The Graph Council
The Graph Council was introduced in October 2020 as a part of the plans to decentralize the protocol. The members of The Graph Council were inaugurated in December 2020. The Graph Council governs the decentralized Graph Network. A 6-of-10 multisig balances the interests of five different stakeholder groups in the ecosystem: Indexers, token holders, initial team, users and technical domain experts.
The mandate of The Graph Council includes the following core functions:
- 1.The Graph Foundation Operations
- 2.Grants and Ecosystem Funding
- 3.Protocol Upgrades
- 4.Protocol Parameterization
- 5.Emergency Protocol Operations
In the future, it is planned to further decentralize The Graph's governance, for instance by replacing individual members with nested multisigs or DAOs.
