Compound Finance Community Calls

Every other Wednesday at 9:30 am PT there is a Compound Finance developer call in the Discord chat. That call is typically focused on development talk and not much else. A few days ago, the Blockchain at Berkeley club tweeted that Compound Finance should have a goverance/community call on Clubhouse.

I think it is a great idea to have a space to talk about Compound and governance regularly and try to grow the community further.

I propose hosting a biweekly Clubhouse call on the weeks there are not development calls. We all have a busy schedule, so I have posted a poll below to figure out what day works for most people. Once we pick a day (the poll lasts 1 week), I’ll add a new poll to pick a time. I think the best time would be Wednesday late-afternoon PT, so people associate Wednesday with Compound Finance and the evening so people who can’t participate in the morning development call have an opportunity to participate.

Please vote for the days that work for you. Multiple votes are encouraged.

Which day should we have the Clubhouse call?
  • Monday
  • Tuesday
  • Wednesday
  • Thursday
  • Friday
  • Saturday
  • Sunday

Why clubhouse? couldn’t we just do it in the compound-live channel?

I’m an Android user so I can’t participate😢.

I’d like you to use the Discord audio streaming channel :exclamation:

Hosting it on Clubhouse will help with the discoverability factor, as it notifies people when new events are occurring (whether it be for people or genres you follow) via push notifications. I’ve stumbled upon many cool talks I would have otherwise not found because of this.

It is becoming the go-to platform for freeform conversation in the crypto world, and hosting at least some of our discussions their will certainly attract more eyes and eclectic conversation (TBD whether this will be good or bad).

So, yeah I think this is a good idea to at least test out…if it is unproductive then we can always just revert back to what we are doing now!

the main drawback is that like @tatsuzou12 said - Android users will not be able to join. Hopefully this is worked out soon.

Thanks @getty, I think it’s a great call - especially if the focus is on casual / educational aspects of governance as well as “activating” non-voting COMP holders in an organic (and cost-effective) manner. Also would want to be conscious of relaying any key points or follow-ups from the discussion to this forum, since we should avoid over-fragmenting the governance layer when possible.

Happy to help “host” the room from the #DEFI channel if others aren’t able to do so - that’ll add an extra layer of notifications / discoverability for the channel’s 15k followers.

The community has chosen Wednesday. I recommend 6:00 pm PT because it is after most people’s working hours and generally far enough from the 9:30 am PT developer call that people should be able to attend at least one. Pick which times work for you. The poll will close Sunday night.

PS: the poll can only have 20 options, so I removed the 4 most unideal imo.

@TennisBowling @tatsuzou12, I think Clubhouse is ideal for the points @MasterofNonce made. I know that Clubhouse is coming to Andriod soon and I look forward to seeing you and other Andriod users online.

@franklin-pantera, neat idea. Send me a DM pls
