Understandoff-chain governance

Off-chain governance refers to processes for making decisions that don't require on-chain voting and gathering feedback prior to on-chain voting. Off-chain governance happens on the Maker Governance Forum, where the community meets to propose and discuss new proposals. Anyone can participate in off-chain governance.
