Idea Summary: Based on recent rumors and developments, AMPL is likely to be listed for trading on several Centralized exchanges. In the spirit of Decentralized Finance, AMPL should be included in the newly proposed DeFi++ Index by PieDAO.
This instrument includes 13 large and small cap assets in the DeFi sector: COMP AAVE UNI LINK MKR SNX YFI UMA REN LRC BAL PNT MLN

Idea Implementation/Execution: A Pie-Improvement-Proposal (PIP) can be drafted on the PieDAO forum (https://forum.piedao.org/). Next, this PIP can be voted for or against on Aragon (https://client.aragon.org/#/piedao/).
Budget/Cost: Time and Effort associated with executing the above steps.
Idea Timeline: Up to a week.
I like this idea a lot. In fact, something along the lines of creating an “A Team” of individuals in the community who might be interested in helping to drive adoption of AMPL on platforms where governance is required, was something that we in the DAO leadership have discussed a bit internally.
My idea is to:
1. Create a “External Governance” group within the Hub. Then, people interested in helping to drive the uptake of AMPL on platforms that require governance would join that group and use it to plan activities.
2. Use the PieDAO proposal as a good test run for using the External Governance group to organize activity around preparing and posting a governance proposal.
3. After the PieDAO governance proposal is developed and submitted (and hopefully people in that group can help answer PieDAO community questions and objections) we can make the External Governance group a bit more formal.
What we would do is set aside a budget for 1-2 people to “staff” the External Governance group. These people (of a certain minimum community rank and holding the Educated Amplifier badge) would receive a small stipend to engage in regular governance vote planning, proposal development, monitoring and reporting back to the community about status (in collaboration with volunteers).
In order for the budget to be funded, it would need to be turned into an official idea, AmpleSense Progress Proposal and put up for a funding vote by the community. But if the PieDAO effort is successful (even at just getting a good proposal up and managing questions from the PieDAO community), I think it wouldn’t have a hard time passing.)
@jag: What do you think of this expansion of your idea? The first step would be to create the External Governance group and bring in people interested in helping with the PieDAO proposal.
