Proposal Details

Core Unit MKR Transfers

As per their successful budget proposals (linked below), a total of 163 MKR will be streamed to multiple Core Units if this executive proposal passes:

Core Unit MKR Stream

As per their successful MKR compensation proposal, 803 MKR will be streamed to the Growth Core Unit (GRO-001) at 0x7800C137A645c07132886539217ce192b9F0528e starting on 2022-07-01 and ending on 2023-07-01, if this executive proposal passes.

Please note, as this is the second MKR vesting stream for this Core Unit, the cliff date for this stream will be set to the start date to enable the Core Unit to vest tokens for contributors that had already reached their 12-month cliff before this stream was established.

Note: the previous stream for the Growth Core Unit for 803 MKR was established in the 2021-12-10 executive vote. When this stream ended, 63.18 MKR remained unclaimed. This transaction from the GRO-001 multi-sig has redirected this stream to the MakerDAO Pause Proxy. As a result, the leftover MKR can no longer be claimed by the Growth Core Unit.

As per this poll, the following changes recommended by the Maker Open Market Committee - Parameter Proposal Group will be made, if this executive proposal passes:
