This elite group will help drive utility and ubiquity for swETH across DeFi.
May 11, 2023
Swell has taken a big step towards decentralization by introducing a key component of community-driven governance: The DAO has appointed the first set of Ecosystem Council members.
This elite group has been selected by the DAO for having deep knowledge of DeFi, and the ability to drive utility and ubiquity for swETH. Each member hails from a different background and brings their own unique perspective to the Council.
Without further ado, here are the first members of the Swell Ecosystem Council:
A builder and crypto-native, Anton Buenavista leads Ecosystem Growth at Pendle — a DeFi protocol that enables the permissionless tokenization and trading of yield on an AMM system.
PhD and former academic, multi-startup founder and solidity developer, Bob Baxley is currently the core builder at Maverick — a revolutionary Dynamic Distribution AMM that provides greater capital efficiency and control for liquidity providers.
Want to take your own role in the Swell Community?
We would like to thank everyone that applied to join the Swell Ecosystem Council.
If your application wasn't selected, rest assured that there will be more opportunities to help shape the future of Swell. The first Ecosystem Council epoch will last for six months, and will be followed by an election in which a new set of council members will be appointed by the DAO.
