After the departure of @0xMaki as CEO of Sushi, it wasn’t clear who was taking over. In the absence of a clear mandate from the community the existing team members moved on, but the decision making processes aren’t very open and transparent to the community. On top of that there’s friction between team members, that is messy to solve without clear leadership.
We can get into endless mud slinging, but none of this is ultimately productive for the project to move forward and grow.
In the end, Sushi is a community owned project.
I propose that the community elects a new interim CEO for a period of 6 months. I don’t think this should be the final state. There are many good ideas about what the future structure could or should look like, but I don’t think can be reached directly from the current state. We need some strong leadership to take us there.
Since this person will be elected by the community, they will have the mandate from the community to make any changes they feel needed to put Sushi back on track.
Anyone can nominate themselves on this forum post to become the new CEO. Your nomination here can include your pitch: “Why should you be the CEO of Sushi?”
To make the list you need at least 10 likes. A week from now a snapshot will be created with all the nominations and will be open for voting for 1 week.
To attract talent we need to compensate fairly. I propose a 100,000 SUSHI salary for the 6 months + 100,000 SUSHI locked for 2 years.
