Technical Governance Board (TGB)

The Technical Governance Board and the Steward Council held two sessions with the Finance Committee to listen to concerns and feedback around the Economic Policies. The discussions were spirited and explored the rationale of the policies, the specific business impact as well as exchange of ideas around other possible changes and improvements. It is important to note that while these activities continue, the Sovrin Dashboard continues to provide the necessary full transparency to the community about the status of the network and uptime.

Chair: Stephen Curran

Governance Framework (SGFWG)        

The Sovrin Governance Framework Working Group has focused on making the Sovrin Ecosystem Governance Framework ready for approval. The participants have been engaged in refining the statements related to the objectives and policy requirements. The WG continues to discuss the proposal to adopt a greater degree of decentralization in the approach to governance - especially in the context of being more democratic and transparent.
