Governance Forum Guidelines

Welcome to the dYdX Community

You are now a part of a pioneering group dedicated to shaping the future of decentralized finance. Our guidelines are crafted not just as a list of rules but as a manifesto that embodies our collective aspirations and commitments. Together, we can build a financial ecosystem that is open, equitable, and profoundly impactful.

Our Shared Mission

We are here to foster a space of collaboration and innovation for the dYdX Protocol. Your insights, discussions, and feedback are vital in steering our course through the exciting democratisation of finance.

Guidelines for Enlightened Engagement

TL;DR: Be nice to each other :slightly_smiling_face:

  1. Cultivate Meaningful Conversations: Strive to contribute content that is insightful, informative, and encourages constructive discourse. Every post should be a building block in the edifice of our collective knowledge.

  2. Encourage and Embrace Diversity: We are a global community with a tapestry of perspectives. Celebrate this diversity and engage with an open mind. Our differences drive our innovation and lead us to discover uncharted territories.

  3. Foster a Culture of Respect: Dialogue with dignity. Approach every interaction with the understanding that behind every post, there’s a person. Treat others as you would wish to be treated, and remember that respect is the cornerstone of meaningful exchanges.

  4. Support and Mentorship: Offer your expertise to aid others. Whether it’s guiding newcomers or supporting peers, your knowledge-sharing elevates the entire community.

  5. See Something, Say Something: If you encounter any behaviour that detracts from our community’s integrity, report it. By doing so, you help maintain an environment where everyone can contribute without hindrance.

  6. Promote Authenticity: Be genuine in your interactions. Post original content, give credit where it’s due, and abstain from misrepresentation. Authenticity fosters trust, the currency of our community.

  7. Uphold Community Integrity: Avoid posting content that could be considered spam, including self-promotion, solicitation, or irrelevant links. Our community thrives on quality, not quantity.
