After YIP-41, the multisig was granted supreme authority to rule yearn with an iron . . . wait, nope, actually they were empowered to hire some talent and give out some dough to this amazing community.
This post is to give you an update on how that’s been going.
The Yearn Team Is Growing:
Academic “Public Good”
@devops199fan as “I can help with anything even if you don’t pay me”.
These fine folk have been working non-stop, juggling a million things, and making magic. It’s an honor to work amongst them.
But we do not do it alone. Yearn has the best community yet discovered by science—and something that’s crystal clear is that a big part of our job is to support this community in doing even more. People are getting mad on discord because sometimes they have to wait in order to work for yearn for free. This . . . is amazing. Never seen something like this. We have a lot to do to understand this and develop even more ways to support and engage this energy. And by we, I mean you. (And us).
And while it will take time and experimentation to harness our full collective intelligence and strength, one way we can fuel those muscles right away is to give out grants.
Here is the first round of community grants!! (Paid in yUSD )

These grants are just the start, and they are only one of many ways we will be able to support each other in building yearn further. I would like to ask you each to start gift lists. Who is killing it? Who needs our support? Every one of us sees someone doing amazing things for this community. Let’s give grants and let’s invent even better ways to reward each other and thrive together.
So, thank you all. Keep it up. It only gets better. FEW.
