#08 - Weekly SIP Call - Increasing Bitcoiners participation (SIP=Stacks Improvement Proposal)

Dear all Stackers and contributors!

Would like to share the recent effort we kick-started, to grow & expand the SIP process
(SIP stands for Stacks Improvement Proposal). We have been having weekly SIP calls for the past 8 weeks now, every Friday 11AM EST - We had 35 attendances today! One of the biggest turn out ever!

  • :speech_balloon: This week we were lucky to have heavy hitters in the Stacks ecosystem in the room, @jude from Stacks Foundation, @OwensTrevor from Stacks Ventures, @yukan from Xverse, @markmhendrickson from Hiro, Mrk from Megapont, discussing everything to do with how to make Bitcoin addresses more productive, and link closer to Stacks, that allows more seamless operation when and if they wanna trigger smart contract to participate in web 3 functionalities, such as sending listing NFTs, participate in DAOs and their treasury, etc.
