I would love for us to gather data that we can analyze to use as information to feed into proposals and the roadmap.
The Vision, Mission, and Values post is a great true north to keep us on track towards where we want to go.
The purpose of this proposal is to help us get an accurate picture of where we are, identify opportunities and priorities.
I think this will help us identify the features that will create the most value for users and thus allow us to prioritize based on data. ie How do we know any of the existing and future proposals hold any merit? Why not give the voters data to fuel their decisions? And at a minimum, the data can help us prioritize between the existing proposals.
- What data do we currently have access to? popular assets, trading pairs, site visits, page views per session, pool sizes, etc…
- How can we gather more data? User surveys, user interviews, polls, chain activity…
In the book “Escaping the Build Trap”, there is a great methodology shown below. I think this helps to ensure you build features that create real outcomes rather than just pushing lots of features and unnecessarily burning through resources.
