SNXweave is a grantsDAO initiative to improve communication and transparency across the Synthetix ecosystem. This podcast will give quick weekly recaps of news and important updates from the Spartan Council, Core Contributors, gDAO, and aDAO. As we get closer to the end of the epoch, there will be more discussion that focuses on the individual outlooks, voting trajectories, debating arguments, and overall values of various DAO members, in order to help support well-informed voting around election time.

Spartan Council Panel - September 2022 Live Election Special
Spartan Council Panel - September 2022 Live Election Special
SNXweave presents a LIVE panel-style interview with this epoch's Spartan Council candidates. Panelists: -Adam Cochran -Afif -Andrea (representing Synthetix Italia) -Bojan -Burt Rock -Darius -Ethernaut -Ksett -TerraBellus -Troy Questions Asked: 1. Please give a brief introduction, including any unique experiences or views that you bring to the Spartan Council.  2. Open ended question on non-SNX collateral in V3: what does this look like, what collateral types might work, how would inflation/fees factor in, etc?  3. Open ended question on inflation: what should it be short & long term, what should it be used for, etc?  4. Many in the community have noted protocols like GMX seemingly coming out of nowhere while Synthetix has made relatively slow progress on iteration of its perpetual futures offering. With that in mind, two questions:
-What can be done to improve the level of urgency and speed of reaction from the Spartan Council and greater Synthetix DAO?
-What ideas do you have for trading usage being incentivized in a sustainable manner to drive more parity with other perpetual futures protocols?  5. How has Synthetix fared relative to the competition? What is your understanding of a good faith timeline for system upgrades and roadmap improvements as of now?  6. Do you think V3 will help accelerate more adoption of the Synthetix protocol? What features of V3 do you think will be most effective in doing so?  7. What are your thoughts on the best way to scale sUSD?  8. One thing that has been cited as a reason for higher volumes on certain platforms like GMX is that they have a fast centralized oracle, which can allow for lower fees. How do you feel about running a centralized oracle? Would you be open to Synthetix running one if it meant much higher fees/revenue/volume?  9. Would you support a SIP to decentralize staking frontends? If yes, what sort of structure do you imagine for such an arrangement?  10. Which of the projects that are integrated with Synthetix excites you the most, and why? Where do you see this going - what is your vision for Synthetix and this project, and how do we get there?

Spartan Council Panel - June 2022 Live Election Special
SNXweave presents a LIVE panel-style interview with this epoch's Spartan Council candidates. Panelists: -Afif -Burt Rock -Calavera -Ksett -Kain -Redmarglar -TerraBellus Questions Asked: Question 1: Please give a brief introduction, including any unique experiences or views that you bring to the Spartan Council. Question 2: How successful can Synthetix be, compared to the traditional derivatives systems? What can realistically be achieved if it all goes according to plan? Question 3: What strategy do you think will move us to a place where the majority of rewards come from protocol transaction fees in sUSD, and less from SNX inflation? Question 4: What are your thoughts on the recent discussions about what the C-ratio should be for staking SNX? Question 5: Given recent events: what are your thoughts on merging trading fee pools across SNX instances (L1/L2/...) in the future? Question 6: Do you believe the current SNX inflation is sustainable or not? If not, to what do you suggest? Question 7: What is the future cross-chain SYNTH strategy? Is this dependent on V3 or is there something currently in development that can be implemented sooner? Question 8: What is your view on the current structure of this policy and do you think there should be any updates or amendments in the pipeline for it that would entice more developers to come build on Synthetix? Question 9: What is your opinion on diverting inflationary rewards as trading incentives to perpetual futures? If you support this idea, how would you structure it? Question 10: Are there any specific partnerships with other Protocols that you would like to see implemented, and why?

Spartan Council Panel - March 2022 Live Election Special
Spartan Council Panel - March 2022 Live Election Special
SNXweave presents a LIVE panel-style interview with this epoch's Spartan Council candidates. Panelists: -Afif -Calavera -Danijel -JVK -Ksett -Mark -Redmarglar -TerraBellus Questions Asked: Question 1: What do you want to see achieved by the Council in the short-term and long-term for the Synthetix protocol, and what will your contribution be? More specifically, what 1 major milestone would you give the most priority to, for the rest of the year, if you were the benevolent dictator?  Question 2: How many synths do you hope to have live by the end of next epoch (June 2022)?  Question 3: Decentralization and self custody may not a priority for every user. How do you expect L2 futures trading platforms will be able to compete with CEXs in this context? Question 4: If you could make ONE unilateral change to the way Synthetix works (governance, protocol, etc.) what would it be and why?  Question 5: What do you see as the next major client/user-focused product that will come after Futures?  Question 6: Assuming Synth Teleporters work and are deployed soon, which L2s or EVM chains would you prioritize as a "first launch" beyond Mainnet and Optimistic Ethereum, and why?  Question 7: Thanks to wrappers, the ETH skew is largely negative for the protocol, posing a significant risk to stakers in a bearish market. What's your opinion on unwinding ETH wrappers with DAI and its collateral risk? What are the alternatives to fixing the skew and risk?  Question 8: How do you think things are going with the campaign to get more market SNX staked? Is there something more that is or should be done?  Question 9: What do you think is the biggest challenge facing the Spartan Council in the upcoming Epoch? Question 10: While quadratic voting dilutes large stakers from imposing pure plutocracy on governance, it's not sybil resistant. Now that staking has moved over to Optimism, gas is no longer an obstacle for whales to spread out their voting power into multiple wallets to influence governance elections. What's your view on this attack vector and how would you defend against it?  Question 11: Once the protocol produces higher and more consistent income from trading fees, would you support the implementation of an $SNX Buy-Back and Burn mechanism similar to Binance with $BNB?  Question 12: Would you be for or against escrowed stipend for the Council positions?  Question 13: There are a lot of security processes & measures around the Protocol, Development Processes, Smart Contracts & Funds etc. Do you think there are areas that still need improving, and if so where?
