Season 2 | Episode 4
In this episode of Bell Curve, Tarun Chitra joins us to discuss the hottest on-chain topic in crypto: DAO treasury management. Even in the bear market, DAOs have over $8.8B in treasury assets. However, these assets are primarily unused, misallocated and lack diversification. Tarun tells us how DAOs should approach the treasury allocation problem and how to hedge risks, create diversification and automate treasury functions. Treasury management will be front-and-center in 2023 - listen to this pod to stay ahead of the narrative!

Musings On Governance (Reverie)
Reserve Protocol aims to protect consumers from the effects of high inflation and hopes to one day eradicate it.
It's a self-service, permissionless factory where anyone can build, deploy and govern their own asset-backed stablecoins (RTokens), which can be integrated within DeFi and real-world commerce.
The Reserve App is a user-friendly way for ordinary people to buy RSV stablecoin with their local currencies and use them locally. More info at https://reserve.org/
