Governance

By delegating your governance votes to L2BEAT, you're supporting our mission to protect the interests of the Ethereum community and uphold our shared values. Together, we can lead the L2 ecosystem towards a safer, more secure decentralized future.

If you’d like to see us act as a delegate in another protocol, please let us know and we’ll see what we can do.

Office hours

To promote transparency and communication as delegates, we’re hosting recurring Office Hours on Google Meets.

During the Office Hours, anyone is able to reach L2BEAT’s governance team, which consists of Kaereste (Krzysztof Urbanski) and Sinkas (Anastassis Oikonomopoulos) and discuss our activity as delegates.

To allow enough time for constructive discussion, each Office Hours call will be specifically targeted at one of the protocols we’re delegates in.

Our approach

We recognize that achieving successful decentralized governance stands as a vital challenge within the blockchain realm. Our goal is to actively contribute to governance across the Ethereum ecosystem, ensuring that L2 solutions evolve towards a more secure, decentralized, and trustworthy future.

For us, governance isn't just about casting a vote. The real magic happens during healthy debates and coming to conclusions together. Voting should just be the cherry on top of a great community-driven process.

As a governance delegate, we hold the following core values:

  • Transparency & Open Communication: We believe in being open about our decision-making process and keeping the community informed about any proposals or issues we discuss.
  • Community Focus: Our top priority is to always consider the community's needs and interests in every decision we make.
  • Inclusiveness: We're committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment, where everyone's voice is heard, regardless of their background or experience.
  • Accountability: We value accountability and are always open to feedback, which helps us continually improve and better serve our community.

Our mission

At L2BEAT we believe that crypto is the new infrastructure for the future financial system. As such, we believe that in order for it to be successful, it needs to be:

  • Permissionless, no one should need a third party's permission to join the network,
  • Censorship resistant, everyone should be free from arbitrary censorship,
  • Trustless, it's all about cryptographic proofs and consensus, not trusting a central party,
  • Decentralized, power and control should be spread across many participants,
  • Transparent, everyone should be able to verify and account for transactions, even if they're private,
  • Secure and safe, user safety and security come first, not relying on anyone acting honestly.
  • Open-source, we live by "don't trust, verify," so if we can't see the code, we can't trust it.

We believe that right now the best ecosystem where those values could be represented and cherished is Ethereum together with its L2s. While we respect and value other blockchains and people building on top of them, we chose to be selective with our focus.
