It's been over a month since Loot launched, and about a month since our last update. We're working with some great writers to bring you long-form essays about big Loot ideas. In the meantime, here's a collection of Loot things from the first month.
Voted to burn the keys to the Loot contract
Burning the keys to the Loot contract removes the ability for any figure or organization (like a DAO or multi-sig) to ever act as its owner.
More details here: LIP-0: Burn the keys to the Loot contract
Voted to formalize the LIP process
A set of guidelines and standards for the lifecycle of community proposals and Snapshot votes. The framework provides a foundation which enables the Loot community to build consensus and cements the legitimacy of our decision making powers.
