Mar 2, 2022

Today's guests are Charles St. Louis and Paul Vienhage from Element Finance. In this episode we go deep on Council, the Element Finance governance framework, which features a few key innovations: Voting Vaults, the Governance Steering Council, and Optimistic Rewards. We also go into the broader philosophy behind Element Finance Governance, and how it differs from existing Governance systems.

Charles St Louis is the COO of Element Finance, and has worked extensively on Governance at Element, and previously at MakerDAO. Paul is the lead engineer at Element, and is responsible for implementing the Council smart contracts.
