StarkNet Builders’ Council - Mission Statement
The StarkNet Foundation is delegating a portion of its voting power to the Builders’ Council.
The Builders’ Council is comprised of 17 builders from the StarkNet Ecosystem, chosen by the Foundation on merit of their expertise and deep knowledge of StarkNet.
The Builders’ Council will vote on behalf of the Foundation during the First Phase of StarkNet Governance 14.
The StarkNet Foundation 2 has been set up as an independent community structure to support and develop the StarkNet Ecosystem.
The StarkNet Foundation will (i) foster research & development, (ii) foster expansion of the StarkNet network and supporting technology, (iii) promote use and adoption of the StarkNet network, and (iv) fuel StarkNet community participation and project governance. The Foundation will help fund and organize user and developer conferences, and coordinate cooperation with allied and related communities.
The Builders’ Council will give opportunities to builders from the community to help shape StarkNet. This is good for the network, as the greater the wisdom available to it, the better. It’s also the right approach for a community where tokens are not yet widely distributed.
The role of the Builders’ Council
Carry out an in-depth learning and discussion process for each proposed decision, with the aim to lead to well-founded decisions that will benefit StarkNet and its long-term vision.
Take an active part in encouraging discussions and votes during the first phase on behalf of StarkNet community members.
Ensure transparency of the Council’s discussions, decisions, and activities.
How the Builders Council works
The StarkNet Foundation will delegate a portion (23.3%) of the total first phase voting power to the Builders’ Council.
The Builders’ Council will hold an in-depth discussion on issues proposed by the Foundation and make a decision on how to act, based on a simple majority vote.
All calls will be recorded, meeting notes will be written, and posted on this community forum and a dedicated Github 3 repo for everyone to see, to uphold transparency and accountability.
The council’s mandate will be reviewed by the Foundation’s board after the end of the First Phase of the StarkNet Governance.
