Fuse Assembly is a governance body formed from particularly active members of the Fuse community. Its formation is the first step in transitioning full governance and ownership over the Fuse platform to the community.
Currently, Fuse Assembly consists of five Fuse ecosystem members independent from Fuse Foundation who have shown consistent dedication and commitment to the project, and already have a voice within the community.
Fuse Assembly's current role includes the following:
taking over the control over the Fuse Forum community discussion platform;
implementing the Snapshot voting mechanism on Fuse; and
managing the Community Token Pool.
Community Token Pool
Fuse Assembly's budget will be initially constituted by the Community Token Pool. Each month, 200,000 FUSE will be allocated to it from the Fuse Bootstrap Pool (discussed here).
Fuse Assembly will regularly distribute the Community Token Pool funds to finance grants, bounties, marketing, and other initiatives designed to serve communities building on the platform and drive innovation.
