Council Structure

Following previous Council discussion on aims to diversify the Council structure to enhance present ecosystem representation, the Members discussed a plan for replacing two active Members, which will likely occur prior to the next Council meeting.

Governance & GIPs

The Members discussed GIP-0024: Query Versioning, and GIP: Epoch Block Oracle. The Members determined that these GIPs are ready to be prepared for execution on-chain.

The Members also generally discussed the need to streamline and clarify the GIP process. Council Members discussed the possibility of involving representatives from various stakeholder groups in the GIP process to help gather feedback and push proposals forward. The Foundation indicated it would dedicate operational resources to the GIP process to help speed up the on-chain signature process.


The Foundation provided an update to the Members on the status of projects under core developer grants.

Budget & Treasury Matters

The Foundation updated the Members on treasury initiatives, such as: potential community grant programs associated with migration of subgraphs to the decentralized service in preparation for the sunsetting of the hosted service; providing support to core developers of a decentralized blockchain ecosystem; and funding of other community initiatives that support the Graph ecosystem. A request was considered and approved by the Members for release of vested Foundation GRT treasury tokens to support the various initiatives.
