.

  • Proposal: Front-end interface to force transaction inclusion during sequencer downtime
  • Type: Onchain/Tally
  • Deadline: ended Jun 3, 2024
  • Vote: For
  • Reasoning: In spite of not being able to vote on Snapshot when the voting took place there and after getting to know about the proposal itself and made some research on it, we vote FOR. In agreement with the great majority of voters since this is a significant initiative and also that what was reported by the community has been addressed as requested

  • Proposal: Pilot Phase: M&A for Arbitrum DAO
  • Type: Onchain/Tally
  • Deadline: ended Jun 2, 2024
  • Vote: For
  • Reasoning: Although we were not part of this proposal’s Snapshot stage, after reading it all and centering on its benefits we stand in favor of it. M&A opportunities are always something to consider, and as the protocol continues to expand, this is a significant source of growth. In addition, everything will go through a pilot phase first, so that risks are minimized and adjustments can be made in advance over time.

  • Proposal: Catalyze Gaming Ecosystem Growth on Arbitrum
  • Type: Onchain/Tally
  • Deadline: ended Jun 7, 2024
  • Vote: Against
  • Reasoning: Regarding this proposal in particular, now that we are familiar with it, we support those who are against it from our own experience. And so do we. We do not see a market opportunity here at the moment, despite the huge possibility that games could contribute to Arbitrum’s growth. The reasons are quite clear and the risk of failure is huge. Nevertheless, as we have joined this community not so long ago, we can clearly see the whole development this matter has had so far from the beginning until today and we are quite aware that this proposal has been passed, so we will trust the people in charge that they will do a good job. We will keep an eye on how this develops.

  • Proposal: Constitutional AIP - Security Council Improvement Proposal
  • Type: Onchain/Tally
  • Deadline: ended Jun 9, 2024
  • Vote: For
  • Reasoning: There is general agreement on this proposal, as the indicated changes are in favor of retaining the Stage 1 rollup. Any single proposal that improves the protocol in one way or another will have our support, especially on security issues.

  • Proposal: ArbitrumDAO Contribution; Safeguarding Software Developers’ Rights
  • Type: Onchain/Tally
  • Deadline: ended Jun 9, 2024
  • Vote: For
  • Reasoning: From what we have read and researched, and also from our very own experience as Software developers, we are pleased to see this proposal from such a protocol moving forward. We are really thankful for the considered retribution no matter how much it is, but the recognizion is esential to what we do. We strongly support this motion
