We are kicking-off an initiative under the name of ‘Product Refinement’ where we expect to run a health check and analysis on the following products that are not among PieDAO’s top performers. These are the products we expect to review in no given order:
- DeFi++ / DeFi+L / DeFi+S
Each case will be presented and reviewed on a dedicated Forum post to allow the community to discuss the presented analysis results. On a later stage, and having passed the PIP gate, the products selected will be revamped or deprecated.
Maintenance has a cost and requires time and effort from the community and the core contributors team. We should put into perspective the cost/benefit of our low performing products and be pragmatic in addressing issues or deprecating them if reasonable.
Overall, this initiative would free up “bandwidth” dedicated to maintenance, that could be more effectively employed on value-adding tasks such as the creation and development of more successful products.
Below the initial considerations regarding the products (assessments pending )
- Decomm YPIE
- Revamp DeFi+S and DeFi+L into DeFi++
- Decomm BTC++
- Decomm or Revamp USD++
Assets and Features
Below the assets and features considered required for this initiative
- Creation of a legacy product page for deprecated products
- Definition of a policy for Social Migration mechanisms (reverse oven)
- Build a KPI driven framework for product health-check
|Product||Health Check||Analysis||Communication||Deprecation||Link to Proposal|
|DeFi++||Done||Done||Snapshot Voting||[PIP-70] DeFi Products revamping|
|YPIE||Done||Done||Snapshot Voting||[PIP-71] YPIE Health-Check|
|USD++||Done||Done||@ Forum||[PIP-72] USD++ Health-Check|
We expect this initiative to serve as a platform for a more clean and efficient use of our resources for maintenance and marketing and to pave the way for new users to navigate through our offering in a simpler way.
Offering an exit to current users, setting up a process that allows continuous checks and allowing to set focus on incentivization of relevant products will take us another good step into success!
