Hey Alex, thank you for your transparency around the OKRs. I would like to also provide publicly me individual feedback.
O1. Generalization of Nouns voting solution to zk-POPVOTE:
Your ongoing efforts in both browser and server approaches certainly make sense, given the constraints of Product Development capacity. Personally I think under ideal circumstances, focusing on one solution at a time before moving on to the next might be more efficient. However, pushing forward with both approaches this quarter seems like a reasonable strategy. As you’ve suggested, fostering closer relationships between the Guilds could indeed enhance our coordination and efficiency when that time comes.
O2 Implementation of Time Lock Cryptographic Service (TLCS) from Alpha to Beta
You know already my concerns with this service, but let me put them in written form just for visibility’s sake.
Whereas I understand the importance of this service for “Shielded Voting” and that requirement for the Nouns project, the chosen solution is not, in my opinion, the right approach. It will take the Guild into long and heavy conversations and support for something that was never the main goal, and that concerns me. As I mentioned, I believe architecting this as a rollup focusing on one scheme that can be proven onchain afterwards makes more sense rather than going in the League of Entropy approach.
Of course, I might be wrong, and would like to trust you on this one this quarter and explore the public service path you’ve started preparing. Just be mindful, this was never the main goal, and if you see it starts taking too much time, it will go in detriment of the main objectives for the Guild.
O3 Implementation of ZkRegistry from Alpha to Beta
I really like this one. I can’t see other way of solving this problem and solves something lot’s of players in the ecosystem are having. Also, converting this into an EIP seems like the correct approach.
Very happy with this approach, please contact with the Growth team and ping me if you need help explaining it.
O4 Maintain a reasonable level of dissemination activities
As every quarter, your Guild always exceeds at increasing awareness of the zk technology not only through talks at conferences, but also internally. I really like hearing your team members explain this technology that enables so much. Thank you for this contributions, really appreciate it.
In other order, I think it might be interesting touch other points along the quarter that could make the team more aligned. I’m sure you already plan on doing that as “business as usual”, I guess I just like them seeing written down for everyone acknowledgement of work being done and that those more “peopleware” problems are also being addressed. I’m talking about better defining the role between research and implementations/deliveries, or roadmaps doubts the team might have regarding the role within Aragon. Either way, wether it’s part of a OKR or not is another question, but would love seeing you putting some love to those concerns in one way or another.
Again, thank you for your hard work,
