Open Work Labs

  • Finishing up the signing system.
  • Profile boilerplate up & running.
  • Pinning architecture on forum

Aragon Mesh

  • CLI. Cleaning stuff on the documentation, issue templates, refactoring. Trying to figure out where we are now and what could the roadmap be for the next versions.
  • Work on apm publish by jorge (will be releasing soon, so you can publish a new version with a vote)
  • Work on the CLI extensibility on-going
  • Working on documentation and testing for next few weeks


  • No one from Authio

ConsenSys Diligence

  • Reviewed the last aragon-apps PRs, minor changes
  • Compiling summary of network audit needs among various projects

Aragon Black

  • Focused on bonding curve and batched order system—should be ready before next all dev call
  • Working with Patty on frontend.
  • Talking with Luke about best user perspective on Apiary. How does bonding curve work? How should it be used by a user?
  • Taking IPLD/git object and turning it into easy to use javascript objects.
  • Update and commit things from the browser without CLI. Use cases are things like drafting proposal. Working on frontend lib for this.


  • By next call Aragon Network Vote #2 will be completed.
    • Vote opens Thursday, Apr. 25
    • Move tokens to the wallet you're going to vote with before the vote starts.
  • Aragon UI released.
  • Includes components for Identities Provider
  • Staging is available for testers. Especially those that are familiar with Aragon and have organizations.
  • Will be making updates over next few days before 0.7 release.


  • App Center.
    • Discover apps panel: curated lists of application. TPS, Pando, Espesso and Aragon One apps.
    • Ask @sohkai on Rocket chat to get your app listed (and how!)
  • Organization identity —> forum post

    • Similar UX to permissions app.
    • If we're designing apps, devs should think about widgets.
    • Make it easier for a user see votes and vote.
    • Will try to support a few different blog solutions. Rss feeds.
    • Ideas to connect chat apps with widgets to see org chat.
    • Where is data going to be stored?
    • Where do we want content blocks?
  • IPFS Pinning

    • REST API as well as our own node.
    • Our API can handle requests from clients and pin to node providers. We can pin to multiple additional services.
    • We can store that data in traditional dbs like mongo so we can query and cache data. This still allows for content verifiability.
    • Textile uses developer keys and JWTs. We could use this to help build authentication but needs to fleshed out.
    • Signing messages doesn't prevent ddos.
    • We could look at permissions or ANT levels.
    • Every org has it's own backend and pin files themselves instead of having one large service that serves every organization.
    • We could have this resource at a network level. Could be distributed to flock teams.
    • Filecoin could be integrated into this. Need to look into ethereum-filecoin integrations.
    • See in-progress implementation: openworklabs/pinning-service.
