Hello @Icedcool,

Thank you for sharing Treasury updates and progress.

Congrats on the tlBANK!

Could you please share more insight on the passes discussion?

And in the funding request - USDC total you are asking is 2 000, right? Assume the 2,00 is the type-o. :slight_smile:

Thank you!

Sure thing, this is all part of the Tokenomics 1.0 initiative to support general value accrual to the DAO.

The phases are generally, that we revise and refine the guest passes, then look at and potentially implement season passes for people that don’t want to lock up BANK in tlBANK for membership.

Does that help?

Awesome - thank you.

I know there’ve been discussion, was curious to learn any updates and potential changes happening.

Appreciate it.
