Operation funding is the topic of focus in the latest proposal on the Yearn Finance forum. The proposer – lehnberg – calls the community to vote from Nov 12 to Nov 15 on transforming a budget into an Operations Fund.
The proposed fund will be allocated the same amount of funding continuously. The proposer suggests that governors transform the one-off YIP-41 budget. The new proposal is now live in the forum with the identifying number YIP-54.
New Fund for More Efficient Operations
Proposing a fund in blockchain projects – especially DeFi ones- is not uncommon. Project participant has the option to suggest new ways of funding. They request the project owners to spend earnings and budgets in areas that need more attention – based on their proposal.
The YIP-54 proposal on Yearn Finance focuses on funding operations in the project. The proposer says operational expenses have to be covered by the fund. According to the forum post:
“YIP-36 laid the groundwork for Yearn operations funding. YIP-41 extended this with the inclusion of a one-off operations budget. A forum thread envisioned the Multisig acting as an “operations special interest group”. Today, there are multiple special interest groups (such as development, documentation, governance, branding/design, and communications) that are not directly related to the Multisig but partly financed through the YIP-41 budget. The Multisig acts as an executor of the spending decisions of these groups.”
According to the recent proposal details, there have been more proposals to develop the funding structure in Yearn Finance. They all were looking for a sustainable funding process that covers the continuous growth in the project.
The new proposal on Yearn covers multiple areas. One of the essential proposal topics is permitting the fund to buy back YFI or other digital assets. It helps the fund to trade assets and look for maximum earning.
Quarterly reports are vital parts of the new proposal. As a result of quarterly publishing, YFI holders will have the ability to audit the fund activities.
Funding the operations in Yearn can be done in multiple areas. The proposer suggests some of them:
“Security costs. 3rd party audits, bug bounties, tools. Contributor funding. Recurring payments for full-time contributors, one-off grants, bounties. Third-party products & services. Freelancers, companies. Running costs. Gas expenditure, tools, equipment, infrastructure.”
Yearn.Finance governors can vote on the recent proposal. If they vote for the proposal, a new operation fund will be established for the DeFi project. It will help them cover expenses and increase the speed of development and growth.
