Purpose: Improve the efficiency of the network governance through the research
    How should we govern networks (e.g. Ethereum)? Principles of decentralization, (crypto)law, self-organization etc
    What tools produce best results? On-chain + soft practices, decision making, execution, dispute resolution, radical markets etc
    How are current networks governed. Upsides and downsides of different gogvernance models. Update the Governance family tree: Ethereum, MakerDAO, Cardano, Grin, Bitcoin, Polkdadot, Cosmos, Decred, MolochDAO governance case studies. Development on existent governance case studies though deeper analytics and interviews with network stakeholders.
    What are most relevant problems for networks
    Decreasing the governance costs (0%)
    Making better decisions
    Funding public goods
    Increasing the amount and quality of interactions
    Improve org experience
    How to make collaborative strategies
    Dgov Adoption
    Research: Increase the probability and speed of consensus on protocol changes
      Identifying the tensions
      Creating proposals
      Collecting the signals on the proposals
    Is it better? when?
    What can be automated? What should be automated?
    What is hardcoded, what is in templates?
    How to make it better?
    How to raise more awareness and adoption?
    How to incentivize people to collaborate, rather then fork-off? How to overcome our competitive nature?
    What would the onboarding process will look like? How to make it easy? (rather wrong and easy, than hard)
    How to make this applicable for humans? – Grace works
    How to optimize the process of proposing? – Grace works
    How do we get the best, most inclusive solutions and honor everybody in the process? – Grace works
    How do we stop thinking in "either/or" way?
