Polkadex Council x Core Contributors

Scope of Work 🀝

Since the passing of Treasury Proposal #47 last month, the Polkadex Core Contributors and Polkadex Council have been working more closely than ever before.

Throughout the last few weeks, the Council has assessed the existing Polkadex roadmap and, together with the Core Contributors, has defined the Scope of Work for the following months (Q2 and beyond).

In order to fulfil the goals set in the Scope of Work agreement, the Polkadex Core Contributors have set new priorities and have re-allocated internal resources accordingly.

Overall, the Council and the Core Contributors have decided on a path forward which includes a renewed commitment to the Polkadot ecosystem and onboarding new trading pairs, accelerating the transition into a DAO, and improving the reliability & user experience of Orderbook.
