Im posting this in proposals but this is less of a proposal and more my attempt at putting together a business plan for SushiSwap. We have the right people involved, but unfortunately we lack a bit of structure, which I think this should help with.
This is very high-level, and it introduces some new ideas (compensation, ESG & operational accruals for example), but the core idea is to create a scalable business that can run on its own for decades and beyond. It is not entirely complete, you will see some sections where I request some help, but I would be happy to carve out a community call with @Tangle and go through this and take suggestions, especially from Core Dev.
Ok so lets get into it:
First things first, SUSHI needs STRUCTURE. Step 1 will be to implement the following organizational structure. We have had some of this informally, but this crystallizes direct lines of reporting and accountability which we need:
The above introduces the idea of a full C-Suite who can be voted in/out via governance:
Underneath each will be the current positions we have which the C-Suite will manage according to their wishes without the need for governance on every little decision. Core Dev can discuss who can fill these current positions, and who we need to recruit for. Personally I think we could fill out some of these roles with current team members, but not all, and I’ll refrain from voicing my personal choices for now.
Each role in the org chart above will have specific responsibilities. I have begun to lay them out here: SushiSwap Org Chart Definitions - Google Docs
We know we need this already Pocketsquare!
I hear you. The following is where we get a bit deeper. IE this is where we start thinking about SushiSwap as a scalable business. Step 1 is implementing organizational structure. Step 2 is how we actually push it out of the nest and let it fly. How do we do this? By leveraging the revenue streams that SushiSwap is receiving, deprecating xSUSHI awards ever so slightly (Gasp! I know, I’m an xSUSHI holder too, but hear me out here this will create value beyond a couple APR points) and instituting accruals that will fund various aspects of the business including compensation, marketing & operations.
To create this:
Which will fund this: SushiBar Revenue Streams: - Google Docs
This is all a very rough idea, and I would love to solicit some feedback from the community. Together I think we could polish this up and create a real roadmap for Core & team to implement that will help organize SushiSwap and move it forward without having to have external parties come in and “take over”. Would love to hear from Core here, as well as Arca. Im available outside of the forums/discord if easier.
