Happy to answer your questions, thanks for asking.

1. Experience with Wormhole

We provide onchain data and analytics to Wormhole to help with research and answering key questions about the Ecosystem and its members. Our biggest project with Wormhole was partnering for sybil detection on the Wormhole Airdrop, helping ensure fairness in distribution and saving a significant sum of tokens from going to sybil accounts.

2. Transparency and Trust Initiatives

We recently partnered with Visa to develop a public Stablecoins Dashboard to help Stablecoin developers, issuers, researchers, users, and more understand supply and transaction flows. Of particular interest here was helping categorize organic vs. inorganic payments activity to provide more granular transparency on stablecoin adoption and use cases.

We also received a grant from the Uniswap Foundation to develop a public DEX Analytics portal for DeFi researchers to access open, standardized DEX datasets, helping drive improvement in DEX design.

3. Voting Philosophy

We believe that promoting trust and transparency brings great benefits to the Ecosystem, its partners, and its members. Frequent, open, and transparent communication provide valuable alignment that helps the community productively act together and grow. However, working with major institutions means we also deeply understand the need for discretion in situations like those involving sensitive or privileged information. In cases where this applies, we respect the need for confidentiality, as this also promotes long-term trust and stability that benefit the Ecosystem and its members in the end.

4. Conflict of Interest Policy

An obvious example here would be something like grant allocation to potential data & analytics partners. In this case, we would of course publicly make our case to the community on how our offerings, experience, and partnership with Wormhole make us a great candidate. However, we would abstain from voting on the allocation, as this would be a conflict of interest.

5. Community Engagement

We will monitor the forums here, as well as have dedicated staff to participate in relevant discussions and decision-making here and in other channels (e.g. Twitter, Telegram, Discord, etc.). When we vote, we will publish our decision along with the rationale for transparency and to reflect the voices and thoughts that contributed to our choices.

6. Handling Disagreements

We do not believe that governance should be an echo chamber. As such, insofar as there is not a conflict of interest, we will either vote or abstain in accordance with our belief of what is best for the Ecosystem guided by our principles of trust and transparency. However, we also understand that at a meta-level there are often cases where unity is needed, so we may also “agree to disagree” and commit.

Ultimately, as a data & analytics provider, we will aim to be data-driven in our decision-making process while incorporating evidence and ideas brought up by other community members. Our goal here is to be more objective, such that even if we disagree with the wider community, our logic and assumptions will be clear and understandable.
