Tribeca is an open source protocol for launching decentralized autonomous organizations on Solana. It is heavily inspired by the designs of Compound and Curve governance. Tribeca is built and maintained by builders from several of Solana’s leading protocols and organizations, including: Arrow, aSOL, Atrix, Cashio, CLB, Crate, Delta One, Friktion, Goki, Pole, Port, Quarry, Saber, Sencha, Serum, Ship Capital, Sunny, and Traction. Solana applications have historically been relatively centralized compared to their counterparts on Ethereum. Smart contract code is often closed source, and programs are freely upgradeable by teams. We believe the main reason for this is that it is simply too hard to create code in an open and decentralized way due to lack of common tooling for teams to use. Tribeca attempts to solve this problem by creating a powerful yet extensible framework for governance. The initial release of Tribeca features an on-chain voting system coupled with a system to create and manage proposals, similar to Compound. It also features an optional primitive for vote-locking tokens to encourage long term staking, similar to veCRV. Our mission is to increase the decentralization of the Solana network; that is, to make it cost-prohibitive to take down a protocol. By offering high quality governance products to all protocols, we believe that more protocols will default to giving more power to their users; that is, teams will launch tokens faster as the barriers to creating DAOs drop dramatically.
