On this episode of Venture Stories, Erik and his co-host Tony Sheng are joined
by Jacob Arluck (@JacobArluck) of Tezos and Peter Czaban of Polkadot and the
Web3 Foundation. The four of them get into the details of the mechanisms of
governance, including voting, councils, and other methods of governance. They
discuss hard forks and why they are not ideal but sometimes necessary. The
group also discusses common misconceptions around on-chain governance and
their requests for products or startups in the space. They explain what it
means to get to the decentralized ideal without re-centralizing when it comes
to governance as well as why the best case scenario for crypto users is that
they are not thinking about governance at all as it recedes into the
background. Co-host Tony Sheng (@tonysheng) leads product at Decentraland. He
also publishes analyses on the business and strategy of crypto at and is one of Village’s Network Leaders. Thanks for listening —
